Charley's Summertime Revamp

This entry was posted on 24th May 2011

Searching for some inspiration for a summertime revamp I came across a few finds that I thought were worthy sharing on the Controliss Blinds Blog. So if you are thinking about renovating or decorating this Summer, maybe its worth taking a peek at some some things I'm using to inspire my summer revamp. In my case window blinds, curtains, tables, chairs, colour schemes and other furniture pieces are all on the agenda. There is a lot to play with, many great sources of inspiration, and as is usually the case for me, surfing the web is proving to be one of the most convenient and useful ways for a little keyboard tapping research.

Firstly thinking about colours, summer is all about warm mellow long days, relaxing in the garden with a glass of wine, so chalky pastels are very apt. Take a look at the Dulux Forest Falls range  of gorgeous greens and team with dusky pinks and baby blues. The greens bring a fresh element to the home that is welcome all year round, and creates a calming and tranquil environment.

If you’re thinking about some key furnishings or pieces of furniture, take inspiration from around the world take a peep at Traidcraft recycled furniture and fair trade homeware website . There are lots of beautifully crafted items to look through that will inject lots of ethnicity into many interiors.

Let’s travel back to the 1950’s another seasonal trend for this year. Think muted primary colours, retro prints and furniture, with simple design implementation.

Natural and fresh is another enduring style to pursue this summer, think about natural colours and materials, go for greens and browns, a selection of eye catching accessories and some statement furniture like these gorgeous rattan day beds for those  garden.

So there are just a few ideas I've found so far but keep posted as I have been known to change my mind, especially when it comes to paint colours. That reminds me, I must buy those paint tester pots this time.
