Summer Cool Off

Cool down on a hot summer's day with ...
a swim in the pool
a dip in ocean
a bowl of raspberry sorbet straight from the freezer
or a homemade raspberry popsicle.

Skin Deep


Living and holidaying on the coast can leave your skin feeling dry and parched.
A day at the beach with sun, salt and wind will all play their part in dehydrating your skin so it's important to replace that lost moisture.

Creams, lotions and potions are keys to locking moisture into your skin. This works wonders for temporarily plumping fine lines and smoothing dry patches, leaving the skin to appear hydrated, fresher and more youthful.

Natural Selection

To create a relaxed, natural feel in your beach house combine modern furniture with textured elements and reclaimed timber. Mix old with new and modern with organic to create rooms that are down-to-earth and inviting. Pieces with age, texture and character will add warmth and interest to your scheme. Consider hand crafted pieces like a hand knitted chunky wool throw and homemade cushions. Furniture upholstered in natural materials like linen, cotton and leather set against a backdrop of rustic timber, coir, sisal, natural stone, lining boards, white washed cane and bamboo will create a low-key, pared back, natural looking beach house that makes you want to kick back and relax!

Tropical Chic

Tropical chic

TRopica; Vibe

Capturing the spirit of the Bahamas and the Caribbean
these fresh inspiring interiors pay hommage
to exotic tropical island destinations with a relaxed, tropical feel.
Crisp white, fresh greens, a splash of vibrant colour,
natural textures, cane furniture, sisal rugs and palm trees
all contribute to a laid back tropical vibe.

Love Shack Fancy

Right now I am loving all the tied dyed homewares that I'm seeing around at the moment.
So you can imagine my excitement when I came across these summery dresses from
There're just the thing I need for entertaining on the deck on balmy, summer nights
- casually chic and perfect for beachside parties!
