Mix your materials

Spring is all about renewal – from the freshest green leaves on the trees to soft, cuddly lambs. We’re taking this inspiration into the home with textures that are big on comfort, without forgetting vibrant colours. Sink into plush, luxurious velvet cushions and add softness with lightweight throws across sofas, chairs and beds.

Adding greenery is a proven way to help you feel energised through the season, too. Choose leafy foliage or, if you’re not green-fingered, go faux with artificial plants in a range of shapes and sizes. We particularly like succulents, bonsai trees and orchids – they look beautifully fresh without any of the effort.


Serve up something delicious

If there’s one thing guaranteed to make you feel fantastic from the inside out, it’s soul-boosting food – so make sure your kitchen’s kitted out for whipping up a real feast. Storage jars filled with colourful spices or pulses look great on display, while bakeware you can bring straight to the table is perfect for serving up one-pot wonders.

Reorganise your shelves or cupboards so your ingredients are close to hand, whether you’re cooking up a family curry or an indulgent dessert – try the Cook with M&S app for some culinary inspiration.

Change your mood

After a long day at work, there’s nothing better than coming back to a calm and welcoming atmosphere. Play with pattern and colour to change the ambience of your interiors. Add vibrancy with shades like forest green, jade or olive on cushions, bedding, or an accent wall. Bold prints will up the drama and draw the eye into the room.

Lighting with a welcoming glow is another great way boost your mood. Keep the shutters, blinds or curtains open and let the fresh air in as often as possible.
