Exterior Inspiration: Spring Colours to Bring Inside Your Home

After what has been for many a long, and very cold winter, spring seems to be finally upon us in the UK with blue skies and trees beginning to blossom!

So to celebrate the start of what will hopefully be a warm, bright and (hopefully) dry spring season, we have put together our Springtime Inspiration Extravaganza; a handpicked selection of colours, decorating ideas and inspiration photos to help inspire you to bring the outdoors into your home. Whether that be in the form of a plant, a paint colour or even your own accessories, our guide is full of inspiration.

Tokyo has really come into its stride now with a wealth of activities to do in the blossoming city.

Birmingham is the second largest city in the UK, and one typically not associated with blossom… Until now

In Hamburg, Germany, the blossoming trees create a natural archway for people to walk under.

Trends - Pink Ground

The chalk like appearance of Pink Ground is a result of the large dose of yellow tones creating a soft and dusty blush of colour . It’s natural hue works wonderfully with indoor plants and other chalky colours such as Light Blue


The light blue is synonymous of springtime and perfectly brings out the colour in these family mementos.

Right, central: Middleton Pink No.245
Left, bottom: Raddichio No.96
Right, top: Charleston Gray No.243

The soft and delicate spectrum of pinks and reds in this scheme are soft, light and bright, but use small splashes of bold colour such as Raddichio to add depth to the palette. Perfect for a baby’s nursery or alternatively a room rich in natural light.

A little girls bedroom lovingly decorated in shades of pink and blue. In this case the wall against the bottom of the bunk bed is decorated using Vermicelli BP 1553 wallpaper, and offset with bursts of swirls painted in Nancy’s Blushes. The surrounding wall is then finished off in Pink Ground

Teresa's Green

 Subtle shades of pink add warmth to a room, and if you are still unconvinced, accessorize in pink as in this picture. With the walls decorated in Teresa’s Green, the pink chairs are the focus of the space, with the blue green wall creating a complementary backdrop.

This coastal Springtime scheme is rich in blue but can bring an earthy ambiance to a space when coupled with either light and bright accessories or darker natural wood

Hallway tastefully decorated in Light Blue

Aranami B-RT

Hallway decorated in Aranami BP4604. The wave like design in this paper is light and cooling, allowing for bold colour choices in the accessories as is this Babouche sideboard


A bedroom painted in Dix Blue, during the day the sunshine reflects against the green blue colour making it warm and easy to live with.


This bedroom makes use of different shades and patterns of blue. In this image there are Cook’s Blue, St.Giles Blue, Stiffkey Blue and Lulworth Blue painted blocks. These summery, coastal shades of blue are synonymous with the spring and summer albeit in a much more subtle way.

The Chromologist is a colour whisperer. He understands and knows them better than they know themselves, translating their pleas to be used beautifully for humankind. It's unknown from whence he came. Some say the fraction of space between a prism and a spectrum, others say he toiled in the fabled colour mines of Svalbard for years untold, deep underground, speaking only to the reds and blues, cerises and aquas, bronze and golds...
