One of the big trends of summer, every summer..., is, of course, the coastal look. Everyone dreams of days by the sea filled with sun, sea and sand. To achieve a palette that whisks you away to your favourite seaside spot, have a look at these tried and tested tips. 

To start with, choose a muted palette of soft pinks, pale blues, sea-foam greens, creamy whites and sandy beiges. Add some warm tones and earthy details for your furniture and flooring.

Mix neutrals like pale blues and greyges with icecream inspired shades. Dress them up pops of vibrant turquoise and coral to create a resort-style look.

Complete the look with island-living inspired wood or rattan furniture and accessories by adding low seating, drift and reclaimed wood shelves, interestingly shaped by simple ceramics, hang some botanical prints or seascapes to capture that feeling of a day on the beach.
