How to update your bedroom for spring

How to update your bedroom for spring

<p><strong>With spring already in the air, it's time to think about refreshing your home. One room in particular that needs some attention after a long winter is the one place where you can relax, the bedroom.</strong></p> <p>So why not swap your winter d&eacute;cor for fresh linens and patterns to <strong>make your bedroom feel inviting, light, open and carefree.</strong></p> <p>Here&rsquo;s how to capture that casual, chic spring vibe&hellip;</p> <p><strong>Add fun neutral choices</strong></p> <p>Bedrooms are the perfect space for a neutral colour palette &ndash; something calm and relaxing without it being boring.</p> <p>Choose neutral tones for large bedroom pieces like the bedding, carpeting, window treatments, ottomans and the like. Find interesting fabrics like bedcovers or ottoman slipcovers with African-inspired patterns.</p> <p>Take it up a notch and opt for linen with gold or metallic finishes for a fresh, unexpected and sophisticated look.</p> <p>If your bed doesn&rsquo;t have a headboard, you can make your own headboard, be it plain wood or an upholstered version.</p> <p><strong>Go for the uncluttered look</strong></p> <p>Use a transparent acrylic bedside table for that 'invisible', uncluttered look.</p> <p>Transparent acrylic is an unexpected choice for a bedroom, but it makes the space feel chic and fun, despite being mostly neutral.</p> <p><strong>Add textured floor coverings</strong></p> <p>If you&rsquo;re looking for floor coverings to complement your spring themed bedroom, why not try a woven flax rug. This type of rug adds plenty of texture and gives the room that coastal touch.</p> <p>Pick a neutral coloured rug &ndash; neutrals tend to tie in well with the colours in your curtains and fabrics.</p> <p><strong>Use interesting extra storage</strong></p> <p>Add extra storage like a pair of upholstered ottomans. These can also be used as extra seating or side tables.</p> <p>Choose ottomans that complement the bedroom's existing colour. For instance, you could opt for ottomans with a sandy elephant print fabric to complete the look.</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re handy with tools, making an upholstered storage ottoman for a bedroom shouldn't take you more than an hour to complete, and you can shop around for the best fabrics for the room setting.</p> <p><strong>Add colourful finishing touches</strong></p> <p>Introduce a splash of colour into a neutral bedroom using small accessories. Using colourful embellishments like cushions, vases, books with bold covers, lamps, etc. means you don&rsquo;t have to commit to big changes. It also allows you to take risks and experiment with various colour choices.</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re looking for unconventional spring colour choices, try a slightly bolder option like indigo accents. Pair patterned bed linen with indigo accessories like framing cross sections of blue agate. You can create a picture gallery of these above the bed.</p> <p>These sliced pieces create texture and dimension, and can be used to tie all the indigo accessories together.</p> <p>Alternatively, you can use rope or burlap wire accents. They&rsquo;re easy enough to make and are the perfect accent for a sunny bedroom.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Article from&nbsp;<a href="http://www.property24.com/articles/how-to-update-your-bedroom-for-spring/24663">property24</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
