Spring in the Home: Key pieces to transform your dining room into a pastel palace

I'm Spring homeware




Spring has officially sprung - yay!



And I always find at this time of year I want to lighten things up a bit and change things up in the home to reflect the prettiness of spring.

This doesn't have to mean getting your overalls on, roller in hand to redecorate the whole room.

If you have a fairly neutral theme on the walls and floor you can changes key pieces with the seasons to transform the whole look of the room and add a new lease of life.

Spring to me means Easter pastels and I have started to add splashes of baby pinks, blues, greens & yellows to my dining room to start with.

Small things together make a huge difference.

Over Autumn & winter I channelled a woodland/ country/ Scottish theme in the dining room with a red tartan throw on the sofa with stag and owl cushions, a hessian rug on the floor, framed woodland prints on the wall and red tablecloth.

With no decorating whatsoever, now look at it!




I have given the chairs a fresh coat of paint which they were desperate for! With having 3 grubby children, sometimes repainting every 6 months is the only thing for it.


I used Wilko furniture and cupboard paint which is fab as there is no need to sand before painting or wax after and is £12.95 for 0.75l which I used less than 1/4 of a pot of each colour.

I also recovered the seats with a white stain resistant tablecloth from B&M for a few pounds which did 5 chairs easily.

Another way to add colour is seasonal flowers. 

I just love daffodils in spring and they add a nice zesty colour in amongst all of the pastels in the room. 

The yellow 'Smile and Be Happy' vase is from Wilko's too.


Bunting immediately makes me think of spring/ summer and is a perfect way to add a splash of colour.

This Easter inspired chick & stripe bunting is handmade.


On the sofa, I have added two pale green spot cushions from Dunelm mill and an Easter inspired hessian bunny cushion which was a charity shop find.


Spring sunshine makes me happy. It makes me want to sing and dance!

So I have added this Goodman's Oxford II DAB radio. It comes in a variety of colours but this lovely pale pink is 'BonBon' and is £69.99.

Not only does it add colour to a little corner in my dining room that was otherwise very dull, it also exudes style with it's 1960's retro design.


I always like to have water available on the table for the children to help themselves as and when they want so this Brita water filter jug is perfect with its pastel green lid!

This too comes in a huge variety of new colours to choose from to add a splash of colour to your kitchen or table. The green is 'Soft grass' and is £22.99.



The pastel spot tablecloth is from Dunelm mill.

I stick with plain white dinnerware but you could update yours in spring colours? Add a colourful rug? A spring print on the wall?

The possibilities are endless.
