ANTIPODEAN SUMMER STYLING

18 Nov 2019

Summer is the perfect time to bring the outside in. With the Pohutukawa in full bloom along Kiwi coastlines, it’s the season to embrace the balmy bliss of long, lazy days.

Summer is the time to throw open the windows and introduce a lighter palette of colours and fabrics into your home. Indulge in some fresh organic bed linen and cushions, and introduce some beautiful new prints and textures.

A relaxed summer bedroom

At Wallace Cotton, our prints and fabrics are inspired by nature.  When colours and styles are carried from the outside in, it helps make a space look and feel harmonious.  Blue and white is a classic combination and The Grove (pictured below) duvet brings a subtle touch of the tropics to your bedroom.

Soft florals can add a romantic feel to any room. Our Rose Anna duvet set will bring beauty to a bedroom, along with a clean green Antipodes quilt to add texture or a classic white Unity quilt for a lovely summery layer.

Switch up your bedroom for summer with crisp cotton percale and soft pure linen. Summer whites are wonderfully crisp and clean. Choose pure cotton or soft breathable linen to create a calm, relaxing environment. Check out our recent blog post about how to keep your whites white.

Kitchen and living

‘tis the season for summer entertaining, with Christmas celebrations flowing, through to casual summer barbeques and days by the beach.

For a relaxed summer table, lay out some Loft table linen with a scattering of shells and fresh new candles.


Liven up your living room or outdoor seating with some bright new cushions and a textured cotton throw.

Don’t forget about the kitchen. Some simple updates like fresh seasonal tea-towels can make the world of difference to the busiest room in the house. Add a summery gardenia candle and some fresh flowers or an indoor plant to bring the garden inside.
