1 – The Inspiration
Take a voyage into this nautically inspired scheme. Imagine Crisp see air, contrasted with fluffy white clouds and offset by the sandy beige of a beautiful beach. But keep the look modern with graphic stripes and natural textures.
2 – The paints
The paints need to bring out the most of the sea. The nautical heritage thought us which are the best colours to live the real sea life. So lets have a look at their houses and get the best colours for the perfect match.

3 – The interior
Interesting Textures and materials , such as natural wood and linen, are key to this look. Recreate it by combining stripes with pale woods and inky shades of blue to black.
Use a pale base as your foundation, pairing wooden floorboards with clean white walls.
Keeps things simple with pendant and table lights in strict monochrome.
Combine slubby linens in shades of blue and beige for a relaxed, organic vibe.
Select tableware in natural or honest materials – think wooden candlesticks and serving boards, and glass tumblers contrasted with plain white porcelain plates.
Matching white walls with equally pale drapery will bounce light around your room.
Mix stripped cushions in shades of grey, blue and black for graphic impact.
Opt for simple furniture in pale wood or white, then add interesting, characterful touches with a few driftwood or craft-inspired accessories.
