Relaxed coastal

Coastal is one of those cyclical trends that never goes out of style. For this season we’ve created a ‘relaxed coastal’ look, which gives a nod to the beach without the retro chintz that is so often associated with the coastal trend. Instead, this style is all about classic colour combinations, subtle details and smart accessorizing.

Sage greens, muted blues and royal navy’s are mixed with wood, rattan, pebble and jute for a coastal feel that will look good all year.

Coastal doesn’t automatically mean blues; introduce a soft mint green to tie the scheme in without being predictable. The pastel hues of the mint complement the coastal-inspired accessories perfectly and offers a fresh twist on the style.

Minimalist chic

Grey has proven itself to be the understated neutral that will never go out of style. Elegant and timeless while still being modern, it goes with pretty much any and every décor or colour scheme. We love the contrast of the deep blue against the monochrome tiles and chic grey laminate.

The new seaside chic

Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside… embrace the more traditional elements of the coastal trend, but with a modern twist. Timeless stripes look fresh and classic in any room and have particular impact when used on stairs. A white wooden bed ties in the scheme perfectly.

Neutral, but nice

The best thing about neutral-coloured carpets is that they go with anything. Embrace the current trend for wooden and bamboo furniture and décor with plenty of greenery to introduce colour.

Go bold with your flooring and immerse yourself (and your room!) in this fantastic floor – it even has a raised texture for each pebble! Delicate, but still enough to make a statement, this fun flooring is the epitome of the coastal trend. Get extra points by styling and accessorising with pale blues, mint greens and sea shells or coral for that true seaside-y ambience.
