After a long, cold and dreary winter, signs of spring are at last emerging. Now is the perfect opportunity to brighten up your home décor and welcome the much-awaited change of season. Here are some ideas:

Flowers

Flowers brighten up any room, and as your garden begins to awaken, you’ll be able to snip some lovely blooms and give them pride of place in your living room.

A small, understated arrangement is very effective.

Fabrics

Put away the dark heavy throws and cushions you had out during the winter. Replace them with lighter fabrics in bright colors to welcome the spring.

Curtains

If you can, take down the heavy curtains and drapes you used to block out the grey winter skies and use lighter, brighter fabrics and shades that let natural light and sunshine into the room.

Keväistä keskiviikkoa🌷🌱🌸🌿🌼 Harmaankarkoitusverhot todella toimivat, aurinkokin kävi jo vilahtamassa☀️ Pääsiäisverhoiksikin näitä varmaan voisi kutsua (katsotaan vaan ovatko ikkunassa vielä syksylläkin😆…) Käsittämättömän paljon oli ikkunassa mustaa talvisen kynttilöiden polttelun jäljiltä, huhhuh🤭 Eilinen oli ahkera siivous-ja järjestelypäivä keittiössä, mutta hommaa riittää vielä, kuten kuvasta näkyy. Ehkä vaihdan myös nuo ”verhonpidikkeet” (tai sitten en😅) I wish you a springish wednesday🌷🌿🌸🌱🌼 #kevätverhot #pääsiäisverhot #harmaankarkoitusta #springcurtains #eastercurtains #kevätvärejä #springcolours #awaywiththegrey

Lampshades

To give a room a refreshed look as spring starts, change the lampshades on your table and floor lamps.

Get brightly-colored lampshades which you can store safely when autumn returns.

Accessories

Declutter and brighten the room up.  Use light-colored candles. Replace dark ornaments and accessories with glass or brightly colored items.
