Summer Breeze Interior Inspiration
We've had a great few weeks of hot weather so why not bring the element of summer into your home this season. Add a ray of summer sunshine to your home with a pop of yellow, fresh white finishes and neutral tones. Adding that hint of lemon to your interior will give an instant lift and what's even more perfect is this trend will take you straight through to the Autumn season where you can then introduce warmer wood tones and even pops of black.
Yellow Interior Inspiration
The colour yellow can sometimes be a little overwhelming, whilst this colour usually connotes fresh happy cheerful feelings, when it comes to interiors it can be seen as a bit intimidating and over the top. However, with the right toning and the use of complimenting accessories this colour can be used as a great update and can really awaken your home. The yellow spectrum from subtle lemon to sunflower yellow is a calming colour so add it to your interiors for a calming ambience.
This colour is also extremely versatile it can be incorporated into any home from industrial converted mills and country cottages to simple terraces and even period properties. Any room in the home can benefit from a ray of yellow. Painting your hallways in a pale yellow hue will immediately give yourself and visitors a happy, sunny disposition as soon as they walk in. Check out our Cheerful Summer Interiors pinterest board for more great examples of how to use yellow tones successfully.
Lighting up your Summer Breeze Interior
The key to a summer breeze interior is light, so make sure you keep this flowing through to the evening with lots of light fittings. In keeping with the summer vibe it's best to choose muted white and cream accessories, this will create a calming flow throughout the room. Our range of Fisherman Lighting includes a selection of cream and off-white fittings such as our beautiful classic cottage style Tees Outdoor Spun Cowl Fisherman Style Wall Light and our Fisherman Rise and Fall Cream Pendant Light. The aim is to create a relaxed atmosphere so try to keep your colours in the same colour family such as creams, whites, yellows.
To help you get this warm summer interior in your home we've pulled together some key pieces, introducing wooden accessories into a yellow interior scheme is ideal as it adds an earthy, organic touch, choose sun-bleached or blonde wood finishes to keep to the neutral tone of the interior. Our Fergie 1 Light Uplighter Crescent Wall Light - Light Wood features a subtle light wood frame holding a soft opal glass shade which hives a diffused glow of light, pair with our matching Flush Ceiling Light to compliment. With this organic element you can then introduce plants such as daffodils, sunflowers or go all out and invest in a stunning lemon tree.
With a yellow canvas its best to keep your accessories subtle and in neutral finishes so as to not overwhelm your interior space with too much colour. For lighting we've chosen our fisherman cream collection, these fittings offer a mix of both industrial and country style. Choose from our three cream fisherman pendants, our Dylan Restoration Diner Fisherman Style Pendant - Cream offers a static drop pendant with a ridged dome shade with an enamel finish or go for our Fisherman Rise and Fall Cream Pendant Light for higher ceiling homes and busy kitchen areas, with a pulley mechanism you;re able to adjust the length of the fitting to suit your surroundings.
For rented homes or spaces in need of a quick update choose our Joshua Easy to Fit Cage Ceiling Shade Cream, this fitting features an industrial style grill and will fit easily over you existing light bulb.

For accent lighting choose a cream shade or glossy enamelled task lamp in neutral tones and keep your summer interior brighter for longer. For autumn months begin to introduce deeper wood colouring and orange hues and when the festive season comes around you can add hints of gold and sequins for a glitzy winter.
