Accessories offer an instant and inexpensive route out of tired-feeling spaces . A handful of new cushions in soft shades and subtle nature-inspired patterns to revive cherished sofas . Throws and rugs to bring in new textures and much-needed warmth for those still-to-come chilly days that catch us off guard .

Soft greens and pale blues echo the start of spring and complement more neutral interiors – whilst adding a subtle burst of life and colour . Follow this theme throughout your space and fill with an abundance of fresh sprigs of foliage , early spring blooms cut from the garden or trailing houseplants . Helping to bring the outside in , these touches offer a sympathetic nod to nature and the shifting seasons , now bursting into life following the dormancy of winter .

While coffee tables take centre stage , there is a growing need for the unassuming side table . More compact in stature , its smaller footprint means it slots easily into awkward corners or next to a sofa or armchair . Offering the perfect pew for a table lamp to provide a soft , illuminating glow for a favourite reading corner or a convenient spot for your midmorning coffee . Thanks to their size , side tables offer up the opportunity to add interesting displays or subtle storage without taking up too much space – and they tick the box for versatility too . Small and light enough to move effortlessly between rooms when the occasion calls .
