February – A review

February was an exciting month for Styling the Seasons as we joined forces with the lovely folk over at Laura Ashley. We offered twelve of our regular bloggers the chance to pick their choice of products from the new SS15 collection, as well as a roll of wallpaper each. The challenge was to style their chosen surface with their goodies and they were all so ridiculously creative! You can see what they got up to here and here. A big congrats to Tamsyn and Jessica who got voted as the favourites by the readers of the Laura Ashley blog.

Elsewhere, there were just as lovely styled surfaces popping up on numerous blogs and all over Instagram and it was so difficult to choose my favourite. I love the Spring vibe and bulbs that crept into this month’s styling; so full of hope and colour.

These are a few of my favourite shots from Instagram – I love the understated colours and bright backgrounds with flashes of Spring flowers and nature.

And a few of my favourite blog posts from this month. A moodier and more atmospheric collection but the beautiful bulbs and flowers featured in all three of them add life and light.

I love everything about Alexis’s styled table. The jaw-dropping Astier de Villate china, the gorgoeus galsses from Morocco chosen by her daughter and the beautiful use of the flowers. I just want to know when I am going to be invited for dinner! Check out the full post at Something I Made.

Jane’s beautiful styling reminded me of my love of blue and white and I love the effect of the sumptuous blue background, especially in contrast with the daffodils. See the full post at Tea with Ruby.

Emma’s mantelpiece lined with a row of Snowdrops in terracotta pots is perfection! I love the rusticity of this display in contrast with the delicate, sweet Snowdrops. See the full post at Bradshaw & Sons.

I really hope you have found some inspiration from this month’s Styling the Seasons, I literally can not wait to see what March has in store! And can you believe that we have been styling the seasons for six months?

    Gosh! Just realised I never commented to say thank you for featuring my picture! Am spending Sunday morning doing my March styling the seasons post (better late than never!?) and am getting distracted, as normal!
