With summer firmly on its way, it’s time to freshen up your home. Want to give your living room a new look? Create a feature wall with some new wallpaper. Alternatively, reinvent a room with new curtains or blinds, or allow focal accessories to work their magic. Whatever you decide to do, ensure the shades are upliftingly summery – we’ve gone for our favourite interiors in blue, yellow, grey and white for the perfect mix.
Paint and wallpaper can go in and out of fashion like nobody’s business, but right now a combination of the two works wonders. Make the main wall in your living room or bedroom the focus with a covering of pretty wallpaper – we love the textured-looking, modern Superfresco Easy Lucid Wallpaper – Blue and the yellow, grey and white floral Superfresco Easy Capri Wallpaper – Yellow.
Add billowing curtains to your boudoir for a more interesting look. The Kirstie Allsopp Cecile Curtains are wonderfully Parisian and will provide the perfect feminine touch to a predominantly white room. For a more modern approach, there’s our Blackout Roller Blind which is available in a variety of colours.
Furniture-wise, we’ve got a number of items to liven up your home. Today we’re obsessed with ornate chests of drawers, which have the ability to prettify any room in your abode. Our Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen Locanda Ready Assembled Wide Chest of 4 Drawers does the job – the curved base, opposing wood top and contrasting black handles really impress. If you prefer a pop of colour, how about the Fearne Cotton New Fearne Ready Assembled Wide Chest of 3 Drawers? Available in three shades, this unit would work in any room.
You’ll find it difficult to avoid temptation in our home accessories department. It’s a great destination if you want to add to your home’s new look or, instead, it’s the ideal option if you want to add just a touch of something exciting. Our Macey Floor Lamp would look great in sunshine yellow in the corner of a room. On the other end of the scale, we’ve got the Burley Vintage Mirror for a classic aesthetic.
