We may still be waiting for the warmer weather; however it is now officially Spring! Being the season of renewal and rejuvenation, spring is the perfect time to spruce up your home and add a breath of fresh air. Here are a few tips to help you wave winter goodbye...
Brighten up your home – We tend to gravitate towards moody, dark colours during winter and heavily textured materials to keep us warm. However, spring is the perfect time to rethink your colour scheme and literally lighten up your home. Channel the colours of spring by adding a new cushion or two, investing in fresh linen or updating your tableware. Think blossom pinks, pastel blues and mint greens that mimic the outside hues of spring.
Rework your style – as they say, a change is as good as a holiday and you can’t help but feel refreshed and accomplished after re-arranging a room. Playing around with the orientation of your furniture is an obvious change; however don’t underestimate the impact of simply reorganising your display items or changing around your pieces of wall art.
Get it done – despite our best intentions, there are always those odd jobs around the home that we never quiet have time to attend to - or constantly put off! Whether it is that front fence that needs a new coat of paint, that kitchen cupboard hinge that needs adjusting or that artwork you were meant to hang months ago, spring provides the perfect opportunity to knuckle down complete these unfinished projects.
Spring clean - you can’t undervalue the power of a gold old fashioned clean to have your home looking its best again. Cleaning and de-cluttering your home can seem overwhelming; therefore it’s best to tackle one room at a time. Be sure to pay extra attention to areas that are skimmed over during the cooler months especially your windows, both inside and out. Clear, streak free panes make such a difference, allowing extra light and warmth into each room and bringing that gorgeous spring sun in.
All that’s left is to add a bunch of your favourite spring blooms...
