By the sea - Marine - Coastal Bedrooms

 

There's a feeling of wellbeing that comes with living by the sea.

The smell of the brine from the ocean, blue blustery skies, sun baked sand, weatherbeaten and sunbleached wood, bold and bright holiday colours and the hypnotic sounds of lapping water combine to give beach life the feelgood factor.
Recreate some of this nautical niceness with our round up of beach hut beauties.

Feel like you’re on holiday all year-round by giving your home a bright and breezy beach house look.
Beachside cottages have a unique, charming and nostalgic look that goes hand-in-hand with the sights and smells of your treasured sunny holidays. So why not evoke those happy thoughts and memories year-round by treating your own home to a little seaside style.

Recreate this bright and breezy look by adding colours and textures into your bedroom that conjure up blue skies and warm sunny days. The beauty of this nostalgic look is that it looks better the more lived-in your furniture and accessories get.


Canvas and calico have a nautical association, so for comfort, opt for big, squashy sofas in cream and add colour in the form of cushions in bright blue or red ticking fabric and natural linen.

Keep windows simple. If you're a fan of fabric, choose gently folding Roman blinds in a simple cream calico that are reminiscent of a ship's sails, or go for whitewashed shutters and add etched glass effect film to overlooked windows to ensure privacy.
If you have a favourite collection such as china, keys, hats, walking sticks, black and white photos or old tins, create a display area to add a little history and nostalgia to the theme.

Finally, details make all the difference, so add a mix of accessories to conjure up memories of the beach such as rope tie backs on curtains, battered wooden planters, green fishermen's floats, wooden boats, nautical pictures and shell, driftwood and pebble displays. Take a look at our sure-fire winners for creating seaside styles.

 

Decorating Tips: Create your own oceanfront view with decor that makes you feel like you're on vacation. Incorporate a variety of objects into your room, like wicker, seashells, starfish, light houses, sand, sisal and jute rugs, framed photos of the beach, postcards, plants, trees and other art. Other key elements of our By The Sea style are: Bright Lines; raw, sunbleached simplicity; blue and white with natural wood.
