With the warmer months finally on the horizon, revitalising your interior for a fresher spring feel is essential in banishing the dull spirit of winter from your home and inviting the light in. The nights huddled in blankets, hands cradling hot cocoa and pyjama socks pulled as high as the elastic will allow, are soon to become sitting in the late evening sun on the terrace sipping crisp dry white, soaking in the last of the oily dusk glow.
Letting in the light
One thing that’s going to really make a difference in terms of the way your home feels is the amount of light you let in. The more daylight is flooding into your home, the more you will feel the change in the daylight hours and the environment outside. Seasons are a great decorative piece, even if it means investing in some apex windows and stripping back the heavy woven curtains from the front room.
Nothing brings the outside in quite like a bit of horticulture. Popping a few plants on the windowsill can brighten the whole feeling of a room and transform a wintery enclosure into a light summery haven. Plants can do far more than simply look great too, they actually improve our mood and the quality of air in our homes. So, decorate with a touch of greenery and give your home a bit more summer lovin’ this coming season.
Declutter and Clearout
Whether you live in a shared ownership home in Hampshire, a bigger home in the midlands or you have a big home in Kent, something that looks fresh clean and decluttered is going to be far more appealing than a space spilling out at the seams with bric-a-brac you simply don’t need. This is especially important if you’re looking to sell your home. What looks like an organised home will suggest an organised and easygoing lifestyle – a real incentive for buyers and a fresher feel for your home and the fun you have in it.
Colours of the season
One of the best ways to bring any brightness into your home is to change up the colour scheme. The cool blues and minimal greys are being swapped for pops of pastel and electric yellows. Don’t be afraid to inject some summer sensation into your space whether it be cushions, throws or a collection of quirky picture frames. Bringing in the colour of the seasons will help you feel a little closer with the outside and a touch more in tune with nature.
So whether summer seems a million miles away at the minute or your itching for the sun to show its face, sprinkling a little more of the season into your home can be just the vitality your home needs.
