Scandinavian Charm

When it comes to coastal style, I really prefer the mix of old with new. I like the idea of modern sofas in textured fabrics mixed back old vintage pieces and recycled timbers. I think the casual, relaxed feel that comes with weathered timbers, rustic pieces and flaky paints suits beach house living best. Hunt around antique markets and thrift shops for quirky one off coastal and nautical pieces that will add charm and character to your seaside retreat. Explore the beach and foreshore for pieces from nature you can use to decorate with...shells, branches, stones, feathers, cray pots, fishing reels, vintage bottles, glass floats, oyster openers etc...
