BRING­ING SUM­MER HOME

Highfields' Own - - Interior -

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.
