As the first signs of spring emerge around us, like the birds gathering twigs we’re feeling the call to tend our own nests. Now is the perfect time to refresh and reinvigorate your home, bringing some new energy and life into the space. This doesn’t mean buying lots of new things or totally redecorating – keeping sustainability in mind means we can change things up without adding to landfill or acquiring unnecessary objects. So, here’s our tips for an easy, sustainable spring refresh for a beautiful bedroom.
Work with your existing paint scheme
Rather than repainting, with all the expense, effort and additional resources that involves, by simply adding new linen bedlinen you can completely transform your bedroom. Choose colours that complement the walls and existing colour scheme. For a neutral, pared-back space, try our Silver bedlinen set or a Taupe duvet cover with contrasting pillow cases. To bring some soft spring tones into your bedroom, add a set of our adorable Rosa bedlinen (how cute is this ticking stripe version?). Or try our works-with-everything Sea Foam colourway in supersoft stonewashed linen.
To amp up the colour even more, we love our Citrine and Moss Green bedlinen sets. They keep things natural in tone but add some stronger colour. As the bed is probably the biggest piece of furniture in your bedroom, using colourful bedlinen can create a dramatic impact with minimal effort.
As well as its eco-credentials another wonderful thing about linen is its breathability. So, as the temperatures rise you’ll stay comfortable and sleep well, from spring right through summer. A set of linen bedlinen is an investment for all-season beauty, in a sustainable fabric that will last for years. From the charming natural crumples to the heavenly luxe feel, you’ll want to stay in bed way past breakfast time.
Add fresh accents
If your budget doesn’t stretch to new bedlinen, an easy way to create a fresh new look in your bedroom is to add accents, like cushions. Again, you can choose to match with your existing colour scheme, or be bold and opt for pops of colour that create interesting contrasts. Adding different textures to a space can also change the feel – try a mix of velvet and linen cushions for a tactile combination. Pair stripes with florals for an instant style statement.
As well as adding cushions, just switching your winter wool blanket for a linen throw will bring a different vibe into the space. A linen throw is still cosy and snuggly, but it’s lighter and more appropriate for spring and summer.
Bring the outside inside
A jar of spring flowers on a bedside table add immediate joy and life to your bedroom. From the first snowdrops through to bunches of jewel-coloured tulips, there’s nothing quite like bringing some of the natural world into your home. Branches of blossom or pussy willow also look amazing, bringing some sculptural shape.
Let the light in
Changing your window dressing for some linen curtains is a great way to bring more spring light into your bedroom, whilst still maintaining a comfortable atmosphere for sleep. Lighter coloured linen curtains feel joyfully fresh, or you can choose a stronger tone if you want to add depth and drama. Our curtains have different finishes to suit every interior: rod pockets, ties, pleats and grommets. And they’re ready to ship as soon as you’ve chosen the perfect pair.
And there you have it – a sustainable spring refresh for a beautiful bedroom. Job done!
