As we finally step into Spring, we’re looking for easy ways to refresh our homes, bringing a new look and feel for the warmer months ahead. Clever styling tips, easy decorating updates and fresh fragrances all give fuss-free ways to revitalize a room in no time. Whether you’re getting ready to entertain over Easter or just wanting to breathe new life and energy into your home, check out our tips below for some easy ways to feel the joys of Spring.
Bring Nature Inside
Indulge in seasonal flowers and greenery that bring the essence of a Spring garden into your home. We love planted bulbs - not only do they last longer than cut flowers, but their natural look is perfect for this time of year. The UK florist Willow Crossley’s beautiful Instagram feed is a great place to look for inspiration - such as these Muscari shown here.
Bring a fresh and inspiring atmosphere to your home in an instant with a new reed diffuser. Designed to release their delicate fragrance all day long, they help revitalise your living space and lift your mood from the moment you walk through the door. At this time of year, we love to use our Water Hyacinth & Lime Blossom fragrance. This invigorating scent is reminiscent of lazy afternoons on the banks of the Saigon River and perfect for Spring.
Prepare for Easter Entertaining
Some quick changes to your table will give it a new lease of life. Swap your plain table linen for a pretty print like the ones on these Indian block printed napkins by Ibbi- go for the matching table cloths if you want the full look. We also like to give our mirrored candle glasses a second life as small vases, filling them with fresh, white flowers and scattering them up the table to give a relaxed but elegant look.
Change Up Your Colours
Breathe new life into your home decor with a few easy changes. Switching out your wintry cushions for something brighter and more colourful will change the look of a room in one easy move. We love British fabric company Fermoie’s selection. Their linen printed cushions come in endless prints and colours, bringing instant brightness to any room..
Create a New Centrepiece
Use an assortment of candles, diffusers and flowers to create a new focal point. Give your coffee table a makeover by grouping together fresh flowers - think daffodils, bluebells and hyacinths - with different sized candles and a diffuser. We also like to layer up our fragrances, placing a fresh, floral Vietnamese Rose & Delentii candle with something more sultry such as our Tuberose & Wild Fig diffuser to create a truly luxurious atmosphere.
