Summer Decorating Inspiration from 5 Famous Interior Designers

Thinking of decorating your home this summer? We’ve been inspired by some of the world’s most famous interior designers including David Bromstad and Candice Olson, to bring you home decorating tips to make your home shine.

David Bromstad
In 2006, Miami-based Bromstad won the first season of hit show HGTV Design Star, which skyrocketed his career as an interior designer. Since then, he has been the star of his own design show Color Splash as well as Summer Showdown. David’s approach to interior design is all about colour. He believes that incorporating bold colours in a space can add life and energy to a room, or garden, which is perfect for summer. From adding a small splash of colour with accessories or painting the walls an interesting shade of teal, David isn’t afraid to be bold with colour. If you love colour, check out his website for inspiration.
