For less than $100, Jes­sica Bellef has put to­gether 10 ideas to give your home that spring vibe

Ro­tate your art and framed photos for a new view or out­look

Add green­ery - in­vest in pot plants. Some fo­liage, such as philo­den­dron, will sur­vive in a vase for a lot longer than flow­ers

Restyle book­shelves and hall­way con­sole dis­plays. Add in­ex­pen­sive colour­ful glass and tex­tured ce­ramic pieces to ac­cent your col­lec­tion

Freshen up bed­rooms with crisp white bed­ding or layer dif­fer­ent tex­tures to cre­ate a lush sanc­tu­ary

Re­move some­thing from a room to lighten up the space – fur­ni­ture that doesn’t have a pur­pose or an art­work that is dark and heavy

Let the spring light in. Re­place blinds or heavy cur­tains with sheers

Lay a new rug – a bright and bold pat­tern will add happy energy to a room or if neu­trals are more your thing, sisal and jute floor­ing brings a coastal, sum­mery feel to the room

Re­ar­range fur­ni­ture. For ex­am­ple, in the lounge­room po­si­tion seats away from the tele­vi­sion or have them face each other

It’s amaz­ing what new cush­ions can do – try lighter pat­terns and colours in linen and cot­ton

In the kitchen, put away ap­pli­ances you don’t use. Buy pretty can­is­ters, place­mats, or table­cloths; in­vest in a wall­pa­per splash­back, a piece of art or use black­board paint on a space to hold im­por­tant notes
