Florals, in spring… I know, I know, “groundbreaking” but hear me out! Prints of all things petal get me in the mood for spring and wake me from my winter daze. Ain’t nothing makes me feel brighter or happier than a pretty posy this time of year.

1 Bouquet Artwork, $120, Urban Road

Brighten up your walls with this gorgeous wall posy. Spring has sprung, people! It’s the perfect way to enjoy flowers if you suffer from hayfever, too! The work is printed on a cotton canvas, then stretched onto a 38mm wooden frame, ready for hanging.

2 Large Polka Vase, $131, Annabel James

A bright and bubbly way to display all those flowers that are sure to come rolling in now that spring has sprung.

3 Chunky Floral Tealight Holder, $9.95, Dusk

Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with candles. These little votives adorned with flower patterns just scream Spring, don’t you think?

4 Floral Finds iPhone6 case, $40, The Dairy

Phone cases are still a hot item and what better way to make your most-used accessory sing than with a bright and delightful floral case? I’m obsessed with all things at The Dairy, so if this one doesn’t strike your fancy, they have plenty more.

5 Friendship Cake Plate $119.95, Zanui

When Miranda Kerr signed on to design for Royal Albert we were all like, “What?” But since seeing her delicate, vibrant collaborations, we’re on board.

6 All The Things Notebook, $26, Ashley Brooke Designs

Keep track of all the things in your life with this bright and happy notebook. DO ALL THE THINGS!

7 Floral Wingback Chair, $2,450, Happiness Place

Oh my god. This chair. I die. I need it in my life now. And if The Happiness Place sells out of the chair before I get there, I SUPPOSE I’ll be content with one of their petal covered throw pillows.

8 Florence Broadhurst by Uchi Black Japanese Floral Traveller Toiletry Bag, $94.90, Hard To Find 

I’ve long been a fan of Florence Broadhurst’s signature floral designs when they were in wallpaper form. Now they come in luggage form – from suitcases to this gorgeously functional toiletries bag – so I can carry her wares wherever I go.

9 Long Island Floral Dress, $289, Review

With a fitted shift style and sweetheart neckline, this is one retro wonder that I adore. Spring racing is just around the corner so this is a great bit of fashion inspo.

10 Necklace, $52.95, Batucada

Created from 100 per cent recyclable, eco-friendly materials, we just adore Batucada’s tattoo-like jewellery designs.
