Introducing Summer Style Series :: Part 1 {decor}

Hello lovelies! Melbourne Cup day unofficially signals the start of the festive season here in Aussie-land, so its fitting that I kick off the brand new Summer Style series today. 

With the help of some fabulous bloggers who will be sharing what Summer means to them over the next four weeks, I hope to inspire you to start the new season armed with ideas for creating an unforgettable Summer.

So allow me to introduce you Abbey from Gild & Grace with the first instalment of the series, who is going to share her decor inspirations for the warmer months...


Hi there, Abbey here from Gild & Grace. I'm very excited to be here at Little Bits of Lovely bringing you this guest post about great Summer decor! For me Summer decor is all about breezy whites, airy open spaces and bright pops of colour and pattern. Think Hamptons classic meets Palm Beach fun - all blended into a relaxed yet sophisticated finish by India Hicks....

Here are my decor style essentials for the summer season ahead:


Thank you Abbey for this gorgeous post. I'm already dreaming about endless Summer days at the beach; bbq's and cocktails!

Stay tuned for the second instalment next week,

Rachel xo
