5 refreshing interior design tips to transform your home into a Mediterranean setting

The summer is just around the corner, which means it could be the right time for another change in interiors.

As the summer season approaches, it’s time to breathe new life into your home with bright, playful decor that captures the essence of the warmer weather.

Kate Conrad, senior interior designer at luxury homeware retailer Madison & Mayfair, shares her top tips on how to create an inviting, warm, and bright space that feels like summer, even when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

Make use of bold patterns

“Using bright, eye-catching patterns is a summer staple. Your home will feel instantly transformed with a bold pattern,” says Kate. Vibrant botanical styles and abstract designs are classic summer choices, while gingham has been trending this year for a contemporary vibe. Incorporate patterned ornaments, lamps, bed linens, or throws to create an uplifting summery sanctuary.

Natural tones and styles

“I think that opting for a Mediterranean theme can really uplift your home,” adds Kate. Soft, natural materials like cottons, linens, and wicker can provide a lightness to your space that feels like summer. Scandi lighting with an open rattan weave is another suitable option to add a breezy summer touch to your decor.

Summery scents

Igniting our senses beyond visual aesthetics is another way to create a summery home. Kate recommends using diffusers or candles with refreshing scents like lemon, orange, or green basil in the entrance of your home to offer an uplifting first impression to guests.

Fruity decor

Fruit-themed decor has been a popular design trend in recent months, allowing you to easily add personality to your home. “From vases to jugs to crockery, you can create a whole collection of fruity items, perfect for summer days spent outside enjoying barbeques, as well as to keep the summer theme inside your home, in your kitchen and dining room,” suggests Kate.

Bright colours

“Bright colours are the essence of summer. They are a guaranteed way to freshen up your home,” says Kate. As homeowners become braver with their colour palettes, she recommends citrus shades like lemon and lime for a cheerful, energising combination that creates a summer-themed statement in your home.
