Update a traditional coastal look with these 6 modern twists
Spin 1: Industrial
Add interest to a traditional coastal look with hints of enamel. Red café chairs, an enamel pendant and a series of weathered metal jugs create an industrial feel, bringing this classic look bang up to date.
Spin 2: Boho
This Balearic scheme puts a luxe boho spin on the classic coastal look. Mixing and matching vibrant prints in ultramarine and cobalt keeps it fresh, whilst flowing linens and wooden textures have a chilled-out Ibiza vibe.
Spin 3: Nostalgia
Create a nostalgic feel by layering fabrics adorned in painterly prints, jolly seaside motifs and deckchair stripes. The all-white base gives these vintage patterns an easy-going lift, whilst recycled bottles and hand-picked shells add a personal touch.
Spin 4: Maritime
This masculine scheme offers a pared-back take on maritime style, where stylish leather, industrial metal accents and a neutral palette create a yacht-club-inspired look.

Spin 5: Breton
Give a coastal scheme a chic update with Breton-style stripes. From fabrics to ceramics, a simple pattern in blue and white is all it takes to put a contemporary spin on a seaside look – opt for a thick stripe for a bold punch of colour, or choose skinny stripes for a more subtle approach.
Spin 6: Graphic
These dynamic tiles add a bold new dimension to a simple blue and white scheme. Not feeling brave enough to cover an entire floor? Customise a table by tiling its surface, then team it with statement white furniture for a modern punch of colour.
