8 ways to update your home this Spring

It’s time to store your doona, stash away your hot water bottle and leave your ugg boots for next winter. Spring has sprung and what better way to welcome the new season than to update your home?

Here are some of the hottest interiors trends of the year, just for some inspiration.

Make an entrance

If you’re in the mood for a bigger project, statement entrances are quite popular right now, whether it’s a bold painted door or an interesting archways.

Tickled pink

Millennial pink has been one of the hottest colours for the past year and now, the hue is stepping it up with a gorgeous soft blush palette, according to the Dulux Colour Forecast for 2018.

Use a variety of different textures to introduce it to your home, mixing fabrics, patterns and weaves. If you’re not yet ready to commit to painting the walls of your home pink, opt for cushions, artwork or throws to lift your space.

Return to nature

Another prediction from the Dulux Colour Forecast is the rising popularity of “earthy neutrals, rich greens and spicy notes of cinnamon and sienna”, the perfect way to introduce calm into your home.

Look for soft, organic shapes, raw timber furniture, handmade cushions or natural bed linens to get the look.

Bold coloured sofas

This is definitely not a trend for the faint hearted, but if it’s done well, a statement sofa can give your home a focal point and add colour to your home. Think blue, pink or maybe even green.


The classic combination of black and white is making a comeback in homes this season, whether you want to create some geometric drama in your living room or you’re on the hunt for a Parisian chic look in your home.

Indoor plants

Bringing the outdoors into your home has been on the rise in the last few years and this season, it’s definitely still on our radar. It’s a wonderful way to bring some tranquillity into any space. The good news is that you don’t even need to be a green thumb to enjoy an indoor garden. Many indoor plants require little maintenance, such as peace lilies, palms and succulents, but if all else fails, faux greenery still works, too.

Pendant lighting

An easy and affordable way to create a statement in your home, the perfect pendant light can be the finishing touch to a room. Clustered pendant lights are particularly striking.

Make sure you consider the size of the room your pendant light will feature in – if your pendant is too small, it will look insignificant and if it’s too big, it will overwhelm the space.

Spring clean

It’s time to brush away the cobwebs and declutter to make way for the new season.  Need a hand? Enter our spring clean competition, and you could win one of 30 five-hour professional spring cleans we’re giving away each week.
