Spring….

Last night, whilst walking my dogs, I could hear birds singing and smell spring in the air. Although – granted, I woke up this morning to a hard frost it pays to be optimistic, and it certainly seems to be getting dark later. Spring is on the way.

This month at Glow we are focusing on fresh new colours for spring and looks we are in love with this season.

I am a huge fan of colour and love wearing bright colours, they seem to cheer me up and brighten up dreary days. Over the last few years I have been slowly injecting more and more colour into our home, without really realising. Last summer I spray painted my tired, inherited (from my parents) Lloyd loom chairs. They went from a drab deep cream to bright pastel shades of pistachio, rose pink and baby blue, topped with handmade cushions, adorned with vivid pompoms made by my wonderfully talented Mother in law. My kitchen has never looked happier and more vibrant. Not only did it transform our kitchen, it also cost very little.

With this in mind, whilst chatting to a lovely (interior designer) friend of mine about colours and personal taste, we mutually agreed that colour is a very personal thing, you shouldn’t be afraid of using it in your home and creating bold palettes which stand out and say “this is me”….

Whether your base be neutrals which are then embellished with colour pops of bright hues, using cushions, throws, cables and accessories. Or you choose bold paint colours which are then accentuated with accessories.

Luckily at Glow, we love Green, and spring is all about green this year. Not only does green look fabulous, if you look at colour psychology it also has many other benefits; being a tranquil colour which represents nature. It is believed to promote calm, relieve stress and even increase fertility!

We have introduced a small range of limited edition spring cables which we hope you love as much as us, so go forth and be brave, you won’t regret it.
