With summer right around the corner and the sun starting to make one or two guest appearances, its time to start freshening up your living room and bringing it back to life from those cold, dark, wet winter nights!

Here are 3 simple tips on how to liven up your living room

Bring the outdoors in

Flowers are a fantastic way to bring lots of life to your living room. Adding bright colours and radiant fragrances, by decorating your living room with lots of flowers and plants you will instantly uplift the mood of your whole living room.

Another quick and easy way to brighten up your living room is the use of bright cushions on your sofa. Whether it be eccentric vibrant cushions or just bright cushions, this can really bring your sofa to life and make it a lot more appealing on these summer days. Also, get rid of any of your thick winter blankets as these can make the room feel stuffy!

Let the Sunshine in!

Finally, keep those curtains open! If you have a set of summer curtains, a much lighter and perhaps more colourful set, then change over to these, but if not, then keep them open, let the fresh air in and enjoy the nice weather while it lasts!
