Summer is the season known for its delicious fruit and celebrating in the sun, and we’re all about bringing that feeling into our home. While winter is known for darker colours and cosy items, summer is all about light and airy colours with tropical accents.

Get inspired and bring the bright, sunny colours into your home with these exciting ideas:

Outdoor setting.

With the balmy summer evenings, it’s time to take full advantage of that patio space. Turn it into your own little summer hideaway by adding a modernised wooden dining table, brand-new bar area and plenty of leafy plants. Add a colourful bowl full of fruit, a tropical-looking table topper that also provides delicious, seasonal snacks for your visitors.

Go for a dip.

When the temperature rises so high that it’s too hot even just sitting around, it’s time to take a dip. Don’t have room for a pool? Then a fantastic stylish seven-seater spa is a great alternative – plus you can use it in the winter too if you turn on the heat! The kids will love spending time with you cooling off in the spa. Don’t forget to be sun safe though and always apply sunscreen.

Tropical decorations.

Bring the feel of the outdoors inside by placing brightly coloured printed pillows throughout the house. These items come in all sorts of funky prints, including fruits, native animals, tropical plants and more. Bring in the essence of summer too with fruity scented candles. Ice-cream sundae patterned quilt covers will provide a ‘cool’ vibe in the kid’s room and are guaranteed to impress.

Turn up the heat on your decorating efforts and revel in the relaxing tropical paradise you will create for your family to enjoy this summer.
