If you feel your home isn’t up to scratch, con­sider some up­dates be­fore the party. Do­mayne fur­ni­ture prod­uct and mar­ket­ing man­ager Am­ber Cooke says there are some clear trends this sum­mer.

“Light tim­bers, par­tic­u­larly Scan­di­na­vian­in­spired tim­bers, are re­ally hot,” she says.

“Also with fur­ni­ture, we’re see­ing a lot of mix­ture of ma­te­ri­als and tex­tures, so not ev­ery­thing has to be match­ing. We’re see­ing beau­ti­ful gold tones with tim­ber, pastels, and emer­ald green is right on trend.”

Am­ber says an ex­ten­sion ta­ble is a great op­tion for en­ter­tain­ing.

Dress up the ta­ble us­ing your favourite din­ner­ware and glasses or up­date with a bit of hol­i­day sparkle on plates or cut­lery.

“It’s great to set the ta­ble with beau­ti­ful vases and trays and green­ery,” she says.

“That’s all very in at the mo­ment, in­clud­ing ar­ti­fi­cial plants that look real.”

Am­ber ex­pects Do­mayne’s syn­thetic hand­wo­ven wicker seat­ing is also go­ing to be a pop­u­lar this sum­mer.

“It can be used in­side and out­side in al­fresco ar­eas, it’s very beau­ti­ful,” she says.

“They’re avail­able in beau­ti­ful light tones and they give that airy and re­laxed feel­ing as­so­ci­ated with sum­mer.” Of course, for any­one who has a pool, throw­ing in a few new sea­son in­flat­a­bles and fruit drink floats would be sure to help set the scene for a party.

Do­mayne has a wide va­ri­ety of out­door fur­ni­ture in­clud­ing din­ing and lounges.
