With spring around the corner, we’ve got top tips from our in-house interior design expert Alex Reeves, to help update your home this Easter. Whatever your budget and style, use this luxuriously long weekend to give your home a fresh new look.
Bringing fresh and bright colours into the home can easily turn a winter space into a summer ready home. Whether you opt for subtle splashes or stand our colour blocking, spring is the perfect time to try something new. Pastel choices like pale pinks and dusty blues are great for those with a neutral scheme and look beautiful teamed with soft greys, metallic tones and natural wood. For those wanting a bolder look, take inspiration from the colour block trend seen on this seasons catwalk. Try a brightly coloured rug, painted feature wall or bold sofa for the living room. Our yellow Knightley sofa offers the ultimate in colour blocking style.
There’s nothing quite like introducing new accessories into the home to help achieve that new look. A well chosen rug, lamp, chair or mirror can bring an additional dimension to any room. Try a simple scatter cushion to bring extra colour or pattern to your sofa or armchair. Our Jessica Zoob Pleasure Garden cushion offers a stylish botanical print, whereas our Peony Velvet cushion adds a pop of colour and texture.
Help bring the outdoors in with simple spring flowers and indoor plants. There’s no need to break the bank with expensive floral arrangements; daffodils, tulips and wild flowers offer a colourful and casual style. Get creative with your floral display’s by using old jam jars, jugs and vases of differing shapes and sizes. Introducing indoor plants to the home brings clean and fresh air into any room, whilst also offering a stylish and eclectic style.
For those with a more limited budget, DIY updates can be easy and cost effective, a great chance to get creative. Give your kitchen chairs or bedside table an instant refresh with a lick of your favourite paint colour. Customise lamps, throws or curtains with trims and fringing. We love brightly coloured pom pom trims for a fun and stylish look.
