Bring your home out of hibernation for Summer!

As we approach May and the temperatures are tentatively creeping upwards again, it’s time to start thinking about how you can transform your home from a cozy winter cavern to a breezy, summery retreat. Just like with your wardrobe choices in the summer months, different rooms within your house will need to ditch the layers to combat the heat. Here we tell you how to infuse a bit of summer lovin’ into your abode.

Your thick 13.5 tog duvet won’t seem so cozy when you’re tossing and turning and kicking it off you in the hot, sticky nights. If you don’t have an all season suitable duvet, where you can add/remove part of it to increase/decrease togs accordingly, we recommend picking up our 4.5 tog Star Buy Hollowfibre duvet.

In the winter, putting up thick, heavy curtains is believed to preserve heat meaning a saving on fuel bills. When the good weather rolls around however, these thick curtains are no longer needed and can be replaced with lighter drapes that let the natural light flood your home. You may want to simply opt for brighter colours and less dense material, or you can opt for a set of voiles instead to give a delicate, airy feel to your home.

Of course the most exciting thing about summer is the array of tantilising scents and smells it brings. Recreate these in your bedroom and living room with one of our diffuser sets in a refreshing scent of your choice. The delightful Honey and Vanilla or clean Fresh Linen scents are essential for summer. Cushions are also a cheap and cheerful way of transitioning your home through the seasons. Floral printed cushions are ideal for summer and with our Barcelona and Kendal ranges we have cushions to match all colour schemes.
