How to transform your home for spring
Warmer days, lighter evenings, and flowers popping up everywhere mean only one thing – spring is here! Not only is it the perfect time to have a deep spring clean, but it is the perfect season to give your home a little update. The good news is that it’s easier than ever to give your space a fresh new look! Read on to discover our spring decorating ideas and find out how you can bring some springtime style into your home.
Bring the Outdoors in with fresh flowers
We could all use a mood booster from time to time, so bring lots of flowers into your home! Both freshly cut flowers and dried arrangements look stunning and are a quick and easy way to brighten up your home. For a welcoming entryway, why not position lots of little bunches of wildflowers in our rustic Emeli vase in green terracotta? Its organic shape is inspired by the female form and is the perfect item to welcome a little Mother Nature into your home.
For calming bedrooms or bathrooms in need of some freshening up, we recommend leafy green plants or flowers in complementary pastel tones. Opt for matching vases like the Gea ceramic range to add pops of colour to a muted palette. Featuring a rough clay surface and inspired by the small Italian volcanic island of Ischia, these vases are available in two sizes and currently come in yellow, blue, ivory, red, pink, violet and black.
If you are lucky enough to have a garden filled with spring flowers, pick a selection of your favourites and place them in the Sasefine vase. Showcasing a delicate Snowdrop pattern, this vase is perfect for presenting everything your garden has to offer and looks wonderful in a neutral bedroom.
Update Your Gallery Wall
Another way to bring some fresh colour and inspiration into your home is to switch up your wall art. Bold colours, interesting patterns and unusual textures are a great way to add interest to a blank space. Consider creating a springtime themed display, and hang prints in fresh colours above some of your favourite flowers to create a warm, welcoming space for your guests.
The key to a great gallery wall is mixing and matching. Opt for prints in different sizes and colours and include family photos to break things up a little. We love the boldness of Maxwell Fine’s ‘Sunsets and Magic’ print, which features two contrasting tones of red and pink. Perfect as the centrepiece for any wall, its message is sure to bring a smile to your face every time you walk past.
The beauty of a gallery wall is that you can change it around whenever you like. Why not include framed pressed flowers and move pieces around as the seasons change? And if you have a sideboard or desk, why not go for a leaning print? Not only will you be able to swap it out with ease, but you also won’t have to contend with the words ‘left a little!’

A Spring Season Dining Table
A simple way to modify your home in time for spring is to focus your attention on the centre of the home – the dining table. Whether you have dinner together as a family every night or primarily use it to entertain, your dining table should be one of the central focuses of any seasonal renovation.
To avoid a cluttered appearance and mismatched items, start by deciding on a colour scheme or theme. Lighter colours such as pastel greens, lilacs, pinks, baby blues and yellows are the perfect base colours for springtime, so choose one or two and build your setting around them.
Bringing in vases of flowers and greenery is the perfect way to welcome in the new season, and we recommend placing them down the length of the table with candles displayed in the Carola recycled wood candle holders for a simple but pretty centrepiece.
When it comes to dining, you will want to switch out darker, more formal crockery for lighter, delicate tableware. The Bea range from Bloomingville features a delicate floral motif and is crafted from beautiful stoneware in natural colours. The range includes a <a "color: #028eaa" href="https://www.betikoliving.com/bea-butter-dome-cream-stoneware.html" target="_blank">butter dome, <a "color: #028eaa" href="https://www.betikoliving.com/bea-milk-jug-cream-stoneware.html" target="_blank">milk jug, <a "color: #028eaa" href="https://www.betikoliving.com/bea-plate-cream-stoneware.html" target="_blank">plate and <a "color: #028eaa" href="https://www.betikoliving.com/bea-soup-plate-cream-stoneware.html" target="_blank">soup plate and is the perfect addition to any springtime table, especially when dining al fresco!
And don’t forget the little details! Pretty <a "color: #028eaa" href="https://www.betikoliving.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=napkins"> napkins with floral motifs will add the finishing touch to any dinner party. Try the Gigi paper napkins in rose dust for a springtime birthday party.
Swap Out Your Cushions
Updating your home for spring shouldn’t be stressful, and there is no need to redecorate your entire home every few months. Instead, change little things around the house for an instant update of spring decor ideas that won’t take up too much of your time. Changing the cushions on your sofa or bed, for example, is an easy way to introduce softer colours and can really transform a room.
Scatter the Wreyland cushions by William Yeoward in various hues across your sofa and watch as your living room or snug takes on a completely new look! Featuring a botanical pattern with beautiful decorative detail and available in a range of soft spring colours, including sage, coral and a beautiful peacock blue, there is a shade for every colour scheme.
For a calming bedroom, we recommend the Anella fringed cushion in elderberry. Featuring a soft lilac shade and gorgeous detailing, this cushion works well with fresh white bedding and complements the textured Punch Needle cushion cover from Botanical Boys.
Add scented tea lights and place them in the Dalia Votive to really bring out the depth of the lavender colour scheme. You’ll find yourself soothed and rested in no time!
Make Changes to your outdoor space
When it comes to refreshing your home, it is natural to want to update the outside too. Switch up the little details like your planters and cushions to create a cosy outdoor space
Place our Jillia flower pots in terracotta on an outdoor table filled with spring flowers like pansies or violas. Outdoor cushions can instantly update garden furniture in a patio space with colour and texture adding style and comfort to outdoor entertaining space in warmer weather.
The warm citrus shades of the Nariz, Leona and Chiquito Cushions will brighten up any garden. Or choose the Denim and Jade shades if you prefer cool blues. Another easy way to update the exterior of your home in time for spring is to swap out your boring old doormat for a fun, colourful option. Our Astley Coir Mat features a stunning countryside silhouette print and is a fun way to greet your guests as they arrive. Or, if you prefer a retro design, the floral design from Astley is a colourful and simple alternative.
So, there you have it! There are so many ways to get your home ready with a speedy spring makeover without spending days decorating and making big changes. Just a few simple switches can take your home from dark and wintery to light, fresh and ready for the new season.
