Embrace the power of green

Utilising green power in your home, whether it’s by integrating plants like succulents to offer a ‘nature’ vibe to your home, colourful summer blooms to make your kitchen bright and cheerful, or even incorporating tropical or plant-led designs and accessories.There are some simple ways to reinvent your home or rental room. Plants are a great way to bring a bit of ‘greenery’ into your home, and they also provide a lot of health benefits. Plants and flowers have a demonstrated calming effect on anxiety while also lowering stress levels, a phenomenon known as symbiosis.

But what’s the point of plants if you don’t have an ultra unique and stylish vase? We are one step ahead here at Mila Maven, our gorgeous Femme Vase celebrates the female form like never before, as well as being the perfect accessory to display your gorgeous greenery and flowers.

Pops of colour and prints

For a swift summer home makeover, swap out minimalist furnishings with a monochromatic colour scheme for vibrant graphic cushions, fresh flowers, and vibrant, complex tableware for a quick summer home makeover. Adding splashes of colour or unique fresh prints like florals not only makes your home appear eye-catching, visually beautiful, and fun, but it also adds vitality to your home by allowing visitors to see your personality reflected in your home.

A really easy way to bring summer colours into your home is with our selection of Velvet Scallop Print Cushions, in sunset orange, sky blue and a sunny yellow. You can also use them as a cosy addition to your outdoor space or summer house!

Summer scents

Candles and reed diffusers fit into almost every style of surroundings and can be used as aesthetic props, both lit and unlit, as well as allowing smells to impact mood, offer well-being, and create a more personal atmosphere in the practising of various self-care rituals. There really aren’t any rules when it comes to candle decor, it’s just all about switching up the scents and placing them where you most feel at peace. 

Classic summer fragrances we all know and crave in the warmer seasons might be citrus, floral or something more luxurious like bergamot. Mila Maven has taken these seasonal favourites, but of course, added a unique twist. Designed to blend in with any home interior style, and fill your home or summer house with a long lasting fragrance, our Geranium, Eucalyptus and Orange Reed Diffuser perfectly alchemises zingy citrus and calming florals. 

If you prefer a warm, summer evening accompanied by a burning candle, can we tempt you with our exuberantly elegant Rock Rose & Pink Pepper scented candle? Rock rose is a Mediterranean native shrub, so this scent can really bring the feeling of holiday bliss and relaxation to your home. The Mila Maven apothecary range is really all you need for your summer home makeover.
