With Spring just around the corner, it’s time to say goodbye to that pesky cold weather and hello to beautiful sunny days. Spring can be a great time to liven up your home with some bright colours and playful decorations. We’ve compiled some cost-effective ideas to help you design stunning décor for Spring…
Cushions & Throws
The warmer seasons make us feel more vibrant. Put away your dark or heavy décors like velvet cushions and thick woollen throws and replace them with lighter fabrics. Bright cotton cushions and throws are perfect to give your living area or bedroom that extra POP of colour!
If you don’t want to discard your darker coloured décor, try incorporating subtle elements of colour. Instead of multiple bright cushions or throws, just add one or two to really make them stand out.
Spring is the perfect time to Feng Shui your living areas to give your home a new feel. Look at your current room layout and design something that incorporates all the new décor features you’ll be using for the warmer seasons. This is a great way to give your home a fresh look and make it feel brand new again.
Putting some vibrant artwork up can add a fantastic touch to your home. Try incorporating some pictures of flowers, beautiful scenery or even photos of your family vacations around. By placing artwork around you’re adding another layer of personality to your home.
No matter the season, plants are always a fantastic addition to the home. It’s psychologically proven that having plants in your home can provide health benefits including reduced stress and improved concentration. Without greenery it can feel unwelcoming, adding a potted plant in some areas of the home gives it more of a natural feel.
If you think real plants are hard to maintain, you can try buying either low maintenance or fake plants. You’d be amazed how realistic some fake plants can look!
Giving your garden arrangements a revamp with flowers is the perfect way to make your exterior more appealing. Choose flowers that are in season and will complement the style and colour scheme of your home. If gardening isn’t your forte, look for plants that are low maintenance and thrive in any weather. Talk to your local nursery about possible ideas and take a picture of the outdoor area you’re looking to style. They will be able to help you find a range of beautiful flowers to suit.
