How to "Summer-ify" Your Home


We’re ready to inject summer brights into every aspect of our lives – including our home. It’s amazing how a few simple tweaks can make all the difference and instantly refresh a room. From throw pillows to pineapple lamps, we’ve handpicked the cutest summery décor that will make your home feel brighter than ever.

A common misconception of redecorating is that you need to spend a fortune on furniture, but trust us – that’s not the case at all. If you’re looking to bring a little summer fun into your home, it’s all about finding inexpensive accents that pack a big punch. Decorative accessories like this gold terrarium are a chic and simply way to embrace the geometric trend and impress your guests. Funky pillows can change up an entire room, especially when you start to incorporate some new colours into your existing palette. Why not get creative and try out a fun pattern for a few months? Picking up some new mugs in an assortment of colours is another easy way to add a bit of personality into your kitchen that will make your morning coffee taste even better.

If you want to focus your decorating efforts on your bedroom, try putting a few eye-catching things in unexpected places. Pineapples are a huge trend right now and we love how cute (and instagrammable!) this neon lamp is. Another bedroom accessory we’re obsessed with is the jewellery plate because it looks so darn pretty and keeps our favourite jewellery right where we can see it. We also recommend scattering a few books around your room to showcase your tastes. We can never have enough fashion books, especially when they have shiny covers and teach us the ins and outs of Parisian style.
