Those lazy hazy days of summer make us here at Country Days want to head on down to the beach. And if you want to recreate that coastal feel in your own home, this beautiful living room certainly paves the way.
Seaside living is all about relaxed style, with cool cotton fabrics, natural textures and maritime-themed accessories.
Blue and white is the classic coastal palette, but injecting red into the mix warms up the look and adds depth. We love the fabrics in this scheme, which are part of the evocative Coast collection by Prestigious Textiles – a selection of fabrics featuring beach huts, seagulls, sailboats and shoreline treasures in iconic vintage style, with a jaunty stripe used as an eyecatching foil.

Emphasise the coastal theme further with some contemporary style driftwood side tables, rope doorstops, glass floats and natural flooring.
