The Sunshine Shades for your Summer Home

With summer just around the corner, there are plenty of ways to give your home an uplifting splash of summer brightness at very little cost. Whether you want to brighten up your interior, or add a little colour to your exterior, here are a few fab tips to spruce up your home for the sunshine season.

This season’s colour trends are bright, breezy and will breathe a new lease of life into your post-winter abode. Get the sunflower shades, warming tones and fresh hues into your décor palettes and love colour this summer!

Sunshine yellows


Yellow tones have a particularly summery and fresh feeling to their appearance. They offer a bright and clean colour option for any modern or traditional home, offering more time-honoured décors a contemporary take on more traditional styles in a complementary manner. Yellow is a great accent colour for cushions, throws, rugs and accents in the kitchen, living room or dining room and is easily matched with other light and bright shades including crisp whites, sky blues and rich darks.


Why not be a little daring with your décor and add a touch of pattern to your home with printed or embellished tile options? Patterned tiles are an extremely modern and stylish touch in any home, and can offer a totally unique and new aesthetic to any room.

Yummy oranges


Oranges, often associated with darker burnt hues, is now set to be the must-have colour of summer 2014. Bright and vivid orange palettes are the new style for the sunshine season! Mixed up with sharp and good-enough-to-eat primary shades, this colour-combo is a match made in heaven.


Orange isn’t necessarily thought of as a colour choice within design, however, all this is set to change with perfectly textured, sleek and shiny or matted large-scale tile ranges. Orange is the must-have for any on-trend and chic-colour styling!

Fresh grass greens


Green, a favourite of the primary colours, makes a bold return this season with bright luscious limes, freshly-mowed-lawn greens and gorgeously natural forest shades. Green can add a strong sense of style within a room, and be a complementary shade to both lighter and darker palettes (shade depending).


Greens are a fantastic choice for injecting that touch of natural shine to a home during the summer months, and are great alongside house plants and offer a ‘nature-indoors’ touch of class. Lime greens are the ideal colour choice for any modern kitchen or bathroom tile option to give your home a new lease of colour life and appearance.
