There’s nothing better than waking up after months of cold dark winter mornings and realising that spring is finally here. If you normally celebrate the arrival of the new season with a spring clean, why not go one step further?

6 Springtime Makeover Tips

Breathe new life into your bedroom with a spring makeover – here are our top tips to show you how:

  1. SAY HELLO TO SPRING
    With longer days and lighter evenings comes a more optimistic, light-hearted mood. Create a fun spring atmosphere in your bedroom with playful signs, like this 'hello' sign from downtothewoods.com. The mint green colour will brighten up any wall and will definitely brighten your mood. 6 Springtime Makeover Tips
  2. MELLOW YELLOW
    Add warmth and freshness to your room with accents of yellow – the colour of sunshine, fluffy chicks and daffodils. These patterned cushions from Habitat feature a modern, graphic design on a bright yellow background – throw a couple on your bed for a splash of colour. 6 Springtime Makeover Tips
  3. WALKING ON SUNSHINE
    Rugs are a quick way of adding colour and comfort to your bedroom. This yellow flat-woven rug from Ikea has a simple, contemporary design and the cheerful colour will make your room full of sunshine, even when there's spring showers outside. 6 Springtime Makeover Tips
  4. FLOWERBED
    There's a reason the floral trend comes back every spring – flowers feel fresh and remind us of the great outdoors and of gardens coming to life after the bleak winter. Swap your heavy winter bedding for this beautiful Botanical Print bed linen from Zara Home – the colourful flowers on crisp white will make you feel as if you're sleeping in a wild flower meadow. 6 Springtime Makeover Tips
  5. FLORAL MURAL
    Continue the floral theme with a pretty painting or wallpaper. This Pink Floral Flow wall mural from Photowall would look beautiful behind your bed; alternatively you can buy the print as a canvas if you don't want to cover an entire wall. The soft pink of the flowers and the white background will make your room feel airy and ‘spring like’. 6 Springtime Makeover Tips
  6. SPRING BOUQUET
    Floral bedspreads and wall murals are fantastic, but don't forget to decorate your room with actual flowers! If there are any flower markets near you, it's worth getting up at the crack of dawn to snap up bunches for next to nothing. Once you get home, put them in upcycled glass bottles (do it yourself by washing the labels off with hot water) for a shabby chic look. 6 Springtime Makeover Tips
