Coastal Blues is a magnificent celebration of shoreside homes around the globe, offering decorative inspiration for all of us who love the ocean or dream of living by the homes from as far apart as the Bahamas and Denmark, authors Sally Hayden and Alice Whately begin by looking at the essential components of the coastal look - and texture, materials, furniture, fabrics, accessories and display. The second part of the book, The Spaces, takes a tour through the home room by room, from Living Spaces, Cooking and Eating Spaces to Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Outdoor Spaces, capturing the informal, easy-going interior style associated with living at the edge. But Coastal Blues is not only for those who live by the ocean. Whatever and wherever your home, from a high-rise apartment to a newly built home, you can create a simple, informal beachy feel. From tranquil living areas to balmy bedrooms and shipshape kitchens, Coastal Blues covers all the aspects of decorative seaside style.
