Ease into summer with pebble shades, weather-worn textures and seaside motifs for a modern nautical scheme.
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.
Display a collection of vintage and contemporary postcards on driftwood offcuts, using natural twine and mini wooden pegs to secure in place.
For a wall gallery with a beach-house twist, pin rope offcuts behind framed snaps of favourite holiday destinations.
