Pattern at home

Now that Summer is here
Even if it has rained incessantly for the last 2 weeks
I am in the mood to add some colour and pattern in to the house
Shake off the deep hues of winter
with some bright happy prints
Here are some of the pieces on my wish list

This Chair from
looks very comfy and would make a perfect addition to my living room
I currently have a vintage 3 seater brown leather sofa
which I do love and is very practical with 3 boys and a dog in the house
but sometimes I do lust after something a little more whimsical

While for me it is not practical I do love the idea of switching your Sofa cover for summer
As this is usually the largest piece of furniture in your room
changing the covers can really transform the atmosphere
so from Dark brown I would shake it up with this

 Expensive sofa from here
This is a covered sofa but you could easily get a slip cover made in a similar fabric

To throw on to this I would add
this Anthropologie cushion

and some from
John Robshaw

and we may need a throw
because, well, you know Ireland isn't exactly the warmest place in June
I would head back to John Robshaw for that also
and curl up in one of his vintage quilts

Then I would dot some of these around the room
as coasters
or catch-alls for the bits and bobs one needs to hand
plates from
High street market 

and finally the floor.....
I am being bold here but I do think this yellow rug would really make everything else sing

vintage morrocan rug 

As the walls are charcoal grey I think this would all be rather splendid

Do you change your decor or accessories for summer ?


  1. Adore your choices!! I use accessories and bedding changes for the seasons! Pillows add so much!

  2. Yes indeed, Pillows can transform a sofa, x

  3. Oh wow - this is so amazing!! You're much more daring than me (probably because you actually know what you're doing), but I love this all so much!
