One of the big trends for this year is coastal; a relaxed look incorporating gorgeous blues, soft greys, soothing whites and nautical-inspired accessories. Get creative with your styling and look beyond the traditional anchors and boats for this look – think cool stripes, rustic wooden furniture and touches of rattan (which is also going to be big this year). Simple add a warm throw and extra cushions to keep it cosy during the cold months. We've picked out a few pieces that we have been loving so far...
