The step into spring is a brilliant time. The daylight spans on for a bit longer every day, the breeze begins to feel warmer as it passes you and everybody seems to be in so much more of an unexplained cheery mood – maybe it’s the sun that does it. It’s a time for new beginnings everywhere; traditionally spring is the season of new birth, with flowers popping their heads out to say hello and baby birds hatching to make their way into the world.
Spring colors are associated with being light, and this is the way to go to get your bedroom feeling as fresh as it should. Lighter colors give the impression that there is more room to work with within a set space, and it will leave you feeling clearer and more focused on what you need to do in your day when you wake up to a room that is full of light energy. Choosing a pastel shade can keep you well on theme; think powder blue, lavender and mint for the classics that never fade out of style, or a dove grey for true forward style.
The more light you can get into your bedroom, the better. You can do this in a variety of different ways, whether it’s through changing your curtains/blinds for lighters ones or opening them more often, bringing in floor lamps or even repainting. The cheapest and best way to completely lighten a room is to change the bedding. If you have a dark duvet cover on to begin with, then this will drag the room down and make it look cosy rather than fresh. Take a look at spring duvet sets such as the Vaulia Home Collection, and find one that will suit your style and how you want your finished room to look.
Bring the outside in! If you aren’t keen on having fresh flowers in your bedroom, there are some amazing fake replicas which are the way to go to avoid hayfever (allergy) mishaps. Plants are also a sturdy addition to any room; if you aren’t too fussed at watering them every day, consider getting one that requires low attention such as a succulent or even an air plant which barely requires any watering at all.
Sit back and think about all of the things that are associated with spring. Bunting, flowers, greenery – all things that can definitely be incorporated into your bedroom … especially the bunting. You can easily DIY your own if you’re a dab-hand with a sewing machine, or look online on sites like Etsy or eBay to search for something that tickles your fancy. It’s so easy to find one to match up to whatever scheme or theme you have planned, and if you vary the fabric used (for example, gingham and sheer fabric), you’re giving yourself leeway to add more bits and bobs to your bedroom without them looking a touch out of place.
