Why not take a quick tour around the house with us and discover how to give each room a spring spruce up?
Hallway Decor Ideas
Often the first part of an interior to be noticed on arrival, a hallway’s decor can make a great first impression. Simply adding some new decorative designs can really freshen up the appearance of the hall and set the tone for the rest of your home.
From fun wall mounted animal heads to decorative hallway mirrors, there’s a wide choice of hallway accessories to adorn your entranceway or add visual interest to spaces connecting rooms. To keep a door open between the hallway and other rooms, unusual door stops can be a useful addition while also creating a sense of spaciousness. For a table or surface in the hallway, attractive plant pots and hallway ornaments are sure to catch the eye.
Just as adorable as a real dog, this Silver Dachshund Figure is the perfect companion to your entrance to make guests feel welcome. The handsome hound ornament will be an elegant, chic addition to any hallway and will obediently stay and guard your home while you’re away:
Bedroom decor and colours can be changed to match each season, with bright florals being a lovely choice for spring and summer. Whether you’re drawing back the curtains in the morning and letting the natural light stream in or settling down for a cosy sleep after a long day, you can imagine being surrounded by a rainbow of flowers in an English wildflower meadow, with Bluebellgray’s Tetbury Meadow King Duvet Cover & Pillowcase Set. Made from soft 300 thread count 100% cotton sateen, this designer Bluebellgray bedding set will add luxury, colour and comfort to any modern bedroom:
Living Room Decor
A living room should feel relaxed and inviting, being a space where much leisure time is spent as well as time entertaining guests. Well chosen living room decor will enhance the look and atmosphere of your lounge interior, making it an even more enjoyable place to be.
With garland lights and globes, clocks and models, photo frames and more, there’s a plethora of decorative accessories which are ideal for sprucing up this vital room of the house for the warmer months.
To add a sophisticated touch of lustre to your living room, this unique Pols Potten Graphic Luster Large Vase will look wonderful on display with or without flowers, with its blue and gold tones shimmering in the spring sunshine:
Children’s Room Decor
While the warmer spring weather may allow children to spend more time outdoors, children’s rooms and playrooms are important spaces for resting, learning or enjoying imaginative play all year round. Fun and quirky children’s room homeware and decorative finishing touches can help you add charm and magic to these rooms, creating an environment a child will love to call their own.
Children’s lighting such as string lights, wall lights, night lights and table lamps with enchanting designs will bring a warm glow to illuminate a child’s bedroom or nursery by day or by night. When the time comes for lights out, soft and cosy Snurk bedding can help them snuggle down for a good night’s sleep. Whether your little one wishes to be a ballerina, a horse rider, a princess or an astronaut, the hats and costumes of these characters are printed on the bedding so they can dance, gallop or launch into their dreams.
If you’re looking for a practical way to spruce up the children’s space, 3 Sprouts’ toy storage boxes are an ideal solution for keeping things tidy and organised, while their felt applique designs of animal characters are truly adorable.
Loved by children and adults alike, Fiona Walker England’s handmade felt animal head decorations are sure to stand out, turn heads and raise a smile. How about this cheeky wall mounted Baboon for the children’s room?
Spruce Up Scandinavian Style…
A firmly established, evolving trend which is expected to continue growing in popularity in 2018, Danish and Scandinavian style homeware and accessories are a great way to freshen up any room, thanks to their clean lines and beautifully minimalist, stripped-back aesthetics. The Scandi look is going darker this year, with bolder, richer colours and darker woods being introduced.
In The Kitchen…
A simple way to add a Scandinavian touch to your kitchen breakfast bar, the Normann Copenhagen Form Barstool in Grey and Walnut combines an elegant curved shell style chair with dark walnut wood frame. This new colour combination is a little more striking than the softer tones seen in the original Form bar stools, while remaining true to the understated Scandinavian style:
And The Bathroom…
As the room where we spend time sprucing ourselves up, the bathroom is ideally suited to clean, fresh looking decor and colours. Scandinavian designs lend themselves well to this room, being pleasing to the eye without being overwhelming. A classic design, also from Normann Copenhagen, the unusual rocking Ballo Toilet Brush Holder is now available in this modern Blue colourway:
And Perhaps Even In The Office…
Another Scandi homeware trend which is set to be a big hit this year is terazzo. This stylish Set Of 3 Grey Terrazzo inspired Tin Storage Boxes by Ferm Living is a great way to spruce up your office in more ways than one, keeping your stationery and essentials tidy while also being an on-trend update:
Delightful Dining Room Ideas
From the ceiling to the floor and on any walls or surfaces in between, there are many ways to spruce up a dining room. You may wish to add a statement dining room clock or decorative accessory to the wall, impressive ceiling lights above the table or smaller pieces of decor to a sideboard or dining room table, such as ornaments, vases and candles.
When it’s time to dine, tableware and serveware with original designs can make the experience even more enjoyable. Yvonne Ellen’s vintage inspired bone china tableware collection is ideal for hosting in style; this delightful 2 Tier Cake Stand will make an afternoon tea on a sunny day seem even sweeter:
Decorative Garden Lights
Although nature may already be doing the job for you, you may wish to enhance your garden with eye-catching finishing touches, especially when the sun goes down and all the vibrant spring colours are hidden until morning. Sure to be noticed and admired, Solar Starburst LED Outdoor Stake Lights will be a delightful decorative addition to a modern garden. Bring cheerful, sunny illumination after dark with one or several of these solar powered lights, each featuring 90 warm white LEDs which turn on automatically at dusk and turn off at dawn:
