There’s nothing quite like a spot of redecorating to say hello to summer – whether you decide to repaint your whole house or shop for some new, colourful accessories it’s the perfect way to brighten up your life just in time for the brightest season of the year.


Add some colourful accents to your neutral decor – think cushions, candles, throws and curtains. Opt for beautiful brights like fuchsia, turquoise, lime green and buttercup yellow to really make your home come alive. Updating accessories is an inexpensive way to makeover your home and give it a fresh new look without breaking the bank! Think outside the box when it comes to finding them. If you live around London, take a stroll down Portobello Road and go digging in the little shops and stalls you find there. If you aren’t so lucky, head online and check out website like Itsy for some real inspiration


Nothing says cosy quite like a brand new rug. Hand-woven vintage rugs are hot this season – choose bold patterns and Persian colours for an appealing, welcoming look. Vintage Hand-woven rugs are famous everywhere, and these rugs look great on wood flooring. If you’re looking for something a bit more subtle, why not opt for vintage rugs to brighten up even the dullest summer day? You no longer have to stick to boring colours and cheap rugs.

Wall stickers

You could add a touch of colour to your walls by redecorating – if repainting or papering seems like too much hassle and expense then why not buy some funky wall stickers? There is a huge range available, from small, delicate butterfly motifs to inspirational quotes and huge decals of the New York skyline – the sky is the limit! Wall stickers are affordable and easy to apply; what’s more they are also easy to remove, so you won’t be left with unsightly walls if you decide to take them down!


Flowers bring the outdoors in, and there’s nothing like a fresh bunch of flowers to make you feel summery. Whether you buy a bouquet from your local florist, collect some beautiful wildflowers on a summery walk or simply cut your own from your garden, flowers look simply beautiful in any room. For an alternative to fresh flowers, artificial blooms are a great choice – there are so many well-made artificial flowers around today that most people won’t even be able to tell your flowers aren’t real! What’s more they are low-maintenance and they won’t ever die, so they’ll look great year round. Huge, vibrant displays look great as a focal point in the lounge or adorning the centre of your dinner table.

It’s easy to bring a happy, carefree summer vibe to your home this year – just add some colour.
