After the gloom of the winter months, spring is the perfect time to add a splash of colour to your home. The colours of the moment according to Pantone are ‘Greenery’ a tangy yellow-green that represents ‘hopefulness and our connection to nature’ and ‘Pale Dogwood’ a light dusty pink “It’s obviously not a bright pink. It’s not fuchsia. It has a certain innocence, it’s unobtrusive, it’s very subtle. There’s kind of a healthy glow that’s attached to shades of pink like that.” Adding colour to your home doesn’t necessarily mean painting, you can add colour via pillows, curtains or throws, accessories are an easy way to introduce a new colour into your home.
There’s never been a better time to declutter and give your home a spring clean, before you bring anything new into your home it is essential to de-clutter, clear the decks and chuck out anything you no longer want or need.
