Bring a Splash of Spring Into Your Home

Darcie Thompson-Fields

Looking to bring a splash of spring into your home?  Maria Speake, founder of Retrouvius,’ a salvage company and design practice, has just the solution!  Featured in Elle Decoration she offers refreshing simple ideas.  What’s more, they’re perfectly suited to compact urban homes and hard-to-fill spaces...

  • Don’t blast spaces with artificial light. Task lighting is environmentally friendly and can provide the spirit that oil lamps once brought to Georgian homes. The flicker of candlelight is perfect for night time too
  • Do have plants in your home – not stiff flowers but living vases
  • Do remember that small rooms can be wonderful – so opening up a space isn't always the best solution.  Colour, wallpaper and fabrics can have a much greater impact when they’re not competing

She says:  It’s easy to overlook the change of seasons – particularly in London where winter and summer merge – so I’ll bring spring bulbs into my home.  I’ll swap textiles from wool and cashmere to linen...I’ll also move furniture nearer to windows to take advantage of increased light levels.
