In this beautifully illustrated and designed book Tim Neve explores the many facets of coastal interior style and aims to both inspire readers and provide practical advice on how to capture this versatile aesthetic in our own homes. Each chapter represents a different interpretation of coastal style, from 'Beachcomber' (inspiration and decoration directly from nature), to 'Endless Summer' (capturing the zing and sizzle of childhood beach holidays), through to 'Nautical (Done Nice)' (maritime-inspired decor that is t kitsch) and 'Bohemian' (rich textures and patterns; time-worn combined with luxe). Interwoven throughout are mood boards, colour palettes, and stylist's tips and insider secrets to help you replicate the coastal feel in your own home.
