The sun finally made an appearance this week and with it a welcome rise in temperatures. With the sight of snowdrops and daffodils in verges and gardens and the clocks going forward next weekend it was possible to believe that Spring is just around the corner.

It might be a little early to turn off the heating but we can certainly think about emerging from hibernation and brightening our homes. There’s nothing like a bit a yellow to lift the spirits so here are a few suggestions as to how to use it in your home.

A knitted throw is always an easy and inexpensive way of introducing colour and texture to a scheme. it will also keep you warm if the temperatures drop. This throw from Dunelm has a pom pom trim and also comes with the option of a matching cushion. Perfect for the bedroom or your sofaBed dressed with yellow knitted throw and cushion with pom pom trim.

This quirky foxglove design fabric in quince colourway is from Missprint. It would make great curtains or cushion covers. For a kitchen, it would look striking as a blind or table runner. The same design also comes as a wallpaper.
