American Patriotic Style

Patriotic in red, white & blue

Classic American styling always goes down well in a beach house particularly
 when the style of architecture has it's roots in places like New England and the Hamptons.
I love the classic stars and stripes in the old red white and blue and I'm not even American!!!
I am a big fan of Ralph Lauren and Gant though 
and they really embrace that classic, all American style.
I think it's an especially great look for boys' bedrooms.

Organic Whites

Understated finishes are the key to a relaxed beach house feel.

Loving these simple and stylish interiors
layered in organic mterials and natural textures.
For maximum impact use a subtle palette of
white, pale grey, soft neutrals and rustic wood.

Colour Trend | Blush Pink

Blush PInk

Loving Pink

A Hint of Pink

Blush pink has always been one of my favourite colours but not since the eighties has it been seen so much in decorating. Finally it's shaken off it's sugary image and stands right up there as one of the key fashion colours for the home this season. Whether it's with paint, fabric or accessories, there are plenty of ways you can add a splash of pink to your spring palette. Pick up the tones by pairing pink painted walls with copper or rose metallic accents. Avoid a fussy look by keeping the styling effortlessly simple and clean-lined.

Mood Indigo





Indigo Crush

Bohemian style crush

I'm loving this mini trend that I am seeing for summer
of moody indigo blue in tie dye and bohemian prints.
Not only is it popping up on my radar in swimwear, sarongs, summer dresses and separates
but I'm seeing it in cushion covers and bedlinen. 
It's a great look for a beach house and it looks super sharp
when teamed back with crisp whites, warm timber, textured lighting
and a few boho or Moroccan accessories.
The lovely homewares featured above are from Shakiraz Designs.

A Summer House in Ibizia




Ibizia style








Natural, rustic style

This lovely summer home is located in Las Salinas, a natural park on the island of Ibiza. Designed primarily as a family holiday home, emphasis has been put on the outdoor areas to make the most of the summer months. The house, inspired by the traditional Balearic architecture, is decorated in a natural, rustic style with mainly natural materials and colors. The floor layout is simple and practical. By using the same materials and finishes throughout the house all spaces are integrated. When I see homes like this it reminds me of the beauty of simplicity. It looks like a great place to relax and unwind!

Bright & Breezy Californian Style

Pink & lemon

Californian Cool

A Peek into Two Roommates’ Sunny Santa Monica Home

Jillian Attaway and Allison Norton have been best friends for 20 years, so when given the opportunity to live together after graduation, they jumped at the chance. To say they nailed the laid-back California vibe is an understatement. Their sunny two-bedroom, two-bathroom home exudes charm and a sense of quirkiness. They managed to combine Jillian's preppy and sophisticated East Coast style with Allison's beach-inspired, modern sensibility to create a warm and welcoming space. I love the pretty pastel accents, the fifties-style bar cart and the bright yellow surfboard casually propped up against the wall in the living room.
