Drop your anchor and reach for your binocs, there’s a new trend on the horizon. Following on from the sailor-sharp looks bobbing up and down on the fashion catwalks, nautical style is now sailing into our homes – although to be honest it never really went away. Feel like your living in a stylish summer house in the Hampton’s with the following suggestions:
Occa‘s New England Nauticals range of blue, white and red cushions (above) are a classic accessory that never date.
It only takes one item from the delightful range by Dutch designers AM to add nautical charm to your home. In particular, we love its unique Oxford Varsity coatstand and fun and practical storage stools.
Parlane International sells worn wooden painted accessories such as beach signs and carved wooden seabirds to add character.
These mugs from Gallery Thea really capture the nostalgic mood of a British summer time by the sea. Designer Thea Cutting hand paints her designs to order and, living by the sea, has her inspiration on her doorstep.
Sainsbury’s has refined the relaxed, coastal look using a beach-house palette of calming blues and understated neutrals in its furnishings and fixtures. We’re imagining sitting in this deckchair watching the sun go down with a glass of Pimms…pure bliss.
Notonthehighstreet.com‘s signs are the perfect finish. Til next time…
