1. THOSE PESKY ALLERGIES ARE PLAYING UP

Research suggests you should replace your pillow at least every two years (more often if you have allergies), because pillows are a breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites. Buy a removable pillow case and wash regularly. Check out our easy guide for picking the right pillow for you.

2. IT’S GETTING HOT & HEAVY UNDER THE COVERS

Now is the time to change that doona to a light-weight option. Opt for a weight around 300gsm for spring comfort, 200gsm for summer, and back to 500gsm in winter. Keep a light throw close by to layer with on cool spring nights. Cotton is ideal because it absorbs moisture away from the body and creates even heat distribution. Check out our quilt fibre guide for more information.

3. YOU’VE BEEN FANTASISING ABOUT SLIPPING INTO LINEN

100 percent linen sheets and quilt covers are great for spring and summer due to their natural breath-ability. They also have the benefit of getting softer after every wash, and will last you years.

4. YOU’RE UNINSPIRED WITH YOUR CURRENT STYLE

An easy and affordable way to transform your bedroom is to invest in a new quilt cover set. For fans of a classic look, stripes are making a bit return this spring. For a bold and modern statement, go geometric in black and white, and for the floral fan, painterly designs and digital flower prints are popular this spring. For a tranquil look, try a design in soft watercolour blues.

5. THE DETAILS ARE LOOKING DRAB

Update bedroom accessories for instant life. Metallic accents are hot right now and work best paired with a mix of materials and surfaces. Don’t forget: metallic accessories don’t always have to match, so mix polished and brushed finishes for added interest. Find more decorating tips for metallic here.
