Simple Decor Updates For Summer

When it comes to updating the home in time for Summer, it needn’t cost a fortune to transform your space from drab to dazzling.

According to Skipton’s long-established furniture and furnishing store, The Home Company, a few simple tweaks to accessories can do the trick.

Said Linda Lee, store manager: “Sometimes it’s the quick and easy décor updates that can be the best way to change the feel of a room. It’s great fun creating new looks with simple swaps and changes.”

Linda suggests you opt for a white base on the walls and floor to help increase the natural light.

A large wall mirror is also a great way to breathe life into a room – it will reflect the light around an area to create a feeling of openness. Consider a round mirror such as Martson Mirrors as pictured – this season’s smartest buy, they add instant interest to any space.

Change your cushions. The most versatile of soft furnishings and available in so many sizes, shapes, colours and patterns – they have an incredible ability to switch up the feel of a room. 

Said Linda: “Pastel shades are very on-trend and a great Summer hue. Incorporate cushions in shades of baby blues, dusky pinks and light orange shades. We’ve recently updated our offering to include more of-the-moment patterns and colours and prices start from a reasonable £14.95.”

Creating a wall gallery adds interest and a talking point too. Use photos, record covers, or favourite prints to fill a blank space and add personality to a room.

Or add a splash a colour with faux flowers like the complete double moth orchid in magenta as pictured – another great way to quickly add colour and shape to a living room. The Home Company offers a selection of quality faux plants online and instore.

Said Linda: “If you want to give your room a total overhaul but are limited on budget, consider rearranging your furniture. It’s the perfect way to give your space a new feel and also presents an opportunity to deep clean and declutter surfaces.”
