Decorating Month

29th April 2021

As we listen to gentle birdsong and witness the emergence of nature’s vibrant colours – it’s clear that spring is the symbolic encapsulation of rebirth.

With the outdoors bursting with life, many will have the urge to revamp their inside surroundings – and, since April is Decorating Month, there’s no better time to ditch the old and welcome the new for 2021. 

Sometimes knowing where to start on a decorating project can be daunting – but fear not; you needn’t be Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen to add a touch of style to your living space. We at Garden Square know a thing or two about interior decoration; read on for our top tips! 

Get Painting

The key to interior decoration is colour; red can bring warmth and intimacy to any living room, while grey can help to make a space feel calm and serene. We recommend you take a somewhat daring approach and opt for a vibrant, bold or rich colour – and the best part is if you don’t like it, you can always repaint it!

Reinvigorate your home with Pep&Co’s range of £3 easy to apply paints, available to buy in-store now! Their collection includes a gorgeous teal hue, mustard yellow, pebble grey, magnolia, brilliant white and green velvet. Customers can also get their hands on the white paint in a quick-drying metal and wood finish as well as a durable matt emulsion for ceilings and walls! 

Get the family involved and tackle one room at a time – it could end up becoming an excellent way to enjoy quality time with your kids. Pro tip: this year, Forbes says that green is a colour that shouldn’t be ignored!

Turning The Tables

Simply rearranging some furniture can bring rebirth to your living areas. A new rug and pillows on your couch and bed can do wonders! Home Bargains and Pep&Co have everything from stylish furniture to the ornaments that bring the finishing touch to just about any room.

Of course, you don’t necessarily have to buy new furniture to change up your house. If you fancy something a little more challenging, why not try your hand at some DIY furniture upcycling. You can reupholster your favourite couches and chairs with a new type of fabric to match your updated decor. As far as wooden furniture goes, you can also stain it from light to dark or vice versa. The world (and your home) is your oyster!

Breathe Life Into Your Home

Artwork is what helps define the personality of the homeowner and their space – however, selecting the right pieces can be difficult. If you fancy delving into the world of art, we recommend a visit to Letchworth’s Broadway Gallery – although they are currently closed until 20 May, you can still explore their spectacular exhibition space online. Whether you’re looking to purchase a work of art, or simply seeking inspiration; this wonderful gallery is sure to ignite your creative spark!

If you’re not artistically inclined, perhaps you could spice up your interior decor with crafts made by your kids? Head to The Works at Garden Square and grab all of the accessories needed to get crafty with your little ones! 

Love Your Space

Now that you can see how simple interior decorating can be, it’s time to decide on your style, prioritise your rooms and get started! Your new home will look perfectly put together in no time – just don’t be afraid to try something new and bold, because we all deserve to “love where you live!”
