The Call of The Sea

This post has been inspired by a postcard sent to me by my dear friend Sarah from Goose Home and Garden.  She also sent me a beautiful old guide book of Sussex as that is where we are spending our holidays this summer; two whole weeks by the seaside in Agatha the caravan.

We are also blessed with living on the north east coast within easy reach of many a lovely stretch of sandy beach and the openness of the sprawling wild waters of the North Sea.  We love going for long walks along our coast line, blowing away the cobwebs or having fun in the sand dunes in warmer months.

I always come home with a pocket full of shells or driftwood that I can’t quite manage to leave behind, they make for wonderful still life displays around the home.

The ever changing colour palette is truly awe inspiring, it is said that you should always look to nature to be inspired and being by the sea really does highlight the serenity I crave.

To create a little bit of the seaside feel in your home without it being a bit twee is an easy thing to achieve.  Using the paler end of the spectrum for wall and floor surfaces using  slubby linens and natural wood within the scheme to add warmth.  Glassware filled with shells, oyster baskets for storage and elements of deep browns and blues in your chosen soft furnishings will bring to look together perfectly.
