Add Some Sweet Scents
No matter whether you're looking to set the mood or have a nice soak in the bath, everybody loves a candle. There are so many glorious scents to choose from, many of which can whisk you away to a tropical shore somewhere! Candles can even be themed, so keep an eye out for candles made especially for the summer months. If you're looking for a responsibly sourced candle with eco qualities, look no further than our locally crafted candles at Design 44!
This delightful mango and mandarin scented candle with a lid is perfect for adding summer scents to your home, with a sweet aroma that's bound to enchant anyone in the room. Also, once you've finished with your candle, you can reuse it as a little planter, cutting down your waste usage!
Incorporate Colour with Prints
A colourful home is a happy home, but try not to overload your space with too many clashing patterns! A little dash of colour here and there can make any home pop, and adds a welcoming atmosphere. Wall décor and home prints are a perfect way to add a unique, colourful touch to your home, and can grab the attention of guests.

Add Plants and Greenery
What better way to announce the arrival of summer than with some plants and flowers? House plants not only provide colour, scents and décor to your home, but keeping them alive and watching them bloom is something to be proud of! Whilst you look for the perfect flower for your home (here are some top tips!), we'll provide the planter!
