Décor & Gardening
Spiff up your living space
Pack away those thick rugs, throws and cosy scatter cushions and create a fresh space with a lighter, colourful rug. Geometric shapes are all on trend now and come in a range of patterns and colours. Also, swap out those scatters cushions with this season’s latest designs and fabrics to give your home a fresh look.
Change it up for spring with some new accessories. Stores bring out the latest accessories for the new season with the on-trend colourways, patterns and accessories. You’ll be surprised how a few well-chosen pieces can give your room an upgrade.
Embrace the indoors outdoors trend
The number one trend this year is creating a seamless transition from your home to your outdoor space. The patio has truly become an extension of your indoor space. Don’t think of the outdoors as a separate part of your home. Rather, blend it further with the indoors by minimizing the visual and physical barriers between the two. One of our new favourite trends this season is decorating with furniture and décor that looks like it was created for the indoors. What better time of year to incorporate this trend in time for entertaining family and friends.
It’s an obvious one, but this goes beyond vacuuming and dusting… make sure you do a deep clean of the whole house. You should also clean your soft furnishings so they are fresh and ready for the new season.
Finally, how about a new look for your living space. Try re-arranging the furniture to give your space a mini makeover. Simply work with the placement of the couch, coffee tables and other furniture around your house. You might even find it is time to invest in a new couch or coffee table. After all, spring is the season of out with the old and in with the new.
