Oh I do Like to be Beside the Seaside…

17/06/2013

Now, not that we want to jinx it but Summer may actually be upon us (fingers crossed) and as the sun begins to peak out from behind the clouds and we ditch our winter warmers for lighter cottons and flip flops, thoughts turn to holidays beside the sea and the craving for the feel of sand between our toes…bliss.

But here at Juniper-ash Decorating we’ve also entered the season to begin our client’s lovely outdoor projects – summer house renovation, conservatories in need of some T.L.C and scaling the dizzying heights of scaffolds (not that our ladies blink in the face of heights – we’re professionals after all) to give the outside walls the Juniper-ash touch.

With all these dates in our diary our holiday plans have to take a backseat for now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find creative ways to bring the holidays to us – just take a look at our fabulous findings from Wallpaper Direct on creating the perfect summer holiday in the comfort of your own home.

Sail away with me…

Sail away sailboat wallpaper

Sail Away Available from Wallpaper Direct - £30per roll

There’s not much more relaxing in life than sitting by the sea front, watching the world go by with a fish & chip dinner and seeing sail boats come into the harbour – a classily British holiday and utterly enjoyable.
With the sail away wallpaper from Harlequin you can allow yourself to be simply swept away with the whimsical sail-boat print and pastel shades – adorably classic.

From Beach to Chic

Wood Pannel effect wallapaper by Albany

Wood Pannelling paper available from Wallpaper Direct - £15.99 per roll

Think play-suits, sandcastle-buckets and ice lollies… and then think again.
This eye-catching, delightfully detailed Scandinavian wood-print paper from Albany brings the charm of those sweet little vintage beach huts into your home with a modern twist – team with sunglasses, good friends and cocktails for the holiday evening of a lifetime.

Ahoy Sailor!

Fregate wallpaper by Casadeco

Fregate available from Wallpaper Direct - £35.35 per roll

Chart a journey into the unexplored with this fun nautical print from Casadeco, with its handy compasses for bearings and scenic coastlines you can quite happily be transported anywhere that takes your fancy without ever having to leave the sofa.
Why not claim the islands like Christopher Columbus and sail away into the unknown, or relive a favourite holiday with your photo albums – we’re getting wistful just looking at it.

Under The Sea…

Samaki wallpaper by Scion

Samaki wallpaper available from Wallapaper Direct - £32 per roll

With this stunning print from Scion you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a beautiful ocean lagoon with clear blue waters and tropical fish happily swimming about, simply idyllic.
To complete the transformation from British garden to tropical paradise simple fish out a paddling pool, deck chairs and relax. Well, you need something to dip your toes in after all!

With all this seaside inspiration around our craving for sandy toes and sea breeze is satisfied, for now at least.

If you’re looking to bring the summer to you this year then why not get the Juniper-ash team involved? We carry paint charts as standard for Farrow & Ball, the Little Greene Pain Company, Dulux and loads more besides, so if you’ve found your perfect summer paper but don’t know what colour would bring out the best in it – we’re here to help with years of colour matching experience under our belts.

As ever we at Juniper-ash cannot stress enough the importance of professional help when it comes to quality papers, no two wallpapers are ever quite the same and it would be such a shame to turn your summer retreat into the holiday from hell so why not let Juniper-ash Decorating be your travel guide for a 5 star experience.
