How to “Pop” some Spring into your home

Spring is a great time to freshen up your home by bringing in new pops of colour. As the outdoors springs back to life with fresh leaves on the trees and colours of emerging flowers bursting onto the scene, it is a perfect time to review the look of our homes.

Start by decluttering the Winter woes and giving your home a good Spring clean.

Next - bring the colours of spring indoors. Look for areas in your home that will benefit from a pop of colour - living areas and bedrooms are a great place to start.

  • A few new cushions on your lounge or bed can liven up the whole room, check out some of our new eco-friendly floral cushions!

 
  • Freshen up your table with a new floral look - a tablecloth, placemats or a runner are good ideas to add some versatile colour into your dining area.

 
  • Wall art is a fantastic way to bring a fresh look to your walls without the expense of painting. We have a range of limited and open edition floral prints available online.

 
  • If you prefer a more rustic look, our new neutral cushions are a great way to add some pattern to your home.

 

Lastly, to complement your textiles, bring a few green plants in and place them around your home. We are loving the String of Hearts plant (Ceropegia Woodi) at the moment - it features sweet little heart-shaped leaves that cascade down. This one can be found at www.botanyshop.co.uk

Sarah Blythe can also create bespoke designs if you have particular colours or flowers in mind- contact us to discuss your ideas!

Birth Month Flowers - April

Spring is definitely in the air now. Days are getting longer and warmer which encourages a whole host of brightly coloured blooms.

African Daisy

African Daisy

A popular “sunny” star amongst these is the DAISY - thought to symbolise purity, innocence, true love and new beginnings.

Daisies have been around, in one form or another, for four thousand years. In the last millennium they have become a favourite of the English culture - children’s games (daisy chains), predicting fortune in love (“He loves me, He loves me not”) and even used in herbal medicine.

But now my own delights I make,
My thirst at every rill can slake,
And gladly Nature’s love partake
Of Thee, sweet Daisy!
— Wordsworth

Our Daisy print is now available to purchase over at Not On The High Street! This sweet Daisy print features the petals of the deconstructed flower, and has been photographed in natural light which gives a lovely 3D feel.

This gorgeous botanical print can be personalised with a name or date to make it that extra meaningful gift. If you prefer a more minimal look without text then you can select this from the drop down menu. These floral prints are also a lovely addition to a childs room.

Spring at last! March releases all the beauty of nature stored over winter. The daffodil is one of the most vibrant flowers and represents Spring and new beginnings.

A member of the narcissus family, the fresh yellow shades remind us of the coming of sunnier days and happiness.

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” Luther Burbank

  We are very excited that the daffodil will be the first of our new range of birth flower art prints to be released on Not on the Hign Street. https://www.notonthehighstreet.com/sarahblythe/product/personalised-daffodil-birth-flower-print

Birth Month Flowers - February

 

Flowers are used to convey many special meanings and feelings. There is at least one flower to represent each month of the year.

In the U.K. February is represented by the iris or violet. 

The blue iris brings meaning of faith, hope, wisdom and courage whilst the blue violet symbolises love and faithfulness.

Sarah Blythe will soon be releasing a new range of art prints featuring birth flowers. Whilst some of our art prints are available as ready made, bespoke orders are also available for products such as baby wraps, tote bags and scarves. These would make ideal gifts for the arrival of a new baby, a birthday gift for a friend or even an anniversary gift for a loved one!
