    If you haven’t got time to get down to Cornwall for the weekend then bring the coast to you. Simple woven rugs in taupe, plus wicker baskets, chains of dainty shells and a pale blue palette will instantly add the sound of lapping waves to city life.

    Stay in a little hut in the Amazon jungle with an evergreen design. Whether finished in a vibrant emerald hue or simply in black and white, the stencil of a few canopy leaves instantly add a tropic topic to any interior.

    Make it to Morocco

    Make it to Morocco with an intimate seating area like this one. The trick is to clash stripes, geometrics and chevron prints in similar shades to create a fashion that looks collected and not chaotic.

    Dive into an ocean of blue with an overload of the pigment. Royal blue mixed with punches of peacock, tones of teal and sightings of stone will add different dimensions to your underwater, diving dream scene.
