Little touches to bring summer inside

As the summer approaches, we at QVC have our fingers crossed for sunny climes – after the tough year we’ve had, who among us hasn’t fantasized about lying under a shady tree with a cold glass of lemonade (or something stronger!)?
That being said, we know the Great British weather can be bit unpredictable, so come rain or shine, we’ve got some home decor that goes beyond the essentials to bring that vibrant feeling of summer inside. So whatever the weather has in store for us, you won’t be missing out on summer this year!

This season’s investment…
… Surprise, it’s you! We believe that there’s never been a better time to focus on your wellbeing and make your home a place you love to be, and this gorgeous velvet armchair from My Home Stories is simply perfect for curling up in with your latest summer reads. Whether it’s too hot to handle, full-on rain or somewhere in between, it’ll be ready and waiting for you whenever you need a bit of a break from the summer climate, so you can happily spend the weekend going from your lounger or garden bench to the shelter of your home.

In fact, why not put your feet up while you’re at it? The matching footstool marries perfectly with the chair to create an instant “me time” nook in the corner of your kitchen, bedroom or living area, welcoming you to carve out time just for yourself. Aaand relax…

Bring in the botanics
As the weather warms up, there’s never been a better time to introduce a tropical touch to your home decor, bringing to mind balmy holidays, lush palm trees and vibrant surroundings.

This striking textured rug from Nourison makes a fabulous botanical centrepiece for any room, bringing it into the new season in an instant. The best part? It can be used inside and outdoors, so it works just as well for tea and cake in the garden as it does watching TV in the living room.

Another great way to add that holiday-at-home feel to your space is with succulents, but if the thought of having to take care of them seems like more trouble than it’s worth, this set of three faux ones is the ideal choice. Each comes in a different coloured ceramic mosaic-style pot, making them just the thing for adding to a home office desk or the mantelpiece for a summery, botanical vibe without the watering. We can’t all have green fingers after all!

If you’re looking for something special to add to a coffee table or bookshelf, this truly elegant buddha statue from K by Kelly Hoppen will turn heads wherever it sits. With a sleek, block colour finish, its beautiful design will give the room that extra special something to celebrate summer.

Make your bed and lie in it (you’ll want to all day!)
Nothing feels fresher than a brand new duvet set, and this beautiful Spring Song four-piece set from Cozee Home is the perfect fit for the transition into summer. It boasts Cozee Home’s lauded Supersoft fabrication that feels fabulous next to your skin if you’re wearing a light nightie or cropped pyjamas, plus it’s gorgeously lightweight so you’re less likely to overheat at night. We absolutely love this elegant, breezy print too – it’s perfect for any style of bedroom decor.

It’s good to be prepared for those boiling nights when the summer unexpectedly comes in in full force too, and when they do, you’ll be glad of this Northern Nights Cooling Tencel Sateen four-piece duvet set. Specially designed to help regulate your temperature as you sleep, this luxe-feeling fabric does all the work for you. Pop it onto your bed now to give it a pristine, fresh look, or keep it in the cupboard to help you handle the heat when it really ramps up later in the year!

It’s the little touches that make the biggest difference, so bring the summer in with our full range here.
