What does the phrase ‘The Spirit of Summer’ conjure up in your mind’s eye? Is it sitting in the sunshine (with skin protection of course) in your garden or on a faraway shore? Could it be the sight and smell of plants in full bloom? What about the smell and taste of food from a BBQ? Or more realistically,  listening to the pitter patter of raindrops on your window?

Well the “Spirit of Summer fair’ and “House Fair” at Olympia is all about how you can enjoy the season, in the comfort of your own home. It is a show with a reputation that attracts the most sought after interior designs in the UK.  Holy Cow Home is proud to be handpicked as one of the many independent boutiques to flaunt it’s larger items at the fair, and give you more ideas of how you to enjoy the longer days, while relaxing in/out doors.  Imagine sinking into the incredibly comfortable Kantha chair, with strikingly colourful patchwork,  reading a book and listening to the gentle pattering of rain outside.

Or indeed descend further onto the easy to lay, stunning wooden floor (see image below), onto a hand woven rug, with the added assurance (and fascination) that it is manufactured entirely from recycled plastic bottles. You could then slump onto the large soft floor cushion or leather pouffe.  That would be certain to make you feel all relaxed, warm and snug, regardless of what the British summer can throw at you.
