Design Elements | Watergate Bay Hotel

When I think of a Coastal Summer or Beach Chic, I don’t ever think of the UK. Never, right? Well, at least for me; I haven’t traveled in that country much; so visions of union jacks, pubs and well, the pregnant princess of course is what comes to mind. Well, well, come to find out, the beach life is alive and well in Cornwall in the United Kingdom; it’s in the westernmost part of the south-west peninsula and bordered in the East and West by the Celtic sea. I fell in love with the Watergate Bay Hotel in this town & the laid back design elements that perfectly evokes the relaxed, beach life of course!

To get the look and feel of this amazing place go for:

1. A cheery & bright palette of yellows, whites/creams and all shades of blues.

2. Natural textures, wovens and bleached woods should be the staple.

3. Do some striping! On walls, linens and window coverings.

Inspiration for designing your next space can truly come for everywhere. One of my all time favorite tip is to take a cue from a favorite destination whether you’ve been there or not! Travel nostalgia at it’s best.

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
