Summer is about to officially begin, and for many of us that can mean a new number one priority – namely, keeping cool!
Here at Dotmaison we think its a great time of year to try out some new ideas in stylish accessories and designs. And with it being summer, where better than to start at the beach! If you’re off on a day trip to the seaside or a longer beach holiday abroad, chances are you’re going to want to do some swimming. If that happens to be true, a beach towel is essential packing. Why not celebrate the start of holiday season with a brand new one?
There are some fantastic new designs around, with this striking style from Calvin Klein (above) showing off a vibrant take on the seaside classic. Created in soft cotton and arriving in a resplendent shade of red, the towel – quite rightly named ‘Bold’ – will provide comfort and drying. There is also an equally impressive new take on the item from Hugo Boss. Called the Carved Beach Towel and available in a number of different colours, it will also offer a generous size of velvety cotton material ideal for the seaside.
Away from the waves and the sea, drinking some sort of liquid is always a must. Do so at leisure and in style with this beautiful design from Orla Kiely. The multi stem pitcher holds up to 1.5L and is ideal for serving ice cold drinks on the hottest of hot days. Made of earthenware and featuring the classic Orla Kiely multi-stem design, this is one of those summer essentials destined to make a valuable contribution to stylish living all year round!
Sometimes when the sun gets a little too bright, there is nothing more relaxing than taking to the bedroom for a spot of relaxing reading. At those times, it is certainly preferable to be equipped with some good quality curtains to keep the sleeping area shaded. These new Palette Curtains from Bluebellgray certainly fir the bill in that regard, with the 100% cotton curtains beautifully illustrated in a montage of floral watercolours. Capable of bringing a fantastic work of abstract artistry to the bedroom, a relaxing and cool siesta can be enjoyed by all.
There is currently a Summer Sale at Dotmaison where you can also find loads of ideas for in and around the home. Happy summer and enjoy the sunshine!
