1. First impressions

If your front door is looking a little handled, buying a new doorknob, a brass letterbox or a stainless-steel house number are small touches that instantly make your home feel more welcoming. If you have a front garden, give it a little sprucing up with new plants and fresh lick of paint on the window ledges.

2. Outdoors-in

Spring is that first sighting of the flowers emerging: The grass is looking greener and the birds are singing. Make the extra effort to bringing the outdoors-in by introducing indoor plants, it’s a low-effort/high-reward to connect with spring.

3. Statement colours

Another way of getting your décor ready for spring is introducing statement colours. This can be achieved by investing in a colourful piece of furniture or styling a wall with contemporary wallpaper. Get your florals-for-spring fix with bright cottage flowers or soften a look with a delicate blossom pattern, both a sure-fire way to dust away the winter blues and breathe new life into your home.
