The sea has always fascinated us and has proved a particular source of beautiful inspiration with its range of plant and animal life in varying shapes, sizes and colours. This highly original book captures the essence of the seashore. Following a series of evocative photographs, you are introduced to a spectacular variety of motifs and materials of the seashore - all combining to create a hauntingly magical atmosphere. In the main section you are shown how to create your own superb seashore effects throughout the home, including fabrics, furniture and domestic surfaces. Alongside the many inspiring ideas are 35 practical projects, each presented with easy-to-follow, step-by-step photography to show you what to do at every stage. Whether you wish to make a string-and-driftwood chair, distressed painted louvred doors or a shell-encrusted mirror, everything you need to know is carefully explained and demonstrated, giving you the confidence to try out your own designs. Andrea Spencer is a very talented stylist who began her career as Home Editor on a number of leading magazines and then became an art director for interior and home style publications including Period Living, Homes & Gardens and Ideal Home.
