Preparing your home for Spring

When it comes to spring, it's not only about cleaning; it's also the ideal time to renew your home in preparation for the warmer months ahead.

Refresh soft furnishings
Inject a palette of colourful tones into your décor to celebrate springtime and change your home. Updating your soft furnishings, such as cushions, carpets, and throws, is one of the finest methods to do this. Florals, flashes of colour like greens, pinks, and yellows, and lighter materials like linen should be used instead of heavier textiles and cooler tones. This will not only give your home a fresh design, but also a more joyful atmosphere for you and your guests to enjoy. Don't overlook the finer points, such as a spring-scented candle and fresh-cut flowers.

Maintain and decorate your stove
Don't forget about your wood burning stove in the spring, even though it's most useful and handy during the colder months. Take the time to clean and maintain your stove in preparation for the next winter months, and don't forget to showcase it in your décor. Wood burning stoves have the advantage of being timeless, so no matter what your style is, your stove will be a beautiful focal point throughout the year. Don't let your stove collect dust in spring; instead, adorn it by placing ornaments, plants, and accessories on top of or next to it.

Get set for entertaining
There's no better time than spring to start preparing your outside space in preparation for the long hours and sunny weekends ahead. A tiled garden provides a useful and modern solution for alfresco dining and sunbathing that will last for years. Choose a tile with a variegated colour combination that radiates a natural stone feel for a contemporary exterior that blurs the lines between inside and out.

Connect with nature
When it comes to texture and materials in the garden, the year 2022 is all about incorporating natural components. Natural materials, such as raffia and jute, as well as teak and rope, are an aesthetically modern alternative that can be used both inside and outside the home. Upgrade your garden furniture to woven materials like wicker for a sustainable complement to outdoor settings, ensuring a seamless link with nature.
