Bring Nature Inside this Summer

Start your Summer with a décor refresh to suit the season and boost your mood. 2024 is set to be full of earthy tones, sustainable choices and odes to the past. It has been proven time and time again that spending time in nature and bringing it into our homes has a positive effect on our overall health and happiness. The surge of wellness and self-care in recent years has influenced the way we are dressing our homes. Let us take you through our favourite picks to change up your home this Summer.

Earthy Tones

Rich and creamy neutrals inspired by the earth, organic greens and delicious sprinkles of colour are the aesthetic for this Summer. If you’re in the market for a new Suite, opt for natural neutrals to ground your space and build from with décor. Our favourite Fabric for your Sofa, Chair or Footstool this season is Combarro Almond from Aquaclean. This cool-toned light brown is both a soft, yet durable option, created with an advanced protector to ensure easy cleanup of common household stains.

Accent your classically neutral base with hints of colour from nature. Keep to the earthy theme with a textural twist and choose an Accent Fabric such as Lake Autumn for your Scatter Cushions or Footstool. Or bring in a nod to foliage with Cambridge Olive, a brand new 100% Top Grain Leather option available across a huge range of our models.

Organic Shapes

Complement your tones of nature with organic shapes and textures that soften your space and give it the inviting refresh it deserves. Think curves and natural materials with a touch of a modern twist, just like this Table Lamp from Dunelm (left), it’s Ribbed Terracotta base is balanced perfectly by the jet-black Linen shade which adds modern elegance with a hint of texture.

From the Table Lamp to the Table, Nkuku’s Braided Hemp Side Table (right) fully embodies the brief with its cylindrical shape and natural material. The versatility of this piece knows no bounds as it can also be used as a Footstool or Occasional Seat. The varying oaty-tones within the hemp perfectly complements Combarro Almond for a well-rounded design.

Sustainable Pieces

Along with the rise in wellness is the desire for sustainability and longevity in our possessions, extending naturally into our home décor. The days of fast fashion are fading and people are beginning to curate their spaces with pieces to last a lifetime. As well as being fully hand-crafted to order in the UK, that means reduced transport miles, every unit from G Plan has a 25 year Frame Guarantee, now that’s sustainability! One of our bestselling models is Chloe, she is crafted with a distinctive high back and bull-nose cushions and is available in a whopping 23 variations to suit your needs.

Upcycling is another incredible way of staying sustainable whilst also watching the pennies. Many of our talented customers have sourced vintage G Plan pieces and given them a new lease of life with a bit of elbow grease. Head to out Instagram to discover some of these restored beauties.

Vintage Touches

Speaking of vintage G Plan…bringing ornaments and furniture of old into our homes is the final piece to our 2024 Summer styling puzzle. Fusing the styles of multiple eras is the newest way to style your home, with the rise in popularity for Thrifting, forgotten treasures have made their way into the homes of someone new. The phrase ‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ couldn’t be more apt. This hasn’t gone unnoticed by major retailers, who have brought this into their own designs. This Candle Holder from Anthropologie is the perfect example of the vintage style popular today, with its winding brass base and the delicate frosted glass petals surrounding the holder.
