Sunnier Times Ahead: Getting Ready for Spring 2023

As the days grow longer and the temperature rises, it feels like the perfect time to give your home a much-needed Spring refresh. The warmer weather brings the opportunity to bring bright and cheerful colours into your home, creating an idyllic space for you to enjoy the season. Outside of redesigning a space to feel new and relaxing, we’ll be ready for Summer in time for the late BBQ nights, gatherings, and garden lounging.

Embracing the vibrant colours

Spring is all about bright and bold colours. It only takes a walk around the park or garden to see all the new flowers that give nature a little glow-up after the wintery months. Similarly, when thinking about freshening up our homes, one of the easiest ways is with a fresh coat of paint. For the months ahead, incorporating pastel and bright colours on walls is an excellent way to embody the season’s spirit.

Updating your fabrics

You can transform any room into a space perfect for the sunny months ahead by incorporating a few accessories and a statement piece. Updating fabrics in a room is an easy way to add texture and colour, especially if you prefer to keep your walls white year-round. To achieve this trend, consider adding some throw pillows with earthy patterns and textures or a cosy area rug in a natural tone.

To create a layered look, you can also experiment with mixing and matching different fabrics, such as linen, cotton, and wool. A statement piece of furniture, like an upholstered chair can also help tie the room together.

Lounging fit for royals

As we mentioned earlier, late evening dinners have to be one of our favourite parts of longer days and warmer nights, which sounds like the perfect excuse to give our gardens a little TLC. Investing in outdoor accessories such as string lights or lanterns can make a big difference in creating a warm and intimate ambience. These lighting options can be hung from trees or draped across outdoor structures to add a touch of charm and character to your space.

Not only do they provide functional lighting for your outdoor gatherings, but they also create an inviting atmosphere that’s perfect for unwinding after a long day. So, whether you’re hosting a family dinner or enjoying a glass of wine with friends, outdoor accessories can help transform your garden into a peaceful retreat.

Add natural finishing touches

Missed the early-spring potting season? Don’t worry. It’s never too late to add some greenery to your home. Incorporating plants and natural elements inside and outside your home can be a great way to add life and vitality to your space. Not only do plants have plenty of health benefits, they can also bring a vibrant dash of green to areas that can be hard to accessorise.

Adding plants and natural elements to your decor is an easy and affordable way to breathe new life into any room. From hanging plants and succulents to natural wreaths and woven rugs, various options suit any style and space to create a calming atmosphere.
