After what feels like the longest winter ever, the lighter days of spring are here and we’re all on board to bring that new season loveliness into our homes. And the good news is there are such simple ways to do it, Jord Founder Gemma Wright invites us into her home to share her favourite ways to welcome spring into your home.
Features Alis super soft sheepskin
Our homes have worked incredibly hard this winter becoming a hub of activity for the whole family & we are all ready to embrace the change of the new season . Spring is the perfect time to create a sense of serenity with layers of soothing shades in calming tones. “I’ve always loved a neutral colour pallette and fresh spring sun light really highlights those milky shades I’ve used throughout my home” says Gemma. “They give a sense of space and openness that are soothing after a busy day”.
Features Icelandic sheepskin in natural
‘’We’re lucky to have doors that open out on to the garden and I’m longing for the days when we can fling them open all day long” says Gemma. “But for now having our dining table positioned so we can sit and over look our outside space really feels like we can enjoy spring in the garden from the inside too.”
“After such a long dark winter, I’m doing all I can to bring the cheeriness of spring into my home right now” says Gemma. ‘’Flowers are always a great addition to your home space, but greenery and spring blooms really do come into their own with so many beautiful ones to choose from at this time of year.’’
Here at Jord Home our favourite florals tend to be in neutral tones, & we especially love these white anemones which look lovely in little bud vases. You can easily pick up them up from vintage markets & they are so useful and it means you can quickly dot them about across a dining table to make an effortless spring tablescape, when bigger arrangements take just a bit more thought. They are fabulous for bringing an instant spring vibe into the home with just a few stems or little spring bulbs.
Features Icelandic Sheepskin in natural and Braided jute rug
Using natural textures in your home is a wonderful way to give an interior a grounded and restorative feeling. Gemma chose our Braided Natural rug for under her dining table “It’s got such a gorgeous tactile quality and yet it’s really hard wearing and can take a few crumbs and the occasional spill.” says Gemma. “And I I love to layer up our rare breed Sheepskins over the benches too. They add instant comfort and have an irresistible tactile quality that encourages you to sit down and linger a while.”
To complete her spring space Gemma uses our soft Evie Cotton Rug for comfort underfoot. “Although spring brings with it some sunshine, the temperatures can still be cooler so I like to layer up with light coloured cotton rugs” Gemma says “ Not only do they add to the airy feel I’m after for spring but it’s really amazing the difference they make to the warmth of your home too. They really help make this space the perfect spot to pause for a moment or two - preferably with a large coffee cup in hand”.
