Summer is all about spending more time outdoors, but sometimes you want a room where you can dine, relax and enjoy without worrying about flies and wasps getting in your food!

There are hundreds of ways to create beautiful rooms in your home, but a great way to do so is by adding an extension. Whether it’s a conservatory, an outhouse or a sunroom, extensions are a cost-effective way of bringing the outdoors in and making the most of your home.

High Contrast Colour

Behr reports that high contrast colour choices are in this Summer, with chromatic brights mixing with dark, moody colours to create beautiful popping effects.

Although you might not think it, dark colours are great for creating depth in smaller rooms, and big pops of bright colours envelope rooms and extenuate the room’s architecture and style.

Bring in the Trees

Adding a touch of rich brown wood can transform the look of your home. Whether you decide to invest in an old oak dining table or settle for a smaller addition like a wooden bowl or accessory, the wood stuff is great for giving your home a sophisticated, refined look.

Ombre Designs

You just can’t beat a pastel ombre design, whether on a curtain, in a picture frame on as a wallpaper. This soothing, summery look can be easily achieved on any budget without clashing with your existing home decor – add a pink and white ombre vase in your kitchen or an ombre cushion in your bedroom to change the entire feel of your room.

If you’re feeling adventurous, take inspiration from fashion designers who recently began experimenting with ombre painted furniture, which looks incredible in any modern home.

Take it to the Beach

For a more traditional summer interior, you just can’t beat the tried and tested beach style. It’s simple to execute and can be easily tweaked year-round to match the season. To bring all of the traditional aspects from the beach into your home, add a touch of blue to your walls and focus on turquoise, coral, white and grey colours for a soothing and bright home.

If you want an entirely free way to bring the beach indoors, find some driftwood to turn into a decorative display, or paint on your family name and use it as a wall hanger. The best thing about a beach-style interior is that there are no rules, and you can adjust the style to your needs.
