This week, we saw unassuming renovations take place as well as budget-friendly ways to update the interior and exterior of your home. Summer is well and truly on its way, so now comes the time we can dust off the cobwebs and start to plan all the things we want to do around the house. This might be something as simple as cleaning out the garden shed, or as complex as planning the parties you'll host. Whatever the reason, you can check out our top 5 ideabooks from this past week for inspiration. Take a look…

1. A dream home for summer parties

The summer months are fast approaching, which means those who love to entertain can start to stock their bar fridges and get the outdoor area prepared. In our number one project for this week, we see a typical English terrace home transformed into the perfect destination to host those summer soirées!  If you'd like to tour again through this stellar summer home, click here.

It can be hard living in the city sometimes, especially in areas like London which are densely built and populated. The occupants of this home have been afforded a stunning luxury—they can feel as though they've escaped to the countryside every time they step through the front door. To see how the architects made it possible, click here.

3. Industrial chic meets modern design

This period property in London says one thing on the outside, but tells a totally different story on the inside. From one point of view, you see a stunning traditional detached frontage, but the interior reveals a stunning combination of chic retro furniture! To view the project in full, click here.

4. Five pallet furniture ideas

The pallet furniture trend is in full swing, with building companies now having to chain their pallets down at the end of the day to stop enthusiastic DIY'ers from stealing them to realise their home living ambitions. If you've acquired some pallets, you might not know what to do with them—so that's why homify is here to help! Is your DIY spirit calling? Check out the 5 ideas again here.

5. Landscaping for less: Garden renovation ideas

Landscaping or renovating your garden doesn't have to cost you an arm and leg; in fact, with the help of our homify experts, we've proven that it's possible to overhaul your prized outdoor space for a lot less than you might think! Get your green thumb prepared and see the tips here
