Baity's Summer Design Top Tips

So far, the British summer has left a LOT to our imagination.  The long summer August days we were all dreaming about have already been slashed and on the 9th August – the sky is grey and the winter jumpers are on (why do we live in England again  - it certainly isn’t for the weather that’s for sure!!).
However, do not fear! Help is at hand. Baity Kitchen are offering their Top Summer Design tips – catering for all interior design needs, just simply follow our tips to get a fun, vivacious summery look (even if the weather outside contradicts the season!)

Bring the outside - inside!

Last month – we wrote about the latest interior trend, bringing the outside inside. Following on from that post here are some more ideas of ways to bring the outside inside.
Bring alfresco dining inside – using outdoor dining and tableware! Firstly find a summery tablecloth or picnic throw for your kitchen table, like this one that we used for our interview with RED magazine last month!

Bright, block, summery colours or even patterned, floral designs - the bolder and brighter the better!! Accessorize your table with outdoor dining-ware using plastic summery goblets, flutes or tumblers, fill them with some freshly mixed pimms with fruit, mint and ice or whatever else takes your fancy!! There’s nothing like a glass of pimms to make you feel summery!

In the evening light colourful lanterns, which provide romantic, ethereal lighting and enjoy a glass of wine – the perfect summers evening, even if you have to be inside! 

‘Summer–up’ indoors!

All you have to do to make an indoor space feel a bit more summery is to bring a touch of colour. Try replacing cushion covers with bright zingy colours, bringing a breath of fresh air to a more wintery room. We recommend Baity’s brand colour - mint-green which will never go out of fashion due to its freshness.
Flowers are integral for this look. Simply putting single flowers in small jam jars are a cheap and easy way to create this look (like we do at Baity Kitchen!!)

Enjoy the summer – even if you have to stay indoors, sheltering from the rain!

Great ideas. With these temperatures you might add 'drink hot soup' too!
