Blooming flowers, chirping birds, sunny skies – when we think of summer, these are the things that spring to mind. We’ve created a moodboard to help you bring your own summery scenes into the home.

Weaving prints into your theme is a really easy way to give your home a bright and sunny update. For a true dose of British wit, drop in some intricate floral patterns. If you’re not a fan of flowers, add zesty, abstract prints for a tropical touch. To avoid over cluttering, focus on key accessories such as cushions, wall art or something as simple as a pouffe. Playing with the finishing touches gives you the flexibility to switch up designs when the weather changes.

If you’re looking to be a little more daring with your décor, ice cream coloured walls will bring a real taste of summer into your home, as well as some serious pastel power. Pale pink hues are very much in vogue right now and provide the perfect backdrop for leafy succulents. If you find pink walls too overpowering, work mint green and sea blue tones into your scheme for a calming, earthy effect.

If you’re after a big burst of colour, anchor your room with a lemon yellow for a splash of sunshine.
