When you think of summer do you think bright, fresh and dreamy? The colour scheme in your house should match and when it comes to fabrics there’s nothing more luxurious and indulgent than silk. Need convincing? These images by James Hare give a masterclass in simple, understated style. The soft muted tones of the edged silk drape above creates a dreamy, light atmosphere when pared with crisp white walls and soft bloom roses. The juxtaposition of the luxurious fabric with the panelled walls and marble-topped table is pure elegance and makes me think of a stately Georgian townhouse with windows flung wide open and the scent of fresh-cut grass drifting in. Anyone for Pimms?
As a contrast, the zingy tones of the chartreuse table cloth above add a pop of summer colour to a fresh room scheme. Made from diffusion silk it would look perfect in a summer dining room or sun-filled conservatory. Green is always a popular spring tone and pared with the simple white walls, classic wooden chairs and simple accessories this vibrant colour transforms the simple table into a colourful summer party.
