I’ve had my trusty “Easter tree” for years now. When I first put this up everyone thought I was mad…But now, Easter decorations are absolutely everywhere and slowly people are starting to think I’m less mad… :)
With Easter just around the corner I’ve started to think about how I’m going to get the house ready, and what bits I need to add to my collection. Today I’m sharing what I think, are the essential Easter decorations…oh yes there is such a thing as an essential Easter decoration!
I am just loving the botanical trend that’s everywhere at the moment! I wish, wish, wish I was brave enough to embrace the trend fully with floor to ceiling leafy wallpaper or a floral print sofa! But I’m sorry to say I’m not (even if I was, I think I’d struggle to persuade the hubby on this one!) But when I look at these gorgeous images I am seriously tempted…
Wall art is one of my favourite things to buy! It’s so easy to change the look of a room just by adding or updating prints and pictures.
The vintage map above the fireplace in my living room was the first thing I bought, and the look of the room really came from this. I chose the grey wall colour to make the map stand out, and added gold accessories throughout the room to match the frame. As soon as I put the map on the wall, the room just seemed to come together.
Recently I’ve been experimenting a little more with texture, it’s a brilliant way to add interest and depth to your home.
There are many ways in which you can add texture, the first and perhaps most obvious way, is by adding a rug. Santa bought me a beautiful diamond shaggy rug this year which has made such a difference to my living room.
