Have a Maritime Summer
The arrival of summer always directs our thoughts to the seaside. Sitting on a deckchair with our feet buried in warm sand, exploring what the piers have to offer and dipping our toes into the shoreline sea. Transferring this peaceful and relaxed way of life into our homes remains firmly on-trend this summer.
Cool blues and whites typify a coastal theme and incorporating dune-grass greens can create a charming and inviting space. If you’re looking for more elegance, then opt for statement stripes featuring navy blues and contrasting stark whites rather than paler beach tones.
Champion your coffee table space with a feature basket of natural sea treasures, including seashells and weathered glass. Displays of driftwood can also add to the nautical theme and create a talking point amongst your guests. Bring depth into your soft furnishings by mixing up the textures. Try blending cotton materials with natural textured fabrics – such as your fabric sofa complemented by sisal cushions.
For a more dramatic change, consider exposing bare brick walls, contrasted with a whitewashed wooden floor. This can form the perfect backdrop for your coastal theme. The Cayman in Hopsack Emerald, complemented by scatter cushions in our beautiful palette of blue hues can create a traditional seaside escape with that classic feel.
Are you inspired to give your space a nautical lift? Bring the coastal look into your home to have that peaceful, relaxing environment all year round.
