Set a Bold and Beautiful Summer Table

For most of us, when we envision our summer holiday, the first thing that comes to mind is eating dinners at beautiful new restaurants overlooking the coast with a cocktail in hand. Although you may not be lucky enough to live next to a beach overlooking the shore, there is no reason you can’t bring that after-sun, holiday meal experience to your home.

We’re taking inspiration from tablescapes of the Mediterranean for hosting this summer, think vibrant colour, juicy designs and bold patterns.

We may be biased, but we think we have created the perfect Sicilian-inspired Summer table for you to recreate this summer. With our Sicilian Lemons Plate, matching Jug and our Set of 6 Amalfi Lemons Round Placemats, you will have the ultimate foundations for an unforgettable summer tablescape that feels like you’ve been transported away to the Italian Coast.

Bring Beach Vibes to Your Home

Although sunny days are few and far between in the UK, there is no reason you can’t make the most of them by bringing the holiday feeling to you this summer. Whether you’re hosting a big garden party or you want to create special memories with your family, we have all the essentials for bringing the beach vibes to you.

Navy striped beach tent

When it comes to interior design, nothing says coastal quite like classic navy and white stripes. That is why we love our Navy Striped Outdoor Tent. It’s ideal for sheltering little ones away from the sun and for gathering underneath with matching deck chairs. Perfect for enjoying the light summer evenings with your friends and family and creating that UK staycation feeling.

Like we have said before, creating a mood is all about adding those extra little details, and no beach vibe would be complete without statement beach towels. Luckily, we have a range of timeless Scalloped Edge Beach Towels in a number of shades such as Green, Pink and Yellow for you to choose from.

Hotel Interior at Home

A great way to create a staycation at home is to bring the hotel feeling to you. Making interior tweaks to your bedroom can completely transform your space to feel as though you are on a 5-star resort all year long. The most important thing to consider when giving your home a hotel makeover is furniture. Good quality, stylish furniture is the core foundation of creating that 5-star feeling.

When we think of a hotel room, the first thing that springs to mind is clean, white shades. Adding light furniture can brighten up the room and add a touch of luxury to your home. We love our Akita Light Wood range for injecting that fresh, bright touch.

To nail the hotel-at-home interior trend, simplicity is key. You just need a handful of high-quality, striking decorative pieces to create your desired luxury aesthetic. We always recommend a big statement mirror for impact and elegant accessories like our Large Puffed Ridge Vase.

Lounge in Comfort

Are you really on holiday if you’re not lounging around the beach or pool whilst soaking up the sun's rays? Bring that feeling home and add comfortable furniture to your garden so you can relax all day and enjoy the summer heat.

Freshen Up Your Home Interior

For maximum impact, we recommend incorporating bold colours and strong patterns like our best-selling Amuse La Bouche Cerise & Fuchsia Ruffle Striped Cushion Cover.

Plant pots and faux flowers are an effortless way to transform your home and cure those holiday blues. With contrasting colours and textures, it's easy to make a statement and brighten up the mood by combining a mixture of different faux flowers and vases. We love creating a custom arrangement by mixing our new Faux Hydrangea Stem with Artificial Pink Dahlia Flower and Faux Eucalyptus Spray.
