Spring Home Styling Tips
There’s never been a better time for a spring clean at home! While you’re busting dust and scrubbing surfaces, why not update with some spring styling as well. After all, a change is as good as a holiday. If you’re stuck on where to start, read on for this season’s top home styling tips.
Styling with the Seasons
You’ve rid your wardrobe of winter jeans and jumpers and added summer shorts and dresses. Now it’s time for the rest of the house to follow suit. In winter we find ourselves gravitating towards warm colours, cosy thick blankets and textured layers that offer comfort. When the calendar clicks over to September, changing our home styling to reflect the light and bright colours outside, will refresh and reset your mood and outlook.
Remove the Layers
The first step is to strip everything back. Lift up those dark, heavy rugs and fold away the chunky blankets or throws. Instead, opt for light, natural-coloured rugs to make your space look bigger and brighter. If you still wish to have a throw or blanket on your lounge, choose a light linen or finely knitted throw in a neutral colour. Kmart has a huge selection of soft furnishings and modern decor to refresh your home this spring.
Bring the Outside In
The garden is alive with new spring blooms and gorgeous greenery — bring it inside! Indoor plants are a great way to add a touch of nature to your space. If you have a green thumb and can actually keep a plant alive then props to you! Check out the beautiful blooms to add colour and fragrance to your home from at Pansabella Providores plus a great selection of trending indoor plants. Group your plants for an effortless indoor jungle look! You can find the perfect feature pot and garden accessories from Kmart.
Update your Bedding
Updating your bedding is a fast and effective way to mark the change from winter to spring. Instead of having dark quilts, layered cushions and heavy throws, opt for a lighter colour palette or a quilt with pattern or florals. Trending fabrics for spring are linen, bamboo and cotton. Take this opportunity to introduce cool tones which will offer relief on a hot day. Remember, less is more! Get your beautiful designer linens from Bed Bath N Table.
Group your treasures! If you love it then it’s not clutter, you just need to know how to display it! Books, artwork, trinkets and vases can all go hand in hand, just make sure the colour palette matches the rest of your styling. Groups of odd numbers, an arrangement of different heights and mixing textures like stone, glass and wood will be pleasing to the eye and give your home an authentic look rather than a staged home.
