Breathe new life into your space for Summer

by Chris Pana November 23, 2013 0 Comments

If you’re a lover of home decor, you’re predisposition to feel a burning desire to change up your space on a seasonal basis; it comes with the territory and should be embraced (feel free to tell this to your other half when your credit card statement comes in for review).

The good news: breathing new life into a room needn’t be a costly exercise, especially if you carefully consider what really needs amending. The beauty of investing a good chunk of money on your big ticket items early on is that these players can remain your staple pieces in a room - and you can spend very little drizzling them with more affordable designer homewares to lift their appearance. Here’s how!

Cushions on the Couch

Cushions are the easiest way to give a couch or bed a bit of b-b-bounce. Summer is a great opportunity to get daring with hue because bright colours like neon are being utilised far more often than in the cooler months. Tropical cushion cover designs are a foolproof plan also, because they scream Summer and add instant vitality to the room. 

Canvas Art on Walls

Let winter be your sophisticated season, where subdued wall art is celebrated. Come Summer, go for affordable canvas art that goes OTT with pattern and can be moved and mounted with ease. Cluster a few together for maximum colour clashing and have your room feeling fun and frivolous.

Candles and Coasters

Candle holders and coasters are becoming works of art in their own right as the local market becomes more fond of eclectic bibs and bobs. Match the colours in these pieces to the shades in your cushions or wall art and create a room that feels considered and unified (and let these pieces become the stars of the show for Summer).


A Bit of Greenery

Mother Nature is your eternal friend when it comes to interior decor, but you aren’t limited to placing some flowers in a glass vase. Consider other finishes and textures and look for pieces that lift the look of plants, like buckets and holders with bright designs.
