Spring officially begins on March 20th (in the Northern Hemisphere) so it’s time to take a look at some inspiring spring living room ideas. I’ve picked out key furniture pieces including a subtle green three seater sofa, floral armchair and useful wooden tray table. If you can’t afford these bigger investments, you might be able to stretch to some pretty home accessories instead. See the adorable recycled glass vase, bright botanical poster, cosy green wool throw and cute cushion covers. These pieces come together under a spring palette of green, lilac and lavender hues. I’ll also be showing you some paint colours to complete my spring living room ideas.

Bring spring home with this gorgeous three seater Mayor Sofa by & Tradition. It was originally designed back in the 1940s by Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen. The solid oak frame has been fitted with this beautiful spring green upholstery. The neat buttons on the back rest run all the way round onto the arms. You get three slim individual seat cushions which make this seat prim and proper. Layer with spring patterned plump cushions and you get an amazing centerpiece which would certainly suit a Victorian living room setting or a modern apartment. The measurements are 82cm high with the seat height at 44cm, 200cm wide and 62cm in depth – £4299 from Houseology / product code: TR0272.

This Rustic Wooden Tray Table is perfect for resting your mug of herbal tea upon and displaying a vase of spring flower blooms to cheer up your room.

Place this Recycled Tulip Vase on your tray table. You don’t have to stick to just tulips of course, any beautiful flowers will do. The vase is tapered at the top and slightly wider at the bottom which helps the stems splay out so you’ll always achieve the perfect arrangement. This is a simple style vase which is elegant and beautiful – £15.50 from Rose and Grey / product code: not listed.

Another way to bring flowers into the home is with this botanical Plumes Poster. It showcases bulbs, stems and flowering heads in spring colours. This has been made to appear as though it is a vintage educational poster. The picture is printed on paper with a wooden dowel either end. You can hang up using the cord at the top – £30 from Urban Outfitters (UK) / product code: 5527700030130.

An easy way to bring spring into a living room is by introducing patterned cushions. You can find plenty in lush greens, yellows, lilacs and lavender colours. I thought these Japanese Textile Cushion Covers were cute. They are made from Japanese wrapping cloths, called Furoshiki, which you can use to create a tie style cushion. You just wrap the cloth around existing cushions, fold and then tie to introduce a splash of colour. The patterns available are Paint Drips, Summer Fruits and Pentagons which are all 100% cotton. You get a set of instructions with your order. The measurements are 70cm high, 70cm wide and 0.1cm in depth – £14 by Musubi London at notonthehighstreet.com / product code: 460789.

Because the spring weather is always unpredictable, it is wise to have a throw close to hand. I’ve picked out the Green and Grey Woven Wool Throw with a soft and soothing colour palette. The100% pure new wool means it is suitable for Winter and Summer months because it regulates heat rather than insulating. Drape the throw over the back of your sofa or armchair so it is within reach when the sun goes down. The measurements are 150cm by 183cm – £59 from Marquis and Dawe at notonthehighstreet.com / product code: 512318.
