Get Your Home Summer Ready

Monday, 12 August 2019  |  Admin

Celebrate Summer in the home with everlasting blooms in vivid shades.

That’s the advice from the experts at The Home Company, Skipton’s long-established furniture and furnishings store, who understand the importance of keeping the home ‘on-trend’.

Said Linda Lee, store manager: “Faux flowers have made a comeback onto the interiors scene this season as they’re an easy way to improve your indoor aesthetics with little maintenance. Plus, as manufacturing techniques have improved, it’s increasingly difficult to tell the real deal from the best copies.

“There really is something out there to suit any budget – and if you choose a high-quality option it will last for years!

“Be creative and mix and match species that may not grow in the same season naturally but will add interest to your décor. Or save money by adding to a natural bouquet.”

For those who want to add a splash of Summer hues to their décor, Linda suggests brightly coloured pieces in fuchsia, crisp yellow, pure white and citrus orange.

Said Linda: “Celebrate Summer all year round by incorporating the season’s shades into your interior scheme to add energy, warmth and life to the home. For example, our Moth Orchid products (pictured) are a real hit at this time of year as they really catch the eye.”

If you’re on the hunt for a ready-made bouquet, Home Co stocks a wide choice of complete faux products, including the delicate Serenity & Baker piece (pictured) in cream.

Or fill the home with small splashes of colour by incorporating one-off pieces and scattering in key areas in tall, delicate vases.

Said Linda: “Stop edges from yellowing by keeping out of direct sunlight and dust them with a hairdryer with the heat on low and carefully wipe clean with a damp cloth.”
