Coastal Vibes with DFS

If, like us you'd like to hang on to that summer holiday feeling for just a little bit longer, you can't go wrong with a colour palette of blue against a fresh white backdrop. Weave in a few accessories that echo the colours and natural textures of the beach and you can enjoy that coastal vibe all year round.

A rough-sawn timber coffee table is reminiscent of driftwood, while a black sisal pendant light reminds us of fishermen's nets.

The white painted timber on the walls provides the perfect backdrop for a collection of blue and white, patterned and plain plates.

Keep the feeling casual with piles of comfy cushions and a warm throw for the chillier months. A blue and white rug anchors the coffee table and adds some subtle pattern.

Baskets, jugs and prints of nature continue the coastal theme and add bundles of interest and texture.

The DFS team travelled to a beautiful beach house located in Whitstable, Kent for these images and worked with stylist Karine Candice Kong to create a relaxed coastal interior.  Inspired by the beach houses that line Cape Town in South Africa, Karine wove together blues and indigos against a white backdrop, using the French Connection Coast sofa in Denim, available exclusively at DFS, as her focus.  The accessories featured were sourced from suppliers including Bodie and Fou, Swoon Editions and My Deer Art Shop, ranging from Β£30 to Β£420 in price.
