1. NEW WARDROBE
Think wardrobes are only for clothes? Think again. Home fabrics are seasonal too, and one of the easiest ways to lighten your décor for warmer weather is by switching it up. Start building a ‘wardrobe’ of warmer and cooler cushion covers and curtains – think velvet, tweed and silk for winter, and linen and cotton for summer. It takes just a few minutes to swap out your pillow cases or hang a different set of drapes, and it will totally transform the look of your living areas.
2. BETTER, BEDDING IS THE BEST
Nothing feels more indulgent than crisp new linen, and now is the perfect time to splash out. This season’s must-have hues are kale, hazelnut, and dusty blues and greens, offset with bursts of pale dogwood, primrose yellow and pink yarrow. Want even more luxury? Opt for higher thread-count bedding.
3. OFF THE WALL
Try something totally new this season: Invigorate your bathroom with vibrant wallpaper. That’s right – tiles aren’t your only option when it comes to decorating your washroom, and the bathroom is one of the ‘safest’ places to try something different and unique. Stripes, geometric patterns and bold flowers are all great options for bathroom wallpaper.
4. GO NUTS FOR COLOUR
Pistachio is set to be one of this season’s hottest hues. Bringing this shade into your home will add the perfect coolness as the weather warms up. Coat a statement wall – for example, in your living room or bathroom – or update your kitchen cupboards with a gorgeous lick of pistachio paint. Want to make your kitchen even fresher? Replace your existing cupboards with shaker-style cabinetry, or accent your existing cupboards with glass-fronted cabinets.
5. MAKE A STATEMENT
Adding a single new item to a living space can completely transform it. Invest in a piece of art, a new item of furniture or a trendy light. These are simple changes that can instantly transform a room and give it a fresh feel. Check out more home decor ideas with this quick fix for tiles.
