Seasonal Changes for your Home
Updated: Jan 21, 2021
I don’t know about you but I can get easily bored of elements within my home, particularly when we move through the year, from season to season. That cushion I bought in spring doesn’t always work when we start the slippery slope into winter.
Luckily, small changes to items such as cushions can help make your home feel full of the joys of spring and cosy when needed. But what else can we do other than a cushion or throw to help transition our homes if we wanted?
Colour blocking, whilst being on trend, it’s also an amazing way to give a little seasonal update to your home for a very small cost. A little frog tape, a tape measure, a mini roller and a larger test pot is all that’s needed to create a little drama.

A little back story.... I am currently living with my family in a full house renovation project. The final phase will hopefully be an extension and remodel to large areas of the house, finance permitting. In the meantime, we are working our way through the house and painting everything white to make it more livable and a little less “tired” without spending a fortune on multiple different colour paints.
The lounge has been the most recent room to join the “completed” list. I wanted to add a splash of colour, so jumped at the chance to play with a bit of colour blocking. I chose a soothing, green, Valspar (tester pots are so big!) Warm Eucalyptus R259B based on the colour from a few of our cushions. It’s a perfect Autumn/Winter colour. I have popped a few stage photos below along with the final photo featuring my very old, child beaten sofa *insert excited dance for the day I get to go sofa shopping.
I have every intention of changing this for a mustard when I get bored of it, the paint is already sat in the garage for when I get that urge! It will most likely coincide with the arrival of summer.
Go on, get some tester pots, you won't regret it!
