Summer is on the horizon, which means it’s time to get ready for long days on the beach, more time outdoors and gathering with loved ones for barbecues, picnics and dining alfresco. Which is all to say that Big W’s latest homewares range couldn’t have come at a better time. Stand out pieces from the range include striped velour beach towels, soft cotton sheets and colourful beach accessories that will keep you out of the sun’s rays in style.

Gary Chen, senior designer at Big W says the range “Captures the nostalgic feeling of past summer vacations – giving a modern twist to a traditionally retro look and feel. We’ve pulled through classic geometrics, checkerboard, stripes and sunburst patterns and paired them with a cohesive colour palette that feels current and modern.”

“The range is designed to mix and match easily with neutrals for an effortless, bohemian look and feel.”
