It's officially Spring (incase you hadn't noticed) and my gosh didn't it feel like it took it's time to arrive! I feel like now the sun is actually creeping into my home I'm realising it's time for a spring spruce. I want to shake up my living space a little and let the season into my home.
Glade asked me to come up a few ideas to welcome spring and I was more than happy to oblige, this season is one of my favourites! When it comes to refreshing your home a little, bright colours are my default go-to for an uplift. Adding a new lick of paint to your walls would be the obvious suggestion but without going through a major re-haul there are some really simple things you can do to brighten up your space.
Update your pillows and cushions
I'm addicted to cushion covers and pillow sets (no really, if it wasn't for Tom I would be drowning in them) so any excuse to indulge in a little cushion shopping is going to be right up my street. Picking bright block colours of graphic prints and stripes is a great way to make fun refreshing changes to your home.
Same goes for your bedspread and pillows, is there anything nicer than getting into a fresh clean bed? (preferably after a nice bath and some clean pyjamas too). The same feeling applies to a new bedding set, I would recommend a light colour, lots of pastels, floral prints or simple white will make you feel bright and fresh for the day ahead rather than dark wintery colours.
Adding spall additions to small spaces
If you have small space or a small budget doing something simple like adding some new coasters to your coffee table or a patterned tray on your kitchen side can make all the difference. A vase for some freshly picked daffodils on the windowsill can uplift your mood dramatically. Floral scents are such a great way to reminisce, and if your holiday this year is going to be UK based then you could still use the scent of a tropical mist to take you there.
One of the simplest ways of bringing spring into your home and shaking up your living space is to just move things about a bit. Spring is great time to try new arrangements and by simply moving a chair here or there you can really feel like you've re-invented the space.
I always feel that scent plays such a huge part in reviving your home and freshening it up for the season ahead. Floral scents are instant mood boosters for me and make me think of spring picnics, playing in the park with my son or afternoon drinks in our garden. Seeing and smelling that first daffodil of the year always gets me excited for Spring to arrive.
What do you do to welcome Spring into your home and shake up your space?
