Achieve the classic Cream Cornwall look in your home.
What is the classic Cream Cornwall coastal style, I hear you ask. Well, the look is sophisticated – marrying crisp linens, perfectly painted tongue and groove, bold stripes and a distinct palette of whites, neutrals, blues, charcoal and black. Utilising beautiful accessories such as specimen shells, coral, maritime instruments and coastal art with the aim of creating a clean, elegant feel.

You don’t have to live by the sea to achieve a coastal feel for your home. Just by putting a few tips into practice you’ll feel like you’ve got the ocean at your doorstep.
When it comes to choosing paints, don’t be afraid of using dark blue; the signature Cream Cornwall blue, Star Gazey, works perfectly in a small space as long as you keep the ceiling and woodwork white. Be brave, it will look fantastic! There are loads of options for different types of furniture to tie together your interior design and one that owner Rebecca Heane suggests is to make the most of an ottoman, providing a useful piece of extra seating for visitors and also working as a base for a lovely display of shells and coral.
When it comes to style, often the finer details can make all the difference. Cream Cornwall has a great selection of exclusive lampshades, which are perfect for the coastal look and create a real focal point for any room. Mix these with tailored stripes and washed linens for a classic feel.
Whether you prefer Roman blinds or curtains, your windows are sure to look smart with a mitred border to add definition. Choose a contrast colour for the borders to add extra design interest. When deciding on what to put on your walls, make sure to check out Cream Cornwall’s extensive range of beautiful mirrors including the unique shell mirrors, or for something a little different why not hang blue and white bone china plates as statement pieces?
