The Home Accessory Edit: 8 Stylish Spring Essentials
Senior editor Sally Armstrong shares her top decor picks for spring.
While some might view spring shopping through the lens of their wardrobe, I see it as the perfect opportunity to refresh my home. I find it so indulgent to pack away my heavy blankets and salt-stained floor mats in favor of bright and airy finds that hold the promise of warmer weather. Here are eight products that I’m coveting right now, each one with the unique ability to bring a breath of fresh air into your home — even if it’s too chilly outside to open your windows just yet.
Your entryway deserves some extra attention come spring, and this modern take on a welcome mat will deliver just that. Made from abaca — a natural plant fiber that’s odor and moisture resistant — it offers a natural hit of color that depicts the birds-eye view of a backyard swimming pool.
Marble paper inspired the design on this linen cushion, but the color and swirling pattern reminds me of water running through a stream – you can almost hear the trickle of water swooshing and birds chirping.
Spring is all about flowers. The form of this lovely vase — made of fine Portuguese ceramic — is the perfect vessel in which to display them.
Combat spring showers in style with this sleek umbrella holder from West Elm. Its clean, modern lines make it the perfect spring accessory for your entryway.
There’s nothing like a set of crisp, new sheets to refresh your bedroom for spring. I love a floral pattern for this time of year, and this hand-painted set in rich blue hits all the right notes.

Nothing gets me more excited about spending time outdoors than the thought of magical string lights. These globe bulbs come with a handy hook so they can easily be attached to the underside of an umbrella (or lots of other places for that matter). It’s such a pretty way to lighten up any outdoor area.
Whether you’re dining indoors or al fresco, the irregular blue and white patterns on these decoupaged tea light holders will bring a fresh, casual feel to your table.
