Reclaim Your Living Room –
Norsu Style

Our living rooms have been transformed into home offices and classrooms, as we juggle life, work and schooling from the one location. With the change in season, it’s time to start living again…

Lockdowns have taught us to appreciate our homes more than ever. Our living rooms have been transformed into home offices and classrooms, as we juggle life, work and schooling from the one location.

Most of us have spent way too many hours in the same space, and are ready for a post-lockdown spring living room refresh. We asked the incredible style gurus at Norsu Interiors to provide some simple, but effective tips to reclaim your sanctuary.

1. Warm up your palette

Nothing says spring more than warmer tones and a pop of colour. There is definitely a style trend towards a more warmer, earthier colour palette at the moment, which is perfect for the change in season. Think clay, ochre, natural linens and sage greens. This doesn’t mean that you have to redecorate your entire space, a simple pop of colour in a cushion, teamed with a vase or coloured candle is sometimes all that is needed.

Our top picks:

Norsu Comfort Edit Cushions

Marmoset Found Ribbed Infinity Vase

Make Scents Of It Tall Heart Candle

2. Introduce lightweight throws

It’s time to retire your woollen and heavier throws until next winter, and replace them with lightweight linens and cottons that will still soften your space while still providing you with something to snuggle up to in the evening on the sofa.

Our top picks:

Eadie Lifestyle Sea Foam Reversible Throw

L&M Home Burton Throw

L&M Home Montana Throw

3. Bring the outdoors in

The ultimate way to lift your space is through indoor greenery. Spring flowers in vases and indoor plants that could take on a more permanent role within your home will not only add life, but improve air quality and the mood immensely.

Our top picks:

L&M Home Mona Cone Vase

Potted Berlin Planter

Alder Planter Snow

4. Invest in new artwork

If you’re tired of staring at the same artwork day in and day out over the never-ending lockdown, it may be time to give the entire space a reset with a new piece for your wall. Art has the ability to completely transform a space and set the tone for your room, so never under-estimate the contribution it could make if you’re desperate for a refresh. Once you’ve chosen your perfect piece, be sure to tie in your decorative items such as cushions and styling objects in complementary tones to create cohesion and balance.

Our top picks:

Kimmy Hogan Honey Flower Collection

Jen Siever’s Heartsong Collection

Adele Naidoo Botanical Inspired Collections

5. Set the mood with a new fragrant candle

One of the simplest, yet most impactful (and cost effective) ways to lift your space is through scent. Selecting a candle with floral notes will give that instant spring vibe, and transform your living room into an inviting sanctuary for your family and guests, when the time comes.

Our top picks:

Make Scents of it Candle

Bondi Scent Candle

Grace and James – Antibes Scented Candle
