Thrifty Spring Home Updates

New season tips and tricks…

As we step into spring, it’s now the perfect time (and excuse!) to refresh your home interiors to create a brighter, lighter space. With a few simple inexpensive steps, it couldn’t be easier to revamp your home for the new season. We have rounded up a few of our must-have tips and tricks to help you on your way to transform any room…

Throws/Cushions

Swapping heavier textures for softer and lighter fabrics, cushions and throws are one of the simplest ways of updating your space. Injecting a bold pop of colour will provide an eye-catching feature, or even adding a new fabric texture for a more interesting aesthetic.

Fragrance 

Banishing away the blues of autumn, fragrance is an instant mood-lifter. Candles and room sprays are an ideal way of creating an inviting, uplifting spring-like scent into your home with minimal effort.

Frames / Candles

Stamp your own personal touch by gathering old family photos and adorning your home with a variety of photo frames. An easy way to switch up your décor and most importantly, transforming your house into a home! Why not create a feature wall of all your framed photos or even doodles / drawings from your kids or loved ones. The Creative Walls book (author Geraldine was interviewed on the blog last year) is brilliant for tips.

Drawer Pulls

Swapping your old drawer pulls with these on-trend glass additions will give old cabinets and chest of drawers a new lease of life, adding a sleek and contempary feel in a matter of moments.

Fresh Flowers 

Nothing spells spring like a fresh bunch of flowers, for a relaxed touch add various flower stems (our personal inexpensive favourite being daffodils) to a mixture of glass jars dotted in and around your home.
