Style your home for summer

To celebrate the last of the dreamy summer days and balmy nights, we’ve rounded up the biggest interior trends of the season.

It comes as no surprise that extending your living area to the great outdoors features high on our list. Tap into this trend by creating an outdoor lounge in your patio area or backyard. Outdoor lounges have really taken off this season, and they are the perfect excuse to indulge in long, lazy days enjoying the summer.

We are also loving the affection for all things rural and rustic. This trend conjures up images of holidays in beautiful locations and the warmth and comfort of childhood memories. You can easily recreate the vibe with key furniture and accessories.

And, of course, we can’t fail to mention the colour of the season, representing the fresh vibe of summer. Green in all its shades is the perfect tone for summer, adding a cooling and uplifting touch to your interior style.

The outdoor lounge

Maximise your living space by incorporating an outdoor lounge. Make the central feature a set of comfy furniture, mixing in some accents and finishing touches. Check out the Orlando 4-piece outdoor lounge setting from Harvey Norman. Practical and comfortable, it has everything you need to sit and enjoy the summer.

An umbrella is a must for your outdoor lounge to provide protection from the summer sun, and one with a striking design will add flair. The Sapphire Outdoor Square Umbrella available at Domayne will elevate your outdoor lounge to a style statement. Sapphire Outdoor Square Umbrella, $509 from Domayne

Rustic style rules

This summer, expect to see homeware inspired by rustic chic. Enjoy the feel of natural materials and pieces designed with a “lived in” look. The Provincial Oak Dining Table from Early Settler captures this look in a tribute to French farmhouse style. We loved the curved legs and distressed top.

Go for green

Green is the colour for this summer. From pistachio through to emerald, adding a new piece in gorgeous green is a great way to revive your home’s style. We love the Ecology Ottawa Lichen Stoneware 12-piece Dinner Set from House. Its light green finish will freshen up any dining table.
