We are sharing our top tips for updating your interior for summer with simple steps. From introducing flowers to changing your colour scheme.

Introduce Mirrors

By introducing mirrors into your home, it will help brighten up the area, especially when trying to add light to a naturally dark space such as corridors or north facing rooms.

The trick of reflecting light goes as far back as the ancient Egyptians when creating the pyramids.

Summer Drinks Bar

With the current (and lifelong) trend of gin, it is extremely fashionable to include a drinks trolley within your home. We have seen a huge revamp in drinks trolleys creating stylish accessories within living and dining rooms. Designers such as Eichholtz

Pastel Colours

With the current trend of ice cream tones, this summer is the perfect time to add them into your home. The millennial pink has taken interiors by storm however it can be difficult to implement it within every home. Depending on your style, it can be celebrated with bold prints or softer hues. Here are some of our favourite looks to bring spring into your home.

If pastel tones are a step too far away from your colour scheme, stick to lighter tones with the occsional splash such as this beautiful shot from Cindy West Ray.

Bring the Outside In

By introducing plants and flowers that are in season (we suggest Peonies and freesias for June) it will instantly fill the room with colour and scent. By bringing the outside in, it will really help create a sense of the season. This works all year around, so in a few months time, why not try chrysanthemums and dahlias.
