Updating my interiors when a new season rolls round is one of my favourite things to do; lighter colours, new pieces to add personality and also more pillows which tbh I always need more pillows – staging and all, the perfect bedspread to sink into each evening.
I have been picking up pieces over the last few months, but on a recent trip to Homesense I just had to get those last few touches to make my place feel ready for the warmer months and guess what – not all of it was blue. I know, shocker. It seems lately that I’ve been liking other colours and prints so I’ve been incorporating the right pieces into my blue-based life to add a bit of WOW in my minimalistic bedroom, and it looks pretty fabulous.
Firstly these Cream and Duck Egg Floral Pillows were just too eye-catching not to pick up, and I love easily layered they are with one another. The embroidery on the cream pillow stands out more to me with the deep blues woven in, and any of the tones pick up perfectly in the remaining pillows, and I’m still debating whether to put them on the sofa or leave them on my bed for extra comfort, but my dream scenario is a grey/pale blue sofa with these strewn across for comfort and a hint of character. Dreamy.
As I said, my plan is to layer, and this dusty, mint green Geometric Pillow is the perfect tie-in and balance between all the pillows I picked up; you always need something plain in colour to break up the craziness, and this one is by means plain in texture – it’s soft and has a dynamic print that won’t overwhelm too much, but is still a great focus piece wherever placed. So far, I’ve been keeping it with this last pillow, something very much out of my ordinary style – a slate blue Oriental inspired floral cushion with flecks of green and pinks. It’s not something I’d normally pick but when you know, you know – the colours were just eye-catching and complimented the more mint and soft blue shades in my room and purchases, and with the warmer months coming it’s nice to have a statement piece to break up the calmer tones (it’ll also look fabulous against the silver and greys of my winter homeware, so double points for this beauty).
I haven’t actually mentioned this on the blog but you can see me talking about them on my channel – I upgraded my bedding to something a lot more Lauren and spring with a Striped Light Blue and White Duvet (as seen under the pillows); it’s soft and waffled but not too heavy, it really makes the room feel light and cosy plus it contrasts well with some, ahem, other pillows I picked up – a Royal Blue and White Rectangle with a velvet touch, really picking out the blues in my usual pillows on display. Totally gorgeous and always makes the room feel clean and bright.
Finally, this Blue Turkish Tile was a real find on the shelf as it was my kind of pattern and colour, and you always need a good flatlay prop or base for your mirror that adds a sneaky bit of colour to a minimal dressing table. It’s a great size and was a total bargain too, anything for a bit of blue.
Now, someone please stop me buying any more pillows before we class this as a problem – but keep on sending me blue homewares and Homesense bargains, I love that….
Have you updated your room or home for Spring? Will you be shopping at Homesense? Do you like any of these purchases?
