White with a Hint of Brown

A subtle touch of brown.

The new look cooastal palette embraces rusticity, texture and warmth.
This softer take on beach inspired decor transports you to a fisherman's cottage
on a stretch of rugged, wind-swept beach.
Earthy tones and textures reign supreme ~
think chocolate, greys and driftwood
complimented by beachcomber finds, natural stone, reclaimed timber,
worn leather and vintage wicker.
A lovely, cosy palette as we move into Autumn.

Mediterranean Dreaming



Turquoise Resort Report

Here's fun, casual look to take you from the chic hotel pool down to the local beach. 

Turquoise is the perfect colour for a Mediterranean holiday wardrobe reflecting the colours of the ocean, seaside ports and colourful fishing boats. This relaxed look will take you on a boat trip to the Blue Grotto, a little sightseeing around the village, a cool dip in the ocean and lunch at a waterfront restaurant dining on seafood and the local vino!

Scandinavian Chic : Focus On White


To create a Nodic beach feel in your home, follow these 5 simple guidelines ....

1.  Start with a blank canvas: Think white walls even white floors Bright white is the colour of choice in Scandinavia design then bring colours through the furniture and decor.

2.  Floors: Carpet never took off in Sweden and all truly Scandinavian interiors will have a wooden, preferably light or limewashed floor in all rooms apart from the bathrooms.

3.  Something Wooden: It is rare that you will find a Scandinavian home without the feature of wood used. Whether it be wooden beams across the ceiling, wall panelling or a divine wooden log stool, this creates a sense of warmth and organic texture in the home.

4.  Layered Textures: Add natural textures ~ the Swedes love leather, fur, hides and natural fibres like linen, cotton, hemp. This will not only bring visual warmth, but more importantly comfort! Think cowhide rugs, large knitted cushions, sheepskins, and woollen throws. Add some shells, driftwood, cane and sisal for a beachy feel

5. Let the Light In: is an important inclusion in Nordic design. The main goal is to bring and capture as much natural light as possible. That’s the reason for the usual absence of any window treatments. So tear down those curtains and let the light in! Keep all light fixtures simple, modern and minimalistic.

Caramel Inspiration




This Autumn caramel and tan will take the spotlight

As we head into Autumn it is time to transform your home and give it a seasonal update. Capture the spirit of the season by adding spice and warmth to your decor palette. This year we are seeing a lot of tan and caramel toned colours, especially in leather. This looks fabulous on slimline retro Danish style sofas, like those featured above. Cosy up your home with some knitted throws, wool cushions and warm blankets. You'll find that it's the small touches that go a long way when decorating your home for the autumn season.
