She Sells Seashells on the Seashore

This phrase evokes a wonderful sense of nostalgia with images of long sandy beaches, sun bleached driftwood, naive string of shells hanging in the neck, reckless abandon while frolicking in the warm waters… an envelope of peace and well being.

As many of us are now taking ‘staycations’ or holidaying within the UK, English seaside scenes have also become a prominent theme on soft furnishings. For your living room or bedroom, soft furnishings and linens in aquatic colours – blues, greens and whites – will help create the nostalgia. Take a look at these inspiration images inspiring the nautical theme.

Great British Seaside

We are particularly digging this trend for the bedrooms – what wonderful calm at the end of a hectic day! Now all it needs is Frank Sinatra serenading in the background…purrfect!

About Purvaai Home Decor

Purvaai, which means ‘Winds from the East’ in the ancient language Sanskrit, explores and reflects the diversity of Indian art and craft, its cultural influences and a plethora of relationships, which nurture creativity and ingenuity. The range of Indian handicrafts is as diverse as the sub-continent itself. At Purvaai, we aim to share the knowledge about these ancient crafts and create an awareness and appreciation of many of the lesser-known techniques. Our unique designs largely use locally sourced natural fabrics, handcrafted textiles and traditional Indian embroidery techniques. Our product range, which includes cushions, throws and bedspreads, will enliven your home through exquisite art-like designs. The designs are not only reminiscent of vibrant India but also resonate with all the elegance of modern Indian design.
