How Do I Make My House Feel Summery?
There are a few ways you can make your home feel like a summer sanctuary. Welcome the sunny season into your space by making the most of the natural light. Drape windows with white curtains, voile panels or bamboo shades to keep rooms airy and bright.
Elevate large floor space by replacing old doormats and runners with rattan weaved rugs to bring fresh summer vibes to your space AND help keep walkways clean – double win!
One of our fave summer décor hacks is to bring the outdoors in with tropical plants and planters – who doesn’t love an indoor jungle!
You’ve heard of spring cleaning, well say hello to its fun best friend – summer cleaning! It’s time to channel the age-old mantra ‘out with the old and in with the new’, and declutter ‘til your heart’s content.
Pass on any well-loved clothes, toys or unwanted furniture to charity shops, or gather your goodies and have a car boot sale. A fun way to make sure your items go to a happy home and top up your holiday fund – (we’re not complaining!).
Maximise Your Space
Uplift your existing space by rearranging furniture and carefully selecting pieces that complement your rooms – whatever their size. Try your best to avoid placing large pieces of furniture near doors or other entrances – place them by open walls instead.
Picking out a stylish (and fluffy) rug is the perfect way to make your room feel bigger in an instant. Choosing a nude, light or grey rug will open up your space and take away attention from any dark flooring.
For larger decorating projects, consider splattering your walls with white paint or nude shades to reflect the light and give THE ultimate illusion that even the smallest spaces are super spacious.
Upgrade Your Bedding
If you’re longing for a midsummer night’s dream, why not freshen up your bedding? With warm summer evenings on the cards, you’ll want to switch out your heavy winter quilt for a lightweight summer duvet to keep you cool during those all-important hours of beauty sleep.
Transform your bedroom with beautiful summer bedding and pick duvet covers in bright shades like yellow, orange and pink. Welcome texture with floral or tropical print duvet sets and for a final cosy touch, kit out your space with comfy cushions and chic throws. Our bold and brights and rattan and jute trending collections feature must-have picks – whatever vibe you’re channelling.
Liven Up Walls
The artwork in your home can be as unique as you, and we’ve got something for every budding baker, botanist, and beauty guru with our artsy collection of prints.
Elongate hallways and living room walls with sophisticated and stylish mirrors. Select designs that match you’re existing décor with stunning copper and rose accents or gold-toned mirrors.
Drop Some Colour
The secret to perfecting your summer home décor is by introducing a pop of colour!
Whites, nudes and pastel shades are ideal for expanding large spaces like walls and floors, while dashes of hot pinks, bright oranges and sunny yellows are ideal for injecting some summer style into your sanctuary.
Create A Tropical Paradise
Invite some greenery into your space with a gorgeous artificial plant. Easy to maintain and delightful to look at – they are a fuss-free centrepiece for hallways, shared living areas and even bathrooms too!
For those of you who are naturally green-fingered, indoor plants like peace lilies and monstera plants are stunning additions to your humble abode.
Once you’ve set your eyes on your dream plant, be sure to pop into a trendy vase – and, ta-dah – you’ve got an eye-catching showpiece!
There’s no better complement to the glorious weather than equally delightful summer scents (yum!).
From berries and cherries candles to rose-scented reed diffusers and elegant ouds, our collection of candles and home fragrances will keep your space smelling fresh all summer long.
Stock up your fave smells, impress guests with inviting aromas and make hosting any summertime soirée a breeze.
