Lucy Loves: 22 Gorgeous Interiors Buys For Summer

Our shopping editor sniffs out the prettiest home accessories for the last days of summer.

It is a rare day that finds us not in the mood for an exploratory little scout for something to pep up the home – regrettably, perhaps, for our bank managers. And as the last stretch of summer shimmers into view, so our thoughts turn to the days ahead, when we shall duly be spending less time picnicking amidst seasonal wildflowers and more time getting cosy indoors, entertaining where possible and whipping up apple and blackberry crumbles. But we’re not quite there yet, so until the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness descends, we’ll be eking out the last of the golden rays with this crop of high summer beauties.
