Sprinkle a Little Sunshine into your Home

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Well for once the weather presenters got it right and what a glorious weekend of sun we've had!  But for when the British weather does spoil our promised sun, then why not sprinkle a little sunshine into your home. I couldn't have found a better cushion to start my sunny collection. [caption id="attachment_2335" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Hello Sunshine Printed Cushion, Not on the High Street £26.00 Hello Sunshine Printed Cushion, Not on the High Street £26.00[/caption] Start your day with this stunning wallpaper called Sunrise.

[caption id="attachment_2324" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Smiley Lamp, Maiden £189.00 Smiley Lamp, Maiden £189.00[/caption] For a statement piece of wall decor this cool, crisp mirror representing rays of sunshine is just what you need.

Yellow is such a happy colour, it is warm and often misunderstood.  It's a colour that people often feel awkward about using, but yellow is back!  It's bold, fun and stylish, take this chair for example.

[caption id="attachment_2328" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Jonah Upholstered Bench, Made £249.00 Jonah Upholstered Bench, Made £249.00[/caption] For a more quirky seating option, try this pouf ottoman. [caption id="attachment_2329" align="aligncenter" width="603"]Pouf Ottoman, Boqa £239.00 Pouf Ottoman, Boqa £239.00[/caption] I couldn't resist this dandelion duvet set as part of the 150th anniversary range at John Lewis.
