For simple ideas that can lift a room or space, it’s as easy as a fresh coat of paint. A foolproof way to brighten up your home for spring is to go all-white. If that’s not possible, try adding airier elements instead — think sheer white curtains that let the light in, white linens, and fresh houseplants. However even a darker coloured feature wall can elevate a tired space, especially when embellished with a light or bright piece of artwork.
