Eternal summer


Three artistic home ideas to make summer last a little longer


We are currently enjoying the last weeks of summer. So it's about time to extend the most beautiful season of the year at home and create our own breezy paradise with a few tips and tricks.
In the following article, I will introduce you to three home ideas that will give your home a makeover that brings soft elegance and preserves the summer feelings. You can find the matching paintings, collages and wall hangings for the eternal summer in my online shop www.tinystories.nl.


HOME TIP 1 – CONJURE UP SUMMER LIGHTNESS 

Fancy some candy floss and soft serve ice cream? We love that lightness of being in summer. So, let’s exchange the heavy wool blankets and cuddly cushions for brightly coloured and airy textiles such as linen, silk or viscose. Transparent fabrics conjure up a summery atmosphere in no time. Combined with pastel colours or with ethnic-patterned or trendy fringed cushions, these textiles ensure a good mood and cheerful look. We can also embellish our walls with breezy pastel hues, which in the landscape art print CORAL & CHOCOLATE (€49.95) meet with strong earth tones, forming a harmonious connection. This high-quality reproduction is available in 30 x 40 cm and 50 x 70 cm sizes.


HOME TIP 2 – A TRIP TO THE COUNTRYSIDE 

Inspired by summer nature, we enjoy the effect of lively greenery inside our four walls. Pastel green is a perfect choice if you want more lightness, and your room needs a colourful dollop of freshness. Using pastel yellow and gold details such as candlesticks or bowls can create exciting contrasts. However, a light green shade also comes into its own when combined with rust red. In interior design, shades of pastel green and natural materials such as wood and stone form a harmonious combination, which is both modern and relaxing.  Things turn fabulously green with the 30 X 40 cm art print PALMIER (€49.95), a botanical highlight in the home gallery.


HOME TIP 3 – A SEA OF FLOWERS 

You can add some summer flair to your apartment by using typical blossom colours and textiles or artworks with a variety of different flowers, such as the floral and expressive quality reproduction FLOATING FLOWERS (in A4, from €39.95). All artworks can also be bought framed with high-quality wooden frames.
