Summer Style: Bringing Comfort to Your Conservatory
Whether the sun is beaming bright, or the weather has let you down, relaxing in your conservatory is a perfect alternative to sitting outside in the garden. By keeping the space versatile and comfortable, a conservatory can become an all-weather oasis within the home. This week we’re exploring the best ways to bring comfort and style into your conservatory so you can make the most of the space this summer.
A Social Oasis
If you like to use your conservatory as a place to entertain guests, a corner sofa may be the best option for you. Open up the space and create the perfect social seating area with the stylish Bronte corner sofa. Adorn with scatters and soft fabric throws for when the sun goes down and your guests won’t want to leave.
For a smaller space, try a two seater sofa like the Watson. Modern and sleek yet extremely comfortable, the Watson offers the best of both worlds and is perfect for an afternoon snooze after a busy morning in the garden.
Let in the Light
One of the biggest advantages of a conservatory is the light that streams in through large windows or patio doors; great for keeping a smaller space bright and airy, and giving lovely views over your garden when it’s in bloom.
Make the most of the daylight with a fresh and neutral colour palette. For your sofa, Hopsack Dove and Rush Cream are ideal fabric choices to help reflect light around the room, creating a cool and light space for relaxing in on sunny days. These chenille fabrics will also be nice and cosy on the cooler days too.
Be inspired by the beautiful shades of a summertime garden and bring them in through accents and accessories. A bright woven rug will add interest to a pale floor, or introduce scatter cushions to add a pop of colour to a neutral sofa. We love the on-trend spicy orange tones of Naples Claret fabric. Bring your personality to the space by displaying family photographs and pieces you’ve picked up on your travels.
Create a fresh and contemporary aesthetic with the ever-popular botanical trend; by bringing elements of the outside into your interior you will always feel as though you are in your garden! Darker wooden furniture, wall art inspired by nature, and rich green plants will breathe life into a neutral space. If you like a patterned fabric, try Leaf Green on a sofa or armchair which will be warm and welcoming, even when the weather is grey.
