A beachside escape is one of life’s little luxuries, a summer ritual for urbanites looking to take a break from the pace of city life. This season, influenced by the undeniable allure of our pristine beaches, modern seaside elegance is stealing the spotlight. Whether you’re heading to the beach-house or enjoying a stay-cation at home, there’s every excuse to give your space a seasonal update this summer.
Coastal style should be your personal interpretation, inspired by a wish, a memory or your location. From plantation to nautical, the Hamptons to the Mediterranean, the undertone is relaxed and refined for light, breezy interiors that evoke a sense of long carefree days and balmy nights, ice-creams and bare feet, sun, sand and sky…
Traditional beachcomber motifs are making way for a new wave of 2016’s coolest coastal accents. Think natural textures, tailored stripes and botanical flourishes, for a sophisticated and modern retreat.
Rework a statement piece of furniture, add some throws and floor cushions, update a lampshade, highlight your window treatments and energise your outdoor entertaining space. Think crisp fresh slipcovers, abundant linen textures, sisal underfoot and sheers that float into the room to brush against timber features. Make less of a statement and create more of a feeling. Remember for summer, the living is easy….
A change is as good as a holiday! What will you be doing to refresh your outlook this season?
Fabrics featured are from our collections Galliot, Maritime, and Axella.
