Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Scientists tell us that living by the ocean makes us happier and healthier: views of blue space have a calming effect and sea air improves our ability to absorb oxygen. Being by the water brings a sense of tranquillity and relaxation and a home by the sea has never been more desirable.

The first part of the book offers up Sally's take on coastal style, celebrating the colors and textures of the ocean. She also looks at lighting, furniture and coastal decorative accents such as maps, charts and nautical-themed accessories, shells, and driftwood. The second half of the book visits a selection of glorious coastal houses, cabins, cottages, and hideaways around the globe that are guaranteed to enchant and inspire. Wherever you live, Relaxed Coastal Style will inspire you to adopt the relaxed, informal simplicity of life by the sea.
