How to Create a Bedroom Seaside Retreat

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Easter is over and summer is coming upon us.  We start to dream of our summer holidays when we whisk ourselves off to sunnier climbs.  We imagine ourselves on a quiet beach, lay in the sunshine, listening to the gentle sounds of the waves..... have I lost you?  A beach is such a relaxing place, wouldn't it be perfect to bring the essence of the beach into your bedroom?  Our coastal inspirational collection is perfect for a beach-side retreat. Beach huts are such a luxury item for those living by the coast, selling for thousands of pounds each, they completely symbolize the British seaside.  This garden shed would be a fantastic storage solution for your bedroom and could even be transformed into a wardrobe.

Apart from your main light, this can be done with lamps and candles.  The rope handle on the La Rochelle Lantern gives it a gorgeous seaside feel.

How fun are these charming wooden fishing boats. [caption id="attachment_2193" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Fishing Boat Upon The Waves. Redlilly £9.95 Fishing Boat Upon The Waves.
