Just like we pack away our jumpers and coats when the weather changes and swap our cold-weather wardrobe for bare legs, sandals and swimwear (well, we can dream, can't we?), our home interiors style should also reflect the changing seasons.

While cosy wool blankets and furry throws are perfect for curling up by the fire, summer decor calls for all things light and bright. It's the perfect time of year to bring some colour into your home, whether you're repainting wooden chairs, livening up a living room with throw cushions, or adding funky tableware to your entertaining style. The summer months are also the time to revamp your garden or patio space, with an eye-catching vase, glittering lantern or charming bistro set.

Pop over to HomeSense to spruce up your space for the summer months - the one-stop homewares shop has a vast array of everyday and eclectic finds to suit any taste, from country chic cottage to urban cool flat, at unbeatable prices. The store offers plenty of quick and easy makeover ideas to brighten up your home for summer, whether you're looking for some seasonal pastel ceramics for the kitchen or luxurious (and lightweight) linens for your bed.
