Summertime, and the living is easy…

The fantastic early May bank holiday weather has well and truly put me in the mood for summer, and I wanted to share some summery finds by way of inspiration for fresh and relaxed interiors…

First up is Holly Lasseter Designs http://www.hollylasseterdesigns.co.uk/ . Holly creates beautiful hand painted china, fabrics, tiles and home accessories from her Dorset studio. I love her appealing fresh and delicate designs, so reminiscent of an English summer. Each hand painted pattern for her wonderful hand made floral cushions is transposed on to high quality linen union, and the cushions are available in a variety of sizes and ground colours. 

Here’s a selection of what most caught my eye:

With hundreds of exhibitors for everything home and garden, craft, culinary and gardening demonstrations, and loads more, on a site bedecked with summer bunting in a quintessentially rural English setting, it could be a perfect day out!
