Hurrah for March! It’s the arrival Spring in my books…a brighter month which feels like time to unfurl, stretch, be up and doing…longer days, a touch of warmth to the sun against lingering chilly air, and an all round chippier vibe – good stuff…and flowers…lots & lots of blooms!
I want blooming bulbs in every room right now, so I started with our bedroom for my Styling the Seasons March story…
This month is also all about the girls for me…with International Women’s Day, Mother’s Day & (ahem) my Birthday (the second most important day of the year, obvs!) I wanted to create a distinctly feminine feel in this little space, particularly as I’ve been adding darker shades to our room lately, in order to “man it up” a little for D!
I find it rather poignant that Mother’s Day also falls on my birthday this year. To represent this, I included a candle (made from Katy’s fab tutorial), and one of my favourite baking books, ‘Love Bake Nourish’ (I’m looking forward to lots of cake this weekend!), and I had to go through our old family albums a couple of weeks ago & came across this beautiful photo of Ma. The little tree pots were my Mum’s and were always on our bathroom windowsill as we grew up in our family home – I treasure these. And Boo is not forgotten of course…I added a little shell she found on our adventures – she collects so many little treasures which are saved awhile and then returned to nature, but this particular one has been carefully preserved & kept in one of her (many) little jewellery boxes.
My french vintage ‘le parfait’ jar, and the little green Wade were antique & charity shop finds. I’ve waited ages to find the perfect plant for the tiny little space in the Wade, and the Muscari bulbs were just the right fit!
So there we are, cake, blooms & mama love…I like March alot, how about you?
