What’s Your Summer Decor Style?

Summertime is in full swing and with that comes that incessant urge to embrace the sunshine and enjoy the fresh colours of the season. Whether you have a cottage or vacation home, or are blessed with a back patio for summer staycations, here are a few ways you can spruce up your summer with new furniture and decor:

Accessorize with Sunny Styles

Create an inviting space inside and out with stylish accessories! Coordinate your patio seating area using fresh patterns and vibrant colours – area rugs and toss pillows are the perfect (and cost efficient!) way to bring a whole new, summer-y look to your outdoor space. Using light or bright colours and natural materials is the best way to bring summer to life all around your home and cottage. Just look at the fun range of options below! 

Fabulous Outdoor Pillows

Nothing adds a splash of colour and a pop of fun like a well-placed throw pillow! Practical for comfort but especially great for adding dynamics to a neutral space, these throw pillows from Renwil and RizzyHome are the perfect choice for reviving an old patio set or personalizing a new one.

Spectacular Outdoor Area Rugs

Available from Kalora, Renwil, and RizzyHome, these rugs are made from durable and stain-resistant polypropylene, with a UV treatment to resist fading. Bright colours and patterns, perfect for instilling summer vibes, are available in the polypropylene rugs.

Metallic and Wicker Accents

Finish off the look with mixed metal planters and wicker or rattan baskets. These natural and neutral elements bring a fresh texture to your scene, and fit right in with the nature you love. 

Sunbrella Fabrics

This brand of outdoor fabrics is UV- and fade-resistant thanks to highly UV-stable pigments that go through to the core of the fibre. Engineered to resist mold and mildew, Sunbrella fabrics are easy to maintain, even with the sandy feet, wet towels, and melting ice cream of summer. If dirt and debris do cause mold or mildew to occur, Sunbrella fabrics can be safely cleaned with bleach.

Refurnish for a Coastal Look

If you have a vacation home or a screened in patio that you’re looking to furnish, consider these beautiful collections from Universal Furniture. Light wood stains, casual fabrics in whites and water colours, and plenty of natural materials work together to create a breezy and relaxed look through every room of the home…
