After feeling inspired by the beautiful blue skies and bright spring sunshine last weekend I went on the hunt for interior design ideas to reflect the lighter, longer, brighter days. The result of my search? The new Brighton range from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection at BHS, which is packed full of colourful interior design ideas for both country and industrial spaces. The Maisey sofa and armchair give a nod to mid century design thanks for their rounded shapes and splayed legs, but are given a modern update thanks to Designers Guild upholstery. I love how they’ve paired the cobalt blue fabric with the sunshine yellow-painted brick wall – hello, Summer! If you want to work this look into a modern space you should introduce your hues in bold colour blocks, like the Brighton dining chair; place four around a gloss white dining dining table for a modern colour statement. If, however, you wish to bring the look into a country scheme you should soften the hues with pretty floral patterns. Which way do you like best?
