When it comes to colour palettes for spring, there are five hot-to-trot new hues you need to get on board with ASAP. And we're not talking neutrals for the most part, either (been there, done that!).It's time to up the ante and get adventurous with vibrant paint colours as 2015 starts to draw to a close. These hues are set to be on trend for a while, too, so crack out a brush and splash a bit of drama about at home.

Welcome to The Weekend Wrap; the post that contains all the best design news, essential reading and interiors goss from the week gone by.These snippets and gems weren’t juicy enough to be feature in a dedicated post on the blog, so they’ve been given some love here. It’s the best way for you to get the lowdown on what’s going on – and get it all in one place. Enjoy!

As began decorating The Studio recently, it became very apparent that one key element was missing - flowers!I'm a big believer in florals completing a space. They smell good, they look good, they're the icing on the decorating cake if you ask me. But sourcing them every week is a first world problem I didn't want to face.

But at the same time, I believe every home needs balance - and that's what mine has.In it you'll find a slew of budget buys alongside designer pieces I've treasured for years, and I like to think that a blend like this makes my humble abode feel resolved and well-rounded.

The dining room has got to be the most under-utilised area of the home (or am I just eating dinner on the couch way more than I should be?), and I think it has something to do with the lack of attention we give it when it comes to decorating.
