With the budding blossom and warming weather, the arrival of Spring signals a time for change, growth and rejuvenation. Just like we begin to remove the heavy layers of clothing, Spring too is the ideal time of year to reassess and reinvigorate our homes. There is nothing like a good clean out and declutter to make space for all that the new season has to offer. From our tried and trusted Spring cleaning tricks to some of our favorite seasonal home decor tips, we guarantee our Spring recommendations will leave your home feeling lighter, brighter and ready for a fresh start!
Spring is the perfect time to get rid of any clutter you have lying around. Whether you need to re-think your storage options, reorganize your living spaces or recycle some pre-loved items that you haven’t used for while. Decluttering your home will simplify your life.
They don’t call it call it Spring cleaning nothing. From degreasing the oven to having your carpets and upholstery cleaned, it’s the season to roll your sleeves up and get mean!
Even if dusting is a part of your regular cleaning routine, theres nothing like giving your home a full once over to get into all of those hard to reach places. Don’t forget to dust inside display cabinetry, behind the TV, under the rug, on-top of your door frame mouldings and between the blinds!
Are you tired of your current decor? You don’t need to start from scratch to make it feel new and exciting. Refresh and update your look by adding a lick of new paint, re-upholstering that old chair, or investing in a new and more modern piece. It’s surprising how a small yet simple change can create a fresh new perspective.
GREEN HOUSE EFFECT:
There is nothing that’s more symbolic of new beginnings, than new life itself. Replace any fake or dried flowers with fresh florals and greenery to bring a sense of nature and the outdoors inside. Think herb boxes, hanging plant globes or a lush indoor tree.
LIGHTEN & BRIGHTEN:
The arrival of Spring signals the change of longer days and shorter nights. It’s a time to embrace the extra light by cleaning the windows, swapping out heavy window treatments and opening up the house up to the sunshine.
Nothing says spring quite like some fabulous florals – and we’re not just talking about the type you get in vase! Go beyond the typical seasonal variety and add a touch of floral inspired wallpaper or fabric for an instant transformation.
PLAY WITH PASTELS:
If the 2016 Pantone colors were anything to go by, this year is the Spring to play with pastels. Whether your daring enough to re-paint a whole room or would prefer to experiment will accessories or an accent chair, a new pastel hue such as rose or serenity can leave you feeling calm and relaxed and ready for the new season.
