Spring tips from The Home Company

As the outdoors blossoms and become more colourful so should your home.

Skipton’s long established furniture and furnishings store, The Home Company, has a few tips for sprucing up your interior this spring.

Michelle Swinscoe, the lifestyle store’s assistant manager said: “We love this time of year. As soon as the daffodils are out we know spring is in the air and it’s time to think about revitalising the home with a range of vibrant colours.”

Here are Michelle’s tips to help ‘make it happen’.

  • Always have a budget in mind. It can be easy to get carried away, remember it’s only a spring refresh not a complete refurbishment.
  • Start with a clear-out to de-clutter your home. Create space by removing any unwanted items from shelves and other surfaces. Just add this season’s flowers, they are always beautiful this time of year.
  • Try a new lick of paint and change the colour of your walls and trimmings.  Go for neutral walls with a fresh coat of white on woodwork. This will make the room look fresh and bright.
  •  Simple accessories can transform a drab living space into dazzling. So pack away dark cushions and throws and go for vivacious shades of lime green, bright fuchsia, or botanical patterns and jungle prints.
  • Refresh wall decorations. Try more colourful artwork featuring spring floral scenes or bright colourful abstracts. Reflect light back into the room using a beautiful ceramic table lamp with a trendy chrome finish and taffeta shade. Or floor lamps in sparkling metals.

Said Michelle: “Spring is the perfect time to try out bright floral designs which are very popular right now.  If floral isn’t your thing, try a softer palette such as duck egg blue, greys and greens.”
