Ice cream… the seaside… holidays in exotic locations, whatever the notion of summer conjures for you, bring its essence into your home with light, bright and cute decorations.
Pastels, botanical prints and zesty wall paint all scream summer. But if you’re not in the market for a complete home renovation, then summery touches here and there will work just fine.
1.Multi-coloured, double-walled glasses
A set of these gorgeous glasses with their impossibly cute floral design, will inject pops of colour into your kitchen. The double-walled glass mug is a must have for kitchens (we explain why here) and these divine versions are the ultimate summer kitchen accessory.
Mugs – ceramic or glass – collect stains easily. Make sure you follow our steps to keep your mugs in tip-top condition.
2.Fluffy, white peony stems
Did you know the peony has one of the shortest flowering seasons? This is why it’s a particularly expensive plant – that is, if you’re buying a fresh peony.
Available in white or in a pretty pastel pink, our faux peonies bring summer lux to any room. Everlasting and low maintenance, you can keep them out all summer and replace them in the colder months with our winter eucalyptus stems.
It’s outdoor entertaining season which means time to chop up the strawberries, cucumber and mint and throw them in this heart-speckled jug with a splash of Pimms.
Everyone knows drinks taste better when they’re poured from a beautiful jug (or carafe – we have those too).
4.Elegant glass drizzlers
Similarly, nothing screams summer more than alfresco salads drizzled with olive oil and balsamic.
Our drizzlers come in a set of two ready to take pride of place on your garden table.
Decant your best oils and vinegars from their ugly plastic packaging and show them off in our twin drizzling bottles.
5.Charming paulownia trays
The wood from the majestic paulownia tree makes for beautifully rustic and sturdy furniture.
These gorgeous paulownia trays come in either black, white or natural wood. Use them to carry drinks through to the guests in the garden on a summer’s eve.
Or why not keep them as a condiment tray to easily bring all your condiments to the dining table?
6.Stylish bamboo and glass serving set
Having water on display at the table will remind everyone to stay hydrated in the summer heat. But don’t just display it in any old vessel, make the most basic of drinks stylish with our sumptuous glass jug set with bamboo toppers.
Fill up the jug in the morning, store it in the fridge et voila, chilled, refreshing water for the rest of the day.
