How to Have an Easy Spring Home Refresh

Let’s look forward. Please. Days are most definitely getting longer. Green shoots are poking through the frosty ground. The Winter sun is casting deeper shadows. Here we show you how to have a little reinvent of some key areas at home, mixing up the old and the new, to celebrate Spring’s imminent arrival.

The Inspiration

 

Deliveries to the shop continue apace. We were delighted to be unpacking boxes of Mosser Glass and Costa Nova this week. We are thrilled with our new seersucker table linen. We are very fond of Dave on the market and his flower stall is awash with anemones, primroses and hyacinths. And we love nothing better than playing house. Check out our ideas for having a Spring interiors refresh, incorporating a few old possessions with some beautiful new things and a healthy dose of fresh flowers.

The Hall Table

 

Or in this case, a vintage metal trolley. Pots of anemones and hyacinth bulbs are the focus here. Greet your guests with joy and colour and make your hallway really welcoming this Spring. We’ve taken a simple palette of anemone blue, white and green. The anemones are waiting to go into the ground outside but are taking a moment at the waystation that is the entrance hall. We’ve used Costa Nova cereal bowls (and ancient terracotta plant pots from the garage) to prettify the plastic pots. Make sure you keep them watered as they will need a bit more to drink if they’re inside. We’ve used the Mosser panel pitcher for the cut flowers. There’s also a nice selection of books in case your guests need to while away some time. And a handy Bistro saucer plate for keys. May I also direct you to our lovely mail, courtesy of the ever gracious @immieowen.

The Coffee Table

 

Or in this case, wooden bench. We always shy away from a coffee table styling exercise (books, empty tea cups and socked feet surely?) but we had fun with this one, not least because it involved trundling the sofa to a new home under the window (and we love to have a move around). We like layers. We like layers when we’re dressing the mannequins for the shop window. We like layers when we’re dressing a coffee table. The brand new Mosser Gigi jug sits atop a vintage platter (model’s own, I say model but those who know me will be guffawing at the vanity of the statement) which in turn sits atop a pile of books both old and new. Dress your tray (Kaymet gold here) with a pearl teacup of primroses and a scented candle. It’s the perfect spot for some old fashioned correspondence (handpainted card courtesy of Scribble & Daub).

The Mantlepiece

 

Taking inspiration from the colours of the cyclamen painting (a lovely junk shop find and again, more guffawing, model’s own), we’ve filled Mosser panel tumblers with hyacinth bulbs (a collection of these would make a perfect present for a dear friend) and also filled the flatbed of an old tin truck (again, but the laughing is getting upsetting now, model’s own).


The Window Sill

 

We are lucky enough to have a very deep silled window at the back of the shop which is the perfect spot for a little Spring vignette. A quick sprint round the shelves at home and a harvest of random vintage finds are mixed with new glassware. We’ve used a brass frame for a postcard sized collage (you could also use a selection of frames to mount pressed flowers and leaves. To press the flowers, arrange them in the desired position, sandwich them between sheets of paper underneath a pile of books and leave for 10 days). The Projektityyny cushion adds a bit of comfort to the upright chair. Keep the colour palette harmonious for a place of peaceful reflection.

Everything and the Kitchen Sink

 

This is very much a hidden corner of The Hambledon. Beautify the most mundane areas of your own home with flowers. The view from our kitchen window here is a little lack lustre so we’ve gone for height with the milk glass cakestand to screen out some of the less than scenic brickwork. Group flowers in odd numbers, I have no idea why but it is a true fact. And again, recourse to old terracotta pots is a very good thing.

 

With thanks, as ever, to Amy and Harriett. To create your own Spring refresh The Hambledon wherewithal is this way. Root around your cupboards at home for your very own vintage finds to accessorise.
