As much as there is a lot going on right now I am trying to remain positive and reflect that through my posts too! Plus I want there to be some normality and I LOVE spring so want to talk about it.
Why I love Spring?
Spring has this beautiful aura of light mornings, the flowers blooming and coming alive and the days feeling more wonderful. After dark and gloomy winter mornings it just feels a lot better.
I love plants and flowers and just seeing them come alive is the most beautiful thing. Almost as lovely as Autumn tree’s (but not quite seeing as Autumn is my favourite).
Therefore, I want to give you
5 ways to add spring into your life!
- Add colour
I don’t know if it is just me but I love bringing out the colour during spring. I have colour themes in my head for throughout the year (greens, reds, and yellows for autumn etc). During spring time I love bright/light colours like pinks, yellows, blues. I just think that adding a bit of colour just puts me in a better mood (anyone else or just me?).
Also I think adding the colour throughout the house/flat wherever you live will help too. For example, some bright coloured pillows for the sofa, bright bedding, prints for the walls or even bright coloured candles.
However, you could also use some calmer colours like whites, light greys etc if you want a more plain effect. This would also be great for a spring theme in your home.
Now I know I love flowers anytime of the year but around springtime when all the flowers outside start to bloom, and the beautiful selections in the flower shops I just love it. Nothing can beat the springtime flowers that brighten up your home, but also infuses a sense of life into it. You can bring the outdoors indoors (which I think is truly important even more so right now).
Of course you can also purchase some fake flowers which will last forever! I think there are a lot of small businesses that you can support at the moment as well if you look around, so that is an idea.
3. Spring Clean
I know this is not exactly “bringing spring into your life” but I could not have a list without talking about this one. I think it is so refreshing and good for the soul to just have a clear out and clean everything. Of course assign different tasks for different days to manage the load, but honestly it just makes me feel so much better. Plus it is really good for my mental health when I am in a clean space.
4. Fresh scent
As weird as this sounds I think adding those scents around the home really does make a difference. Also lighting candles which just adds a cosy relaxing feel to your home. You can get some amazing spring scents which are perfect for this time of year.
I think as well as changing colours and having a spring clean, changing the layout or just adding in accessories will bring a room together. Also it will make you feel like you have a new space (without spending any money). This could literally mean changing around the furniture, moving a coffee table, utilising a space that you never knew you had before etc. Have a bit of fun and just play around and see what changes you can make to your space. Spring can be inspirational.
