Look what’s trending: coastal tones

coastal home interiors

Living by the sea in Wicklow, in Ireland’s scenic south-east, has made me fall in love with the coastal palette.

On a cloudy day, musky blues and calming greys dominate the sky. On a clear day, bright blues introduce the day and then transform into soothing hues of pink and orange in the evening.

The palette is always complemented by a sandy neutral, and that soft white that tips each breaking wave.

Here are some of my favourite coastal home accessories…
