Spring has finally arrived (Australia), which means it's time to put away the heaters and big jackets. Spring is probably the most iconic season when it comes to visual imagery, which means that you have a lot of inspiration to pull from when it comes to bringing that spirit into your personal space. Instead of getting overwhelmed by all of the options, try to narrow your focus down to one idea and build it from there.
Here are two easy ideas to give your home all the energy, excitement, and at-home comfort of spring:
1. Think Colour
Spring is all about blooming flowers and a connection to the earth, so embrace bright colours when decorating. Purple, white and orangish-reds work perfectly as base colors for your spring palette. Use bright tones for a splash of colour and contrast: pinks, creams and greens will pop out beautifully.
You can incorporate these colours anywhere in your decorating, from your bedding and curtains to the napkins you use for BBQ's. Coming up with a specific colour scheme in advance may assist you with creating a sense of personal touch within your home.
2. Breathe in, Breathe out
Lavender, rose, jasmine -- almost half of the ideas that come to mind when you think of spring come down to smells. Bringing the scent of spring into your home will set that harvest atmosphere that's sure to leave you feeling cozy.
Consider using scented candles or a reed diffuser that lets out a comfortable scent, or decorate rooms with floral scented pot pourri. If you're having friends over, make some cinnamon tea: Not only will your guests love the drink, the essence will make your home smell like a garden.
