Ease into summer with pebble shades, weather-worn textures and seaside motifs for a modern nautical scheme.

 Bring Seaside Style Into Your Living Room

Love this living room

  • Forget bold, nautical shades – this look is all about a soft, grown-up coastal palette. Start by choosing a classic sofa shape in a pale shade of sea green.
  • Texture is key to preventing this look becoming too tonal. Wooden-plank-style wallpaper, bare wood fl ooring and a pebble-inspired rug add both warmth and interest.
  • Search out sea-worn objects from holidays or the high street, such as shells, ropes and buoys for an affordable short cut to instant character.

 

Styling Tip

Display a collection of vintage and contemporary postcards on driftwood offcuts, using natural twine and mini wooden pegs to secure in place.

Good Idea

For a wall gallery with a beach-house twist, pin rope offcuts behind framed snaps of favourite holiday destinations.

 

Sea green and soft teal

Mix shoreline colours with classic seaside details.

Frame Works

Use the tops of picture frames as a place to display favourite shells, pebbles and beachcombed treasures.

 

Flower Power

Create a relaxed coffee table display by mixing colourful blooms with delicate foliage in a jug.
