It’s not all about cleaning when it comes to spring, it’s the perfect time to give your home a refresh ahead of the warmer months.
From being bold with colour to decorating your garden entertainment area with natural materials, we’ve teamed up with homeware brand dwell to provide you with their top tips for preparing your home, both inside and out.
Refresh soft furnishings
Embrace springtime and transform your home by injecting a palette of colourful shades into your interiors. One of the best ways to do this is by updating your soft furnishings like cushions, rugs and throws. Swap heavier fabrics and cooler tones for florals, pops of colour like greens, pinks and yellows and lighter materials like linen. This will not only create a new look, but a cheerful environment for yourself and your guests to enjoy. Don't forget the smaller details like a spring scented candle and freshly cut flowers.
Maintain and decorate your stove
Although most useful and practical throughout the colder months, don’t forget about your wood burning stove in the spring. Take the time to maintain and clean your stove to prepare it ahead of the winter months, and don’t forget to highlight it within your décor. The beauty of wood burning stoves is that they are timeless, so no matter what your style is, your stove creates an attractive focal point throughout the year. Don’t let it gather dust during spring – instead, decorate your stove by displaying ornaments, plants and accessories either on top or next to it.
Get set for entertaining
There’s no better time than spring to begin preparing your outdoor space in anticipation of the long evenings and sunny weekends that you’ll soon be enjoying. From alfresco dining to sunbathing, a tiled garden provides a functional and modern solution that will last for years to come. For a contemporary exterior which breaks the boundaries between inside and outside, go for a tile with a varied colour blend, which exudes a natural stone aesthetic.
Connect with nature
When it comes to texture and materials in the garden, 2022 is all about including elements that have a natural feel. From raffia and jute, to teak and rope, natural materials are an aesthetically modern choice and work not only inside your home, but in the garden too. Ensuring a seamless connection with nature, upgrade your garden furniture to woven materials such as wicker, for a sustainable addition to outside areas.
