1. Vibrant or Lighter Palette Power:

Is your living room still stuck in winter mode with dark hues dominating the scene? It's time to bid farewell to those gloomy tones and invite pastels to paint the town (or your walls) in summer shades! Think dreamy soft sage greens, blues, yellows and pinks that evoke a sense of tranquillity and lightness. Don't be afraid to experiment with vibrant accents décor through throw pillows, curtains, or even a colourful rug. Embrace the cool and breezy atmosphere that pastels bring, setting the perfect backdrop for your summer adventures indoors.



2. Blossoming Beauties:

What's summer without flowers? Sprinkle your home with the natural beauty and invigorating scents of blooming florals. Place vibrant arrangements of sunflowers, daisies, peonies or dainty wildflowers on your dining table, windowsills, or entryway console. For a creative touch in your summer home décor, try using vintage glass bottles as vases or hang dried flower wreaths for a whimsical summer vibe. These botanical wonders will instantly freshen up any room, making your house feel like a floral paradise all season long.

At each side there are white textured plates, linen napkins on top of the plates with a branch of rosemary on top. Gold cutlery at each side of the plates which includes two forks, a knife and spoon. Two types of glasses are at the top left of the plate, one clear for wine and a amber tumbler for water.

3. Lively Textiles:

As temperatures rise, it's time to bid farewell to heavy fabrics and embrace lightweight textiles that exude a summery feel. Swap out thick blankets for lightweight throws in cotton or linen. Dress your sofas and chairs in breezy slipcovers, perhaps in soft neutrals or cheerful pastel shades. Not only will this create a more relaxed and breathable atmosphere, but it will also give your space a seasonal facelift without breaking the bank, perfect for summer home décor.



4. Coastal Charm:

Want to bring a touch of the beach into your home? Incorporate coastal elements into your décor for that seaside getaway vibe. Accessorise with nautical-themed accents like driftwood art, seashells, and coral-inspired trinkets. Hang a large woven basket on a wall, perfect for storing beach towels or displaying a collection of summertime reads. These subtle reminders of the ocean will transport you to the shore, even if you're landlocked.





5. Let the Light In:

Summer is all about embracing natural light and letting it flood your home. Swap heavy curtains for sheer, gauzy fabrics that allow sunlight to filter through. Consider adding breezy white or bamboo blinds to your windows for a relaxed, resort-like ambiance. As an extra touch, strategically place mirrors to reflect sunlight and create the illusion of a brighter, more spacious area. Remember, a well-lit space can make all the difference in setting the summer mood.
