With summer underway, many of you may be thinking about making some changes. Perhaps ripping off the duvet to replace it with some sheets, or full on redecorating. Out with the old and in with the new as they say, and what better to have a spring clean and inject some beauty into your home. time to beautify your home than now? If you still have Christmas lights hanging around the windows (I only took mine down last month, argh), then its probably time to shake up! From celebrity bedding sets to new colour schemes, here’s a few ideas to achieve some style.
I absolutely love seeing everything in black and white, and I'm so glad it works just as well indoors. Projecting a sleek sense of style, monochrome is ideal for those hoping to achieve the minimal look. It’s simple, classic and exudes sophistication; a trend which would work wonderfully in any home.
From a lads pad to student city living, this look is easy to recreate. Sprucing up the bedroom? Then opt for oak white wooden flooring, monochrome bed linen and mirrors to accessorise. For me? A simple touch of red or yellow, too.
For those with a taste of the exotic, why not go continental and use décor ideas from across the globe as a source of creativeness? From animal prints to wrought iron sculptures, there are an abundance of tasteful embellishments to flavour your house and most of it can be found in Ikea! One trend that recently caught the attention of audiences in the fashion world was oriental style. Loved for its unique designs, bold colours and stunning embroidery, inspiration from the East could be the perfect addition to your summer home.
In terms of colour, think neutral tones brought to life with a vibrant splash of paint (for instance, brightening a crisp white wall with a splash of orange or red, yes please)! And to finish the look, you could invest in a shoji screen or a patterned vase. The little things make the biggest difference!
For those of you who love nothing more than indulging in a little ‘me time,’ opting for luxury this summer could be just what your house needs. Taking rich and opulent materials from the catwalk and bringing them into the home, this trend really allows you to enjoy the glitz and glam of celeb living. Like what you hear? Then buy some glamorous silk bedding, plush leather settees, and furnishings that guarantee to give your home some extra sparkle.
I'm planning to add a statement mirror to brighten things up a bit, and we've just shelled out on some egyptian cotton bed linen too, to up the comfort factor - I can't wait to go to bed tonight!
