Instead of doing a complete overhaul this season, here are a few tips on how best to create the right ambiance in tune with this season’s trends without breaking the bank.

Two-tone glam

One of the great things about summer is the burst of colour that it inspires, and this is probably why the colour blocking trend is yet to die out. Play around with eye-catching colours and playful accents for a look that is not too loud but definitely makes a statement. The ercol loveseat is a great piece which also incorporates the dip-dye trend.

50 shades of blue

There are no rules to accessorising so there is plenty of room to experiment. Try one of this season’s favourite colours – blue. From royal to powder tones, blue can add a unique and striking feel to any room; add the Vegas footstool or blue butterfly cushion, for a soft and fresh vibe.

Inconspicuously naturally chic

With the light summer months neutral colours and finishes are a good way to maintain a bright and airy room and give you the best of that summer feeling.

Focus on high quality, understated pieces such as the ercol rocking chair with its sleek and minimalist design. Decorate with light wooden accessories for a complete feel in the room, aim to put together pieces that create a haven of serene and chic timelessness.

Print! Print! Print!

This season it is all about prints, from graphic, animal to floral. Try to keep it simple and tasteful when decorating, as in some cases one print accent is enough to add life to your room of choice.

Cushions are a fun and easy way to update your room, and Furniture Village offers a wide range of choice from rugs and cushions including the Vesperado, Woodland and Blink cushions.
