Spring seems to come and go. 2 weeks ago, all Londoners were spreading their feet into the sun, but it quickly faded away into the cold. This week though,  it looks like it is back on and hopefully to stay.

So, in the light of celebrating   spring here are a few tips to refresh your interior and prepare it for the warmest summer in history.

 

1. Fresh flowers

Spring comes with the warm air, good moods and a diversity of fresh flowers at affordable prices. So go ahead and fill up those dusty vases. It’s time for some blush.

3. Modernise your lamps

Go ahead and acquire some new shades or even better, if you feel courageous enough –  jump into a DIY project. This small upgrade can change the heart of the entire room. If you are also updating the cushions – a good idea would be to use the same  colour scheme on both cushions and shades.

Here is an example of how  shade can create a different look and feel. Which is your favorite?

4. Tone up your walls with some wallpaper

It is always a good idea for revitalizing a room. It is easy to install, maintain and remove. It adds instant character to any room. Remember that it is ideal to use wallpaper on walls which are interrupted by doors, windows or other elements as little as possible, in order to achieve a greater impact.

A common misconception that goes around is to think that you can only add wallpaper if you want to make it the centre of attention.

Wallpaper can create both a subtle background or be a bold addition. You just need to choose your preference.

A delicate pattern with  thin shapes in a neutral colour can add flair to an otherwise ordinary room without becoming a focal point. Also, arabesque patterns in soft colours can add sophistication without being bold. Even stripes can be in kept in the background as long as they don’t come on intense colours.

If however you are planning for the room to have a certain motif – bold floral, French provincial or geometrical themes can be used in coordination with furniture and fabrics to create a daring interior.
