Accessorise Your Home This Summer

Stylish accessories are the perfect way to transform your home from drab to dazzling this summer.

Linda Lee, manager of Skipton’s long established furniture and furnishing store The Home Company, has some top tips for buying on-trend accessories for your interior. “Rather than completely redecorating, why not update your home with eye-catching accessories that will give your space a new lease of life without breaking the bank.”

She suggests breaking up a neutral decorating scheme with a striking print, such as the Spring Floral Pods artwork available in either framed panels or canvas.

The Dijon throw is the ideal way to give your room some energy, adding a splash of colour with mustard yellow or duck egg blue. You can also wake up a dark corner by adding a stylish wire weave lamp featuring twinkling fairy lights for instant glitz; or revitalise an ordinary wall by displaying a striking floral print.

A rug is the perfect partner for tiled or hardwood floors and can instantly update any room. Go for the Whisper collection, with its gorgeous thick pile that has a stunning light reflecting sheen.

In the living room, a statement chair is a quick fix and can instantly draw the eye. The Malo Hana Carbon features delicate florals that can be teamed with the majority of decorating schemes. If you’re wanting a more substantial update, invest in a few key furniture pieces that will stand the test of time. Try the Dales collection, an extensive range of sofas and chairs that combine style, comfort, quality and value for money.

Said Linda: “For added glamour try floor or table lamps in metal finishes and cushions in deep rich shades of velvet to create an on-trend chic industrial feel.”
