Having sun shining in our offices (albeit for the last 3.5 days) has got me in the mood for some summer home decor inspiration. From small additions such as splashes of colour or fun patterns into your any room to new furniture and cute kitchen units – there is many ways to brighten up even the dullest summer days in Scotland, whether you have small budget or splurging out to revamp your home – here is some ideas.
The quickest and easiest way to to pop in some colour is added smaller items into the home such as accessories – frames with bright prints, cushions and throws, prints can all be found with little expense. And then stored in and around the house to swap away for the cold winter months.
If you’re up for a slight amount of DIY, grab your paint brush and go bold by adding neon colour trends to your home. Painting features you already have – such as fireplaces, doors, radiators is a fabulous way to add a stylish streak to any room.
I have always been a little hesitant when it comes to patterns in the home, especially on a large scale. But there is something about a feature bathroom that I LOVE. It is adding a small bold room – while subtly hidden from the rest of the home?
If you commit to paper – commit fully – no more feature walls. Don’t put an accent wall in a tiny room. It will only make it look smaller.
And FINALLY, the biggie. This is a big commitment and can be costly. But adding individuality to your home in such a fun way. 93 Main Road, Elderslie is my favourite home on our market right now. (Are we allowed favourites?) They have successfully and beautifully added colour to their traditional house on a subtle scheme, yet big job.
Adding colour doesn’t need to be bold or bright. It can be soft & cute just like above. Coloured doors aren’t anything new. Yet front doors, are often the first thing someone will notice about your house. And if you want to add a sense of your own style to your home, then painting exterior doors is a simple and effective way to change the look of your house.
