Who’s ready to welcome spring? Whether we’re brightening up our homes or injecting new life into our wardrobes, everything about the season spells fresh energy and optimism. As we cast our eyes towards the warmer months, it’s time to open ourselves up to the blooms of possibility.
Why not indulge in captivating florals and pretty pastels? You might want to discover new ways to transform your home, or boost your beauty bag with fresh skincare. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s so much blossoming at QVC. Here are 10 great ways to live like it’s spring.
1. A spring clean
Of course, it all starts with a good old-fashioned spring clean. Aside from the satisfaction we feel when we start to de-clutter, getting the home spick, span and spring-ready will ensure your living space is sparkling for the Easter celebrations ahead. Want to clean the house without single-use plastic? Enter this Bathroom Necessities Sustainable Cleaning Bundle from Homethings.
The collection includes sustainable cleaning essentials that you can refill and re-use time and again. It’ll change up the way you do your household cleaning.
2. Get organised with storage
The secret to home happiness isn’t just getting it spotless, but keeping it neat, tidy and crisp. Storage plays a key part and this set of three velvet-touch trunks from BundleBerry by Amanda Holden can help you keep items dust-free and tidied away post-winter.
As well as freeing up space, these versatile trunks add a stylish touch to your home. You can even use them as side tables stacked on top of each other, or as an ottoman at the foot of your bed.
3. Dress up your living space
We can also lean into the season of renewal by refreshing our homes with bold hues and contemporary furniture. Take, for example, this faux marbletop bar stand from BundleBerry by Amanda Holden.
Perfect for soirees and home gatherings, this modern table is also an ideal surface on which to display other vibrant decor pieces, whether it’s a ginkgo lamp with a velvet shade from Alison Cork, mercury glass candle holders or a faux flower bouquet.
4. Grow as a cook
It must be something about sunshine streaming into the kitchen that suddenly makes you think, hmm… food! Well, this large ceramic casserole dish from Bundleberry by Amanda Holden is a great prompt in itself to try new recipes and bake a little springtime goodness.
With its ‘Hot Pot’ mosaic, this dish is perfect for serving up your Easter feasts, with seasonal ingredients and fresh produce, as the first veggies peek up from the garden. Discover plenty more tools and essentials to broaden your culinary horizons here, too.
5. Awaken your senses
We can officially say “spring is in the air” when the beautiful smells that come with the change of season begin to flood our senses. But what does spring smell like at home? We reckon this True Love candle from Homeworx by Harry Slatkin & Co. nails it.
If winter’s woody, spring is floral and romantic. This four-wick candle, encased in a glass vessel, boasts an invigorating blend of rose, peony, apple, melon, geranium and peach notes. Fill your haven with scent or gift this candle to someone special.
6. Brighten up your outdoors
It may be on the chilly side, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a step or two outdoors, if a little tentatively, and spend more time in the garden. Sprucing up your patio or back yard doesn’t have to be hard work, either.
For bohemian flair (and zero maintenance), check out this three-piece faux plant set from My Home Stories, featuring two faux succulents and a faux aloe vera housed in mosaic planters, or this stylish faux tropical foliage hanging basket from BundleBerry by Amanda Holden.
7. Let your outfits bloom
Turning our attention to our wardrobes, spring is when we awaken our style, weaving in new colour palettes that uplift and inspire joy. We’ve fallen for this midi skirt from Helene Berman. Light, floaty, tiered and printed, this ebullient piece looks great teamed with a plain top to really let your skirt take centre stage.
On evergreen styling, every spring (and summer) repertoire needs lighter outerwear, like this denim-style jacket in cotton from Denim & Co. Whether you’re transforming a maxi dress or layering it over a go-to T-shirt, it’s a style building block you can rely on.

8. Step up your footwear
Out with the snow boots and in with the spring shoes! Warmer weather means ditching your heavier footwear for lighter, (dare we sat it?) ankle-baring styles.
From trainers and slip-ons to sliders and ankle boots, our accessories edit has everything you need to re-jig your collection and complete your outfits.
9. Bag some arm candy
Speaking of adding finishing touches, next-season’s handbags are here and we’re loving this leather cross-body from Ashwood. Zipped compartments, pockets, an adjustable strap – it has everything you need to keep your essentials close for your next picnic.
10. Hit reset on beauty
After a long winter, it’s only right we pamper ourselves out of the cold with a bounty of beauty. Try Daywear Sheer Tint Moisturiser SPF 15 from Estee Lauder for your daily hydration (and sun protection), and refresh your wellbeing routine with sensational supplements from Zooki. Whether you’re giving yourself some love with self-care saviours or building a new skincare routine, our beauty destination has the answers.
We hope you have the loveliest of seasons, and be sure to check our website regularly for updates. As the poet Algernon Charles Swinburne put it, “Blossom by blossom, the spring begins.”
