Seaside Interiors

 “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside”

There is something magical about interiors that are inspired by the seaside, its like bringing the outside in, nature and all that jazz.

Simple and chic, love the white panelling on the walls James Solomon Photographer.

James Radin is the personal designer to film maker Nancy Meyers, the King of seaside interiors, remember the films “Somethings Gotta Give” and “The Holiday” check out my post on Movies Interiors.

Ralph Lauren the Daddy of the blue and white stripe, check out his new collection La Plage which in his own words  “Captures the tranquil elegance of the seaside with an artful mix of chic and rustic elements and endless nautical shades of blue and white”. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

The Blue and white stripe is very popular when trying create this theme, picture from Elle Decor.

Blue is the perfect colour for the bedroom, a lot of people think it’s a cold colour, its like every colour, its how you use it and the shade of blue. Check out my post on Happy Spring Time for ideas, for inviting this lovely colour into your home.

Scrub that deck, bring elements from the ocean, such as this remarkable ship into your home, it can bring a calming effect into your house, Mark Darley Photography.

Stick em up


I think they are a bit like Marmite, you’ll either love em or hate em, they have become increasingly popular and due to the demand, wallstickers are getting better and better. Heres a few of my favourite, from Ferm Living, Danish Company.

Love these owl stickers, only things is, you can never move the stools or they will fall off, lol.

How much is that? you’ll need a giant scanner for this barcode.

“I thought I saw a pussy cat, I did, I did”.

Who planted that tree there? just don’t let the dog see it.

Ahhhhhh, all the lovebirds in a row, wheres my camera.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could really do this, ” I’ll just cut the window out and put it over there, where the sun is shining”.

Genius, Just once a bird doesn’t land on the wire and crap on your head.

You should definitely give wallstickers a go, if you don’t like them, you can just pull them off, they can add so much fun and imagination to your room, go on, try them out.
