Summer is just around the corner, and its influence on home styling is always on-trend. And no one understands this better than the New Level Homes design team, read about how they bring splashes of summer into the homes they create for the people of Perth.
What does summer in Perth mean
Waking up at sunrise with light streaming in. It’s balmy evenings eating fish and chips by the river. Or long beach days, enjoying a bbq with mates and sticking around to watch the sunset. And picnics and playtime at Kings Park.
It’s the entire relaxed vibe that takes over Perth and encourages smiles from strangers.
What makes a great summer home
An open plan concept with tons of natural light and ventilation, breezeways created from open windows and sliding doors.
It’s that combo of indoor and outdoor living that inspires impromptu casual get-togethers and fun times that make those precious family memories you’ll keep for a lifetime.
Tips to transform your home interior to fit with Perth’s summer vibe
Throw cushions are a cost-effective way to bring summer colour into the home and brighten those post-winter lockdown blues.
For a casual tropical feel nothing says summer more than sheer white curtains blowing in the breeze, let them hang from cornice to floor.
White bed linen is an instant bedroom makeover. Add a light, patterned throw, packing away the chunky knits, and accent cushions in this season’s colour. Or natural linen with white applique for a more sophisticated look.
When designing your brand-new home, make it summery all year round and include a fun coloured splashback and rattan pendant lights to your kitchen to instantly give that summer beach vibe as seen in display home The Beach House.
Tips for accessorising the home
Inexpensive and fun décor items like screen-printed wall art or cushions with palm trees or other retro prints, and timber-framed family photos of beach days are a gorgeous way to include more personal and individual tastes to your design scheme.
Also, beautiful candles scented with coconut, citrus or light florals like Jasmine will make your home smell amazingly summery. And collecting washed up sea glass, coral and shells, displaying them on timber or metal plates is another wonderful way to bring summer styling into your home.
Favourite summer furnishings
Embrace the retro, nothing says relaxed summer like rattan! And it’s easy to include lots or just a little of this modern boho darling with rattan chairs, side tables, lamps or baskets to your home.
Natural and neutral, rattan furnishings will compliment any colour scheme you choose and will pair beautifully with a natural fibre rug. Add some green plants and you’ll have created your very own balanced restful area.
