    Now is the time to take a tutti-frutti view on life and fill your country home and garden with juicy fruit shades. Pick berry reds, leafy greens and blend with yellow hues. Feature alongside rustic accessories and textural pieces for summerlicious décor.

    Al fresco dining
    Create your very own outdoor cooking station with a bespoke wood fire oven. Station a selection of rustic boards and utensils amongst tea towels in pretty pastel hues to create a summery feel.

    Wow-factor walls
    Keep colour lively from room to room and decorate walls with a zingy stipple-effect wallpaper lined with artfully arranged prints and plates. Use patterns in similar colourful tones to create some consistency in your scheme.

    Love to lounge
    Go ‘all out’ for a fun and funky feel with deckchairs, cushions, bags and mats featuring happy stripes and geometric designs. Use oranges, yellows and reds for a summery vibe to brighten up your day at the beach!

    Dazzling dinnerware
    Create a vibrant atmosphere at your dinner table by mixing and matching colourful crockery. Beautiful bouquets of flowers which complement your colour scheme are sure to wow your guests!
