Getting Your Home Suitably Summery

Here are a few ways to get your home suitably summery. Getting you ready for parties, BBQs and general summer evenings.

Flowers

03b25375a9886c14e3ecd51508a3cdfa    02dec3d4e0c83bfc5fa82115c1b4e3cc   204cc1dbf2e8919778a7c3adac69eca5

Flowers are great all year round but during summer they’re even better! Here are three different ways of displaying flowers, adding a little extra to the look.

Scented Candles

9ab48fdc172218dfffdede04ee59ce3f  0247f11778cff4b0e4cb42d58bbb8f16

Theres nothing more annoying in the summer than bugs here is a great way to get rid of them! Fill mason jars with things that bugs don’t like, such as, lemon, orange, cinnamon, lavender or rosemary. Then put in some hot water mixed with citronella oil and finally add a floating candle.

Napkins and Straws 

42181-30041737-30041061-300

Napkins, straws and table clothes are a great way to temporarily get summer into your home. They’re also perfect for a summer BBQ!

5 Interiors We Love

We’ve looked at the bohemian style of decorating for this post. Breaking the rules of pattern and clutter with a bold and busy collection of materials and objects.

c19f57c1c50c47aab39874dc992b594e

Here is a great example of a mix match of pattern and colour working together to get a bohemian style. The different type of soft furnishings make this room seem bright and comfy.

51c0595f00505c02e16ab50baa829f1d

A less obvious bohemian lounge. The pouffes, cushions and rug add touches of bohemian making a plain and modern room different and a little retro.

fc6719430e27cb6a80198183589569d2

The purple table and decorations take hints of colour from the map, making the space bright and fun. The simplicity and chunkiness of the furniture is a tasteful opposite from the delicate look and feel of the map and flowers.

fe795b66deb2291ca621dc6659b6ba5b

Colourful, patterned tiles with the roll top bath is pretty bohemian. Add some candles and a few more plants and you’ve got a full bohemian bathroom.

6b61a39462d6d3c4e97aa0bd92ad48ae

The tree branch, the soft pictures and the greenery hanging down all make this the perfect little corner of bohemian style in the kitchen space.

Our top 5 items on Etsy

We’ve selected 5 items from Etsy that we currently love.

1) Cocktail Chair – Mid Century Modern, Retro, Vintage, Newly Reupholstered

il_570xN.769626415_m1vz

A 1970s cocktail chair that has been restored into this perfect Mid Century Modern feeling piece. The legs have been treated and the seat reupholstered. We think that the colour combo works really well and would look great in a lounge or bedroom.

Available Here : Kallistaa

2) Modern Ceramic Hand Planter

il_570xN.710534075_5c2f

We love different ways of having flowers in our home and this porcelain piece is something we haven’t seen before. Its different, looks great and the plant works so well in it. It doesn’t have to be for plants, you could use it to cup your jewellery, soap, little office bits or candles (with a bit of sand).

Available Here : SCULPTUREinDESIGN 

3) Antique Cream Vintage Frame Set

il_570xN.632032563_2wv0

The frames that this shop sell are a great way to get a salon style of hanging pictures in your home. The sets of frames are made to order, let them know what colour and sizes you want and you’ll get your own unique collection of vintage looking frames.

Available Here : WillowsEndCottage

4) 5 Jar Pendant Light – Mason Jar Chandelier

il_570xN.573738032_for9

A cluster of Mason Jars that have been turned into a light fixture. We like the fact that you can adjust the length of the cords so that you can arrange them as you want. They also have these available with different amounts of jars and different length cords.

Available Here: IndustrialRewind

5) Iris Light Mint Green Minimal Design Table Lamp

il_570xN.734365720_1uv5

Following on from our last post on geometric designs in the home we found this little beauty. This would work as bed side lamp or in a home office space. A fresh and modern piece.
