How to bring summer into your home

Oh how I love this time of year! Not only is the weather wonderful and the days long and bright, but there seems to be design inspiration at every turn.

I love the style of summer so much that I’ve been gathering images over on Pinterest of what I call ‘Summer House Style‘. It’s the kind of laid back, welcoming style that invites you to come in and take your shoes off. It’s unpretentious and pretty and light and airy.

Think bare floorboards with simple sisal rugs, white slip-covered furniture, jugs of summer flowers, painted furniture in chalky colours and pretty accessories to add that touch of glamour.

Although it’s timely to be talking about Summer House Style while we are enjoying great summer weather, it’s actually a style that can work year round and ensure that the spirit of summer lingers longer than the good weather generally does!

I’m currently working on a summer inspired living room which I’ll publish here next week which I hope will inspire you to introduce some summer style into your home. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy lots of design inspiration on Pinterest!
