Elinore’s Top Tips For Styling Your Home This Summer Season

By Elinore Rositano

With summer quickly approaching, there is no better time to brighten up your home and give it some much-needed TLC. Our wardrobes change with the seasons and so should our home décor!

Redecorating doesn’t have to be time-consuming or break the bank, a refresh can easily be achieved by making a few simple changes that will dramatically elevate the appearance of your home.

COLOURS
This summer, think bold. Block colours are trending, revamp your living areas using splashes of bright yellow, bold blues and vibrant greens. This colour palette is easy to style and compliments neutral timber and stone features.

Don’t be afraid to try something new – mix and match colours that you wouldn’t usually pair, this will help create a quirky and unique environment.

ACCESSORIES
It’s time to ditch the heavy winter throws and replace them with brighter summer accessories. In living areas and bedrooms, start by replacing your cushions and wall art.

Graphic prints add life to stark walls whether they are mounted or rested on floating shelves. Use your new colour palette for inspiration and think about investing in an indoor plant. Adding a fresh fern in a bright pot is an easy, inexpensive and on trend way to freshen up a space – just make sure you choose a plant that is appropriate for growing indoors!

Liven up your bathroom with a vase of flowers and stack of vibrant towels. Kitchens can be revamped using colourful table runners and placemats. If you’re an entertainer, consider purchasing a vibrant dinner set.

OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING
In summer, Australians love nothing more than a backyard gathering with family and friends. Outdoor areas are just as fun to redecorate as the inside (and give you the perfect reason to host a BBQ).

Embrace summer by using bohemian inspired décor and tying in colours used in your interior space. Outdoor rugs, distinctive lighting fixtures, and bright cushions will give your backyard the perfect relaxed summer vibe.

If you’re willing to invest, caged hanging chairs are the ultimate statement piece and provide the perfect spot to relax during your summer holidays.
