Summer Styling

When it comes to transforming your home for the Summer, it is not always the big changes that make a difference. Small tweaks here and there can also create a big impression.

One of the most popular and easiest ways to transform the appearance of your home is by painting. A fresh layer of paint on your front door and fixing any peeling and cracking paint surfaces instantly adds kerb appeal.

Your hallway is the most used room in your home as well as being the most seen so it is important to keep it clear of clutter. Choose furniture that can double as storage and narrow console tables are a great feature in small hallways as they do not take up too much space.


If you are changing your stairs, make sure to consider how bright your hall is as this will determine what woodwork to choose. If you are keen to update the look of your home then the hallway is the one room where the simplest of changes can make the biggest impact.

Injecting your individual personality into a particular room can be easily done with a paint brush and some paint. Furniture up-cycling is very popular and on trend at the moment.


Choose strong accent colours such as pinks and greens on more quirky pieces to instantly make a statement. If you have a piece of furniture that you feel is old fashioned but you can not part with it, then this would be the perfect solution for you.

Now that Summer is in full swing, bring the outdoors in by using floral prints on window treatments, soft furnishings and wallpaper. Wallpaper used on one wall accompanied by a co-ordinating paint colour on the other walls, will complement the floral design as well as making your room feel bigger.

Changing your interior to suit the season is a great way to reignite your love for your home and when it comes to transforming your home for the Summer, it really is the small touches that make the biggest difference.
