10 Easy Breezy Summer Homewares
There’s nothing like a seasonal update to put a spring in your step around the home, whether it’s a new cushion combination on the sofa, updated wall art, or a few new sculptural pieces to display on the bookshelf. Having achieved serial-seasonal-update status long ago, we know the best way to keep your home fresh without doing an entire revamp four times a year is to swap out a room’s smaller pieces, allowing you to make a big impact without breaking the bank or waiting around for hours on end for furniture delivery. Here are the pieces we’ll be incorporating into our homes this summer.
Sogno Linen Cotton Sheet Set
These super-soft sheets help you stay cool on warm nights, thanks to their unique blend of linen and cotton - two of the most breathable natural fibres known to man. The bright Carrara White and the delicate Amore Blush both provide great summer vibes, especially when paired with the trademark linen wrinkle. Cool and chic? Absolutely.
Bamboo Cotton Quilt Cover Set
With your sheets sorted, it’s time to turn your attention to the outer layer of bedding and there’s nothing better than this silky soft quilt cover set in crisp, fresh Gelato Mint. Look and feel aside, the bamboo fabrication is also enticing thanks to its moisture wicking, anti-microbial and odour-resisting qualities.

Whether it’s one of the famous Aquabumps shots of Sydney’s Bondi Beach, a Ken Done print or something you’ve managed to capture yourself, hanging something unmistakably beachy on your wall is a great way to embrace the season. Maximise its currency by hanging it in a wooden frame, giving a nod to the natural and organic interior trend we’re tipped to see explode in the coming year.
Take the natural trend a little further by re-housing your indoor plants in terracotta planters. Add updated interest by opting for interesting shapes and textures, like this terracottabowl or this terracottahoney pot.
Positano Fringed Towels
These fringed towels transport you straight to the cliffside Mediterranean village they’re named after, conjuring up images of colourful houses overlooking the sparkling blue sea. They’re also soft and highly absorbent, making them an excellent option for sunburnt skin and humid days.
Luxury Cotton Velour Beach Towels
Ever wished you could find a beach towel that was: a) perfectly sized; b) sand-resistant; and c) ridiculously good looking? Look no further than this year’s Luxury Cotton Velour beach towels range. Add a colourful stack to the open shelving in your laundry or drape a couple over the wicker basket at your front door for a hit of bold, practical design.
Bohemian chic meets coastal cool in the best possible way with these intricate pieces. Imagine them scattered across your sofa, lining your bay window or taking up residence on your outdoor setting. If you’re having trouble picturing it, check out the collection on Pinterest for some inspiration.
Indoor Climbing Plants
Speaking of Pinterest, the app’s trenddata shows climbing plants are gaining popularity this year, with saves for indoor vines growing by 260% over the past 12 months. Our favourite execution of the trend is growing a lush green vine over a detailed wire frame and hanging it on the living room wall as art.
Blood Orange and Grapefruit Scented Soy Wax Candle
Zesty and refreshing, one of these soy wax candles will fragrance any room in your home perfectly throughout the warmer months. The soy base means the candles burn longer (around 65 hours in total), cooler and emit much less smoke than those made from paraffin wax. As an added bonus, citrus scents have been shown to reduce anxiety and lift mood, making lighting these particular candles an excellent idea as you navigate your way through the often-stressful work-days blues.
Don’t just rely on your flowers to brighten things up; display them in a colourful vase. Seafoam blues, paint-flecked creations and boldly-patterned pottery are all excellent options for the season, adding a touch of fun to any arrangement.
