Spring is the best season to rejuvenate your décor and bring your home back to life. It is a great time to start fresh and rejuvenate your interior design completely.

We have outlined our favourite spring cleaning tips and recommendations below:

Flowers

Begin with placing fresh flowers from your garden or the local market in your home. You should choose colours that will brighten the room but will also correlate to the colour scheme. For example, if you have a white kitchen, you may choose a vibrant flower such as a red rose that is going to stand out.

Photos

There is a lot of fun to be had in printing photographs and displaying them in frames around your home. It is a great way to go down memory lane and relive amazing moments whilst adding a personal touch to your interior.

It incorporates your personality into each room and can be exciting and aesthetically pleasing to look at. A fun recommendation is to place frames on the wall alongside your staircase.

Cleaning

Spring cleaning can be a time consuming task. Try to make it as fun-filled as possible by listening to music or playing your favourite TV show in the background. You should dedicate a few hours to this task as it could take just minutes or an entire day . Or, if you’d rather relax and enjoy the day, you can always hire a cleaner instead!

Books

You can’t complete a spring clean without a clear out of your bookshelf. Bookshelves serve as a great focal point in a room and having a crisp book shelf can make a great difference to your home. Style the shelf with books that are different textures, colours and heights.

Rugs

Rugs can change the look and feel of your entire room, and spring may be the time to choose a new design. If you are ready for some variety you can opt for a multi-colored rug which will give your room a warm feel.

Alternatively, you can pick a more neutral colour such as white, black or grey that will blend in well but will need to be accessorised appropriately to look bright and inviting.

Plants

Spring is the perfect time to place a new plant in your home. There are plenty of low maintenance, indoor plants that will make your house feel more homely and make your room aesthetically pleasing. We recommend fiddle leaf fig, zz plants (zamioculcas zamiifolia), pothos, rubber plant or peace lilies.

Something Special

Finally, treat your home with something special this spring. It can be small and unique or it could be a large centrepiece. We recommend rejuvenating the feel and look of your home by purchasing either a new table cloth, curtains or cushions. Just make sure that it matches the surroundings!

  • When I was living in the Netherlands I always used to have flowers. They are too dear here and often not very fresh and also not the greatest idea when you have young children.


    • I lived in the Netherlands too for a 2 and a half years, and my house was always full of flowers. I really loved that! :-)



      • I have some beautiful fake flowers for the house – a gift from many years ago – they look like the real deal.


      • Some fake flowers are beautifully made indeed. I agree!!

    I had two peace lilies inside but the one in the hall had seen better days and I have only just replaced it with a Sansevieria.

  • I’d love to bring more flowers into the house, but they are too expensive to buy and I don’t have enough in the garden.
    I’ve organized my books this week and prepared a bag to bring to a second-hand bookshop.
    I’d love to paint some walls. They would freshen up the house for sure!!
