Summer by the sea
Bring the seaside home this summer with nautical touches, beachside souvenirs and stylish al fresco living accessories
29th June 2011 - 11:28
Take folding chairs, mats and cushions to the beach for seaside style, keeping things simple with enamel plates and melamine glasses.
Mix seaside-inspired accessories with beach finds and your favourite antiques.
Make the most of long summer days by taking the inside out and use a palette of reds, whites and blues to achieve the coastal New England look.
Don't hide your favourite summer things away, display them on a wall or along a shelf.
Antique maps add warmth and interest to whitewashed walls.
Use antique whites and natural materials for a fresh, laidback feel.
An outdoor shower adds a touch of beachside elegance.
