If you can remember back to last month, we featured a post which looked at choosing the perfect look for your summer house.
Now that summer is finally getting into full swing – minus those pesky torrential downpours – you’re probably going to want to spend more time out in the garden, and there’s no better place to kick back and relax than in your elegant summer house!
Now that you’ve (hopefully) established what the exterior of your outdoor hideout will look like, let’s take a look at how you can style the interior!
Figure Out the Purpose
As we mentioned briefly in our previous blog, a summer house can be used in a variety of different ways. Whether you’re looking for a place to stretch out in the shade with a good long book, have somewhere that you can conduct some work, or even just a place to admire your garden, you need to decide what the function of your summer house will be.
Once you have figured this out, you’ll be able to start choosing essential furniture. For offices and reading nooks, bookshelves and comfy chairs are a must, especially if you are planning to spend most of your day in your summer house. Surround yourself with sufficient storage which complements the material that your summerhouse is made out of.
Are You Choosing a Theme
Like most interiors, many people like to choose a theme for their summer house interior. Whether you’re looking to go for a super sleek, modern look, or a more traditional, rustic style, you can pretty much create any style that you want within your summer house – it is your own space, after all!
One theme that we love is the modern, natural feel. Using rattan furniture – which comes in a variety of different shades, by the way – you can create a space which is not only heavily inspired by nature, but looks neat, tidy and modern, too.
Rattan furniture looks neat and compact thanks to the thin nature of the palms that they are made from, meaning that you can create an effortless, attractive interior set-ups even in the smallest of spaces.
The Colour Scheme
As the structure is generally known as a summer house, it’s definitely a good idea to give the interior a light, carefree theme.
You don’t have to think wallpaper and carpets, simply add simplistic splashes of colour here and there through your furnishings; dot a few cushions here and there on your chairs, add summer-themed pictures to your wall, even bring a little nature in by incorporating floral displays using flowers from your garden.
Think summery colours of yellows, reds, oranges, greens and blues; the lighter you can make the interior look, the more comfortable you will feel!
