As the seasons change I like to change up a few things around the home much like how you would update your winter wardrobe to your summer wardrobe. I was contacted by homesense and TKMaxx to go into store and pick out easy ways in which I can update my home for summer.
Firstly I wanted to focus on the bedroom - I keep the walls and bedding very neutral with a lot of white, this makes it super easy to change up through the seasons. As you can see from a previous bedroom post where I injected some colour through accessories. Recently I have really been loving the botanical trend in homeware, the botanical trend is about creating a light and airy feeling with statement prints against a white wall so when I spotted this beautiful bug printed cushion I just had to snap it up! The cushion was the centre to this design and helped to pull together the other accessories.
You can change up photos or artwork to tie in your theme or just to update the space, I used delicate floral and butterfly prints which I have picked up at car-boots and charity shops. Adding indoor plants, succulents or flowers in the home instantly adds that burst of nature making it feel updated, fresh and summery.
I also created a little DIY of my embroidered bee in gold onto a white cushion cover, I love how this works so well with the statement printed cushion I picked up in a local homesense store. I am thinking of starting a little range of embroidered homeware to go alongside my clothing and accessories !
would you guys be interested in embroidered bee cushions too?
So this summer let loose, do not be afraid to be daring and create your own botanical garden within your home. Homesense and TKMaxx is a great place to start and each store holds lots of different treasures so you never know what you will uncover.
