Living Room Refresh For Summer

Updating your home decor according to the season is a great way to breathe new life into your living space. At this time of year I like to throw the patio doors open and let the outside in; I want to enjoy the warm weather and abundant greenery of the garden. New wall art and a few bright accessories can also be great for a budget-friendly living room refresh for Summer.

I’ve switched the autumnal prints…for tropical deep green hues

When Poster Store asked me if I’d like some new prints for a seasonal update I thought it was the perfect opportunity to give the living room a mini makeover. I’ve switched the autumnal prints (featured in this post) for tropical deep green hues. Hung in the dark oak frames, they really add a sense of the outdoors to the room, especially when placed around house plants. Pete jokes that I’m a plant hoarder because I have so many aloe veras, but they grow so rapidly and I can’t throw them away! The purple plant below was a gift from my lovely friend; I’ve no idea what it is but the colour is beautiful.

Bit by bit, I’ve been adding leopards and cheetahs to the room (if I do it gradually maybe no-one else will notice!). When the child paraphernalia has been expunged from the room I may just get that giant leopard ornament I so badly want! For now though, I’m satisfying my big cat cravings with smaller trinkets. I bought the planter in Matalan but I can’t see the exact same one on the website now. However, there’s a similar one in white and gold that’s on sale for only £3.50! He – or she – seems to approve of the new tropical leaf print! The vase (which I’m using as a planter) is also from Matalan.

You can never have too much animal print in my opinion!

I’ve been slowly trying to remove toys from the living room (there are so many!) now that Isobel is a teenager; that’s an ongoing process, but little by little I’m decluttering. While I was cleaning out a cupboard I found two cheetah print cushion covers that I bought ages ago. I’d been meaning to buy the inserts for them but forgot. Well, hanging the new prints got me started on a room makeover mission so I promptly ordered some and I love my new cushions! They compliment the big leopard print that I ordered in my last batch of wall art from Poster Store. You can never have too much animal print in my opinion!
