Five ways to welcome spring into your home
For many of us it’s been a long winter stuck indoors, but with spring on the horizon, it’s the perfect opportunity for a quick refresh and to brighten up our decor. From accessories to crockery, here are five quick and easy ways to welcome spring into your new kitchen.
- Declutter the lockdown mess – Months spent homeschooling and working from home has meant that we’ve all accumulated more ‘stuff’ than usual. Pick a weekend and have a good clear out. Old toys, used craft sets, and even tired looking accessories, can be recycled or sold to make room for something new and inviting.
- Brighten up those accessories – Nothing injects warmth and happiness into a home more than a refreshing colour palette. Think pastel colours, floral candles and faux flora. You don’t need to go to the expense of re-decorating a room, but a few new scatter cushions and a new kitchen table centerpiece can make all the difference to a room. This year we’re loving faux eucalyptus leaves, not only are they affordable, but they are easy to arrange and can be paired with most decors.
- Set a fresh table – Staying in doesn’t have to mean eating in front of the TV on the same boring white plates every night. Inject some creativity into a modern kitchen with a dressed We love these Wave Striped Ceramic Bowls from Habitat, the pop of colour will liven up your table – especially when filled with brightly coloured citrus fruits.
- Tired towels – Hand and tea towels need to be replaced more frequently than other linens and should be part of any spring-cleaning ritual. They are often really inexpensive and can create a nice impact with minimal effort.
- Bring the garden in! – Bring the outdoors in by grabbing some freshly cut flowers from the garden and displaying them in little glass vases or even recycled jam jars – we love these from The Flower Studio. Place them on your windowsills, kitchen shelves or even on your bedside table and enjoy little pockets of outdoors around your home.
