6 Ways To Brighten Up Your Home For Spring ♥

Spring is almost here, or, if judging by how many spring flowers are already in bloom right now, it may already be here! Spring is a perfect time to have that much needed de-clutter and clean out. It's a time to open up the windows, let some fresh air in and breathe some new life into your home.

Here are some simple ways to brighten up your home for spring -

1. Bring fresh flowers into your home
Spring is all about flowers and there's nothing lovelier than having fresh ones displayed throughout your home. It's such a simple way of brightening up a room and adding a pop of colour - not to mention the gorgeous scent they give off too. If you're looking for some flower inspiration for your home, check out my post on decorating with flowers.

2. Invest in some new furniture
Spring is a perfect time to invest in some new furniture and spruce up your home. Maybe your current sofa is looking a little shabby and you'd love a new one to update your living room - I know I'd absolutely love a fabric sofa rather than the leather one we currently have. With some new pieces of furniture your home will be looking fresher and inviting for spring.

3. Change up your soft furnishings
Spring is a perfect season for embracing prints and brighter colours, so a simple way of brightening up your home is by changing your soft furnishings. Perhaps you'd like to get some new floral print bedding, or change your curtains to a lighter colour? A simple way of brightening up your living room is by changing the cushion covers on your sofa - so simple and cheap but so effective in changing the look and feel of a room.

4. Have a spring clean
I don't know about you, but after a good clean out and deep clean of each room, I'm left feeling so much better about my home. Spring is the perfect time to get rid of all the dust and clutter from the previous seasons and to have everything shining clean and clutter-free. Check out my spring cleaning checklist to make sure you have everything done and dusted - literally!

5. Bring the outside in
Spring is a beautiful season full of new life and why not bring some of that outdoor magic inside? Whether it be succulents or hanging plants in your bathroom, or freshly grown daffodils on your kitchen windowsill, having plants and flowers growing in your home is a great way of embracing spring indoors.

6. Rethink your colour palette
The cheapest and most effective way of changing the whole feel of a room is to give it a new lick of paint and preferably, to change the colour. Spring is a lovely season for decorating in pastels or brighter shades and brightening things up. You don't have to paint the entire room either (we all know how much effort that is!), a feature wall can be enough to brighten up a room and make it lovely for spring.

Will you be brightening up your home for spring?
