Home Interiors | How To Bring Summer Indoors

In true 'British summer' fashion, I have spent most of today indoors, sheltering from the torrential rain outside. Apparently, this April to June has been the wettest on record for England and Wales. So much for Summer sun! In order to cheer myself up, I have been searching for the most colourful interiors I can find. If I have to spend my summers inside, I want to do it in the cheeriest, most summery of rooms!

Colourful chairs are sold 'ready coloured' at Maine Cottage, but a cheaper (and more eco-friendly) version would be to paint a a set of 2nd hand chairs yourself!
