Our homes provide us with somewhere to eat, sleep and relax, so we thought it only fair to show them a bit of TLC this summer.
To help us with our mighty mission, the team at Ocean homeowner loans teamed up with a handful of bloggers and armed them with the means to splash out on some summer décor for their living space.
Why are we doing this, we hear you wonder. Quite simply, to help people bring a feeling of summer to their own homes so they can enjoy it all year round!
Invite the summer in
If summer has you feeling inspired, why not use the season as an excuse to freshen up your own interiors? Showing your home some love doesn’t have to cost a fortune either. With a mix and match job, you could have yourself a mini Matalan haul for less than £50 and kit your home out with seven or eight new summery items.
Check out our top tips for giving your home a summery feel:
1. Watercolour floral duvet set (£20) 2. LED lights (£8) 3. Ceramic bird house (£5) 4. Ceramic heart lantern (£4) 5. Hanging sign (£6) 6. Mini faux plant pots (£6) 7. Lavender plant tea pot (£6) 8. Tin mug (£3) 9. Butterfly print duvet set (£20)
Seasonal duvet sets
The bed is a big feature within your bedroom, so why not utilise its surface area and instantly inject some summer into your sleeping space by switching to a lighter and brighter colour scheme?
Blooms, glorious blooms
Invest in some fragrant flowers to bring some of the outdoors indoors. Summer is all about long, light days, being in the great outdoors and soaking up the sun (although that’s not always guaranteed in the UK), so try and bring a sprinkle of that into your home.
Add some extra sparkle to those late summer nights spent sat in your garden with some solar powered multi-coloured LED lights – they’ll make those moments that bit more magical.
