Prepare your home for summer and bring the outdoors in using Sophie’s charming and warm Sunflower design. Sunflowers are significant to the Sophie Allport story – they were the flowers that Sophie was painting at her first Country Living Fair, which inspired her to start the business. This stunning design is full of character, offering memories of driving through the Italian countryside with field upon field of sunflowers.
Summer wouldn’t be complete without these bright and cheerful blooms, with their long, elegant stems and soft yellow petals giving them a sun-like appearance. Let’s look at some Sunflower-style notes showcasing how you can add these cheerful blooms to your home.
Create a summer sleep sanctuary
We spend almost 1/3 of our lives asleep, approximately 229,961 hours, and why not create a sleep sanctuary that you love and can’t wait to nestle down and relax after a long day?
Brighten the bedroom with the crisp white bed linen, which features Sophie’s sunflower illustrations. This bedding is reversible and has a soft sage green pinstripe design, meaning you can easily switch up from stunning flowers to country style.
Feature four pillows on your double, king, and super king bed to add fullness to your bed – we love to flip the pillowcases around at the back to show the pinstripe design, creating texture and depth to your bedspread. Finally, fill a vase with fresh sunflowers from the garden to bring your room to life!
Brighten up the kitchen with Sunflower
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and with summer living almost here, we’re brightening up the space, allowing the light to flood and fill the room. Featured on a 100% linen fabric, our tea towel, oven glove, apron, and oven mitt will add a touch of colour to the kitchen, as well as a natural texture that offers rustic charm.
This lovely design is versatile and works with many kitchen interiors – it will brighten neutral spaces and stands out beautifully against contrasting forest green or navy-blue cupboards. It pairs well with other natural materials like wood, stoneware, wicker, and jute – giving a real earthy aesthetic.
Add summer sunflowers to the tablescape
Summer brings plenty of opportunities for entertaining friends and family, whether it’s a special occasion or Sunday brunch. Sophie’s Sunflower linens add cheerful blooms to the tabletop.
Centring your tablescape around one colour can help simplify your setting, whilst neutral shades bring timeless elegance for a summer soiree.
A mixture of different textures and materials will add warmth and depth to the table setting. – opt for cushions and throws – we love this linen blend cushion, which pairs perfectly with Sophie’s Sunflower collections.
Our stoneware dinner and side plates add elegance and sophistication to the table - layered with a relaxed linen napkin offers a casual sense of floral style to the setting.
