Warm weather is well and truly here and spring is in full swing! Taking inspiration from the natural environment, interior design is changing to focus on a more bright, light and airy interior with plenty of florals. If you’ve been prepping for some spring cleaning, why not take the opportunity to give your home a bit of a makeover, ready for the warmer months ahead.
World of Style Interior Designer, Bonnie Lukasik, offers her top 5 ways to freshen up your space this spring.
Remove layers and pair back furnishings and decor
It’s time for thick woollen rugs and layered linen to be stored away, making way for more airy linen throws if you still want to enjoy snuggling under a blanket in the evening. Consider something light to mid-tone with a touch of colour, or a funky pattern that ties into your spring look.
Refresh your furnishings and linen
It’s time to freshen up your furnishings, particularly now that your home can be opened up more regularly to allow that beautiful spring breeze to flow through. Give your fabric or leather sofas and cushions a deep clean. Bring in some more vibrant colours by adding throw cushions, paired with some neutral tones to provide the balance your space has been craving.
Restyle your space
Spring is all about refreshing your space and what better way to do this than updating your homewares and décor. Think about adding some textured elements, such as pottery and vases for your spring blooms. Change up your artwork or replace your lamp shades to something brighter and more invigorating.
Add more greenery
Indoor plants are here to stay and are a great way to add a touch of nature to your home. Dress your living room with large leafy branches in a generous vase or pot.
Update your playlist
What better way to celebrate spring than to update your playlist with some spring tunes to get you in the mood! Music stimulates creativity, which can help inspire your restyling and make you feel good in general.
