FROM COSY TO CRISP - spring refresh
Spring has sprung! With warmer weather and a new fresh energy in the air, it is now a great time to give your home a spring refresh.
There are a few ways how to approach this and it depends on what would you like to achieve, but overall you don’t need to redecorate every room with change of season. It doesn’t need much to re-energise the space. Remember – small changes CAN make a BIG difference. Never underestimate the change that only a few accessories, colour or re-designing your space can make. Not only for your home but also how you feel in it.
Whatever your plan is and whatever the changes you want to make, the first thing you need to do is declutter and organise the space. Hibernating phase is over and its time to put away items that have accumulated during the winter and we don’t need. Give the space a fresh start. This doesn’t cost anything and the result that you get is so worth the time and effort. Not just that your room will get an instant lift, you will also feel great!
Once you have done this, look around the house and think about how you feel in each space. What would you like to change? Are there items or furniture, decor you would like to replace? Does the room feel dark and uninviting? Do you need to give the room a spring lift? Do you need fresh ideas to bring life to it? Is there a piece of furniture that looks tired? Does the space have a good indoor outdoor flow or do you need to re-arrange the furniture?
Whatever the changes make sure they reflect your interior style, so your home looks and feels cohesive and has a good flow.
Here are a few tips how to bring your space to life with fresh ideas:
Add a touch of colour. It can be as easy as changing your scatter cushions or adding new ones. There is such a good selection of ready made cushions available and tropical prints are still big this season. It’s all about bringing the outdoor in. Think about bright and colourful designs as well as lighter textures to reflect the lightness of spring. If you like more subtle patterns and colours, play with textures to add interest. and introduce light and natural fibres for your soft furnishings.
Re-arrange your accessories, mix them up and add a few new ones. Add greenery and new statement pieces to the your styling vignettes.
Cushions and accessories are inexpensive way to transform your room and it will give you an instant refresh.
Bring the outdoor in and refresh your home with fresh plants and greenery. This is an easy way to visually connect your interiors to the outdoor space.
Plants in pot stands are great to fill those empty corners and to add height where layering a room.
Re-arrange your furniture to work with the indoor outdoor flow. It will also give a completely new feel to a room. Your fireplace may not be the main focal point in this time of the year. If you have a view to a beautiful garden, make sure you arrange your furniture around that.
If it’s time to change your lounge or dining chairs then spring is a great time to liven up your living area with new furniture or a new rug.
Don’t forget about your indoor – outdoor flow.
