Spring Update – simple ways to rejuvenate your interiors.

Spring is in the air, the daff’s are in full bloom and stuffing our faces full of chocolate eggs is just around the corner. If you’re looking to add a bit of Spring freshness to your interior decor, here’s a round up of quick ways to bring the outside in and liven up your interiors.

  1. Botanical prints.

Adding a few botanical prints is a good way to add a fresh look, and the botanical trend is still very current so there are lots of lovely print out there, such as these lovely ones from Etsy.

2. Soft Furnishings.

One of my favourite things is to climb into a freshly made bed with brand new bedcovers and this is a very simple way to get ready for spring. This bedding from White Company is so elegant and has added interest with the Pom Poms which I am seeing everywhere in interiors right now and love the quirky aspect they add.

Also check out @cushionsatthemanor on Instagram as they do some of the loveliest (and affordable) Pom Pom cushions I’ve seen!

3. Fresh Flowers.

Adding fresh flowers in beautiful vase’s all around the house is another relatively cheap and quick way to add colour and life into our interiors. Tulips and Daffodils are classic spring flowers and are so bright and cheerful, especially against a white or grey colour scheme.

4. Storage.

No spring clean is gonna happen until you have your storage sorted. I’m of the mindset that if you can’t see it, it’s not there. I have drawers all around the house shoved full of shit! But as long as it’s hidden and things look pretty, I’m good!

These belly baskets are great for filling with toys or general bits and bobs, and the dipped white effect gives a cool, contemporary edge.

5. Think about your layout.

Ever since I was a child I would move my bedroom furniture around every few months, and I still, to the annoyance of my family, do it now. Finn will get in from school and notice that a new wall has been painted grey, a sofa has moved or a rug has vanished, only to find it pop up in a different room. A room re-fresh instantly gives a new feeling to your interiors and it is totally free to do. Quite often you will find this new layout works better for your lifestyle and the way you use the room. Every few months is a bit extreme I admit, but once in a while, it can work wonders. Grab a pen and paper, draw a rough sketch of the room and play about with new ideas of how the room could work differently and go for it.
