Summer Lovin’

Put on those shades & pour a drink. It’s summer; where every hour is happy hour!

Beach trips, pool parties, spontaneous bush walks & late nights on the porch with friends, the warmer seasons in Australia is where it’s at. Fellowship and hosting is at the heart of our culture, which makes our homes a hub for more than just our families big or small!

Looking around your home you can notice the spaces which are used the most when you’ve got people over. Whether it be the lounge room, the kitchen or your outdoor space, there are ways to spice up your home this summer to bring more light, colour and fun to what could otherwise be a dull or monotonous area.

This month we want to inspire you to enjoy your time while entertaining, cooking and exploring in what we think is the best time of the year!

Style Tip

These days, new house builds can sometimes lack colour in their design processes. White walls, backsplashes, neutral brown flooring and cream curtains can make your furniture colour choices follow suit. Before you know it your home can become a neutral wonderland—which also isn’t a bad thing! Though, if you’re drowning in confusion of all the shades of white, search for a textured rug in a bold colour to put in the lounge room to start off. Next grab a bold art print for the walls, and then maybe paint a feature wall down the hallway for extra effect. The possibilities are endless!
