As we wrap up the winter months and head into spring, you might find your home in desperate need of a refresh due to the change in seasons.
Refreshing the styling of your home not only feels super satisfying, but it also helps to avoid your interiors appearing dull and dated. We are frequently refreshing our own Tweed Heads furniture showroom to keep things interesting, and to showcase the looks and styles we are currently loving.
The good news is, there are some simple and cost-effective changes you can make yourself to help transform your home and make it feel brand new! Updating your home design doesn’t have to be expensive, or hard work - it can be the simple touches that make all the difference, like switching up your sofa cushions, introducing a hero artwork, or even just bringing some plants into the space.
If your home is in need of a quick update, our interior designers have put together 4 easy ways you can refresh your home this spring! Read on for our top tips and some inspiration to get you started.
Use textiles to introduce colour
If you’re looking to update your living room or bedroom spaces, consider switching up your textiles for spring to add colour and texture. With the warmer weather and sunnier days approaching, adding some fresh bursts of colour into your space through cushions, throws and floor rugs can be a simple and effective way to update your interiors.
Make sure you choose textiles in complementary tones that will work together harmoniously with your existing decor - we have been loving soft pastel shades, watercolour blues and even modern monochrome patterns when it comes to cushion selections. It’s amazing what a new rug and some beautiful cushions can do to transform a space!
Introduce a hero artwork
Another incredibly effective way to add some fresh colour into your home for spring is through a hero artwork. If your home has any empty walls or areas that feel a little bare, consider filling the space with a beautiful piece of art as a focal point for the room.
Depending on your personal style, you can go bold with a colourful abstract canvas, or for something more subtle we love ocean-scapes and botanical prints. The right piece of art can totally transform your space and make it feel completely different - you can check out our tips for choosing the perfect artwork here.
Make the most of plants and foliage
Spring is all about embracing the change of season and the beauty of nature. Introducing plants and greenery into your home is the perfect way to breathe life into your space and give it a fresh update for the sunnier months.
Even if you’re not a green thumb, there are plenty of high-quality artificial plants that look just as good as the real deal (while being much easier to maintain!). It can be as simple as including a few small potted plants to dress side tables and kitchen bench-tops, or a larger statement floor plant to make an impact in an empty corner.
Replace one piece of furniture
Refreshing your home doesn’t necessarily have to mean updating all of your furniture and decor - in fact, even just replacing one key piece of furniture can help to make your space look and feel completely different.
Whether it’s your living room sofa, coffee table or dining chairs, consider switching out just one existing furniture item to something brand new to add a fresh new feel to your home. If you’ve found a beautiful piece of furniture that you can’t stop thinking about, spring is the perfect time to add it to your home decor!
So if your home is needing a little bit of TLC this spring, keep the above tips in mind to refresh your home without blowing the budget!
