Take Stock Of Your Indoors
Now is a good time to think about any decorative changes you would like to make indoors. In addition to a Spring clean, do any rooms need a more radical overhaul? Sometimes, simply moving furniture around provides a space with a new lease of life but it may be that you need to give some attention to your windows and soft furnishings too?
A new blind, pair of curtains or cushions often provides that fresh uplift we are all looking for at this time of year. A well-chosen curtain or blind will frame your view of the great outdoors as nature bursts into Spring.
Bring The Outdoors In
What we love most about the arrival of Spring is seeing our favourite plants bloom again. Flowers like tulips and daffodils will add colour and life to your spaces and all for a relatively cheap price. The important rule here is to create a consistent colour scheme, so pick a few tones that belong to the same colour family and use them throughout the whole home.
But if like us, you’re decidedly not green-fingered, you could incorporate a range of faux plants that you can place anywhere for an instant hit of spring. Combine these with occasional bunches of cut flowers from your local florist for a mix of textures, colours and scents.
Seasonal Bedding & Cushions
Looking for an easy and low cost way to decorate for spring? Changing your bedding to a bright floral design for the Spring months can really help to change your full room and make it feel more uplifting.
Love your current bedding? Try adding some throw cushions to your bed through the day, not only will it add colour, character and texture, but it will also make a bed look stylish, cosy and inviting. Looking for inspiration? We have a wide range of bespoke cushions available on our website! Take a look here.
As the days start to get warmer and the evenings lighten we need to replicate this in our homes. After Winter, we are often left with a lot of heavy and dark fabrics that keep us warm over the colder months. Well it is time to ditch the boucle and opt for a lighter option.
Celebrate the start of Spring with a splash of colour. We are obsessed with our new range of floral prints, just take a look at the gorgeous pinks, blue and green hues here.
Change Your Home Scents
With Spring fast approaching, it is the perfect time to pack away those scents that remind us of the colder months - and instead embrace the power of a new aroma around the home. Think eucalyptus, lavender, blossom, as well as fresh fruit fragrances like lemon, vanilla or strawberry.
Spring is the season where we watch nature come to life all around us. One of the best ways to embrace the new beginnings of Spring is to encourage nature to be a part of your life. Why not set up a bird house or feeder in your garden? Even if you don’t have an outside space, you can get window feeders that brave birds will happily visit.
Embrace the fresh feel of this exciting season with these ideas for your home and give your Spring home decor a new lease of life.
