Happy Easter everyone! We hope everyone is having a glorious weekend, and looking forward to that extra day off tomorrow. Whether you’ve got family coming around for a long, lazy lunch, or simply want to make an extra effort on the Bank Holiday, we’ve gathered a trio of lovely ways to add that spring-like feel to your home:

Create a gorgeously rustic feel with flowers

An instant way to inject some springtime brightness to your oak-framed home? Flowers! This time of year is all about embracing blooms, and so vases and jugs filled with beautiful blossoms will provide colour and life. Not only that, but they look stunning against the rustic charm of an English oak frame.

Wooden eggs make great decorations

It’s not all about chocolate when it comes to Easter eggs – the wooden variety make super decorations as well. Whether you cluster them in a whicker basket and pop them in your oak-framed garden room, or hang them from a cluster of branches to make an ‘Easter Tree’ in your lounge, then they create a fun yet elegant feel to any space. You could even dangle them from your pergola, so that guests entering your home proceed through an easter-themed walkway!

If there are children to occupy, think about buying plain wooden eggs and letting the little ones get painting, or you can buy them already designed, such as these from notonthehighstreet.com.

Nothing says spring like a bit of pretty pastel or vibrant green. And while you might not be able to completely decorate, there are plenty of ways to inject freshness into your interiors. Potted palms, hanging plants and winding ivy all bring a sense of the outside inside, while soft furnishings like cushions and throws add soft texture and a soothing colour palette.

Also remember that with English Oak Buildings, whether you’re planning a self-build, extension, office or garden room, we can design it to your own specification so that light floods into the living area. Imagine what your future Easters could look like!
