Summer is perfect for pastel colours in the home, tones like blush pink are great if you’re keen to give your homely space a hint of subtle colour. Pastel shades work well together so match it up with subtle shades of blue, mint greens and yellow for an effective, yet easy, look.
House plants are great all year round, but especially in summer, bringing the outdoor space in with tones of green throughout the home can really make the space stand out from the crowd. If you don’t have a garden, this is also a great opportunity to have your own personal slice of nature to enjoy, regardless of whether you pick large leafy plants, or small terrarium.
