The cold, freezing Winter months are long behind us and now it’s onwards and upwards with bright sunshine, longer days and a little alfresco dining … ok, ok, reality check – t’s the UK so we ALL know we never have any guarantees but let’s keep positive.
Here are a few of our top tips for bringing a little sunshine inside:
- REPLACE YOUR CUSHIONS One of the first things we always advise is to bring in some light, neutral colours on your sofa. Put the dark, velvet winter toned cushions aside and freshen up your sofa with pretty linen, silk pieces in pale grey and duck egg blue tones. Here are some of our favourites:

- FRESH FLOWERS Another style tip – obvious as it may sound – fill a vase with white roses, peonies, orchids or even a bunch of casual stocks or blossom. They bring instant life and a fresh feel to a room.
We particularly love to fill our silver bowls full of fresh flowers or little orchid plants (if you haven’t got the time to keep replacing fresh flowers, use top quality faux flowers instead). This gives an instant glamorous look to a coffee table.

- FRAGRANCE Fresh summer scents are a quick and easy way to create a calming atmosphere in a room. Our luxury candles look super stylish and our BIANCA candle includes notes of melon, rose, jasmine and lemongrass which make a reviving combination. All of our fragrances have been lovingly blended to calm your mind and soothe your senses. Absolutely perfect for this time of year ….

- LANTERNS Should the British weather allow you to do a little alfresco dining (we have managed two evenings so far this year – honestly!) our pretty Marseille lanterns look absolutely gorgeous when lit in the evening.

- MAKE IT EASY It’s (hopefully) barbecue weather so make it easy; these rattan trays are essential for carting cutlery, napkins and outdoor bits and bobs to and from the kitchen.
- TREAT YOURSELF! Of course should your budget allow, treat yourself to one of our favourite sofas in a neutral linen or pale grey.
