Getting that outdoor feel, inside
While our gardens may love the summer rain, we find ourselves driven indoors to enjoy them from the other side of the glass. Currently looking out over the countryside of Kent, the garden of England, an array of bold colours and textures shine out through the murk of the current drizzle. Here are a few ideas on bringing that fusion of summer colour and light into the home.
For vibrant colours and textures the new Calligaris Code range has some stunning throws in geometric patterns and light, airy colours. These soft textiles are great transition pieces from outdoor to inside and look good draped over indoor furniture or taken outside for those cosy, clear summer evenings. Also new to the Code range is the striking Damasco mirror, a screen printed mirror with a pattern reminiscent of warm summer nights.
The aptly named Summer storage unit by Bonaldo is a vibrant design with a fun, slim metal frame and a top unit with fold down desk. Seen here in Saffron Yellow, the top unit is divided into tidy sections, creating a bright working or crafting space. Also by Bonaldo is the April, May and June , a collection of striking metal shelving units. These bold, abstract designs look stunning adorned with various florae, with their open and airy design.
For summer, light shades and washes bring that hint of summer colour into the house. The Bontempi Casa side table collection has some beautiful pieces in subtle shades including fresh, pale greens and powder blues. The Bontempi Casa Wizard is a strikingly abstract design in lacquered metal and the Basalto has a delightful wooden screw top set in a colourful lacquered metal base.
Based in Tunbridge Wells, Lime Modern Living prides itself on a contemporary collection that includes the very best in design and innovation to transform the home into a fresh space infused with creativity.
