Rediscover every room in your home this Spring with our ideas for transforming any space into a relaxing haven.
By definition, a home should be a restorative sanctuary; a place to relax, host, and reflect, as well as a welcoming retreat you can’t wait to return to after a long day.
If you’ve lived in your home for several years and have been feeling disenchanted with your décor of late, we’re here to help – which is why the theme of our new Spring brochure (request your copy here) is falling back in love with your home, as well as exploring new ways to rejuvenate your space. Here are four of our favourites.
- Scent your space
The perfect new-season palette cleanser, fragrance is one of the easiest ways to instantly brighten your mood and lift the atmosphere of a room. Choose a signature scent for your entire home to make a statement – Spring, Lime & Bay and new Ocean Tide will complement every room – or choose a different fragrance for each part of the house. Try scattering tealights in the living room, a soothing candle for the bedroom, and a practical diffuser for the bathroom.
2. Create a reading nook
No longer just the preserve of Pinterest, reading nooks are a wonderful way to create a space within your home that feels truly ‘yours’ (that little ones will love, too). There are dozens of ways to make one, but you’ll achieve the best results in an alcove, a landing, or in the far corner of a room. Try placing a canopy over a beanbag, adding plump cushions and throws to a square pouffe, or simply piling old sofa cushions in a corner, ensuring there’s plenty of natural (or soft artificial) light to go around.
3. Organise your home office
Whether or not you work from home, an ‘office’ space is always a good idea – even if it’s just your kitchen table. Life’s less exciting tasks – bills, to-do lists, or dreaded tax returns – will seem much less arduous tackled in a serene setting, with neat storage, fresh flowers, and stylish stationery. Our new white lacquer collection is perfect for organising important papers, while our pin board is the chic way for the whole family to stay up-to-date with everyday happenings and events.
4. Host a dinner party
There’s nothing like delicious food and even better company to breathe life and laughter back into your home plus, imminent guests will encourage a spring-clean of your home. Keep the mood relaxed and effortlessly sophisticated with our versatile new kitchen collection – specifically, our Symons Bone China, with its exquisitely light feel and elegant finish. With hosting essentials taken care of, you can relax into the evening and revel in the beautiful space you have created.
