Spring is in the air. There’s nothing like warmer temps and the prospect of al fresco living to lift the atmosphere at home. Let’s get in the mood early and prepare for the upcoming change of season with a revamp that is as easy as it will be life-changing.

Time to say goodbye to the heavier cushions and knitted throws that kept us cosy over the coldest months. If the linen cupboard is tight for space, invest in light woven baskets or cabinetry that allows for elegant, yet ample storage. Think rattan buffet, timber cabinet or a bookcase with space for baskets and boxes.

Introduce lighter fabrics such as cotton or linen, and cushions that are light and bright. Swap bed linen for neutrals and lift the ambience with crisp, calm and cool shades for the warmer nights ahead.

Bringing in an entire new gallery of art may be out of the question, but consider switching your feature pieces for vibrant – or coastal – tones that inject a summer feel.

If you’re not already enjoying outdoor dining or reclining, consider adding to or updating your outdoor settings. Make the balcony or entertaining area an extension of the summery retreat you’ve created inside with comfort and style a priority.

Ensure seating – or cushions – remain on-trend and plush; and think about adding to the mix with a timber lounge or daybed. Top it off with an outdoor rug and lighting that illuminates your inner spring vibe – and adds a touch of magic to the space.
