Giving a room a fresh look for the season can give your whole home a new lease of life. And it doesn’t have to be a huge makeover. Something as simple as changing your soft furnishings or bringing in some greenery can make all the difference.

Something that never fails to give a room a new vibe is a fragrance. Using an Ambi-Pur 3volution is a great way to lift a room with a delicate, fresh scent. The plug-in automatically changes between three scents every 45 minutes, so you’ll notice the new scent each time it changes. Voted 2018’s Product of the Year under the General Household category by UK consumers, it’s a valuable addition to your home, no matter what the decor.

But if you do want to change things up, take a look at our top five summer décor looks, and the perfect Ambi-Pur 3volution scent to complement them.

1. Ice-cream colours

What’s a summer without ice cream? And now, as well as licking it off a cone (mint choc chip for us, please), you can deck your home out in bubblegum pinks, baby blues, mint greens and, of course, vanilla.

You don’t want it to look sickly sweet, so keep walls clean and white, and pick out the ice cream shades in photo frames, chairs, cushions, throws and ornaments. To really boost the seaside vibe, complement the colour palette with nautical stripes, rope and natural woods.

The perfect scent: the sweet but subtle scent of Ambi-Pur 3volution ’s Vanilla Bouquet will perfectly match your yummy ice-cream colours.

2. Have fun with foliage

A house plant or two is always a lovely way of bringing nature into your home, and this summer it’s all about amping that up. Think hanging plants tumbling off high shelves, cute pot plants on tables, big leafy plants springing out of corners, and succulents and herb pots lining windowsills.

Bring in some rattan furniture and green furnishings to really embrace the look.

The perfect scent: while plants will already add a lovely fresh scent, why not add a touch of the exotic with an Ambi-Pur 3volution in Thai Orchid?

3. 50 shades…

No, we’re not recommending you create a red room in your home (although if you want to, why not?). This is about layering multiple shades of the same colour, and the key is to go from dark on the bottom to light on the top.

So, for example, layer a black cast iron bed frame with charcoal sheets, a smoky grey duvet cover, silver cushions and a dove grey throw. This adds interest without losing sophistication.

The perfect scent: in the bedroom, you can’t beat the smell of freshly cleaned sheets. So keep this going with an Ambi-Pur 3volution in Cotton Fresh. Bliss.

4. All that glitters…

Metallics never really go away, so embrace this look and it will be on trend for seasons to come. Go bold with shiny pendant lightshades, bevelled-edge mirrors, and geometric side tables, or team yellow gold and royal blue soft furnishings for a rich and luxurious look.

The perfect scent: you’ll want to complement this luxurious look with a rich, woody fragrance. The Ambi-Pur 3Volution in Oriental Retreat would be perfect for this space.

5. Colour pops

Really rich, bright colours are pushing out the neutrals, so it’s time to have some fun.

Think of the vibrant colours of Mexico and choose two key colours, such as orange and blue. Then mix it up with blocks of colour teamed with patterns – so a bold blue sofa with bright orange and blue patterned cushions, for example. With this look, every day is a fiesta!

The perfect scent: your room will look like summer, so it may as well smell like summer too. Ambi-Pur 3Volution in Blossom and Breeze is perfect.
