Spring Refresh

There is something utterly rejuvenating about spring. After our long cold winters, it is time to wake up all of our senses and spruce up our surroundings.

When I think about spring, I think of rebirth and renewal with the freshness of the air, hearing the songbirds sing and watching the trees and plants come to life.

This makes me want to bring the freshness of the outdoors inside my home. Nature is full of colour so why not add some fresh pops of colour into your space?

Here are a few tips on how to update your home without making dramatic changes:

Bring in Some Bright Florals

One of the easiest ways to update any room is to add a bouquet of fresh flowers. From bunches of daffodils and tulips to sprigs of lavender or eucalyptus, take advantage of all those flowers at your local grocery store. Between stunning centrepieces and nightstand-friendly bud vases, there is no place in your home that couldn't use a few flowers. And if you want florals all summer long, there are some great silks that look stunningly real.

Change out Your Area Rug

Changing our your area rug for something brighter is an easy way to incorporate a fresh pop of colour. Greet your guests with a welcoming and cheery door mat.

Add Bright Fabrics Into Your Draperies and Toss Cushions

Switching out your toss cushions and throw blankets is a great way of taking your room from winter into spring. Textiles make a huge impact and will guarantee to make your room feel brand new.

Swap out Your Candles

Something as simple as switching out your candles by bringing in the fresh scents of florals and citrus fragrances.

Add Wallpaper

If you have a weekend to spare, consider repainting a room for a quick and easy makeover or adding some wallpaper on a feature wall. Green is the colour of rejuvenation and rebirth, and thus it is a great choice for welcoming a new season.

Add New Tableware and Cookware

Another easy change you can make in your home come springtime is in your kitchen. Bring out the pastel or white dishes and add in bright pieces in your serving ware or salad and soup bowls. Bright colourful accessories paired with neutral plates and bowls are perfect for the warmer weather. With all of the beautiful colours of enamelled cookware out there, it is easy to find a colour to match your spring palette.
