With Spring in the air and the days slowly but surely getting longer, there’s never been a better time to breathe new life into your living space. Refreshing your decor and bringing the brightness of the new season into your interiors doesn’t have to blast a hole in your budget! Read on for our favourite, budget-friendly ways to brighten up your home and add a much needed pop of colour for the warmer days ahead. 
1. Mirrors

A favourite interiors hack amongst designers, mirrors are a clever way to brighten up and enhance your living space. Not only are they a beautiful design feature in their own right, they also bounce and reflect light, making your room feel brighter and appear larger. For maximum effect, position your mirror close to a light source or natural light from a window and watch your space expand and flourish.

2. Statement Rugs

Colourful statement rugs are a simple but charismatic way to update your interiors and provide maximum impact. With multiple different colours and designs to choose from, you can opt for a rug that will complement your existing decor or go bold and choose one to be the main point of interest in the room. Either way, a statement rug is sure to add a whole new layer of personality to your space.

4. Plants

Not only are houseplants a must have interior trend for 2022, they also add a pop of colour and texture by bringing the outdoors into your interiors. Filling your home with foliage will bring a much-needed freshness to your space as we head into the brighter months. As well as creating a beautiful aesthetic, many plants are also natural air purifiers, working to clean and detoxify your home.
