We all get a little bored of our home interior from time to time, so now is the best time for a refresh before the warmer summer months. We have put together 3 easy ways to refresh your home this month.
If you are like me, my style tends to change every few years so i love switching things up and moving things around to create a new look. I don't through anything away, i keep pieces in storage (and forget about them!) and then when i revisit them a few months/years later i often reintroduce them into my home.
So here are a few tips on how to refresh your home and create a new look by moving things around and swapping out items that don't bring you joy.
Tip #1 - Stock up on cushions
Have you had the same cushions from when you first bought your sofa?
Changing your cushions is a really easy and effective way to change the look and feel of a room. If you want to introduce a new colour then starting with cushions is a great base. Opt for a neutral selection and introduce colour through the use of small lumbar cushions. Our Prestbury Weave Cushion is great for changing the look. It features a beautiful green textured weave on one side and a natural raw linen on the reverse side. This gives you two different options depending on the season.
Remember your garden also counts as a living space so introduce some cushions outside to make it a really comfy space during the summer months.
Don't throw any cushions away, keep them in storage so that you can mix them up throughout the year!
Tip #2 - Style your dining area
Your dining table can become a dumping ground when it's not in use. Add some interest to this space by styling it with a Linen Table Runner, terracotta pots filled with plants and beautiful individual place settings.
You don't have to have your whole dining table perfectly set up like it would be in a hotel. It's not practical for a busy home however you can effortlessly style it with just a few pieces.
Add some texture and greenery by taking some cuttings from your garden and simply place them in a vase or several smaller bud vases.

Tip #3 - Create a cosy corner for your pets
Start by having a big deep clean of your boot room and move things around to create a slightly different look. Keep one corner free for the perfect space for your four legged friend to call home.
Recycle their old muddy bed and introduce a wicker pet basket that compliments your home interior. If you have a specific spot built into your boot room then opting for a rectangular wicker pet basket ensures a great fit.
If you have a smaller boot room then an oval wicker pet basket is a better option with its rounded corners.
