BRINGING SUMMER HOME
The days and nights are now spectacularly warm, and you can adjust your home décor to suit. Try adding pops of colour to refresh a room by adding bright graphics, flowers or homewares.
Now is an excellent opportunity to mix textures and perhaps add more natural fibres to your home, such as a straw mat to give your home a more bohemian, relaxed look.
Take down heavy drapes and replace them with light, flowy curtains.
This is a romantic look while still maintaining the privacy you need.
White is a wonderful colour for summer — its clean, pure look fits in with the warm weather.
Think about adding white homewares, white furniture or perhaps painting some white feature walls.
One of the most exciting additions to summer home living is the excuse of adding a hammock or daybed.
It can often be far too cold to have an outdoor daybed in Highfields in winter, so summer is the perfect time to soak up some sun outside.
Position a hammock in a cosy nook and pile with pillows for the ultimate relaxation station.
Scatter succulents and plants throughout your home — many people like having hanging plants, or plants weaved through lattices outdoors.
Beach-style and nautical additions such as rope, shells and collapsible chairs add a great summer feel to any home.
Whatever you decide to do, the most important part of implementing summer into your home décor is to brighten and freshen the area.
