blue grey coastal home inspiration


It’s a not-so-secret secret that I long to live by the sea… perched high on a cliff top with views over an ever changing coastal landscape would be a pretty perfect place to spend my days! In the absence of a beach in my commuter suburb of London, I settled for my clapboard blue house and set about decorating it in calming shades of blue and grey… it hasn’t calmed by longing to be by the sea though.  So today I’m sharing my inspiration for the ultimate coastal home, a palette of soft blues, glass greens and stormy greys accompanied by white wooden floorboards, driftwood and coral.  Sigh.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
