We are saying goodbye to Winter (finally!) and we are about to welcome Spring. It’s time to change the doonas, pack away all those chunky knit throws and start to open up those windows again! Who doesn’t love any excuse to change up their décor?! (Or am I the only one?).
Spring is such a beautiful and invigorating time of year, it’s a season of fresh starts and new birth…sounding very dramatic aren’t I? Ill skip to the point! We have scoured the world of interior design (Thanks, Pinterest!) and spent many hours of extensive research (Thanks, Google ;)) to provide you with our best three tips for what’s hot for this Spring!
1. GET RAW AND DIRTY
We are talking dirty, muted colours and raw textures. What?! Where did you think we were going with that? Dirty colours (dusty pinks, powder blues, mustard yellow) are a great way to add some softness and subtle colour into your home without having to go over the top. Team them with some stripped back, natural and raw textures. Think naked (there we go again) untreated woods, concrete, marble, brass and copper.

2. BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Indoor plants and gorgeous bouquets of native flowers are a perfect and simple way to take your interior to the next level. They bring life and natural colour to a room and not to mention a fresh and beautiful aroma. And if you haven’t quite got a green thumb, then don’t be afraid to go artificial- there are some really good quality artificial plants available to still get that lush green look. There are endless options to pot and display them. Think macramé hangers, seagrass baskets, beautiful vases… Once you start adding some gorgeous flora to your home, it is hard to go back! What better way to welcome the new season then by bringing a little piece of Spring inside!?

3. POPS OF BLUE
Blue has been neglected for some time now in the interior design world but it about to make a big comeback. Blue is such a beautiful, bold statement colour and contrasts perfectly to the traditional Nordic monochromatic tones and natural woods. You don’t need to add a lot of it to get the right effect. Use simple things like cushions and art to get the look.
