Bringing a hint of the coast into our homes conjures up gorgeous thoughts of sunny days, fresh air and a colour palette of beautiful blues and soft, sandy hues.
Reclaimed wood is a huge trend when it comes to coastal décor, and the Lewes bedroom range, made from recycled pine, has a sundried wheat finish that looks suitably maritime.
The collection includes a beautiful bedframe and variety of wardrobes, chests, cabinets and dressers to suit any size of room. I love the Lewes Blanket Box in particular – it’s the perfect piece to store bedding and towels – and looks perfect positioned at the end of the bed.
The curvaceous edges and shaker legs featured in the Two Door One Drawer Bedside Cabinet are simple yet beautiful – and spot-on for a nautical theme.
It wouldn’t be coastal without touches of blue, of course, in all its shades from cobalt to navy and sky. Opting for a classic blue and white stripe for bedding, curtains or wallpaper will add a timeless feel to your décor scheme that will never go out of fashion.
Accessories help in bringing out the blue, too – cluster glass bottles and vases such as the Airforce-Blue Short Neck Vase together on a shelf as a reminder of glass fishing floats, or add a beautiful-blue rug for comfort underfoot.
Throws and cushions provide an excellent complement to stripped floors and pale, pared-back furniture, adding interest to the room and providing comfort. I love this Wellesley Cushion for adding a hint of luxe.
Little touches mean a lot in this kind of scheme, and one of my favourite pieces in this room is the Antique Cream Sails Yacht. Sat on top of the Lewes Eight Drawer Dresser it combines a sculptural shape with a delicious reminder of childhood days.
Add plenty of cashmere throws to add super-softness to your room, and make it a truly inviting space where you can rest and let the world go by. The Arran Cream Throw with its chunky knit finish would work well.
For a rustic edge, opt for roughly-hewn coloured Recycled Vase with Raffia tied around the neck also add a hint of rustic seaside charm.
Finish with some tall candle lanterns to create warming pools of light at night, and sit back to admire the castaway charm. It’s the perfect way to bring all the coastal chic of your summer holidays into your home.
