How to refresh your bedroom this spring!
❀ Spring is officially in full swing!
Spring symbolises renewal, new life, and growth. The great ‘spring clean’ is a tradition that we all follow, and all around the world, it appears that everyone is doing the same. In Iran they “shake the house clean,” in Jewish cultures, they “cleanse” the home for Passover. and in China, they “sweep away bad luck.” With vitality restored during the spring time, ancient man would spring clean as a natural remedy to prevent infection and disease, so the tradition is longstanding and has been carried throughout history.
More importantly, however… it just makes sense! As we shake off the sleepy slumber of winter and breath in the fresh spring air, we feel ready and motivated to attack our homes with gusto.
So, ‘un-batten’ the hatches, open up your home that has been shut tight for winter and follow these simple steps to refresh your bedroom and get it spring ready!
｡｡｡ Honey Pot Lanterns ｡｡｡
These honeypot lanterns come in a set of two. You place your tea light candles inside and they give off a lovely warm spring glow. Each of the honeypots has a sweet wooden charm attached with twine. The slogan reads, “Bee Happy.” So pop these on your bedside table to add a little spring to your bedroom. Here at Girlie Gossip we fell in love with these, so much so we featured them in our March favourites. ♡
｡｡｡ Scatter Cushions ｡｡｡
One of the simplest ways you can refresh your bedroom is through the use of scatter cushions and these options from the NEXT range are quite simply, beautiful.
The ‘Ewe are Loved’ pillow is 50 cm by 40 cm and is made with 100% cotton. The sheep design is made with 3D pom pom details and the slogan on the front is sweet. The cushion is mostly white so you can team this pillow with any bedding set that you have and it would complement any bedroom decor.
The heart pillow part of a full alphabet range, so all of the letters are available as well as a & and # symbol. Also, the heart cushion that you can see in the photograph. The pillow is square in shape and measures 43 cm by 43 cm. It is made with 100% cotton materials with a velvet reverse. Again, the cushion is monochrome in colour so would make a fantastic addition to any bedroom.
｡｡｡ Wax Melts ｡｡｡
Scents allow you to create a one-of-a-kind ambience at home. So, when you want to make a change or refresh your room with minimal effort, scented candles, incense, or wax melts are definitely the way to go.
Bolsius have a huge range of burners and wax melts in a wide variety of scents, no less than 30 fragrances in their range. The wax burners are beautiful and can add a statement in their own right. The melts are also incredible. The scents last a long time, (+/- 25 hours,) and they are strong without being offensive.
