For many, Spring is a sign of renewal and new life – and our homes are no different. There is something quite exciting about energising and refreshing the look and feel of your home, letting in the airy feeling of Spring after a somewhat bleak and cold winter.
Here are some ways you can spruce up your home for Spring.
Paint a Focal Wall
Why not try painting your focal wall (the one that is seen the most) in a sunnier, brighter or even just a lighter shade of your current wall colour. This will add elements of lightness to your room without drastically changing the whole decor scheme.
You can always revert back to the slightly darker colours in the autumn, but what about trying a subtle petal pink or sky blue in the meantime? Painting a singular focal wall is a very inexpensive way of bringing a bit of Spring into your home.
Add in some white to your present colour scheme with add some brightness and some cool tones, whilst also adding in the freshness that only white can. If your room colours lean more towards the warmer side, such as browns, yellows, or reds, then you would be wise to choose creamier whites such as ivory.
However, if you have cooler colours in your rooms such as greens or blues, you can choose to go with brighter, cleaner whites for a crisp, summery effect.
Choose some pretty coloured glassware and display them where they can catch the sunlight. You don’t just have to have them as functional pieces used for – pencil holders, candy dishes, vases or even as traditional glasses. They can bring an element of additional colour to your home, the subtle sparkles can add some well-needed sunlight to any room.
Having dirty windows can be a direct cause for less light being able to get into your home; it can make the room in question look dull and it can bring in a gloomy vibe.
Clean windows on the other hand means that there is even more sparkling glass for the sunlight to hit which can help to make the room feel much larger and brighter.
Bring in the Florals
Add in some floral patterns and prints to your room – utilize the primary colours that are already in your room. Select some decorative pillows, seat cushions or a tablecloth for your dinner table.
Why not bring in the real deal too? Put up some flowers and use them indoors as houseplants. This is an inexpensive, easy to maintain way of bringing in some natural florals without the cost of replacing them with fresh cut flowers every week. You could even coordinate the colours of the flowers with the focal tones in the specific room.
Make an Entrance
Don’t neglect your entryway area when you’re thinking of giving your home a well-needed Spring glow. Remember, your entrance gives visitors the first impression of your home. Add in a beautiful pot with flowers on the porch or at the foot of the steps. You can also simply give your entrance a deep clean and ensure that the door and doormat are free of all the mud and salt collected over the winter months.
