When the first flowers of the year bloom and the sun begins to warm the days, spring is not far away. Now is the time to think about a little makeover for your house or flat. We have a number of fresh ideas for bringing a spring feeling into your home.
Spring is a time when life becomes more colourful again. Freshen up your home with attention-grabbing colours – such as mustard yellow. Few other colours epitomise springtime and dispel the melancholy of winter as much as yellow – and best of all, strong yellow tones are currently trendy. As something of a countertrend, pastel shades are currently also “en vogue”: delicate rose, light pistachio turquoise or gentle lemon yellow. All reminiscent of ice cream flavours, it’s no surprise that our thoughts turn to springtime when we see them.
Bringing nature indoors
Glass vases add a light touch. Filled with twigs or flowers, they become harbingers of spring. Glass vases can also be used for planting bulbs such as hyacinths, creating an extravagant yet natural look. Continuing the urban gardening theme, it’s now the time of the year to be thinking about growing your own herbs or even vegetables such as tomatoes. With the new “Smart Garden” from Emsa – an indoor garden with LED lighting and water tank – you do not even need your own garden or balcony. Plants can be grown in the kitchen, living room or anywhere else you like.
Combining “back to nature” with a more leisurely pace of life, slow living continues to be a popular lifestyle trend this spring. There is a clear focus on sustainability. People are looking for high-quality, long-lasting materials with a small ecological footprint – often in combination with light or neutral colours. Adding a few pieces of eye-catching greenery will bring the freshness of spring into your home without overdoing the decoration.
The new delight in experimentation
When nature awakens from its winter nap, it’s time for spring cleaning. Time to retrieve the patio furniture from the shed, clean the windows, and maybe even repaint the walls. Alternatively, you can think about some new wallpaper. The new spring collections have a wealth of designs to choose from. From naturally muted or powdery earth tones right through to luxurious golden Art Deco motifs, “anything goes” seems to be the motto. The important thing is: wallpaper should underline the individual character of the room and its furnishings.
