How to update your living room this spring

There are many exciting ways to update your living room this Spring. You can either go all out and redecorate the whole room or you can add accessories with different textures and colours to create a new look and ambience.  As a mum of two children under three, with one learning how to crawl, I find it vital to have an area of soft flooring. I was gifted the Royal Morocco Dove Grey rug, which is hypoallergenic and super easy to clean.  This rug alone has made such a difference to our family life. I know you’re probably thinking, “Really?! A rug?’ but yes it really has! Sofia, my two year old actually takes day time naps on it and Matthew my seven month old spends hours playing and rolling around which is really nice.

Here are my top three ways of updating your living room for Spring:

  • Rugs – Adds style, comfort and texture to a room.
  • Cushions – Adds colour, texture and style to a room / sofa. Cushions are a relatively cheap way of changing your room from season to season. It’s also far easier implementing the latest trend into your home with something more affordable than a sofa.
  • Wall Art – Gallery walls / Wall art is super fun to create and make a stunning focal point in any room.

Trends come and go. Many fashion trends that are implemented into interiors such as colours, prints and different styles, change from season to season. A design element, in particular, that I find to be timeless, is a gallery wall. The beauty about this design element is that it is so versatile it can be a feature in any room of the house and can be created in a style which suits you. Gallery walls can be found in residential design as well as commercial design. It provides many functions. The most appealing gallery walls are ones which combine a variety of art sizes and frame styles. A way in which this would work beautifully is by choosing a colour scheme or art style so even if the frames are different sizes and styles they will still compliment each other. Ultimately, your wall should represent you, your style and personality. If using different sized frames, begin with the larger ones and place smaller ones around it. The frame style is a matter of personal preference, however, it should compliment the art it is framing. The best place to hang your art is at eye-level.

Go and get styling! P.s. Happy Easter!
