2. Throw Blankets and Florals:
As it can still be a little chilly in early spring, keeping a throw blanket handy in your living room is a good idea just in case you feel the chills. In this setting, a plaid blanket over an off-white sofa combined with a floral cushion cover makes for a cozy book reading corner.
3. Blue Ginger Jars
The arrival of spring means longer days and more social gatherings. It’s best to put your best foot forward when it comes to cutlery. And what’s better than our Indian Heritage? More of it! These Jaipur Blue Pottery Jars are widely available and make for a visually appealing Jar set in which you can store anything from pickles to Pringles. If blue isn’t your colour, you can always personalise the ceramic Jars.
4. Spray Bottle Wall Art –
This one makes for a fun activity for the kids in the house, and at the same adds sprinkles to your hallway. This chic DIY wall art is as basic as it gets. Simply apply random colors in a pattern you like on a blank white canvas. Prop up the canvas vertically, then liberally spray it with water, allowing the paint to drip down. When the surface is dry, apply gold or silver leaf to it with leaf adhesive and a small detail paintbrush, and you’re done! You now have a brand-new piece of custom artwork to be hung or framed for a more streamlined appearance.
