SHERBET SHADES AND SUMMERY HOMEWARE

We bring you scoops and scoops of sherbet shades and sugar-coated home ideas. From powdery pink to cooling blues, we just love pastels inspired by hot days and ice cream vans. Sweet, sweet summer.

Pick and mix.

American-style ice creams.

We’re not talking about the ice cream (though we’re partial to some too!) Here are three perfect ways to bring pastel colour pops into your home this summer.

- Pick up baking bowls and kitchenware in range of light colours. What a treat!
- Sprinkle a pastel scheme with neon accessories for an urban chic room.
- For something a bit more grown-up, experiment with dusky pastels and pale greys. We like being serious (sometimes).

A FRUITY SUMMER PARTY

Summer’s looking so sweet, and we’re thinking about all the lovely parties we can throw. This week, we’ve (cherry) picked fruit as our inspiration: zingy prints, juicy colours and berries in bowls.

Delicious!

So refreshing!

IDEAS WE LOVE
Berry picking at your party: All you need is a selection of cups, bowls and glasses. Fill them with cherries, strawberries and raspberries for guests to treat themselves.

Sicilian style: Granita is so refreshing – and tastes all the more delicious poured from a Mediterranean ceramic jug.

Pineapples! Tropical prints and bright colours look so luscious. Mix and match table linen, runners and napkins for an exotic, eclectic table.

Have fun!
