4 Ways To Makeover Your Gaff For Spring

Whether you're renting or you've just bought your first home, we know how to give your place a fresh face for spring.

Fake it with flowers

Mason Jar Herbs

No, we don’t mean just picking up a €2 bunch from Tesco and sticking them in a vase. This season it’s all about succulents: Dot a few in pots around your kitchen and bathroom for a super fresh feel. Not your thing? Why not fix some faux flowers to the wall, add hanging plants or (our fave) grow herbs in mason jars on your window sill? They’re inexpensive, and best of all you’ll never be short on thyme for your next roast. #winning.

Add wall art

DIY Wall art

Walls looking a little bare? Have a hoke around your local charity store for vintage paintings or consider getting that cute drawing your niece did at nursery put onto canvas. Wall art creates a focal point – great if you want to detract from those blue tack marks you’ve left all over the paintwork.

Upcycle old furniture

Furnishings in need of a face lift? You’ll be surprised what you can do with a lick of paint and some fabric. We love Etsy for stocking up on supplies and this Tumblr for inspo.

Update your colour palette

Spring colours interiors

You don’t need to grab paint and paint brush to get with SS16’s freshest hues. You can inject a little extra colour with rugs, lampshades, cushions and curtains too. Better yet, if you’re renting and don’t fancy getting in trouble with your landlord, buy a few sheets of removable wallpaper in your fave-o colours and create a feature wall. Easy.
