Décor for your home this spring-Icon Homz

Spring heralds warmth in the weather and bursts of colour with lovely blooms all over the city. The mood change is apparent from the cold and dull to the sunny and cheerful days. How about bringing the same cheeriness within your cozy home?

Home décor is an evolving process and it need not be an expensive affair to change the look of your home according to the season or mood. Here are top 3 inexpensive and pretty ways that you can reproduce the ‘spring’ effect within your home:

Adding colours: Yes, since spring is about cheerful colours, it’s time to give the beige, blacks and whites a little break. Adding colourful cushions to your existing furniture can bring about a stunning and warm effect to your living room.

Let the greens in: You need not have to have a green thumb to have lovely fresh looking plants around. Low-maintenance plants like the fern, snake plant or Devil’s Ivy can easily thrive indoors with very less attention. This way, you can have nature and freshness alive and kicking right beside you and as a side-effect- a beautiful surrounding.

Fresh blooms: The market is filled with fresh blooms in myriad colours. Bring in some fresh flowers and out in a vase, jug or old bottle to instantaneously liven any nook or corner. Trim the stems and add a crushed asprin to the fresh water to keep the flowers looking fresh for a longer duration.

Give the old a new look-Icon Homz

Tired of your old furniture, want a new look for your house and yet do not want to spend a fortune on new furniture? We’ll give you tips on how to warp the old in a new and vibrant look.

Restore the old: Your old wooden almirah might be a few decades old. With the surface peeling off at certain areas, it probably is quite an eye-sore. However, you do not yet want to sell it or give it away to the scrap dealer since it is very sturdy and holds a lot of stuff than the new-age cupboards might.

You can scrape off the existing wooden polish, apply a coat of primer and then give it a fresh coat of paint of your choice. If you are artistic, you can even add some hand-painted motifs; else can rope in a local carpenter to add some hand-painted tiles to give your furniture a new and classic look.

If you like some DIY experiments, you can do this at home, else there are a few stores that would happily transform your furniture for a fee.

Transform the old: Before discarding any old piece of furniture or home décor artifacts, try to think out of the box and see if the old can be broken down to make something entirely new. For example, an old book rack can be broken down to make floating shelves or a baby cradle into a coffee table or swing for adults. Similarly old wine bottles can be painted or weaved in colourful threads to transform them into vases or artifacts.
