Posted on Monday, March 16, 2020

With flowers starting to bloom and Easter eggs on the shelves, spring is finally in sight after a long and stormy winter. As the season of new beginnings approaches, experts at ScS share their top tips to get your home feeling fresh and revitalised.

Bring the season inside with flowers

Florals for spring will always be on trend and with so many beautiful flowers blooming at this time of year, this is one of the easiest ways to brighten your home. Not only do they look great on any table, mantlepiece or countertop, having flowers in the home also helps to freshen the air and can help to reduce stress.

To stay in tune with the season, why not try some colourful tulips to add a splash of colour to a neutral palette?

Freshen up your furnishings

What better time to spruce up your living room with a new look? New furnishings are a perfect way to reinvent your space. Having a set of seasonal throws and cushions that can be easily swapped out when the time comes is a great way to give your home a brand-new look, as trends change with the seasons.

Update your colour scheme

Spring is the perfect season to redecorate, as we deep clean, re-organise and say out with the old and in with the new. If this is true for you this year, having a spring-friendly colour scheme running throughout your home will instantly give the space a fresher, lighter feel.

Subtle pastel colours such as duck egg blue, yellow and pink continue to be huge trends this season. Working these colours into soft furnishings like cushions, duvet covers and throws, as well as ornaments and table centre pieces is a great way to introduce these colours at a low cost.

Add artwork to the home

Artwork is a great way to add personality and when thinking about sprucing up the style for spring, why not opt for styles and colours which complement the season?

Choosing delicate floral, pastel pieces is a great way of adding colour while keeping a fresh theme. Minimal images such as linework drawings and black and white sketches add a creative edge to any space, while remaining clean and stylish for spring.

Introduce a new aroma

Flowers will inevitably add a new scent to your space, however, it can be an expensive option in terms of upkeep. As an alternative, invest in seasonal fragrances including fresh cotton and citrus fruits, to help bring this bright and airy trend to life. If candles aren’t your thing, why not invest in a reed diffuser? These are longer lasting and better for the environment, while offering the same benefits.
