There’s nothing like a holiday to lift your spirits and where better to draw inspiration to freshen up your interiors than from your favourite destination. No matter the type of holiday you enjoy, beach, countryside or city, we’ve put together a guide on how to make your home feel like you’re on a permanent staycation.
Nautical interiors are always in vogue. Relaxed and eclectic, seaside style can easily be updated each year with trinkets and accessories from your favourite holiday spot.
Double Stripe: Stripes are the ultimate in coastal chic so we’ve teamed a larger stripe design – our Kimbel Pacific curtains – with the smaller stripe of our Mathers Wedgewood fabric on a Roman blind. Keep the colours matching to tie the look together.
Ocean Colour Scene: Replicate the colours of the ocean and sandy shores with patterned scatter cushions in navy blue, tones of turquoise and contrasting accents of yellow and sand.
Natural Treasures: Reclaimed wood and natural objects such as shells and pebbles will bring a hint of beach life to your home. Weathered timber or driftwood that’s been washed ashore can look fabulous when repurposed into home accessories – on anything from mirrors to light fittings.
Or why not become a beachcomber and find your own treasures on the beach – create a bespoke arrangement of natural accessories that are guaranteed to remind you of your favourite beauty spot.
Britain has an abundance of quaint villages with rolling countryside and a choice of delightful chocolate box cottages to stay in. So it’s no wonder that more and more of us are choosing to escape to the country rather than heading abroad for the summer.
Rustic and cosy, with organic textures and exposed wood beams, the country style is both inviting and comforting.
Emulate this style in the home by choosing thick woven materials like wool, plaid and tartan. Style Studio’s Elgin and Nairn are tactile woollen-look fabrics that can be combined to create a traditional look.
Or for a fresh and summery take on country chic, this light and airy country kitchen with Style Studio’s nature-inspired vine and butterfly pleated blind fabric at the windows will bring the outdoors in and create a welcoming room in which to dine and relax.
Country furniture should be solid and robust with a rustic lived in feel – try upcycling or restoring furniture from charity shops or second hand shops for an authentic look.
Bring the iconic sights of your favourite big city to your windows with Style Studio’s gorgeous Skyline blinds. Two designs showcase landmarks from London and New York featuring the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and of course the instantly recognisable New York yellow cab.
