Easy home updates for a spring refresh

Long has spring signaled the perfect moment (and excuse) to spruce up your living space. To help, we've rounded up a few easy tips for updating your home, from decluttering your interiors to adding room-changing new cushions and fresh blooms. Here's how to bring a little sunshine into your abode and carry out your very own spring clean.

Declutter your home

There’s nothing better than a spring clean to refresh the mind. Have a good sort out, clear the clutter and consider new storage options to keep any future mess at bay. For a fun storage option, look to rattan and wicker baskets that will also give off strong warm-weather vibes. Clean the windows to let the light in and tuck away your cold weather essentials – those high-tog duvets, heavy throws and faux fur cushions can go into hibernation.

Swap your textiles

Add a punch of colour to your home by changing up your textiles  a fool-proof (and affordable) way of making your space feel exciting and lively. Pile up cushions in botanical patterns on the sofa, drape a light throw across your favourite armchair or invest in a new rug for maximum impact with minimal effort. If you’re not afraid of making a statement, go for bright and bold patterns. Not quite there yet? Opt for soft pastels for a dreamlike spring feel instead.


Restyle your surfaces

For an easy, spring-ready update, change up the styling of your surfaces. Swap in a new vase, pop a plant or two on your windowsill, adorn your shelves with fresh art prints or switch up that stack of aesthetically-pleasing magazines you proudly display on your coffee table.





Bring the outside in

Nothing says spring quite like the look and smell of the first blooms of the season. Load up on fresh flowers, such as daffodils and peonies, for the ultimate spring mood, and consider adding some leafy greens to your space, too. These small additions are guaranteed to instantly make your home feel more alive.


Pick a fresh new scent

Spring is the best time to update your signature home scent. Keep your abode smelling like heaven all season long by switching those wintery gingerbread and pine-scented candles for spring-friendly scents. Notes of fresh florals and zingy citrus are your perfect companions, and if candles are too much ‘winter hygge’ for you, opt for reed diffusers or room sprays instead.


Update your bed linen 

Wake up your bedroom with fresh new bed linen, starting by replacing winter fabrics with natural materials such as linen, cotton and silk to mark the new season. Think nature-inspired hues when choosing your new bedding – that’s earthy neutrals, sunny yellows, light blues and soft pinks. Pair crisp neutrals with spring-like pastels and you’ll have a light and airy bedroom with all the relaxing, calm feels.
