At last, after what seems like the longest winter, we have had a gloriously sunny Spring weekend. The aconites are blooming on Christ’s Pieces and the daffodils are peeping out on New Square and here at Angel + Blume we have welcomed spring into the office by displaying the beautiful Pierre Frey fabric Espalier on a canvas on the back wall of the studio.
Below is our choice of green and yellow fabrics, furniture and accessories which will allow you to bring a little bit of spring into your homes and gardens without involving a major decorating exercise.
This beautiful selection of fabrics is from Osborne & Little’s Spring 2013 collection and the clever combination of vibrant lime green with more subdued greys and black makes them perfectly understated and eminently usable in any room.
This simple, pretty and extremely ‘spring like’ Cushion Cover is a design called Hedgerow by Angie Lewin at St Jude’s. The three colour design is screen printed in the UK and comes in two other colour ways.
Also by Angie Lewin, Dandelion 1 in Pale Green and Sage is slightly more subdued but also comes in the more vibrant Sage and Yellow combination. The cushion covers measure 45x45cm and cost £32 each.
Zoffany’s Town and Country Collection
The curtains in this bedroom are from Zoffany’s recent Town and Country Collection. Once again, the combination of zesty lime green with shades of grey make the fabric really user friendly whilst still allowing that energizing splash of bright colour.
If you’re looking to brighten up your child’s bedroom or nursery then look no further than this delightful desk and chair set from molly-meg. Les Gambettes little Suzie child’s chair in Lemon yellow is a fantastic design with a distinct 50’s feel made from formica and metal. It comes in a beautiful choice of retro colours and costs £68.
The matching desk is £170.
Emma Bridgewater never fails to deliver and her jaunty Daffodil Mug priced at £19.99 will brighten up breakfast time, coffee time or anytime you fancy a quick cuppa.
Its not too soon to be thinking about having that cup of tea in the garden either, if you’re lucky enough to have a sheltered spot and this lovely little patio set will fit in even the tightest space. It affords you limited maintenance as it is constructed in metal and designed to imitate wood and folds for easy storage.

And if it still feels a bit nippy then this jolly throw from The Great English Outdoors is just what you need to cover up.
