Get your living room summer ready

If the recent sunny spell has got you reaching for the pastels and floral prints in your wardrobe, you may want to extend the summery vibe to your home décor. But no one wants to spend a fortune on doing their house up when there is ice cream to be bought, so here are a few tips to bring the joys of summer into your home without spending every penny you’ve got:

Swap plain accessories for colours

You don’t need to spend a fortune on getting your living room repainted. If you buy a few inexpensive cushions in bright colours like yellows, and mint greens, and swap them with your usual sofa dressings, your whole room will look brighter. A light coloured blind, like this pastel pink one, is a great idea as it not only adds a splash of fresh, summery colour, it also lets a good amount of sunshine in, even when its giving you some privacy.

Flowers are shorthand for summer

If you are not the type of person who would usually have a vase of flowers on the kitchen table, it might be time to give it a go. Flowers can really have an impact on your mood, and can remind you to get outside and enjoy nature – something we could all benefit from doing more often! If you don’t want to spend out on a vase, fear not! An old jar, perhaps from a spaghetti sauce or some pickles, washed out and filled with water makes a good vintage-inspired container for your summer blooms.

Clear the air with candles

You may associate candles with cosiness and heat, but with all the fresh scents they come in nowadays, you’d be mad not to let them into your home. They’ll cost you less than a fiver, and your nose will be telling you its summertime in no time!
