A good spring clean is always in order this time of year. This doesn’t mean you should just tidy up, chuck out and scrub; why not give your decor a revamp too?  This fresh look is the epitome of modern living.

Need some pointers? Keep it simple, use light colours and woods such as teak, birch and beech which work well together.  Keep the number of items in the space to a minimum and only include a few subtle statement pieces like this artwork.
