Before, we've recognised the coastal trend because it has been more about accessorising with classic beachside motifs such as anchors, shells and deckchair stripes, but now it's taken on a fresh twist with more inspiration coming from the deep sea rather than the sandy beach.

 

There's still the same relaxing palette of shades of blue and crisp whites, however there's now a pop of orange coming through with designs featuring sea creatures such as lobster, crab and octopus. These will make a fun and colourful addition in your kitchen - think tea towels, oven gloves, coasters and pot holders. Take a look at nine of our favourite ideas to get you started…
