Here, individual floral sprigs have made place settings extra special. Whether you go for a simple bunch of daffodils, a potted hyacinth or some backyard cuttings, flowers really can help blow away the winter blues.
Why not turn your next cuppa into an event by treating yourself to a lovely teapot or coffeepot, plus matching cups? This cool vintage set has plenty of retro attitude and looks stylish in and out of use.
If your duvet cover is looking threadbare, perhaps it’s time to invest in a new one. If you usually pick plain linens but want to dip your toe into pattern, trying mixing up for bed linens. Here, patterned pillowcases are teamed with plain sheets. Finally, luxuriate under the covers until the spring sunshine arrives.
Instead, let the light in and make the most of the view from your room. Clean the glass so it sparkles, plant daffodils in pots on sills and throw open curtains (or even get rid of them entirely). If you’d like a greener view, start planning one now — gardens are often as much about how they look from inside the house as how they look on the outside.
Tip: A vintage-style radio is another way to add a little extra pleasure to ordinary days at home.
