1. Start outside

A beautiful spring wreath on the front door will make you smile every time you walk through it. Whether faux or real, my top tip with a wreath is to go bigger than you think you need. If going faux, you can always add in a few fresh pieces of foliage to give it a bit of extra depth!
2. Swap your cushions
A really quick, easy and inexpensive way to update your home for the seasons is through your cushions. Think pops of pink, or patterns that pull from nature - they will automatically give the room a lift.
3. Think layers
We all know that spring weather can be unpredictable, so when it comes to updating your bedding, I would suggest coming down to a summer tog level in your duvet (4.5 togs or below) but make sure you keep your blankets and bedspreads around for the time being so you can layer up if need be!

4. Spring Clean
Take the opportunity to clear your space a little visually. Have a little de-clutter and try and make sure your surfaces are as clear as possible.
5. Create a spring moment
Creating little moments in our home can bring so much joy! So find a little space, and find a few items that make you smile, a candle, a vase and a few books are perfect. Start with your larger item in situ and then build some smaller ones around it – it’s all about creating little groups of items rather than spreading them out – this will make sure your display doesn’t look cluttered.
6. Refresh your lighting
As the nights draw out, you may find you don’t need your “big” lights as much, so it’s a good time to make sure your lighting is layered – you will want some at varying levels and ideally be using warm white bulbs rather than cool white ones.

7. Refresh the paintwork
Now is the time to tackle those odd paint jobs – those scuffs on the wall or the paintwork that is chipped, just touch it up and you’ll feel so much better for it!
8. Open those windows
On those nice sunny days, get those windows open, even if only for an hour or so! It really will change the energy in your home, so lets get that air moving!
9. Find your spring scent
Now is the perfect time to switch up your diffusers and candles to a lighter scent! Find a light floral one that you love and make sure that you have a diffuser by the front door so you can smell it as soon as you walk into the house!
10. Fresh Flowers
Last, but definitely not least, bring some fresh flowers in! Not just formal bouquets, but a little vase full of spring flowers from the garden can transform how your space feels and brighten your day as well as your space.
