Prepare your home for spring with this living room refresh... read more
With only four days until spring has officially started the lovely Charlotte from Life Simply Styled By Me is here to show us how she is preparing her living room for a refresh.
Our living room is the heart of our home. It’s the place where we retire to after a long days work, the place where we relax with a good book and the place where family memories are made.
When designing our living room last year I instantly fell in love with the glamour of Laura Ashley’s Josette wallpaper and the soft tones of their Dove Grey paint. I wanted our living room to feel calm and cosy, but be modern and chic at the same time.
I’m a true believer that accessories make a space, for me a sofa’s not complete without a scatter cushion or two! Soft furnishings are a great, cost-effective way to change up your style.
To create a sense of spring serene in your home this season try adding a pop of colour. These shades of powdery pinks work perfectly to add a bit of uplifting warmth into the room. I wanted to add a little contrast against the grey so opted for the Nigella Blush Square Velvet Cushion.
Paired with the soft damask print Josette Dove Grey cushion ties the look beautifully together.
Another way to inject a little spring colour into your interior is with the addition of throws. Elegantly draped over the edge of a sofa or perfectly positioned over a storage basket to add texture and another dimension.
This beautifully made, multi-tonal Dylan Blush Throw works so well with the blush velvet cushions. It’s also a stylish, handy way to wrap up and keep warm on those colder spring evenings.
And last but by no means least are the all-important room changers, accessories!
I love to add ambience to a room with the soft glow of candlelight. The geometric style of the Elodie Tea Light Holder in silver enhances the modern feel of the room.
No spring makeover is fully complete without beautiful blooms. Artificial or the real thing, flowers bring the outside in, creating a fresh sense of uplifting life within any room.
For a touch of glamour try these delightful little White Rose In Pot, a pretty white rose in a silver pot that will stay fresh all year long.
I absolutely loved creating this look and hope you love our Spring makeover just as much as we do.
