Coastal Living

Take a look at our coastal inspired interior style guide for some nautical themed inspiration... read more

Most of us dream about living somewhere near the sea or having a little Cornish cottage on the coast we can visit when we fancy some salty sea air. For most of us this isn’t possible, however, it doesn’t mean that with a few helpful tips you can’t manage to embrace that nautical vibe.

Introduce a coastal touch to your interior with our beautiful nautical themed home wear and accessories. Whether you live by the sea or in the city our range of coastal inspired prints and accessories, perfect for giving your décor a refreshing makeover. Discover cosy throws and cushions, kitchen accessories, bed linen, lighting and decorative wall art inspired by the sea and in a classic palette of red, white and blue.

2 From chalk blue through to indigo, cool blue and white tones will embrace the inspiration from the tranquillity and peace that the colour blue embodies. Go for colours and patterns that are designed to look sun-bleached, like our blue chalk paint and wallpaper.

1 For a contemporary look team with our dramatic Henshaw furniture range, or go for a more traditional cream range like our Dorset and Bramley furniture.

6 Stripes, stripes and more stripes. This is the go-to pattern for any home interior when it comes to coastal living. Whether you have a stripe wallpaper, curtain or sofa or opt for a more subtle look with a simple cushion or accessory, you won’t go wrong with this design.

5 If you want a more minimal look but still want to keep to the nautical theme, focus on adding small hints and accessories around your home. Look for anything with a bird or boat motif that will make sure you feel as close to the coast as possible.

3 White or neutral tones create a great beach hut vibe – coordinate with sand-coloured flooring or carpet. White linen and light materials will work wonders with wicker style baskets, draws and storage to echo the coastal style.

7 For the ultimate finishing touches a seascape canvas on the wall paired with beach ornaments such as seashells, coral and beach pebbles will bring the whole theme together.
