Spring is just around the corner (yes, we know that strictly speaking it is still winter – but there’s no harm looking ahead a little bit)! Spring brings with it a feeling of rejuvenation - baby lambs skipping around, daffodils blooming and the warmth of the sun.
Keeping in the spirit of Spring, let's embrace that new and fresh ethos. Our homes often need to be reawakened after the gloom of winter. Cosy can be substituted for cool, the furry throws stored in the loft in favour of crisp linens. You don’t need to redecorate your whole home, but there are certain things you can change and add to give your place a whole new lease of life.
Display Your Photo’s.
Got a drawer full of photographs? Or maybe they are all held in that lovely cloud above your computer (where everyone’s lives are now stored)! Either way there not going to be filling you with joy squirrelled away. Get out your favourite pics and resolve to buy some fancy photo albums and frames to display them all, you will instantly be transported back to happy times when you look at them.
Choose a table to display your photos on the Eames Elliptical Coffee table would be ideal. Originally designed in 1951, it is often known as the Surfboard Table due to its resemblance.
Add a Splash of Colour.
A touch of colour can make a big difference to your space. Think about the image you want to portray, green is great for adding freshness, while yellow conjure up happy thoughts. If you want to be on trend go for the Pantone colour of the year – ultra violet. If you don’t want to paint walls inject some colour via some furniture, such as new chairs.
Bring the Outside In.
Clean all of your windows (you will want to let as much light in as possible), and you will be surprised how much grubby windows can spoil the effect. Invest in some fresh blooms and plants to lift your room.
Don’t neglect your outdoor space, hopefully you will be able to get outside more as the weather improves, so make sure you have tended to plants, got rid of any broken pots and invested in some smart new furniture.
