As suitcases are pulled from storage, our sandals dusted off and miniature shampoos fill our shopping baskets, it’s time for the yearly summer holiday where we jet off to sunnier climes.

But if, like us, you can only dream of white sand and turquoise water, why not take this dreary British weather as an opportunity to stay indoors and give your home a much-needed injection of sun?

Keep reading for three simple ways to add a Mediterranean vibe to your home…

-Sunflowers! We’d all love to be running through a field covered in sunflowers, sun streaming down on us, but if that’s not an option, why not buy a beautiful bunch for your kitchen!

-For many of us, summer means linen and lots of it! We’re talking linen dresses, tablecloths, bedding… Adding a white linen tablecloth to your kitchen is a surefire way to inject a hint of the Mediterranean! LinenMe has some great ones!

-Fresh new flooring! Create your own azure vibe with our beautiful collection of blue hue tiles! For flooring that mirrors those days when there’s not a cloud in the sky, try Mountbatten. Or for an understated touch, our Dee Hardwicke vinyl tile in Cornflower Blue.
