Summer is officially here and we’re looking forward to some warm weather at the end of the week, hoorah! If you’re feeling inspired to get your home summer-ready, we’ve come up with a few ideas to bring the outside in! Get ready to immerse yourself in a house that reflects the elements of the season with our top tropical picks…
Seasonal interior updates are a must. You don’t want your home reminding you of colder climes when it’s beautiful and balmy outside! However before you start panicking, there’s no need for a TOTAL overhaul, just a slight uplift here and there will work wonders!
Start by considering your colour palette. Try incorporating bright colours and floral patterns with breezy fabrics to reflect the weather outside. Stow away those heavy layered curtains and dress your windows in light airy ones to bring in some sunshine. Why not go for a truly tropical transition and fill the place with scented to candles? We chose the Set Of 6 Summer Fragranced Candles for an alluring fragrance as well as the Palm Leaf And Guaicwood Votives – both double up as decorative accessories that can be used to dress a side table.
A great way to boost the mood is by adding brightly coloured accents to your decor, for example – mix and match stripy and bright throw cushions will easily jazz up a neutral sofa! Maybe it’s time to be brave and move away from a coordinated space?? Trying contrasting our Embroidered Tropical Floral Cushion with mix and match bed sets and duvet covers for a tropical look. Or if you’re still keen to keep things matchy-matchy, try placing a few accessories on a mantle piece or a coffee table that echo the same hue.
Incorporating new colourways through statement rugs can also create a striking effect throughout your home. Our pick for the season would be the Scion Raita Green And Blue Rug, creating a bright and vibrant feel. Or for the kitchen, bring home a new set of our 12 Piece Annelise Dinner Set or a Set of 2 Pad Print Bowls – these are sure to lend an instant summery upgrade.
For a suuuuper bold update you could also consider a feature wall with botanical inspired wallpaper! If you’re a fan of floral, you’ll LOVE our Palm Tree Wallpaper or the Twilight Garden Wallpaper matched with metallic accessories. For a retro vibe, perhaps the Pink Geo Trellis Wallpaper would make for an eye-catching upgrade too? Along with a statement pendant light – this Oriana Large Sphere Pendant is ticking all the right boxes!
From tranquil florals or colour-popping palm prints, these are a few easy ways you can bring the summer hues into your home and make the most of the season.
