‘With the popularity of open plan living, kitchen extensions and bi-fold doors the outdoors has never been more indoors at home,’ says Jo Griffiths of Joyful Living here at Drove Orchards.
‘The joy of nature inside the home is particularly prominent in spring; with new growth and cuttings a plenty, we can fill our homes with beautiful texture.
‘This month at the store, we are focusing on faux plants that are so realistic they fool even the keenest gardener. The Boston fern, a difficult plant to nurture is my absolute favourite, and never needs watering, just perfect for instant colour.
‘Glass always features heavily at the store and this month is no exception. The incredible green of our mouth blown glass carafe and glasses has us all in a tizz, so fresh and spring-like, we have ordered extra for use at home. Great for wine, water, flowers and the glasses will double up as candle votives and dessert bowls.
‘This wooden lamp is a store favourite, a beautifully turned base with a rough linen shade, it gives the most romantic ambience and can easily be used in kitchens and sitting rooms amongst all colour schemes.
‘We are continuing to feature our East Anglian sheepskins all over the home. Available in three sizes they make a luxurious, affordable statement. Perfect for bedrooms and bathrooms where hard floors can feel a little cold even with early spring sunshine.’
