FRAME DESIGNS

Inspired by summer days at the beach, gentle waves and fresh sea air - the coastal interior trend has a calming influence on you and your home.

Coastal is all about the beach, it’s about using plenty of natural light along with soft tones to create that ultimate waterside vibe. To create an inviting and organic space try incorporating blended blues, whites and soft greys with natural, limewashed materials. With the addition of some delightful nautical themed wallpaper and accessories you're well on your way to your dream beach house escape.

"Aged, worn and distressed, or chalky, matt and rough – furnishings with these qualities are an integral part of the look"

"Try keeping the walls neutral and then introduce the colour through accessories"

COLOURS

Subtle, cool and warm neutrals pair with ice cream inspired shades to create a beautiful summer feeling all year round.

Blue, white and sandy shades make up the majority of these schemes, but you can inject bolder hues like turquoise and red to make things more interesting.
