If you're itching to throw your windows wide open and refresh your living space, it might be time for a little Spring cleaning and perhaps a lick of paint! It's out with the hygge and in with zesty colours, botanical influences and statement art this Spring...
Zesty tones are big news for Spring! Blow away the dark moody hues of winter with these sunny updates. These hues are an easy way to freshen up any room on the cheap - paint the frame of a large mirror for instant impact or add a large scatter cushion to your sofa for a bright and breezy look.

If your furniture is looking a bit tired, why not give it bright update? We love this yellow cupboard for the kitchen - it's a great focal point for the room and make a very ordinary piece look instantly on-trend. It may be an update reserved for the brave and bold, but it is a fantastic way to raise a smile when using an everyday piece like this.
As the saying goes, florals for Spring are hardly groundbreaking - but try a twist on the usual kitschy blousy blooms and trade in for botanical inspired prints and a lot of greenery. Think straight-out-of-a-school-text-book flowers with plenty of foliage; try ferns, palm leaves and monstera plants to inspire your next house project.
For big changes, try wallpaper (a statement wall has been the easy way to update a room for years - we say be brave and paper the whole room for a statement). This trend is easy to incorporate into small refreshes and changes to your soft furnishings; why not try a new framed artwork or botanical print cushion?
This Pinterest board has a great round-up of Spring/Summer trends to try for 2017. Whether it's turning industrial items into useful storage or using ladders for shelves, the team at Elle Decoration are always bang on trend for the year ahead with a mix of interior styles for both minimalists and maximalists. Our favourite idea? Statement artwork; whether it's a classic piece you can pass down for generations to come (left), a huge landscape photo of a dramatic mountain scene (centre) or layered frames in different monochromes to add depth and interest to a focal area (right).
