Mention “summer décor” and the words immediately bring to mind images of whitewashed floors, beige upholstery, and wicker chairs. That is a classic summer look, but there are other decorating trends out there that offer a fresh and unexpected take on summer, aside from the expected muted tropical pieces.

Millennial pastels


Debenhams’ Cosmopolitan collection features watercolor-washed beddings and pillows in soft, Millennial pastels of almond, pistachio, and blush. The pastel tints are updated with fun gold accents and pompom details.

Modern lighting pieces in sophisticated metal finishes such as matte gold, pewter, and rose gold are given a twist with hints of retro-60s line. These lamps will look perfect with the Cosmopolitan collection!

Quirky creatures


Whimsical creatures in brass and copper-style finishes give a nod to the quirky Victorian era (so British). How to update them: pair the cute creature lamps with sleek, modern furniture and boldly painted walls.

Doing another take on whimsical creatures is Abigail Ahern, one of Britain’s most popular interior designers. She loves to layer with patterns, deep colors, multiple fabrics, and a lot of wit and humor, as seen in her felt-flocked lamps.

Relaxed brights


Other noteworthy trends in the collection: brights and bold florals that are made subtle and sophisticated with a mix of white and gray. These bedlinen have a subtle nautical feel with the boat stripes and ticking-cover pillowcases.

You can find all these items locally at Debenhams, Shangri-la Plaza, Glorietta 4, TriNoma Quezon City, Estancia Mall at Capitol Commons, and Abreeza, Davao, or visit their website.
