With the festive season just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get your home shipshape for summer entertaining. We chat to Managing Director of May Time – one of New Zealand’s leading furniture and home ware wholesalers – to get the scoop on what’s going to be hot this coming season.
What interior trends are you looking forward to the most this season?
There is a beautiful colour palette of moody pinks, blues and greens coming through that creates a soft, summery look. Accessorise with coppers and bronzes against a background of light timbers, marble table tops and accessories.
What quick tips can you give us for sprucing up our homes once summer arrives?
Cushions on sofas and beds in the colours of summer change the feel of your home immediately. Place vases of fresh flowers inside, pop candles on outside tables and new towels in the bathroom. Then clean the windows and it will feel like you’re walking into a new home.
What are three things that every home should have?
A top quality sofa, dimmable lighting and lots of books
Share an interior design secret with us.
If you hate the curtains in your new home turn them around on the track so the lining faces the room for a temporary fix.
