Inspiration, Interior Style, Nature & the Coast

Coastal Inspiration…..

Yesterday was such a WARM and fairly sunny day and thankfully it was a day I had already planned to take off.

So we seized the opportunity and packed up some chicken sandwiches, lemon drizzle cake and a flask of tea and headed to one of the beaches nearby.

The name of the beach we went to this time is known as ‘Pennycomequick’.

It’s a bit of a mucky trek but great for collecting flotsam & jetsam – especially oyster shells.

When I am looking for inspiration in an Interior I would often turn to nature for colours and textures. See how this shot I took yesterday has such beautiful warm browns and greys – evoking a calmness.

Those colours are echoed in this sitting room belonging to Arne Maynard

This shot below of The Jerusalem Tavern in the City of London illustrates how simplicity is achieved in the use of natural materials and the blue-greys and browns that we have just seen in the shot above…

This final interior shot in a house by Victor Mutton is the epitome of style – achieved through faded comfy linens and cottons complementing the darker colours of the paintings and frames.
