3 Ways To Freshen Up Your Home For Spring

As the night’s grow lighter and the gloomy weather starts to disappear, we are all too happy to say hello to crisp sunny mornings and flowers coming into bloom. With spring thankfully just a moment away this year; it’s now the perfect time to freshen up your home with an injection of bright colours to compliment that spring clean. The catwalks for this new season are abundant in pastel colours, bold prints and contrasting textures and it seems that style is seeping into interior design for the new season. Floral designs are always a classic choice for the home at this time of year but if you fancy something a little different then we’ll show you various ways to reinvent your home this spring.

Spring colours


Introducing pastel shades is the perfect way to add colour to your home without overpowering the space. Mixing pastels with whites or creams and harmonising different shades will create an understated and modern look which still has heaps of personality. Choosing a vertical blind in a perfect pastel hue will be just the trick to update any room in your house for spring. More sugary shades have that lovely retro appeal if that’s your style. Take your pick from Parma violets, lemon yellows and mint greens which will not only soften up your room but also keep it bang on trend.

Spring patterns


If pastels are that little bit too subtle for you then a roller blind with a bold pattern could be more suited to you. With paisley patterns and eastern European designs proving popular in 2014 (the perfect escape from the grey and gloomy skies of the north)  the roller blind would be a fun and unapologetic way to transform the whole room and update it for the new season.  Use the pattern as a central theme and add matching cushions and accessories for a cheap and fuss free way re-style any room in your home.

Spring fabrics and materials


Colours and patterns are great ways to add a little extra something to your home but don’t forget to overlook different textures you could use as well. Mixing and matching fabrics and materials can add another dimension to the room whilst still sticking with a central colour. Why not try using different types of wood in your living room?  The addition of wooden Venetian blinds would be a fantastic way to add a new lease of life to your wooden floors keeping it classic yet modern and bringing a taste of the outside in.
