a week of spring: fresh and bright homewares

To celebrate the official start of British summertime (although not that sacred lost hour of sleep!), this week on The Owl and the Accordion is going to be a complete Spring-fest; I’ve lined up some great homewares, a peek behind the scenes at a great British furniture maker, some crafty tutorials, ideas for getting out and about with the littluns and a fabulously fresh frugal Friday at the end of the week. Phew!

I’m kicking things off today with a roundup of the lightest and brightest homewares around at the moment; think geometric prints, quirky ceramics and cheery flashes of colour – and the best news is that nothing is over £35. Bargain!
