That Spring Clean Feeling in 5 Easy Steps
Article posted: October 7, 2014
As soon as the weather starts to warm up we get the urge to spring clean! Open all the windows, shake out the cold and damp of winter and make everything fresh and new again. We’ve got a few easy steps to making your home feel fresh and new so that you can focus on enjoying the school holidays and the warm change!
As with all fresh produce, flowers are cheaper and more beautiful when they are in season. Spring is a time when seemingly everything is in season. Radiant bunches of peonies, fragrant lilac, and especially delicate spring blossoms! Japonica blossoms, magnolia blossoms, dogwood blossoms and cherry blossoms – you will find the most delicate blooms of the flower world sold on their branches at the Camberwell Market Florist. Bring a branch of blossoms into your home and instantly the mood will change.
Gorgeous fresh flowers require a suitable vessel to display and preserve them. We particularly love the vases by Mud Ceramics. These locally made, hand crafted pieces come in a range of styles and sizes. Discrete pastels like pistachio, citrus and mist or bright, bold feature colours like wasabi, orange and plum present the perfect vessel for your springtime blooms. We love the clean lines and minimalist aesthetic, we love the sophisticated yet earthly finish of the pieces, we love the dishwasher safe functionality of the design. See the full range at Minimax Camberwell and other premium retailers.
It is amazing what a couple of brightly coloured cushions can do to brighten your entire living room! We love Mercer + Reid’s Water Colour Garden range available from Adairs Camberwell. Featuring vibrant images of birds and spring blooms such as Water Colour Garden Cherry Blossom, Flora, Robin and Polly, these cushions will bring your living room to life.
Brightly coloured and beautifully scented Woodwick candles from Paper Republic, once lit, will fill your home with sweet, fruity or floral fragrance and chase away the winter chill. Using the highest quality soy wax and premium fragrances, these delicate scents are a natural way to freshen the air.
5. Iced Tea Jugs
Spring is the perfect time to get out into the garden and enjoy the warm sunny weather before the oppressive heat of summer. And the perfect accessory for enjoying the sun is tall, frosted glass of iced tea! Whether entertaining a garden party or reading a book in the sun, we just love T2’s iced tea jugs. Available in 1.2L and 2L sizes – both sizes are designed to fit neatly into the door of your fridge and the airtight lid will lock in freshness and prevent spills even if the jug is lying down!
