7 Ways to Update Your Home for Spring

A change in season is the perfect time to update your home. With spring just around the corner, I thought I’d share seven super simple ways you can give your space a fresh, bright new perspective for the warmer months ahead.
- Spring clean and cut the surface clutter. Now is the time to edit your collectibles so your house isn’t overrun with nick knacks. Only have on display the best-of-the-bunch and remember that groups of an odd number of pieces always work best.
- Remove or replace one piece of furniture. To breathe new life into a room, you don’t have to start from scratch. Simply replace one seen-better-days piece, like a tired coffee table or saggy occasional chair, and you can completely transform a space. If you’re looking for inspiration, a great place to start is by checking out online stores like Super A-Mart.
Use your space wisely by getting creative with storage options. For bespoke shelves try stacking wooden crates, vintage tins or reclaimed boxes. Or look for multifunctional items like a bike rack that doubles as a book shelf, or wall hooks that make a sculptural statement when not used as a coat hook.
- A fresh coat of paint is easy, affordable and gives your space an instant lift. Go lighter and brighter by opting for paler shades or a neutral off-white which will reflect light and illuminate a room. These hues also acts as a brighter backdrop to heavy furniture and make them look spring fresh!
- Refresh your bedroom by packing away heavy linen. Stick with a base of crisp white and then introduce a pop of colour with a new throw or cushions in a modern, oversized print. Oh, and don’t be afraid to mix prints!
- Bring the outdoors in with hanging plants, a teranium, indoor planter or vases filled with springtime blooms.
Give your home a colour pop. While bright shades and sunny days are a match made in heaven, resist the urge to go all out. Create a space that has longevity yet still feels restful, by bringing in colour with just a couple of signature pieces – say, a new rug or different lampshade – rather than a floor to ceiling interpretation of a rainbow!
