Statement-making style, easy as one, two, three

Colour can be tricky to style in any room of the house and when it comes to the kitchen, it’s easier to play it safe. But with summer in full swing, we think there’s no better time to experiment with the more vibrant shades on the colour wheel and make your cooking space feel as fiery as you do. Here’s how.

An easy win to breathing new life into your kitchen is to pepper it with a mix of summery prints. Our new Casa de Cuba range is inspired by tropical climes so expect loads of fruity motifs – think lemons, papayas, grapefruits and more. To keep the look authentic, we’re paring them back with cast iron cookware. But forget basic white because this summer, we’re championing jazzy tangerine (naturally).

Havana vibes

If you want a masterclass in working bright shades, head over to Pinterest and hit search on Havana. Get the look with these retro metal storage tins and tile print seat cushions. They’ve got a tropical Cuban-meets-vintage vibe that feels totally right for now. Style tip: try popping the lid on one of your tins and fill with a few sunflowers for an effortless table centrepiece that screams summer.

Top tables

The kitchen table is the perfect place to add a dose of colour to your decor. Go all out by contrasting and clashing bright shades and juicy prints – the more the better. Or pair some vibrant side plates with your everyday white dinner plates and our tinted green glasses for a subtle touch of the trend.

Next up, the bathroom. These are the four tricks we’re following this summer. Shipshape space, here we come.
