Living Room Refresh

With spring just over a month away, there's no better time for a living room refresh. I love that a new season brings a whole host of new design ideas and colour palettes to explore. Whether you're looking to spend a little or a lot on updating your living room for the season ahead, I've shared a few tips, ideas and products to get you started...

Swap your cushion covers and throws
An easy (and relatively inexpensive) way to refresh your living room is to swap your old cushion covers and throws for new ones! Say bye bye to your warm, winter fabrics and hello to lighter cotton and linen offerings. George has some really gorgeous Modern Country cushions - all under £10!

Bring the outdoors inside
Spring is a time where plants and flowers flourish, so why not add a few to your living room? Plants can help to create a more positive living space and there are so many beautiful ones to choose from. But if like me you're not the best at keeping them alive, a cactus or succulent may make a better choice! Or if you're really, really bad at looking after plants, artificial alternatives can help you achieve the look of bringing the outdoors inside, without actually doing it. These potted succulents from Wilko look so realistic and cost just £4 each.

Create a new focal point
Key rooms, like your living room, should have a focal point but this doesn't mean you can't swap or update it from time to time. Refreshing key pieces of furniture like your sofa can give your living room a whole new look. Of course, buying a new sofa is a big deal, so it's worth doing your research to make sure you choose a good investment piece! For me, it's important to find a sofa that is both stylish and comfortable. I've had sofas in the past that look great but aren't cosy and for a family living room that's just no good. Looking at Fishpools, there's a fantastic range of fabric sofas which offer both comfort and style. The Poppy Sofa featured above is particularly dreamy!

Update your ornaments
If you're on a tight budget but still want to refresh your living room for spring, a great way to do it is with new ornaments. A new vase for your mantel piece or tray for your coffee table can make a real difference - it's all about the detail. I love H&M for home accessories. They're always on-trend and reasonably priced. Take a look at the gorgeous leaf plate and pink stoneware pot I featured above for inspiration.

Find your spring signature scent
Finish off your living room refresh by finding a new scent for the season. After months of winter scents with notes of cinnamon, orange and pine, it's time to swap your candles and diffusers for something a little lighter and more refreshing for springtime. I really rate Marks & Spencer for their home fragrances. They're cruelty-free and what's more, cost just a fraction of the high end candle brands' offerings. Take a look at the set of 4 Multi Fragrance Diffusers, which have caught my eye - they're the perfect spring scents!

How will you be refreshing your living room this spring?
