As spring is here and Easter is just around the corner, it’s time to freshen up your home inside and out.
Firstly, take a look around your doorstep and make sure you get rid of your dead winter plants if you haven’t already!
Extend your living space into the fresh air and bring the growing spirit of spring into your home as well. Although it’s a tad too early to dive onto a sun bed, make sure you still have a little chair or stool for your outdoor coffee in case the sun decides to appear.
For your kitchen, it’s a nice idea to display your seasonal herbs – arrange them in your largest pots or bowls and let them grow wild on your window sill. For something long-lasting at your table, use beautiful narcissus, hyacinths or daffodils in pots to your liking. They look simply stunning in a rustic or terracotta flowerpot, as though they are still in the garden. If you delay the watering, they will last longer before they spring and will look amazing with their light green freshness, before they flower.
For your doorstep green boxwood always does the job, and by adding pots of daffodils or a similar flower you can create your little spring oasis. If you didn’t plant the bulb in the autumn as you intended to, don’t worry, as you can buy them for instant use as well.
One principle in interior design which I find very applicable when it comes to decoration with flowers, is to keep your pots and displays as large as possible. It looks more tidy and decorative!
If you have a lot of small pots, it’s nice to group them together instead of spreading them out.
The one to follow for inspiration is definitely the danish author and garden enthusiast Claus Dalby.
