Our edit of the best interior design pieces in ice cream pastels to hit the highstreet this spring.
The arrival of spring sees us excited to overthrow our winter wardrobes with floral designs and pastel accessories, and we’re equally keen to give our homes a seasonal refresh, too.
Whether you have a lot of space to work with, or only a little, it’s tempting to clear away the cosy throws and hygge candles in favour of bright and light pieces for your place as soon as May peeks its head around the corner.
Luckily for you, we’ve scoured the high-street for spring’s most aesthetically pleasing interior design trends, and created an edit that’ll have you up to date in no time.
From artwork by independent designers to lilac-edged bedding, everything on this list is perfectly pastel. With a new cushion here, and an ornament there, your flat will soon be ready for the warmer weather.
Abstract peaches print
Lucy Ellis is a UK-based, emerging designer whose range of playful, colourful prints will bring joy to your walls.
Nature – particularly fruit – features heavily in her work, and we particularly like her take on the humble pear.
Velvet Louise curtain
Follow in Dolly Alderton’s footsteps and add a pair of pink curtains to your bedroom and give it an instant dose of cheeriness.
Fill this tiny vessel with a sprig of wild flowers and put in the a small corner of any room that needs brightening.
Whether it’s on the shelf of a bookcase, a window ledge or positioned next to a larger vase, this little guy adds a certain something.
Be Kind print
This print by Ramsgate-based artist Margo in Margate is exclusive to Rose & Grey, so you won’t find it anywhere else online. Or, (hopefully) on any of your friend’s walls, either.
Although it has a soothing, pastel pink background, this image is also full of life thanks to the clashing red and yellow tones.
Daisies tufted bath mat
Jump out of the shower feeling fresh as a daisy and straight onto this cute bath mat.
Ceramic egg cup
How do you like your eggs in the morning? We like ours in a pink, pastel egg cup like this one from Matilda Goad.
To stop you “chasing a wobbly little egg cup” around the plate, as Goad herself confesses she’s done many times before, this cup and plate are attached to keep everything sturdy. Makes sense, huh?
If traditional china isn’t your thing, give this fun twist on a teapot a try.
Non Arte print
The Poster Club works with artists, photographers, designers and other creatives to serve up a variation of gorgeous art for your walls.
We particularly love this design, though, which comes in two sizes incase you want to make a big impact.
Scalloped bed linen
We’re huge fans of scallop details in homewares, so we couldn’t resist this pretty bedding.
Bela decorative figure
This quirky ornament is the perfect final flourish for a nearly-done living room.
Pop her on top of a shelf or side table for a bit of character.
Glass candle holder
Anna + Nina’s selection of candle sticks are nothing short of dreamy, but we particularly like this sky-blue number.
Use a candle in a darker shade of blue to add depth for a tonal look.
