Spring Refresh

Spring in the air, and we couldn’t be happier. The warmer, longer days gets us thinking about refreshing our living spaces to make the most of the warmer weather conditions. Welcome the season with a spruce up to your home. We naturally start thinking about alfresco dining, entertaining and of course family and friends descending for the Christmas holidays.

Tip 1: Remove and store throws. The warmer days call for uncluttered, simple, easy spaces, so store away any throws and rugs until next year. Replace with lighter fabrics suitable for the warmer months. Choose brighter colours to layer with to help refresh and brighten up the space. Bold colour trends are predicted with indigo as popular as ever as well as turmeric, mustard and yellow.

 Tip 2:Time to re -organize your cabinets, bookshelves and shelves. Declutter and throw out or store those pieces that you just don’t love. Simple styling is key, take inspiration from some of our recent photoshoots but the very talented Louise from Villa Styling, pair colours, add greenery and keep it simple. Lastly add texture, particularly if you are going for a quintessentially coastal look.

 Tip 3 :Rearrange your furniture. A good room rearrangement can make the world of difference and open up spaces that you may have not thought about. Should you find some space, add a statement chair to add texture, colour or jut a general point of difference. Add a touch of greenery to your room to help bring the outdoors in. Greenery, indoor plants and greenery on textiles continues to trend strongly for 2019.

Tip 4: For the ultimate makeover, invest in a new statement piece for your living or dining area. Upgrade the family dining table or makeover the living area with a new lounge suite, suitable for the whole family.
