Follow Florestine’s Tips For Fabulous Seaside Style Rooms...
Summer’s coming. The seaside’s calling... If you can’t spend all summer on the beach, then bring the seaside home. Take your pick from coastal style gifts and home accessories boutique florestine’s top tips for fabulous seaside style rooms.
1. Coastal living room: A sculptural driftwood mirror handmade from sea-weathered driftwood planks and decorated with sea glass will definitely gather compliments. Complete the look with a couple of tall, chunky driftwood candlesticks either side of the fireplace. Encourage seaside dreaming by hanging evocative coastal prints on the walls - far better than the telly!
2. Coastal bedroom: drift off to sleep with pleasant seaside dreams... Our gorgeous handmade shell wreath and lovingly handmade driftwood hearts ooze coastal chic. Starfish, driftwood and pebble lamps make sculptural and stylish bedside lamps.
3. Coastal bathroom: make your bathroom a watery seaside haven. Fill a shelf with your favourite shells or decorate with a gorgeous fair-trade sculpture of a trio of dolphins. Hang a bunch of hand-carved fish over the towel rail and swap your standard light pull for a chrome seahorse version. Finish off with a sailboat decorated handmade peg rack for towels and dressing gowns.
4. Coastal child’s room: every child loves the sea so why not spoil them with a few splashes of seaside style? Tidy their books with decorative boat bookends. Hang bright beach hut peg racks on the walls to keep their clothes tidy. Create a shoal of brightly coloured wooden fish. Sail a flotilla of hand-carved happy sailing boats along the windowsill.
5. Coastal kitchen: Unleash your inner coastal style domestic goddess by bringing a splash of coastal style to the kitchen. Serve your fabulous fish dishes in fun fish dishes.

florestine is a boutique specialising in gifts and home accessories inspired by the sea. We operate through our online store (http://www.florestine.com) and will shortly launch a beautiful boutique in Brighton.
florestine sources the best coastal style treasures from the UK and abroad and spans the spectrum of coastal styles from shabby chic nostalgic to funky British, chic Mediterranean, exotic desert island and cool Scandinavian.
florestine scours the seas for artisans and craftspeople to create lovingly handmade and original items and shuns the mass-produced and the plastic.
florestine was founded in summer 2009 by lifelong coast obsessive and ex City headhunter Susannah Pringle who now searches for the ultimate coastal style home accessories rather than chief executives!
