Cool Blue, Mellow Yellow - Or Dare To Be Bolder! 

Get the holiday look in your home with the stores in Swindon town centre

Holiday Look Swindon town centre
There tends to be one big problem with going on holiday during the summer - it's coming home again!

All those thoughts of a warm week or two of beautiful sun, clear blue skies and the sea put to one side until this time next year.

Or maybe not!

Why not be inspired and bring a little of that relaxing, happy holiday feel to your home.

Cool blue, mellow yellow or perhaps you dare to be bolder..... we've taken a quick look at what's on offer at the major stores in Swindon town centre for living room, bathroom and kitchen ideas that'll help keep you in a wonderful summery mood all year long.


Their new store in The Parade boasts a fantastic homeware department full of fresh and bright ideas.

We particularly like their Maison Vintage Linen Cupboard range with items and accessories for all rooms in the house.

Choose from bold, blue luxurious bath towels for a reminder of the beach or more subtle, femine cotton bed sheet and covers. If Cornwall is your favourite holiday destination then you'll find something here you'll love.

Debenhams never disapoint on homeware, especially the accessories that really make the difference.

On their second-floor you'll find plenty to choose from if you're thinking of adding just a splash of summer sun to your living room.

Designer cushions in yellow or more subtle lemon - some from a little as 6 - are ideal; vibrant yet minimal, and perfect for a hassle free finishing touch.

Top tip: curtains and blinds - if you didn't know, Debenhams also offer a superb range of ready-made curtains and blinds if you fancy making much more of a contemporary colour change.

House of Fraser Outlet

It's downstairs this time for some seaside inspiration, where House of Fraser have made a real effort to show off their range of tableware and cool blue accessories.

Dinner table sets in different tones of ultramarine make a striking statement as do bits and bobs like mugs, cups and saucers in nautical stripes.

Our only advice, though, is don't overdo it on the brash blues! Just one or two pieces will keep the room from looking like a seafront gift shop!

Top tip: dark furniture - tables, chairs and leather sofas in dark colours are the ideal contrast for blues and yellows, so why not check out the range on offer at House of Fraser while you're there. At Outlet prices you may just find the larger items are a lot more affordable than you think.

Marks & Spencer

Their linen range in pastel blues and summery yellows are perfect if you want to bring a spot of sunshine to the bedroom.

But for a seasonal aroma as well as look, we recommend their coastal range of candles and scents for the home. Very beach hut chic and very relaxing!

And if sitting back and thinking of your hard-earned holiday means a nice glass of wine or two or a beer, check out M&S's selection of glassware too!
