Spruce up your home this spring with these must-have homewares
Article posted: November 1, 2019
Spring has arrived and with it an overwhelming urge to throw open the windows, declutter or simply spruce up your home.
And there is no need to call in the professionals or to spend a fortune breathing new life into your rooms.
With a little DIY confidence and the right pieces, you can channel your inner Shayna Blaze and have the fresh look you love in no time.
Finding the right pieces for your home is key – cushions, throws or fresh linens may be small but their transformative effect is huge. Say goodbye to those dark winter hues you’ve been cosying up to and hello to light and bright.
Take a walk through Camberwell’s homeware stores to find all the inspiration you need.
Sheridan Studio’s collection of cushions and covers embrace the new season with 2019’s soft and light palette, in a mix of fabrics from fluffy to fabulous. Take things a step further with their chic wall art or add candles or a diffuser for a fresh spring scent.
Provincial Home Living’s range runs from neutral to bold, and with a beautiful selection of cushions and throws to compliment, your home’s freshen-up will be as easy as it is classy.
A bedroom revamp can also provide that spring revitalisation your home yearns for. Fabulous new bed linen can work wonders on the room you go to at the end of a busy day. Beautiful bedding from Abode Living will catapult your ‘me-space’ into a luxe retreat. Designer quilt covers, sheets and pillow cases are just the start. The coverlets, throws and blankets may prove irresistible and an incredible range of pelts and hides will take luxury to the next level.
Take the spring spruce up to another stage with a few great furniture pieces. Change the mood of a room or add an element of charm or sophistication by simply introducing a new element.
Camberwell Antique Centre won’t let you down in your hunt for that edgy and full-of-characterful item. A single statement period piece will bring dramatic change to a room or pick up a few smaller vintage items to add a touch of history to your shelves and tabletops.
Pick up a premium furniture or a beautifully handcrafted item at Schwartz & Angelo. For 50 years the workshop and showroom has been in Camberwell and elegance exudes from every piece, whether it’s an exquisite work desk or a formal dining table.
Or since spring is in the air, head to the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market and find yourself a pre-loved gem. Discover a vintage treasure among the 370 stalls to bring a unique touch to your interior space.
For a quick-hit change that has big impact, why not update your dinnerware or serving ware? Have fun with bright colours and new textures to make home entertaining engaging again.
Try Wheel & Barrow’s Coupe New Bone dinner set in white and add textured coasters and placemats with a multi-coloured, tassled runner.
A few Jasper Conran designed Wedgewood pieces from Minimax will bring a spring bloom straight to your table. Or add a splash of crisp blue from their chic Royal Dalton collection.
Here’s to fresh new homes in spring, however you choose to achieve it.
