BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO YOUR HOME WITH SIMPLE SPRING UPDATES
Spring is in the air and now is the time to start getting your home ready for the new season. In partnership with spring cleaning, decoratingand stylingfor spring is vital. Light, bright colours, lightweight natural materials and fun, floral patterns are all the rage this season.
SPRING INTO SPRING STYLING
The easiest way to start to ensure that each space in your home receives a fair share of attention, is to start at the beginning and start with your entrance and entryway. Your entryway serves as the welcome into your home where first impressions are made. Start with a bunch of fresh, bright blooms to set the atmosphere and brighten up the space.
If your entryway is large enough to accommodate a hallway table, we highly recommend that you procure one that matches or complements your homes style. Styling your entryway table with vases, ornaments and trays is the next step to creating a completed look.
Once you have finished in the entryway, the dining and living room are next up on your list to decorate and style. When it comes to refreshing a room for a new season, you do not need to do any major remodelling or revamping, simply swapping out scatter cushions, throws and baskets. Incorporate different textures such as rattan, linen and polyester to bring in a more lightweight feeling.
ADD SPRING COLOURS TO THE SPACE
Spring is the perfect season to start incorporating brighter colours back into your home, whether it is painting a feature wall, putting up bold artworks or swapping out scatters, throws and rugs. You can choose to go big and incorporate some bigger furniture items in bright colours such as occasional chairs and ottomans, or stick to smaller, more cost-effective pieces such as blankets, pillows, fake plants and baskets. When you think of Spring, you may think of softer colours in a more pastel colour palette, and while that is still current, it is up to you what tones you choose to use. However, there is no need to stick with muted tones.
LESS IS ALWAYS MORE
The age-old debate of “is less always more” is certainly relevant when it comes to Spring inspired styling. When adding new accessories to spruce up your home for the new season, we advise you to start with fewer items and build you way up to prevent the space feeling overcrowded and cluttered. Add a few scatter cushions that feature your chosen seasonal colour palette to brighten up your living room or bedroom.
An accent wall is a wall within your interior space that is different from the other walls in the room. Any room in your house can be transformed into an accent room. Usually, these walls are used for aesthetics alone or sometimes to highlight or frame some decorative elements such as a painting.
The way we decorate can make a major difference in creating a warm comfortable space. Most homes have leather couches. These couches are sophisticated and luxurious and make sense to be a part of any home. However, leather couches can prove to be extremely cold to use during the winter. So, we have looked at some simple ways to warm up your couches this winter.
Shelves can store almost anything, just as long as it's not heavier or bigger than the shelf itself. This allows you to bring in items from anywhere to pull the look of your shelf together. We’ve looked at some interesting ways to style your shelf, in a way that showcases balance and appeal in your shelf decorating techniques.
