Home Styling for Spring : Simple changes for big impact.

Home Styling for Spring : Simple changes for big impact.

Styling your home for spring is something that s lot of us do. I know I have – changed up the cushions in the living room, drooled over Pinterest home decor boards like they are chocolate filled tray bakes presented to me by Ryan Reynolds in a dubious state of undress and the such.

There are a few things that you can do though that really make a difference in any seasons, not just home styling for Spring.

Here are a few tips for the various rooms in your house and how to spruce them up a bit.

Home Styling for Spring : Simple changes for big impact.

Candles are the flowers of the lazy person world, which means they suit me perfectly. I am a huge lover of scented candles and they are ideal for adding a new least of life for somewhere like the bathroom. Please don’t think, mothers of the world, that you will be lighting them any time to relax in the bath – no no, these are purely for show. I have a natural stone vibe going on in my bedroom so these shades of brown coffee scented candles are lovely for that room, it’s all about a complimentary colour!

Coffee table books instead of ornaments:

You don’t have to be a genius to work out that most ornaments are breakable and styling your home for spring with such breakables probably isn’t ideal. I really love books and I’ve recently squired a few that are designed for the coffee table. The idea is that you leave them out as part of your decor, styling your home in the same way a lifestyle shoot in a glorious magazine would. I love these books here, they are:

It’s not just that it adds a less breakable touch to the house, but it’s lovely for adding a touch of class too.

Vintage storage boxes

Edie is starting to get more and more bits and bobs in her room now, just little trinkets and things that I don’t think she is old enough to treat respectfully. With vintage style storage boxes I can add a little touch of pretty to her room storage. I love this cream storage box because it will go with anything and I think it’s ideal for shoving bits I want out of sight, whilst I can top it with her prettiest toys and ornaments she can’t break!

What are your go to style tips?

    I wouldn’t be without storage boxes, with the amount of knick knack things all the children have, it saves me from constantly stubbing my toe on the little bits!

    Love the idea of using books as ornaments!! I definitely have enough books to make that a reality in my home!

  6. Avatar March 28, 2016 / 4:57 pm

    These are some great ideas. I love the candles. I rarely have candles in my room though because I don’t want to light them for fear of setting the entire room or myself on fire (I’m blind and very clumsy). Glad these are just for show.

    Great tips, and the pictures are beautiful! I love how they are realistic for people with children too!

    I know what you mean about candles I always buy a candle around Christmas time, this year I brought a huge Yankee one which was on sale and we are only a little way through but it doesnt seem right to burn it now!! Love the vintage storage box

    I like the look of the vintage storing boxes. I am in desperate need of some more anyway and these are fab!

    I love the idea of using books as ornaments, I once went to a B&B and the old Iron bed was up on books and it looked Fab – although I was slightly worried about bouncing around too much!

    I really love those vintage storage boxes! They are a lot nicer than the plastic ones you get. Makes them part of the decor rather than just storage. X

    • Harriet March 27, 2016 / 12:03 am

      Thanks Georgina – I think the coffee table books are a really great idea if you have kids that might break a favourite ornament that you don’t want out! H x

    Great tips! I’ve been trying to do a huge declutter in my house for ages now. My kids aren’t really kids anymore and I’m yearning for some changes. As a candlemaker, I love the candle tip of course πŸ™‚

    I love having candles around the home. I like making a dining table centre piece for each season x

    • Harriet March 27, 2016 / 12:06 am

      Me too – I usually have some on my window sills and light them up to scent the room on an evening! H x

    Great post. I must confess my home is so bare because my kids are only 2. They are constantly on the move.

      Thanks! Its hard with little ones isn’t it?! H x

    What some lovely ideas – I’m trying to play around with storage a bit more, we got some wicker baskets which have helped a lot and can be stacked! x

    • Harriet March 27, 2016 / 12:09 am

      I love wicker too – only issue is we have cats who think they were a gift for keening their claws!! Little buggers! H x

    I definitely need to get my house ready for Spring, we still have penguin and robin cushions on the sofa and Christmas candles on the fire place!

    • Harriet March 27, 2016 / 12:09 am

      Hahaha that sounds like a very standard home for a busy mama! I loved our Christmas cushions, but I am smitten with our new spring look H x

    Everything looks fab, so minimalist. I’m an awful hoarder I need to do a big clearout!!

    • Harriet March 27, 2016 / 12:10 am

      Thanks Kellie – I assure you it isn’t! Our house is so messy, my secret is in tidying a corner, taking a picture and then running away to post it before anyone catches me haha! H x

    I do like the idea of decorating with coffee table books instead of ornaments… even though they are hardly ever read by anyone lol

    • Harriet March 27, 2016 / 12:12 am

      That is so true Oliver but they look cute, and (shameless brag alert) one of those books has published three of my articles so it has pride of place and is offered to everyone to read haha! I am kidding I promise! H x

    Great little ideas to make a room more stylish. I bought a new coffee table this week, it is narrower than my previous coffee table and it’s the same colour as my floor so my living room looks so much bigger πŸ™‚

    • Harriet March 27, 2016 / 12:15 am

      Thanks Claire – you need some coffee tables books then πŸ˜‰ H x
