INSPIRATION GALLERY: Coastal decorating ideas

July 10, 2010

Scorching day, check! Geeky sun hat, check! Off to the beach, check! I’ve always wanted my very own little beach hut to escape to and more importantly, decorate with cute coastal colours and accessories (a girl can dream!) There’s something calming about cool blues and crisp whites mixed with bleached-out wood. Just have a look at these lovely ideas (you’ll find loads more at House to Home)

Retro Ercol furniture wouldn’t necessarily be the most obvious choice for a nautical room, but the dining chairs and coffee table work perfectly here as the smooth, curved edges have an almost wave-tumbled look, like rounded pebbles. For something more traditionally seasidey, these rooms are packed with classic stripes and painted wood furniture..

Hope you’ll have the chance to be beside the seaside this weekend… pop back next week for some extra shots from Emma’s tranquil listed cottage in Devon and a really clever furniture makeover. See you then!
