Guess what?! Summer is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited to switch up our wardrobe and our interiors. With loads of stunning new trends coming through, we thought it would be a great time to share with you our top tips for preparing your home for the Summer season.

1. Start Fresh 

Make way for new exciting looks by clearing out the clutter and storing away any winter pieces, like heavy throws, dark colours, heaters or winter clothing.

2. Add Lighter Textures & Tones 

Pick from vibrant patterns or pastel tones and give your bedspread a refreshing update. If you would like to add in a throw, then choose one in a light cotton fabric.

3. Bring the Garden Inside 

If you want an instant Summer look, then add some plants to your living room and bring the outdoors inside. Succulents or palms are ideal for indoors, as they don’t need much maintenance.

4. Prepare to Party 

Make sure you get your kitchen ready to host the best Summer parties, by flagging the perfect mojito, cold canapé and summer dip recipes in your cookbooks and investing in accident-proof tableware.

5. Choose Summer Scents 

Think fresh florals or fruity fragrances when purchasing candles for your home this season. Summery scents are a quick way to welcome in the new season.
