Can’t wait for spring? Welcome in the new season early and banish winter blues with these easy ways to give your interiors a fresh start, fast
Paint a picture
Wall art can have a big impact on a room and is an easy way to refresh your colour scheme. Create or update a gallery wall using frames in different shapes and sizes, and fill it with photos or art prints to give your space a new-season boost, from landscapes to abstracts. Try choosing pictures in a few key colours; for an instant uplift, you can’t beat shades of green or blue with sunshine yellow.
Take your pick
of the season
Fresh flowers and foliage are a sure-fire way to give your home a new lease of life. Try a twist on traditional floral arrangements and group two or three vases you love on a windowsill, mantelpiece or counter top to create your own display space. Then place groups of flowers split from bouquets, individual stems and found objects such as shells or driftwood in and around them. Keep updating for a striking seasonal display that looks great all year round.
Spring out of bed
You might not be ready to throw off your cosy winter duvet yet, but if you can’t wait for the new season get a head start and update your bed linen with one of our just-arrived sets. Bring the outdoors in with soothing blues, fresh greens and prints inspired by nature, from florals to bird motifs. Then, when warmer weather finally arrives, switch to a super-soft lightweight duvet and temperature-regulating Comfortably Cool bedding for a serene night’s sleep all summer long.
Find your soft spot
Add colour and pattern in a flash with small accessories – cushions are a great place to start, whether they’re in your living room or bedroom. Vacuum-pack and stash away cushions in heavy materials like faux fur or velvet, then bring in lighter options in fresh finishes, from plain pastels to geometric prints.
Get a breath of fresh air
Scent is a powerful way to change the whole atmosphere in your home and banish any last-season stuffiness in seconds. Try zingy Ginger, fruity Fig or delicate Petals from the elegant new Library of Scent collection, pictured here, or choose from an array of other home fragrance options. Use reed diffusers in your hallway, bedroom or bathroom for sustained, subtle scent, or light a candle in your kitchen or living room for a quick, winter-banishing burst.
