To add a touch of spring to your home, choose a light and pastel colour palette to mimic the colours of blooming flowers and fresh greenery.

Adding soft shades of greens, blues, yellows, and pinks can create a lively and uplifting atmosphere. These can work particularly well if you have a neutral or white colour scheme, as they will help to enhance the feeling of brightness and openness in your space. 

Use scented candles, diffusers, or fresh flowers to bring the scents of spring indoors. Light and refreshing fragrances like citrus, lavender, or floral scents can enhance the atmosphere.

Display artwork that features nature-inspired themes, such as floral prints, landscapes, or abstract representations of spring. Another easy swap is to change the covers on your scatter cushions or swap in accessories like decorative vases, candles, or small sculptures that align with the light and lively mood of spring.
