Spring into Wellness

Hello and welcome to Abode. This week our inspiration blog features three ways to update your home decor with one focus in mind - to relax. By putting wellbeing at the centre of your design choices, even the biggest home decorating projects won't feel overwhelming.

Work from the Outside, In

At First 4 Blinds, we love this deep shade of green - the colour of revival. It's an ideal base colour for larger walls as seen in the image above because it pairs so well with other colours. By focusing on the wellbeing of your home working from the outside in, you can resolve any issues you've been waiting for better weather to fix. And then a fresh coat of paint in a soothing yet stylish colour can really revive your home for Spring.

Add lots of Optimistic Details

We love the combination of the rustic wooden decor with the bright spring flowers. Adding textures and accessories that make you feel happy and content is a great way to promote overall wellbeing. March is the perfect month to bring fresh flowers and fragrance into your home, but if you would prefer something more permanent, artificial flowers are now an incredibly realistic alternative. For a fresh floral inspired scent, invest in some high-quality essential oils to bring an extra dose of comfort and energy into the new season.

Keep things Calm and Collected

Last week we wrote a post dedicated to tidying up, so if you've already organised and de-cluttered your home, now you can focus on refreshing your textiles. We really like the way the neutral blankets accentuate the light wooden blinds and furnishings.

We hope you have enjoyed our article today. If you would like any advice on decorating your home, please feel free to get in touch with our friendly team.

See you Soon!
