Sweet dreams are made of these
For Lucy, nothing refreshes a bedroom like new bedding. Her pick for this season is Australian brand Sheridan’s Abbotson range in 100 per cent Belgian flax linen. Soft springtime colours – powder blue, mint green and buttery yellow – are perfectly primed for any bedroom sanctuary.
As evenings get warmer in spring, Lucy looks to another Australian design: MiniJumbuk’s Cool Wool Cotton Quilt. A lightweight blend of wool and cotton is not only ideal for balmy nights but it also works to pull moisture away from the body, keeping you cool and dry
Essentials for entertaining
Turn kitchen chaos to calm with Joseph Joseph. Warmer weather means plenty of long lunches, dinner parties and everything in between. Prep your kitchen for a season of hosting with organisers that not only look sleek but help to keep your space neat and tidy.
Plus, this spring, Lucy is making her organisational dreams a reality with OXO’s Pop 2.0 containers. They’re airtight, stackable and completely dishwasher safe, making them an essential space-saving pantry component and perfect for keeping dry foods fresh. And the variety of sizes means you can find the right fit for any food.
A clever clean
Give spring-cleaning new meaning with Dyson’s most innovative technology yet. Their v15 Detect vacuum is complete with a laser to detect and reveal microscopic dust particles and a clever LCD screen for proof of what’s being sucked up. A quick and thorough clean has never been easier – or more satisfying! Or, for something that does all the work for you, Lucy looks to Roborock’s robotic vacuum. Simply switch on and watch the magic happen.
And prep your home for allergy season with Breville’s air-purifying technology. The Smart Air Plus purifier detects and removes impurities like bacteria, smoke and even viruses, all on its own. A year-round essential in Lucy’s space. And as the weather warms up, look to Dyson’s Cool Purifying Tower Fan. An inbuilt fan cools you down while the purifying system targets airborne pollutants.
Declutter in style
Lucy’s shortcut to a stress-free laundry starts with Joseph Joseph’s compartmentalised baskets. Built-in separators mean you can save time by pre-sorting your clothing. And, in a pared-back, neutral palette, these sleek, full-sized baskets look chic in every bedroom.
Another laundry essential that Lucy can’t go past is a Philips handheld steamer. Compact and easy to store, this is a quick and effective tool to freshen up any outfit. Perfect for prepping special occasion outfits for entertaining.
