With Spring well underway it’s not just the birds who are busy tending to their nests. Many of us find this the perfect time of year to sort through unwanted clutter, spruce up our homes and adjust accessories to fit warmer weather and better light. Take advantage of this energy that’s all about freshness, letting in sunshine and bringing Nature indoors by giving your interior a Spring refresh. We’ve got three simple ways you can use natural linen textiles to brighten up your home. Get summer-ready, LinenMe style!
How to refresh your interior using linen textiles for Spring
Switch up your curtains:
As curtains take up a fair amount of space – especially when drawn shut – they can really alter the feel of a room. In Winter, opt for cosy, dark tones that create a sense of warmth and cocooning. For Spring you can change the heavier drapes for lighter linen curtains in cool neutrals or fresh pastels. Linen curtains keep those evening chills at bay whilst also allowing rooms to breathe in hotter weather. For a romantic, relaxed look opt for tie fixture curtains, and if you want something more formal choose grommet closing curtains.
Add some new cushions or linen cushion covers:
This is such an easy but super-effective way to change the look and feel of a room without major redecoration. Just add some new cushions or linen cushion covers, for a summertime vibe. Linen is machine washable, which makes it a great choice for hardwearing pieces that might be exposed to spills, dogs or children. Our stonewashed Rustico linen cushion covers in Oatmeal bring a soft, seasonal aesthetic and they feel lovely against the skin too. Making them perfect for snuggling on the sofa or adding to your bed for luxurious relaxation. And because linen takes dye so well there is a huge range of colors available so you can find the perfect shade for your décor. Try our Terra fringed edges range of cushion covers for a really carefree, homely look.
Use lighter-weight linen throws:
Springtime weather can be changeable and often the evenings are still pretty cool, so adding some linen throws is the ideal way to stay cosy but make the shift away from Winter woollies. Linen throws will keep you warm without overheating. They are stain resistant and machine washable too, making them a great versatile option if you want to use them as picnic blankets in summer. Thanks to its hypoallergenic properties linen is kind to even the most sensitive skin, so the whole family can enjoy the softness of a linen throw.
We like to layer our throws so that we can add or remove them according to the weather. Drape yours across your sofa for an elegant dash of Spring color, or cover your bedlinen for some extra nighttime warmth that will keep you sleeping comfortably all night long. From our adorable Rustico fringed linen throws to our stunning waffle linen throws, there’s something to bring a breath of fresh air into every home.
