86920HNow is the time for transformation.  The green buds and colourful blooms outdoors provide great inspiration for reviving your indoor space. It’s time to shake off the winter chill, put away the heavy fabrics and dark colours and revitalize your décor with a lighter fresher look. Here are some tips for your spring refresh:

Small changes can go a long way.

Swapping out cushions and throws provide an instant update. Put away the wool blankets and opt for lighter fabrics in bright cheerful colours. A tired sofa can also be given a facelift with a fresh slip cover. Carry these colours throughout with additional accessories such as small vases and pretty bowls on mantels and side tables. Even bringing in new colourful artwork can make a big difference.

Ready for paint?

Nothing freshens up a room like a new coat of paint. It’s easy and affordable and makes the greatest impact.  You can’t go wrong with a clean and crisp shade of white which provides a blank canvas to highlight your artwork and colourful accessories. If you are a little more adventurous, add some colour to your walls. Some spring colours are surprisingly versatile such as soft green, blue and peach shades which can be quite neutral. If you are really bold, try an accent wall in a bright floral shade of yellow or orange.

Bring the outdoors in.

Nothing brightens up a space like fresh cut flowers. You can easily incorporate floral patterns in many fabrics such as cushions, rugs, throws and even wallpaper. Changing your drapery to lighter sheer fabrics lets in the sunlight and allows you to see the greener outdoors.

Upgrade electronics.

With a lighter look, bulky electronics can be quite an eyesore. You want every piece in the room to fit in seamlessly. Rather than the big old television, look for a thinner sleek design with advanced 4K technology that delivers rich colours.  Images that are truer to life and more vibrant will make sure that the showers outdoors are no match for bright images on the screen. Look for features such as LG’s True Black Panel to help minimize reflections and enhance contrast ratio, so you can see clear images on those bright spring days.
