No matter the temperature outside, your interior design can stay cool and on trend with our guide to creating the perfect summer inspired room. Whether you’re looking to inject a pop of colour or bring a more subtle summer vibe to your interior, we’ve got you covered.
Setting the tone
The right feature wallpaper can set the tone for your room, along with bolder prints. A bold combination of navy, green and burnt orange works well in this bedroom.
You can use softer tones for a classic look and feel, creating more formal and luxurious spaces that are still perfect for the hottest summer months. This largely neutral lounge with cushions adding a touch of warmth is the perfect example.
Be inspired by all things botanical
With nature still leading the way in interior design, choose artwork and fabrics with prints and patterns that bring the outside in.
From simple cacti in the dining room to leaf motifs in the family room, you can have fun with your style and create a chilled ambiance in your home. Herbs are also a great choice for the kitchen to keep it fresh while florals will always be a timeless choice for a bedroom. For something a little different opt for framed illustrations, sketches or an abstract photograph.
Bright whites for light nights
There’s no easier summer style statement than crisp white bedlinen. Our design team simply loves this classic hotel-inspired look. Cotton is best to help you stay cool and choose a high thread count for luxurious softness. Add throws and cushions for colour and texture; the burnt orange leading edge on these curtains is a fabulous finishing touch.
Amplify the light
Make the most of longer days and lighter nights…mirrored wardrobes are great for reflecting natural light around a bedroom, while a strategically placed wall mirror can have the same effect in any room.
Our designers love geometric frames and metallic finishes.
