It’s summer time at last – and we are so proud that we can actually say that, as the sun blazes down. With every new season comes a new vibe, a fresh energy, and our interiors are the place we love to reflect that new feeling.
For us at GAFF, you know we love to inject a little newness into our homes and living spaces without breaking the bank, so we’ve complied some of the summer’s most popular trends that we Irish are loving, and ones that you can incorporate into your own home this summer season.
Summer allows us to really go wild with colour – the neons and brights that we usually shun in favor of neutrals suddenly feel totally appropriate for these long, hazy days. We’re loving the blue, pink and sunshine yellow epicurean accessories that are filling the highstreets. Just choosing one of these elements for your kitchen is an instant summer interiors upgrade.
Wine glass, €4.99; tablecloth, €19.99; jug, €7.99; selection of vases, all at H&M.
Wall To Wall
One of the biggest comebacks we’re witnessing this summer season is the return of wallpaper. We’re loving the patterned and printed rolls that are back in fashion. You know those feature walls we are always telling you to try out? Do it with wallpaper this summer instead of paint and instantly transform any room.

Natural materials are one of our favourite summer essentials whether you invest in a new rattan rug or chuck your planting into a wicker basket. There’s something so beach-like about using these materials in your home. Ideal if you can’t quite make it to the Caribbean this summer.

OK, now let’s talk about the trendiest thing your bathroom can own this summer; Bando’s feature towels have become THE home accessory to covet and we can see why.
Just one of these beauties will take your bathroom from regular to style goals in an instant. We’ll take one of each, please.
