Add colour and style to your living space by introducing beautiful flowers. Spring is the perfect time to pick up a seasonal bouquet that suits your decorating scheme, or why not go for a walk in the local forest and pick your own wild flowers to create a rustic display.

2. Add patterned wallpaper

Don't hold back, go bold for spring by choosing a decorative wallpaper to add interest. Popular patterns for 2020 incude palm prints, oversized florals and jungle-themed designs. Whether you're creating a feature wall, papering the ceiling, or all four walls – a bold pattern will make a real style statement. 

3. Spring clean

Decluttering living spaces is important for creating a relaxing and wellness-centred home. Start by giving your room a deep clean and choosing a fragrance you love. Why not opt for Zoflora's 'Springtime' scent which has made a comeback this season. Tidy up your space by choosing stylish storage solutions to minimise clutter. 

4. Switch up your soft furnishings

An easy and affordable way to update your living room is to introduce cushions and throws in bright colours with spring-themed designs. Opt for lighter fabrics such as linen and cotton, and store away darker cushions in an airtight box to reintroduce them for autumn/winter. 

5. Focus on light

This is the season to say goodbye to dark and cosy interiors, and fling open doors and windows to let in the light. Consider opting for a sheer fabric at windows to inject your living space with a dreamy feel. Help bounce light around a room by decorating with a lighter paint shade, or hanging a stylish, oversized mirror on the wall.
