Spring Clean for Easter!

A crisp, sunny start to March signals the arrival of Spring so time to clear away those Winter warmers and freshen up for Easter! A clean colour palette of gentle chalk tones add a light touch to the home. A tender colour palette of Duck Egg Blue, Leaf, Zinc, Hen's egg, Twig and Blossom refresh and renew.

Favourite Easter Pinterest boards: 
- 'Easter' by Marja van der Neut


For more information on anything shown in the above images please click on the names under each photograph to go through to their respective web sites. I create my mood boards/colour palettes with a computer programme called Photoshop by Adobe which is available for both Apple Mac and PC computers.

The colour swatches shown above I create as a suggestion for furnishings, carpets, ornaments, fixtures, fittings and paints. They do not come from manufacturers charts but I am sure that if you want to use them for paint shades that your favourite supplier will be happy to help match them. 

As always, if I have featured your photograph and you would rather I didn't, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will remove it with my sincerest apologies. 

With warmest wishes

Hello Glenda,
What an inspirational Easter post! I do have to start thinking about Easter decoration, but I am so very busy that I really find no time to decorate my home for Easter yet. And we are in the middle of our living room redo , so I will only have to decorate my kitchen and dining room for Easter!
Thank you for all the inspiration and all the links!

Glenda,
Thanks for taking the time to answer my question re the pineapple light. Just goes to show that great style doesn't always mean big bucks. You just have to recognize it.
Thank you for visiting my blog too!
Best,
Steve

Happy Weekend!
