Edited Choice: Add bold spring shades to every room with these colourful homewares



Adding a few seasonal shades to your home décor scheme is simple with the right colourful homewares. We’ve chosen a few of our favourites from ACHICA for bringing bright, fresh tones to every room in the house…

In the living room...

The quirky cushions by Téo Jasmin will certainly add boy-racer excitement to a sofa or armchair. We’re particularly taken by the retro 2CV cushion covers from the Vintage Cars Collection. They’d look fab set against neutral toned upholstery and paired with cushions in matching shades.

In the kitchen...

Who says spring-cleaning has to be dull? The design team at Normann Copenhagen certainly doesn’t think so. Its bright and innovative rubber Washing Up Bowl gives a gorgeous pop of colour in the kitchen while being flexible and durable. Available in a variety of hues, it also comes complete with a pig-bristle brush crafted in beech wood. There’s also no need to keep it confined to the sink, the beautiful design is multifunctional, acting equally as well as a storage tub or even champagne cooler!



In the hall...

Nothing says spring more than freshly cut flowers, and placing them in the hallway is a great way to brighten the entrance to your home. We love the idea of dotting a selection of these contemporary Cube vases from Chive across a shelf, windowsill or mantelpiece. Small but perfectly formed, each boldly coloured Cube is ideal for holding a single stem flower for a statement look.

 



In the bathroom...

Décor schemes are often the easiest to update here, thanks to bathrooms generally featuring sleek, neutral fittings. Simply adding a heavenly soft towel stack in an up-to-date colour, such as the Mayfair towel in Teal will instantly bring a fresh look to your bathroom. Or at least tied you over until you decide to completely redecorate.



In the dining room...

Don’t be afraid to bring bold shades to the dinner table. The exquisite artisan tabletop pieces of CHH Design will add exotic charm to every meal, even if bangers and mash is on the menu! Each piece is meticulously hand-painted and unique. We've got our eye on the Diversity set of Napkin Rings, ideal for jazzing up dinner parties, while the Cow Butter Dish will certainly brighten up breakfast.



For the bedroom...

While spring is just around the corner (it’s been a long-time coming, we know), the mornings and evenings haven’t brightened up just yet, so a cheerfully coloured lamp in the bedroom is an essential home accessory at this time of year. These Anya Table Lamps with jewel-tone shades, from the lighting design experts at Heathfield & Co, are ideal. They're available in Olive, Peacock and Violet, colours that are set to be big news in Spring 2013, and we’re finding it hard to choose our favourite…
