Batten down the hatches this Autumn with some cosy new interior design ideas. The season is off to a gallop with a bumper crop of new collections. There’s a wealth of botanical motifs from the hedgerow and some inspiring earth tone and spicy winter hues. Whilst foraging for interesting design stories, the blog also unearthed an irresistible new paint and wallpaper collection from Stroud-based designer Josephine Munsey.
Coast-to-Country interior style ideas
I was taken with how naturally this concise set of paint colours seems to reflect the hues of the British coast and countryside. I also love the mood changes offered between the rich, darker colours with the sea tones and gentler blossomy pinks. ‘Alma’ is the sumptuous ochre backdrop you see here which not only works well with all the colours in Josephine’s palette but is one I think will prove to be exciting for all sorts of projects.
So, inspired by Josephine’s new collections and with further inspiration from talented artists, makers, antique dealers and designers from around the UK, here are a few more coast-to-country style ideas that caught my eye.

Thank you so much Erin, I love hearing from you all the way from Australia. I hope you are well? C x
What a sumptuous feast! I’ve loved exploring all the designers wall papers and fabrics. I will definitely need to be redecorating my little en suite, as I have thoroughly soaked (yet again from a previous accident) my beautiful Nina Campbell wallpaper, trying to bathe with a recalcitrant hand held shower and a broken ankle. It’s now so water stained 😩.
