Summertime is just around the corner, and with it comes a bright and breezy sense of optimism that things are going to get better! It’s one of our favourite times of year here at Melt, and if you’re thinking of bringing that rejuvenating sensation to your living room design this summer, we’re here with a few tips. Decorative items like prints, pastels, and potted plants, and our delightful summer scented candles, are all perfect options for bringing that perfect summertime feel to your living room.

So, here are our four favourite decoration ideas that are sure to bring some sunny smiles to anyone who enters your living room!

Pastels and Neutrals

To set the tone, you’ll need the perfect colour palette to make your space feel like summer. Neutral hues are fantastically refreshing, and brilliantly reflect sunlight to create a vibrant, inviting space. If you’re up to it, you could repaint the walls and change up your sofa covers. Or, if you’re thinking of going down the pastel route, you could opt for a pastel accent wall, neutral and pastel furniture, pillows. These are all great options, and by coupling them up with a vibrant summertime scent like lavender, you’ll be able to create the perfect ambience in your living room space.


Prints are by far the easiest and most cost-effective way to change up the look of any living room. They’re versatile, and come in a range of styles from contemporary, to more classical designs. If you can think it, you can rest assured that there’s a print out there to suit your personality. You could use botanical wallpaper to create an accent wall, then order yourself some nature inspired prints full of wildlife and quirky plants to create your own outdoor habitat, right in your lounge!

Potted plants

Looking for the easiest way to make your living room look like spring? It’s simple, just bring a piece of the beautiful outdoors into the tranquility of your indoor space with some potted plants and lush greenery. It doesn’t matter whether you go for natural, or faux plants, either way they can really help to bring a refreshing feel to your living room. As a handy tip, why not consider attaching bright faux blooms to your wall to create an accent wall? It’s a bold move, but the summer is all about being adventurous!
