With the arrival of March comes a race towards Spring. Daffodils are out, lambs will soon be born, and at the end of the month, the clocks will go forward. I can almost feel an extra spring in my step just thinking about it. I’m not a fan of the dark, cold Winter months, which seemed to have dragged on for an age this year, and love the arrival of Spring.
The brighter, lighter days often make us look at our homes with fresh eyes. We see any dreary corners, smudged windows and tired looking accessories, and I, for one, am longing to go shopping for a few, fresh new pieces.
With that in mind, I thought it might be fun to share a list of great ways to liven up your home just in time for Spring. All of these ideas are quick and easy to acheive, and can be done on their own or as part of a group of suggestions, to give more impact. It’s not an exhaustive list, so if you have other ideas or ways that you bring some Spring freshness into your home, do let us know in the comments below.
