Scandinavian design is a constant source of beach house fabulousness (if there is such a word!). They are so successful at achieving the perfect balance between laid back simplicity, casual ease and chic style. Nothing appears too cookie cutter or contrived. Pieces are casually thrown together and layered with ease - there's always a lovely fresh combination of vintage, rustic, a dash of country and lashings of white paint. Colours are generally in tones of white, beige, taupe and grey with beachy accents in navy and red. With a backdrop of white and textured natural accessories their seaside cottages always have a fun, holiday vibe to them.
