Provence casts the mind to fields of lavender, balmy evenings and a laid-back, sunny lifestyle. The style merges indoors and out, so consider investing in metal tables and chairs that work both inside and in the garden. Adorn them with blankets and cushions in beautifully sunny colours.

Mediterranean interior design styles are awash with earthy colours of blues and greens that echo the sea and sky, and warm terracottas, lavenders and yellows.
