    Ahoy to a new range of gorgeous sailcloth furniture! The clever folks at Quba & Co have expanded on their collection of nautical inspired clothing, with a range of stylish sofas, armchairs, deckchairs and beanbags.

    The Devon-based company cleverly transforms the hardwearing, traditional white sailcloths into unique pieces for your home. They’re adorned with bold coloured racing numbers and letters, which can be customized so you can add your own individuality – your initials or a lucky number perhaps?

    With a distinctly grown up take on the nautical trend, these pieces are sure to be a taking point in any coastal home. Even if you don’t live by the sea they’re a great way to add a touch of sophisticated coastal chic to a country house.

    All things bright and beautiful…

    I don’t know about you, but there is something so heartening about seeing a home filled with vibrant colours and bold patterns. All too often people feel restricted when it comes to decorating and as a consequence, choose something far removed from their personal taste simply because they think it is appropriate.  This beautiful living room features in Homespun Style by interiors stylist Selina Lake (£19.99, Ryland Peters & Small), and shows that you don’t have to choose a muted shade on the walls in order to complement a bold floral design on a sofa. On the contrary, the strong blue colour on the walls only enhances the sofa rather than overpowers it. Would you be tempted to go for something similar in your own home?

    The pretty yet bold floral design on this sofa looks simply perfect against the vivid blue walls. Perfect for a contemporary country living room.
