10 days in and I’ve finally got around to May’s styling the seasons post. I actually put it off this month as I really wasn’t sure what to do. After having the pretty flowers from Bloom & Wild to style last time and then judging all the beautiful entries for April, I wasn’t sure where to go next!
Then the more I thought about May and my associations I couldn’t help getting a bit nostalgic. For some reason I was taken back to childhood, perhaps because it was always the first month of the year me and my friends would play outside after school and make the most of the first glimpses of Summer. I’d either be picking flowers and foliage from the park (nothing’s changed there), skipping, playing ’40/40 in’ or making leafy dens so I could flex my interior styling muscles in all their 9 year old glory.
I tried to capture some of that playfulness when styling my shelf and foraged some foliage from the park to bring the outdoors in. I spent most of my art college and uni years doing projects voluntarily based on my childhood but I actually hadn’t thought about those years for a while. I guess that’s the beauty of styling the seasons! If you fancy taking note of the changing seasons each month then get involved by styling up a surface of your home and either posting a photo on your blog or social media. Make sure you use #stylingtheseasons and tag the ladies behind this fun project Katy and Charlotte.
