Fresh Outlook

From serene shades of indigo, to curves and natural materials, Editor Lynn Stewart shares a few favourite spring trends.

This uplifting collection of indigo blue seaweed prints feels light, fresh and the perfect way to brighten a new-season room. Made from monochrome watercolour paintings of pressed seaweed, they work as single prints or can be mixed and matched and still retain a cohesive look.

These gorgeous black and white tapered candle holders are made from 100% marble, which means, as with all natural stone, the pattern on each will differ slightly, making them quite unique. The classic, elegant shape works in most design settings and will last a lifetime. Keep it simple with white candles, or play around with different colours.

With its organic form and natural materials, this gorgeous round side table made from sustainable mango wood and travertine had us sighing at first sight. With a nod to luxe 70s styling, the elegant round stone top beautifully complements the chunky, cylindrical wooden legs. Durable and quite divine.

Soft and subtle blush pink feathers combine with a brass ball chain and boucle trim in this stunning feather light, which creates a beautiful, organic, focal point in rooms. We love both the colour and texture of this gorgeous piece – perfect for bedrooms, hallways and we could easily see her in a dining nook, especially teamed with a leather banquette seat.

These wonderful organic cushions are made from indigo textiles traditionally used for special occasion shawls, treasured and carefully kept. These vintage textiles are hand-spun and dyed using natural dyes by artisans in West Africa. The cloth also ages beautifully and is wonderfully soft.

Just how spring-like is the colour of this upholstered chair? Perfect as a dining chair, we can see it in a reading corner or by a bedroom window, offering a serene space to rest and recharge. Gentle curves and smooth lines add a contemporary edge to a classic design style.

This wood wall panel may only look decorative, but it is actually an elegant way of soundproofing a space. Beautifully designed in the UK using sustainable materials, the slat wood wall panel benefits from Class A sound absorption, suitable for residential and commercial spaces. Personally, it was the look of it that caught our eye.
