Sometimes all that’s needed to jazz up a space is a pop of colour. If a new sofa is not on your shopping list, the next best thing is a colourful pillow. Whether it’s a quirky print, a bright spring hue, or a pretty pastel, there’s a perfect one out there for everyone.
3- Floral Decor
“Consider a floral piece – in the form of furniture or a painting – to bring nature in and evoke a sense of spring”
Any piece of art work can immediately make or break a room.

4- Light Breathable Linen
