Spring is here and has brought with it a number of ideas for homeowners looking to introduce new trends and project ideas.
Mike Greeff, chief executive of Greeff Christie’s International Real Estate, offers the following ideas:
Introduce plants: Not only are plants a great natural air purification system for the home, they create a good aesthetic feel. Look at plants like bamboo, palm and ficus to complement your decor.
Spruce up your garden: Gardens are synonymous with spring. Plants such as parsley, coriander, mint and lemongrass are fast-growing and fragrant.
Resand and varnish the perfect patio set: Everyone enjoys afternoon drinks or a light lunch on their patio. Keeping true to DIY tradition, relook at an old outdoor dining set you may have kept in storage or, alternatively, pick up a set from an antique store and get to work transforming it.
Introduce new shades into the home’s colour palette: Think pastels and trendy colours, and also look at Pantone’s colour of the year.
