Winter is finally over. Longer days are creeping in and the sun is waking from its slumber: the most uplifting season is upon us. Spring is a time for optimism and fresh thinking – by changing up your décor to reflect this fantastic time of year, you can create a home that’s in tune with the scenes outside.
Here are a few tips on how to bring new life to your décor this month with a bit of spring cleaning.
Get playful with patterns
Spring gives you free reign to experiment with off-beat ideas and decorations. So don’t be afraid to get a little playful with shapes and designs. To re-energise your rooms with that bouncy spring buoyancy, take a little inspiration from the warmer weather outdoors.
Revive your bedroom with flowery bedsheets, pop some patterned pillows on your sofas, and cover your chairs with floral throws. And when it comes to your flooring, cast away the winter covers and put down some yellow or green rugs to add a splash of colour to your environment.
Bring nature indoors
As flowers begin to blossom and the garden gets a little greener, it’s time to start thinking about bringing the al fresco elements indoors. By decorating your home with bright green house plants, you can improve the air circulation, create a fresher climate, and add a vital touch of colour to echo the improved mood of the weather on the other side of your walls.
Thinking of upgrading your furniture and storage solutions? Embrace rusticity in your home. Beech or pine-effect wardrobes and dressers will brighten up your bedroom in the best possible way. Their subtle, naturalist shades offer an ideal storage solution for spring time.
Make it smell like spring
You can infuse your rooms with that irresistible spring scent by sprinkling seasonally-themed aromatic items here and there – including honey wax candles, lemony air fresheners, and peppermint oil diffusers.
Make your very own bowl of potpourri for the living room table, and grab some lavender linen spray to keep your fabrics smelling fresh all season long. Going on a walk? Bring a handful of wild flowers back to place in mini vases around your home.
Add a little art
We love fresh flowers, but you don’t need a weekly trip to the florist to keep your interior awash with colours. Attaching bright green canvases and paintings of woodlands, trees and shrubbery to your walls can help to illuminate a room and give your home a stirring spring vibe.
Framed botanicals can also work wonders, and will complement any surrounding plant life perfectly. Terrariums are very much in vogue at the moment, the ideal centrepiece for a dining or dressing table!
