Taking on a complete decor overhaul every season is unrealistic, but small accessory and colour updates can work just as well to make your home feel refreshed. Pick a favourite colour, for Gina it was blue, and play with a variety of accessories and textiles in each room to create a theme that ties the whole space together. Opt for light shades and neutral tones for your walls, floors and big pieces of furniture. ‘It’s easier – and more affordable – to change fabrics and little decorations, or paint small stools and side tables. It can feel so depressing here in winter because it’s dark most of the day. The pale, spring-like tones help to brighten my mood and give me energy,’ says Gina.
