Bring Summer Inside
- 22 January 2018
Now the Christmas tree and decorations are packed safely away for another year, take some time to reflect on your living or sleeping spaces and consider creating a relaxing holiday atmosphere in your home to embrace the summer season. Hot, sunny days means throwing all the windows and doors open to allow a cooling airflow and bringing the outdoors inside.
Conservatory areas that may have been underused in the cooler months lend themselves to many fresh decorating options. Choose smart hardwearing furniture in bold colours and stripes, we have some stunning tropical and bold floral fabrics this summer so even consider reupholstering your old furniture if you love a classic look.
Floors work hard in the summer with extra traffic and plenty of indoor-outdoor flow. Think of the type of flooring that will cope well with foot traffic from your garden into your living areas. RJ Eagar has a huge range of laminate flooring to provide a practical solution that can compliment or continue through into other rooms in your house. Try a new approach with bamboo flooring, a hard wearing and sustainable wood source, the sandy tones can really add light to a room and open up small spaces.
Don’t forget to soften your hard flooring with feature rugs are available in a wide range of easy care materials such as jute and wool, bold colour and textures easily update and freshen a room.
RJ Eagar have a wide range of on trend linen and voile fabrics to create dreamy drapes for every room in your home. Luxaflex Countrywood shutters provide a practical, durable and timeless summer look, which can be custom made for your windows or doors allowing airflow into your room in summer or effective heat and noise insulation in the cooler months.
For an overall lighter feel in your home, consider white walls, furniture and décor items with complimentary summer shades – greys, blues, greens and pastel options for cushions and light-weight throws to easily update the atmosphere in your living or bedroom areas. Mirrors are great for deflecting light and glass bowls and vases are ideal candleholders for balmy summer evenings or displaying treasures collected at the beach from your summer holiday.
