With summer fast approaching we're drifting towards all things nautical. On trend for both interiors, and fashion, it's time to head to the coast with a calming palette of whites, blues and greys for that quintessentially seaside look.
Nautical New England inspired retailer Lexington Company are great for classic pieces which won't date. Bring in the cool sea breeze with their classic deckchair, perfect for lazing in the garden or taking to the beach. Visit lexingtoncompany.com to view their Summer 09 collection and find your local stockist.
For a more subtle nautical addition these shabby chic hand carved birds are perfect. I love these tonal blues and greens with chalk white. Untreated driftwood accessories are a favourite of mine too, the knowledge it has floated across endless oceans brings with it, absolute tranquility and serenity.

I find Lucyina's style utterly faultless. With earthy, organic undertones these neutral colours create beautiful interiors. The composition, the shapes and the palette sit so comfortably together - I'm in awe of the simple purity she creates, a seemingly effortless style.
