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.

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!
