    Wanderlust is never so strong as it is during the summer. We spend months planning the perfect holiday, deciding which location to tick off the bucket list, searching for the most picturesque secluded beach and selecting the cutest boutique hotel. But that week or two of holiday bliss just never seems to last long enough…

    This may explain why Pinterest has seen a 35% increase in people pinning holiday destination-inspired interiors during this year’s summer months. Create a wanderlust look in your home and it will feel like you’re on holiday all year round!

    People are loving the Mexican fiesta vibe this summer too, with Mexican-themed interior pins up 200% over the past six months. Bold and bright South American colours and prints are taking the UK by storm this summer, and will liven up any room. Go big with patterned wallpaper or a rug, or follow the cactus trend with cactus-print accessories (or the real plants themselves for true authenticity).
