After being shut inside for four or five months, spring is here and it’s time to feel rejuvenated.  What better way to feel the freshness of a bright new season that to refresh your furniture.  Karen Broderick trend watch expert at Harveys the Furniture Store gives you her top 5 inexpensive and simple ways to bring spring in to your home.

  1. Take your curtains or blinds down and give them a wash.  Replace them with lightweight voiles to let the light in through freshly washed windows.
  2. Bring your garden indoors and cut some fresh flowers and put them in a beautiful vase that you place centre stage of your living room and hang wind chimes in front of windows and drift away as they tinkle in the spring breeze.
  3. Buy accent pieces in bright vibrant colours - a statement chair, lamp or throw can easily update your current furniture.  Place them in front of a window and be reminded that spring is on its way every time you sit in it.
  4. Don’t underestimate the power of cushions – quick to buy and easy to place, they can make a simple scheme look completely different from one season to the next.
  5. Put a new table cloth or place mats centre of your dining room to add freshness.
