Hooray! Spring is on its way, it’s less than four months until Christmas (ssh! Did we just utter the “c” word?), and the start of warmer weather and longer days is lifting our spirits like nothing else can. The advent of spring is a fantastic opportunity to refresh your home. Here are some of our favourite new spring décor styles.
Show off your legs
The size of a sofa makes it a key item in the room. Choosing one in a lighter fabric instantly lifts the energy in a room, making it feel fresh and breezy rather than warm and cocoon-y, like a dark velvet or leather sofa will. A style with visible legs floor gives the impression of a larger room as more of the floor space is on show.
Bring the Outdoors In…
Blur the lines between outside and in by using garden furniture in your home. We don’t mean that nasty plastic stuff, but wicker and other natural materials. Pot plants will literally improve the atmosphere in your home, and have the added benefit of being cheap and effective.
…and move your inside living spaces outside
It may not be warm enough to spend all day and evening outdoors, but you can certainly extend your living space outside with the help of a funky outdoor rug.
Be inspired by nature
Adding accents in spring shades, like bright green and yellow, is another fast and effective way to bring the sense of spring into your home.
Update your table
Use wallpaper for a fast, cheap burst of colour
Wallpapering (or painting) the back of shelves is a fast, fun way to inject a zing of colour into a room. We love this look. You can find instructions on how to DIY this decorating idea at www.nefotlak.blogspot.co.uk
Paint your front door
Don’t neglect the exterior of your home. Give your front door a facelift with a welcoming coat of spring colour.
Celebrate spring with a bunch of your favourite fresh spring flowers. Large flowers like peonies and lilac give huge floral bang for your buck, but as long as it makes you smile it doesn’t matter how large your bouquet is.
