Coastal Charm

You dont have to live by sunny shores to take on a coastal theme, with all this cold, bleak weather a touch of the seaside is a perfect look to update your home & brighten your spirits.

Be inspired by the elements with blues, aquas & neutral tones like beige & sand. Whether you choose pale blues with crisp whites for a calming influence or pops of bright blues & aquas to perk up a tired looking room, its not all about the beach themed bathroom. This year soft beiges paired with blues & chocolate browns make a beautiful modern lounge & cool blue walls with soft white linens make for a classic vintage feel bedroom.

Folding shutter doors are a big thing this year & give that feeling of being shut away in an island santurary. Wicker furniture or natural chunky wood for larger furniture pieces sets a perfect mood. But if your not looking to invest in big pieces why not update furniture with a lick of paint in blues or aquas to add some charm.
Accessories like distressed wood picture frames & mirrors add to a vintage beach feel. Choose wooden blinds to dress your windows or hang white voile curtain panels for a softer finish. Mosquito netting above the bed along with white linens gives a romantic touch.  

Nautical themed accesories like blue & white striped pillows & fabrics are typically associated with a classic coastal theme but you can opt for fabrics in bright pops of colour for a more tropical feel. Add palms & other greenery to add tropical elements & give the feeling of a far away oasis.

You can give a romantic getaway feeling to the outside of your home as well. Escape to a corner of your garden & pretend to be on distant shores. Add a canopy above a bench to make a quiet place to read a book. Opt for these clever water proof cushions from & you dont even have to worry about the tricky British weather catching you out. They certainly glam up the garden dont they.
