Spring is definitely in the air. Bring it into your home with some bright and colourful accessories, say our home writers Hayley Philpot and Jennifer Read.
Emma Bridgewater definitely has a hint of Spring with her hen mugs, tea towels, or a set of cute egg cups and hand-sponged Blue Hen has always been one of Emma’s best loved patterns, so this Spring she has put her cobalt blue chicken at the heart of her collection. It works beautifully with the original Blue Hen and with all the Blue Skies patterns.
