Spring styling: how to freshen up your home

26 April, 2016

Welcoming spring into your home isn’t just about introducing bright accents and a lick of fresh paint – it’s the perfect time to make the more subtle changes that will remain throughout summer. You’re probably already well aware of the sweet pastel swatches that spring interior trends bring, but here we explore how you can you can add things that scream the season without switching up too much of your décor.

Let’s explore how to bring the best of spring into your home on a budget:

Floral injection

Think spring, and it immediately conjures up lively images of a brighter space. Adding floral accents of any sort into your home will immediately cheer up any room. Whether you decide to update your cushion textiles, or add in a floral wall mural, there are a whole host of ways to channel floral vibrancy in your interior.

Indoor garden

If your garden is a little on the small side, make the most of your interior space and bring the green inside. The rise of urban gardening means you no longer feel forced to keep plants outdoors, create the look in your home and introduce a couple of terrariums into your kitchen for a modern Nordic-inspired interior – the geometric shapes give a nod to the geo trend while giving your home that fresh spring edge.

Embrace the outdoors

Spring is all about preparing for summer, and what better way than to banish any associations with winter – thick blankets and heavy fabric pillows should be swapped out for lighter linen fabrics. Introduce outdoor cues with the home accessories you choose to channel – milk pail garden pots are a beautiful vase alternative and add old-fashioned, rustic charm to your home.

Arty feature walls

If you’re looking for living room ideas, feature walls are a great way to add colour pops and textures. Photowall has a huge collection of wall canvas art, perfect for you to create a feature wall of your own. Swedish design group, Studio Rita, have created a collection of beautiful canvas designs perfect for a spring/summer interior update.

Spring shelving

Change up your shelving to reflect the palettes of spring, and give your living space a refresh. Luxe up your look and add in gold photoframes, or channel one of this year’s hottest interior trends and add bold lettering onto your shelving. However you choose to accentuate your space, shelving can provide the perfect surface for a quick seasonal update.
