Spring Flowers

It’s still cold outside, but at least there’s a little sign of Spring, the Snowdrops are appearing, and the sunshine is highlighting areas that need a little attention in our home, I’m sure a few of you are the same.  It’s time for painting with our Zoffany and Farrow and Ball range, F & B is traditionally an archival pallette perfect for period looks and we tend to us Zoffany’s hues with our contemporary schemes.  The latest wallpapers for Zoffany will be shown in next weeks blog they’re stunning.  Or why not just freshing up the decor with new cushions and accessories.  I love the vibrancy of spring flowers and it’s carried through in designs for wallpaper and fabric in a lot of new ranges this year.  Some pictures to get us in the mood.

We dug up a clump of snowdrops and potted them into old terracotta pots, pushing some moss around to cover the soil.
