Beach House Inspiration ... with a touch of black and white

Deirdre Brennan - Wednesday, January 06, 2016

With a view like this who needs colour … white highlights the natural tones and nature itself. 40.jpg

I love black walls with vivid white trim anywhere but particularly in a beach house.  It works brilliantly with earthy timber tones. 24.jpg

You can so easily bring in a smart pattern when you have a colour palette of predominantly white. 6.jpg

It is all in the detail … black of course !! 5.jpg

Or the floor … where rugs will become your focal point. 29.jpg

And just to set the scene …. 



outdoors this autumn

Autumn ... the last chance to enjoy entertaining in the garden.


Outdoor style ... masses of candles or twinkling fairy lights.


Crisp evenings .... throw rugs, cashmere wraps and campfires.
