Delicious Summer Decor
It’s almost time we waved goodbye to spring and welcomed summer with open arms. Summer makes you think of lazy days at the beach, eating juicy watermelons and playing in the sunshine…among many other amazing things. So why not bring your favourite parts of summer into your surroundings and make the most of the season. Read on to discover fresh and fun ways to incorporate a summery vibe in your home.
Pineapples are the fruit of the season – and not just in the literal sense. Everywhere you look pineapples are trending. Depending on your love for this delicious fruit, you can incorporate subtle decorative touches such as prints for your wall, pineapple bedspreads and cute little decorative knick-knacks, or go all out with pineapple feature walls. Yes, pineapple wallpaper does in fact exist. Spongebob was on to something when he decided to live in a pineapple under the sea.
Fresh is best
Just like summer fruits, choosing bright fresh colours is a hot tip for getting on board the summer design trend. The first colours that spring to mind are oranges, yellows, reds, greens and blues…all of which trigger that association with warmth and the ocean. Embrace this colour palette and add splashes of colour everywhere you can – from curtains and cushions to bright bouquets of fresh flowers.
Summer is all about enjoying the sunshine and what nature has to offer, so what better way to add a summery design flair than bringing your favourite natural elements from the outside in. Leafy prints for your walls or even the odd fern or tropical flower will bring life into any room – you can even opt for fake foliage as it lasts much longer and is a very low maintenance option for those of you that don’t have a green thumb. Alternatively, cushions or accessories with animal print is a fun way to spice up a room.
