Destination inspired interior decorating – bringing your holiday home

The summer holidays can be over before you know it.   Yearning for the stylish surroundings you’ve just left behind?    A little destination inspired interior decorating can make those feel-good memories last a lifetime.

You can’t quite put your finger on what you most loved about your holiday?   Chances are it had something to do with colour and pattern. With a little imagination, you can weave these into your living spaces.   Making for a lighter, brighter and fresher summer vibe before the winter nights draw in.

Add a riot of bright colours and Aztec patterns to create Mexican fun in modern homes.

Add Ibiza influences to create a light and bright interior with sunshine yellow colours and a dash of relaxed pattern.

Cosy up an otherwise minimal white interior with spice-coloured textiles and a mix of metals for an eclectic Moroccan look.

Blend oceanic blues with crisp white, layering geometric pattern to keep things rustic and relaxed for a reminder of picture-postcard Santorini.

For a Florida feel, stick to a strict citrus palette against pure white backdrop with a hint of black just to keep things grounded and have fun with quirky accessories.

And don’t forget to use room fragrances to recreate those chilled summer holiday vibes.
