Is it spring yet?! No? Seriously? Anyone? Ah Dunelm, thank you for providing us with all the lovely spring interiors that we all need right now.
Please join us as we dream of slightly warmer, sunnier times and lust over the new Dunelm living room collection. Seriously, if you are feeling blue Monday hard this year, keep scrolling for lovely, easy and cheap living room ideas that will make your space feel fresher. Spring cleaning (and redecorating) really does exist for a reason.
1. Mix in some light wooden accents
Ah just looking at this room makes us feel slightly less miserable about the winter. The light, the lovely green hues and of course, the gorgeous pale wood and rattan accessories. Everybody loves a bit of rattan at the moment don't they, and introducing a few bits of this on-trend material could be the lift your living room has been waiting for. This gorgeous woven rattan light is just £39.20 in the Dunelm sale, and if it something bigger you are after, that lovely light wooden ladder shelf is only £99.
2. Switch up your living room cushions
Can you ever have too many cushions? We certainly don't think so. They are such a quick way to change the look of a room with minimal effort and expense. There are some really gorgeous ones in the new Dunelm range; we love this embroidered parakeet cushion mixed in with the palm prints and the tinges of pink are giving all the spring vibes.
3. Add some new accessories
Got a sideboard in your living room, or a mantelpiece? Use that space to add some spring approved decorations and quickly change your room with the seasons. Something as simple as adding a new light (we love this bamboo lantern), hanging a couple of prints or piling up some spring magazines (this month's Real Homes would totally work, wink wink, nudge nudge).
4. Choose olive green for a Mid-century vibe
If you're after a more contemporary take on this lovely, soft spring look, pick out greens that are slightly deeper and more vivid.
You can still mix in all those nice natural materials and neutral colours, but just give it a bit of edge with a sofa that has stark lines and a distinctly modern shape. We love the Elodie sofa bed and it's just £299, cute and cheap.
5. If in doubt, houseplants
Because nothing says spring quite like plants. Oh and don't worry if you can't be trusted with sea monkeys let alone a real house plant, Dunelm have some really realistic fake plants that even you can't kill. Oh and we see you eyeing up that green velvet chair, lucky for you it's Dunelm too! Just £249, we have seen that style elsewhere for way more than that so get it while you can at such a fab price.
