Lighting in coastal, seaside or nautical styles. Bring back memories of summer holidays on the beach at the seaside with some carefully selected marine or nautical themed light fittings from Lighting and Lights. This is a relaxed informal look that can be enhanced by clever use of lighting. Today's coastal décor is a little more sophisticated and the latest interior design trend if for pale, bleached and textured light fittings that create a calm cohesive look.
No longer are coastal lights restricted to the odd porthole style ceiling light for a bathroom - you can now find nautical style fisherman pendants and ceiling lights that are just perfect for lighting in kitchens and dining rooms. In fact you can turn almost any room into a seaside hideaway by whitewashing or painting walls in very pale colours and stripping back the floor boards or laying a pale wooden floor. Use sandy colours, aqua blue, white, cream and pale grey and then team with a few nautical themed accessories and lamps to complete the look. The coastal theme can be continued outdoors by having cosy seating areas and nautical style garden lighting that will allow you to sit and enjoy your outdoor spaces on long summer evenings.
