3 easy and quick ways to bring Spring into your home.
Spring has well and truly sprung. The days are longer, the mornings are brighter and it’s the perfect time of year to breathe some fresh air into your home.
After a long, exhausting day, all you want to do is get back home and curl up. It’s time to shake off the remnants of winter and bring some of that spring freshness into our homes. To keep your mood feeling bright and relaxed, a spring in your step, a little atmospheric change won’t hurt.
While it’s not practical or cost-effective to completely change your décor with every season, it is definitely possible to add some simple touches to mirror the changes in the weather. Think of changing cushions to pretty pastels, throws to a lighter shade and material, and bring in some natural elements to lift the room.
With a few clever touches, your home will feel renewed and refreshed for the spring and summer months. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Bright and Breezy Living Rooms
Changing living room accessories is an easy way to breathe new life into your home. Even just replacing cushions for a lighter or brighter shade will give the room an instant facelift. If you want to go all out, swap the dark curtains for sheers or some light blinds that allow more daylight to come in.
Add some storage baskets to hide all those odds and ends – having a decluttered living room will instantly lift your spirit.
Breathe new life into your Bedroom
With spring in full swing, you might want to start switching those heavy throws for lighter options, in both colour and texture. Why not go the extra mile and treat yourself to a fresh new set of bedlinen at the same time? Linen bedlinen is perfect for the transition from Spring to Summer, due to its lightweight versatility.

Add some floral flare for Spring
Springtime is all about blooming flowers, lush foliage and green grass. Bring the outdoors in this spring with some fresh additions to your houseplants and lively pop of green. Fill all your vases, there is no such thing as ‘too much’ when it comes to floral and greenery in spring.
Early blooming bulbs like daffodils, crocus and hyacinth add lots of colour (and scents), and they can pop out as early as February. Shortly after comes the waves of flashy tulips and irises that look beautiful in small bunches around the house.
