Living Your Best Summer Life In 2023

It’s time to roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, and we’ve decided to take a few pieces of advice from good ol’ Nat King Cole. After all, jazz is all about using cool tones and low beats to help unwind and destress, and who better to understand this than the famous musician who heavily influenced the jazz scene back in the late 1930s for nearly three decades? Let’s all take some time to take a look at how to make the most of these hot summer months, from casual entertaining to easy accessorising.

Those Days Of Soda And Pretzels And Beer

Channel the sun with different shades of yellow, orange, and red as you decorate your home, both indoors and outdoors. Making sure that your residence feels comfortable and looks stylish is incredibly easy by sprucing your decor up with some well-chosen pieces. Place this elegant hand-painted pottery jug with floral motifs on your dazzling Indian block print terracotta tablecloth with orange and gold flowers. Adorn empty areas with yellow floral bunting, and bring out some much-needed ice-cream in this set of adorable waffle con sundae cups. All that’s left is for you to kick back, put your feet up, and relax!

Dust Off The Sun And Moon And Sing A Song Of Cheer

It’s all about staying cool and fresh…and that includes your ensemble! Dress up for that summer party by accessorising with a vintage floral lucite bangle, a bright and fun pair of handcrafted polymer clay geometric drop earrings, and a light floral scarf in fuchsia and honey. Before you head out the door, don’t forget to upload that Instagram selfie to show off your latest look. Need some background contrast? Add a single spray of delicate yellow Dancing-lady Orchid, which we’d always recommend as a maintenance-free alternative  to plants anyway!


Just Fill Your Basket Full Of Sandwiches And Weenies

Get some exercise in by organising a little seaside picnic and inviting your closest friends and family. Of course, you’ll need some cotton napkins and an eye-catching vintage set of goblets in an incredible cobalt blue colour. To make things more interesting, concoct some delicious cocktails with “Cheers! The Complete Cocktail Recipe Book: Modern And Classic Cocktails For Every Occasion”. Better yet, make it a group activity! Nothing says summer days like getting to incorporate cooling herbs like fennel, basil, mint, coriander, and dill. Don’t forget to take along some cushions for maximum comfort, too, like this unique and colourful cushion with a handcrafted 50s/60s needlepoint panel featuring some bathing beauties. This will be an outing to remember!


You’ll Wish That Summer Could Always Be Here

Don’t we all? If you’re heading to the beach to catch some rays, don’t forget these essentials! This cheerful red fan will be a lifesaver when battling the heat at any get-together. Complete your look with a beautiful sarong made with traditional Indian hand block printing by Rastogi Handicrafts. Need some entertainment? We’ve got a selection of choice summer reads from best-selling author Danielle Steel, one of which is aptly named “Summer’s End”

(Hush! We’re not thinking of such pleasant warm weather ending so soon). But how will you haul all these things back and forth? Why, with this quaint straw lemon-coloured bag, of course! You may choose to be relaxed, but you can still do so in style, and this little bag is perfect for the odd luncheon date or chat at the local cafe.

How will you be spending your summer vacation? Let is know all about how you plan on making Summer 2023 a collection of dreams to look back on!
