Interiors:10 spring home makeover ideas

Provide your home with an instant refresh with the pick of this season’s new interior accessories 

1. Graphic design

Bring new life to your living room and add an instant pop of colour by updating your cushions. This double-sided cushion features a prism print on one side, with a tonal blue print on the other.

2. Floor focus

Add a new design and focus to your floor through the use of well-placed rugs. For a contemporary look, try a rug with a geometric design or a textured feel.

3. Mirror mirror

Make a room feel fresher, brighter and lighter by hanging a mirror on the wall. It will naturally reflect light and can even help a small room feel bigger than it really is.


4. Light touch

Having the right amount of light can do wonders for a room, so invest your cash in new lighting options. An angled floor lamp or table lamp are both perfect for a living room.


5. Window dressing

Give your windows a new look by switching to shutters. These ombre green solid shutters add an insulating layer to keep warmth in, and block out light, too.

6. Floral delights

Fresh or artificial flowers help lift a room. Fill a vase with a few favourite stems of spring blooms, such as colourful tulips or daffodils.

7. Wonderwall

Create your own gallery-style wall by hanging a selection of new pictures in various shapes and sizes. Alternatively, get the look with a multi frame that includes a mixture of landscape and portrait options.

9. Colour coordination

Use accessories to help bring an interior design scheme together and create a fresh new look. Be inspired by the key looks for this spring, including bold colour clashes, exotic jungle prints and molten metallics.


10. Mood lighting

Pretty candles never fail to please and can help add atmosphere and scent. Add a touch of glam with a group of decorative tea light holders, metal lanterns or shiny candlesticks.
