How To

On Trend: Classic Coastal Charm

There is something so classic, sophisticated and serene about a well-designed Hampton’s scheme.

Natural and raw is the key to successfully styling in this classic coastal look. I like to mix up textures like linen fabrics, sisal materials, white washed timber and natural stone.

Layering is simple with classic nautical accents paired with furnishings such as vases, rugs, throws and scatter cushions. You can opt for sea inspired prints in accessories or simply style with block colours in whites, beiges and blues. I love how these hues are so timeless but also emanate a cool, calm composure.

Add a personal touch with curiosities like shells you’ve collected from a beachside getaway in striking glass vases or treasured family photos in raw timber frames.

Coco Republic has recently introduced new home décor collections from Oly San Francisco that adds seaside charm – including the Sea Urchin and Shell Ornament – Mauritius range. Browse some of my favourites below or visit for new arrivals.
