With the cooler months leaving, it's not just our clothing choices that long for a spring refresh: our homes do, too. It's time to put away the heavy fabrics and blackout curtains as we've got three easy ways to transform your home for spring.
1. Swap out heavy curtains for light linen
One major property of linen is that it possesses high breathability levels and doesn't hold onto heat or air. This is a great advantage for the warmer months throughout spring, when homeowners will want to keep houses as cool as possible. Linen not only keeps heat out, it's also a light and bright fabric that brings pleasantness and luminosity to any space. Our Sierra linen features a subtle striping effect and has the perfect amount of sheerness for spring curtains in a living space.

2. Create an indoor plant paradise
Inject life and colour into your living spaces by introducing bright flowers and plants. This is an extremely effortless and low maintenance way to say goodbye winter, hello spring. Get your own piece of paradise in the form of a hibiscus plant. These tropical blooms grow freely and beautifully from late spring through to the autumn months, creating an exotic oasis in your very own home. The reds, pinks and oranges work well with our Leno Honey Gold upholstery fabric – a textured linen blend, which can be used for cushions or a statement armchair.
3. Bring in brighter colours
Winter brings colour connotations of deep jewel tones in rich reds and forest greens but when the warmer weather appears, this darker colour scheme needs switching out for sun-inspired and brighter shades. Spring is the season where colourful blooms and lighter days appear outdoors, so it's only fair to bring this indoors too. Think pastel colour pops such as pale lavenders, duck-egg blues and blush, salmon-oranges.
This can be done through colourful accessories. Introducing vases, candles, books or ornaments into any space gives an instant injection of fun and brightness, and is a cheap alternative to switching out your current furniture. These colourful additions work well with neutral fabrics such as our woven upholstery fabric Marni, in shades Beaver and Sesame.
