Even though spring is far away for now, especially in Scandinavia, I think after Christmas holidays are over, we all long for warmer weather and the first signs of green. A good tip for those that cannot wait is to start introducing more greens in the house, add textiles that remind of Spring in light colors, new cushion covers or even a light colored carpet. In collaboration with Ellos Home I styled my living room with some fabrics and some greens to serve as an example for anyone that wants to bring some Spring feelings in their house, do read on for more details and tips!
One of the first things I did was to get some extra linen pillowcases. My sofa is getting really old now and I don't like how it looks, but with new pillowcases and a throw or two it looks as good as new! I decided to also add a carpet underneath so it can provide with some definition of the area. I really like how it softens the dark color of the floorboards, but also it makes for a great place to sit on since it is so soft and cozy.
When it comes to greens, my tip would be to choose plants that look great on the floor. My Monstera Deliciosa is big enough now to stand on its own but I decided to put some magazines under to give it a little bit more visibility. A simple Pilea Peperomioides is all I need for my table (which is filled with magazines and books), but if I had the luxury of fresh flowers I think a vase would also look quite nice and fit perfectly.
