Coastal Style

Friday 26 June 2015, Written by


If you love the relaxed coastal living style it's easy to adopt, from giving your entire home and garden a New England beach house makeover, or just hinting at a beachy look in your bathroom.

Use accessories, pictures and finds from the beach such as shells and driftwood pictures to great effect. Hues of blues, whites and creams are the perfect seaside palette, or you could go down the British beach hut route and introduce deck chair stripes. Tile wise, natural textures of wood (or wood effect), shell mosaicsfrosted glasspebbles and tumbled stone all work together to create a harmonious, relaxed and informal style.

This week's Style File gives more creative ideas for beach style, and as always, our Pinterest pages are full of inspirational images.
