Bring Summer Into Your Home!

Submitted by on Sunday, 8 May 2011 | No Comment

So it looks like winter has finally gone, hooray! All we see now is adverts for BBQ’s and holidays, so now we think it is time we pack away the throws, hot water bottles and slipper boots for a while and bring some of the summer sunshine into your home. With a few simple changes you can brighten up your home and give it a boost of fresh air and sun.

Right, let’s start with some wall art, this is a simple way to change the wall space in your home without having to paint or do anything drastic. We’ve found this great wooden plaque that has a clean beach feel, think more nautical and clean beaches than hot an oily ones! £22 from Next, it won’t break the bank and will definitely make your summer shine through into your rooms the whole season long!


British fever has swept the world recently with the royal wedding, so British style is here to stay for a very long time. The ‘Keep Calm And Carry On’ theme has come back with a vengance and is on pretty much everything at the moment, so to keep it very British and proud why not invest in some deckchairs for sun-lounging(remember the SPF!) and enjoying company in the garden with a BBQ or two! Choose from red or nacy blue for £90 from Not The Usual.

Want so splash out on something special? then take a look at the Botanica Rug by Bodie and Fou, £560 from Not On The Highstreet. It just bursts sunshine! This bright pink rug will make you smile evey single day you use it,  with gorgeous cut-out of birds, leaves and butterflies.  Made from 100% wool felt and environmentally friendly dyes,  all are made to order so it will feel extra special.


Get some 50s flavour in your life this summer with this vintage style slushie maker. We all love one on a hot day and now you can have one whenever you like and they’re brilliant for parties and a great talking point! You can make pretty much any flavour you want, fruity ones for the kids and gorgeous cocktails for the grown ups, and the best thing? You can get one in your hand within 25 minutes of turning the machine one. Pimms sluhsie anyone? £59.99 from Firebox.


So now you have some ideas, you can create your own summery home to help brighten up your life form the cold winter and fresh spring. Bring on the sun!
