Spring has sprung, and about time too! With the weather warming up and wildflowers blossoming, how do you bring a little bit of spring into your home without breaking the bank to redecorate, or breaking the terms of your Bunbury rental agreement? It's all about changing accessories with the season.
Updating your accessories to reflect the season is much quicker than redecorating and isn't a long-term commitment. If you're likely to change your mind, want to update regularly or aren't allowed to make many interior decisions under your landlords terms, focus on these small but crucial features of your space.
When it comes to seasonal changes, colours and prints are key. While in the winter you'll be craving darker colours and heavier fabrics, the spring time is about light colours we associate with this time of year, such as pastel shades and flowery prints.
Here are some ideas you can use to bring spring into your home without touching a paint brush.
Seasonal flowers – Just like adding a touch of holly at Christmas, bringing some spring flowers into your home can liven up a room. Add them to the dining table, or spruce up window sills. Change your plants across different rooms to match the colour scheme and style. Bigger plants can be used in large, open plan rooms, while a small bloom can add some spring to a small bedside table.
Nature – As well as flowers, bring a little more nature into your home with wooden accessories or beach pebbles. Spring is when we head outside and take in the new season, so bring it into your home to evoke memories of walks through the forest and days spent by the sea.
Cushions and throws – Easy to change and great for adding colour to any kind of interior, cushions and throws can be updated to spring time colours and lighter textures. It's time to get rid of heavy wool and chunky knits that kept you cosy through winter. Instead, bring in some light weight alternatives in pretty pastel shades to brighten up the room.
De-clutter – It's out with the old and in with the new for spring. Make the room feel more spacious and airy by removing items you don't need anymore. Clear out shelving units and make your flowers and spring-coloured accessories the focus, not your clutter.
