Fill your house with summer

With a fresh, summery feel the new home collection from House of Fraser is lighter, brighter and more colourful than ever. From sugared pastels through to bold brights, colour plays a pivatol role in setting the mood for the season.

Pink is playful across dinnerware while fuchsia is fun in outdoor accessories. Whether it’s a bold print on bedlinen or a block colour on a cushion, no home is complete without a nod to the rainbow hues.

So ditch the greys, chose beige with caution, and embrace the new summer palette to brighten up your home! In the bedroom a multi-coloured floral print design on white has a delightful hand-painted appearance that looks like it has come straight from the garden onto the bed!

The mix of greens, reds, blues and purples are reminiscent of an artist’s oil palette with a bold feel and bohemian charm.

On Linea by Portmeirion dinnerware small-scale florals have a much softer feel with a blurred-edge ‘watercolour’ look in pretty pastel colours. Add cupcakes and mix with swirl design glassware for a distinctly vintage feel.

The look continues across home accessories as traditional floral designs on cushions are modernised with a mix of coloured stripes, polka dots and ditsy florals. Pretty birds and butterflies flutter across vases, frames and trinket boxes for a whimsical, fairytale look that both young and old will love.

In the kitchen country farmhouse styling offers an unpretentious feel with chunky mugs, textured surfaces and warm earth tones to appeal to the senses. Serve up a rustic feast on gorgeous ‘pebble oak’ chopping boards and an oak dip dish that are great for everyday use or bigger affairs.

A range of chunky black stoneware dinnerware is the perfect choice for lazy mornings at home with a must-have pot of tea and a large round of toast – marmite optional.

A new range of Linea oven-to-tableware with curved edges in a soft clay tone oozes rustic charm and is bound to impress the guests and make life easier for you.

Liven things up in the garden with a vibrant palette of zingy brights. Anything goes in accessories – oversized floor cushions in pink, orange and blue provide the perfect base for a range of brightly coloured candle jars and darker stripe cushions. In outdoor dining, blue, teal and clear acrylic pieces offer a more sophisticated feel yet can be mixed and matched for a fun summer vibe.

Keep things simple in the bathroom with a pared back colour palette of warm neutrals. A rose-coloured crackle glaze on the inside of a tumbler, soap dish and tray has an antiqued look that is subtle and soft. New Aura towels sit perfectly in a sanctuary environment; a bold geometric design in red and black looks striking on the side of a plain stone bath while the ‘Flight’ design looks stunning with dark silhouette butterflies on a soft grey base.
