Although you wouldn't always tell by the temperature, spring is already in sight. And I don't know about you, but it always makes me want to run a broom and a bucket of soapy water through my interior! Especially because it is often still too cold to sit outside, but I already need that outdoor feeling. To help you on your way, I share my 5 best tips to make your home spring-proof.
Tip 1 - A good start is half the battle
If you want to tackle your interior properly, it is very nice if you can get started in a tidy space. I know, it's not the nicest job, but take a critical look at the things you have at home and decide what you want to keep and what can go to the recycler. If you are unsure about certain items, put them away in a box for a while. If you haven't looked after them after six months, they can still go.
Bonus tip: April 27 is King's Day, then you can lose a lot of junk!
Yep, get rid of it!
Tip 2 - Make a statement wall
Many people find it scary to work with colors because they are afraid it will become too hysterical. But color often gives an interior more character. If you are hesitant to use color, choose 1 wall that you paint in a nice color or on which you stick a cool wallpaper. This is what you call a statement wall. You keep the rest of the walls natural, so that you still get a calm whole. If you are tired of the color, you can give this wall a lick of paint again. That way you don't have to paint all the walls and you still have a whole new fresh look.

Tip 3 - Use color in your accessories
In the spring it is often not warm enough to sit outside. To get that summery feeling, you can use colorful home accessories. For example, swap the cushions on your couch for colorful ones and you immediately create a completely different atmosphere. Even by using vases, photo frames or illustrations, you can still create something completely new with small changes. If you choose colors from the color palette of your statement wall, this also brings the interior together again.

Tip 4 - Get started yourself!
Keeping up with the latest living trends can be quite expensive. And this is not always useful if the end of the month is far from in sight. Fortunately, you can also make a lot of things yourself very easily! On Pinterest you will find super fun DIYs that are also very easy to perform. So you have new home accessories and entertainment in one.
Bonus tip: homemade home accessories also work very well as gifts.
