Here comes the sun...
Step away from the cream-coloured throw… Cosy neutrals are so last weekend, pay day is on its way and we need shopping justification. Though the lure of minimalism is real, we’re craving a little pizzazz, an injection of flamboyance, an LED FLAMINGO PEOPLE. If Cuban Zen was the main course, this is the dessert, want to know which delicious picks are holding our attention right now? Feast your eyes on this juicy bunch, with prices starting from only £2, yum yum!
Bird motif cushion £5, cactus money box £5
Since the arrival of summer is sure to be slow, it’s our responsibility to ‘up the heat’ in your living space. There’s no denying it, this colour palette is fearless; think bold cyan yellows, green in all its glory and scrummy bubblegum pinks. Stay calm minimalists, neutrals aren’t a no-go; calming creams are the ideal backdrop to fabulous vibrant furnishings. Though a pink sofa is the stuff of dreams, there’s no denying that cushions will sing against hues of grey, white and navy. Keep the focus on the accessories: vases, candles, trinket dishes, mini cactuses… oh go on, grab yourself a shopping basket. With colours as lush as these, it’s simply sinful to tone it down.
Toucan cushion £7
LED flamingo £10, wild orchid and honey £2
Let’s not forget that where fashion paves the way, interiors are sure to follow – hence the surge of yellow dominating this trend. There’s a certain redheaded actress to thank for the revival of this buttercup shade (come on, that dress, that film, Ryan Gosling?!), and we’re all up for infusing a little sunshine into our décor. Liven up a bedside with scented candles in sunflower shades, or keep lemon to lounging with accent cushions – we’re La La for yellow…
Hunnies, we feel you, working life is hard (we spot that side eye reading this feature), we need treats for all the trying. Nothing says ‘switch off’ like a reading spot, an area of the home dedicated to pure relaxation. A Zen-filled corner is only complete with statement cushions and a mismatched throw. Did someone say pineapple prints? *Drools* Fill this serene space with decorative touches that keep you smiling, from sweet smelling flowers, to the infamous flamingo - cue serious relaxation and one killer Instagram pic.
String lights £6
So whether it’s a midweek pick me up that draws you in, or just the LED flami… (need we say it?), you’ll find all this goodness in store right now. Put down the fruit cake (or, you know, just eat it really quickly), and opt for tasty treats that will keep you satisfied for longer – to Primark Home!
