Confession: I’m hooked on all things blue and white, especially if there’s ombre detailing involved. I’m convinced it’s my cravings for warmer days manifesting themselves in a riot of textiles, tabletop and decorative accessories that spell out Summer. Whatever the reason, it’s a resulted in an overhaul of my bedroom scheme to create an indigo-soaked space that feels akin to an exotic beach-side location.

I’ve already purchased a beautiful ombre cushion by Bluebellgray and have been pulling more ideas together on my Spring Brights For The Home Pinterest board, which is packed with my favourites from Amara. If you follow Amara on Pinterest, create your own board of favourites and then submit it the relevant competition page (UK, USA or Australia) before midnight GMT on 28th February, you could be in with the chance to win a £1000 (or equivalent currency) Amara voucher.

So tell me, do you love blue and white home accessories as much as me, or do you have a different crush when it comes to spring homewares?
