Interior trends this season are influenced by the American East Coast: that classic, timeless style with the sort of effortless elegance Jackie Kennedy perfected at Hyannis Port. We might not have their guaranteed sun (or spacious mansions!) but we can still import a little of that pared-back New England style with these key features.
John Rocha Nora Bedding Set
Legendary Irish-based designer John Rocha has long been known for clean, crisp lines and simple designs. This coastal-themed bedding set is no different, and, handily, has just gone on sale.
From €39, Debenhams, Limerick City (see image above).
Neptune Belgravia Pendant Light
Channel a little fisherman style with Neptune’s Belgravia nickel pendant light – industrial and elegant at the same time, they’re perfect for suspending over a rustic wooden trestle table, either in pairs or in a line of three.
From €395, Browser’s Interiors, Limerick.
Wrap up against the cool sea breeze in a soft cashmere and wool throw, woven in Ireland. This version employs exactly the sort of the coastal colours that work beautifully against natural textures such as wood or seagrass.
From €129, Meadows and Byrne, Castletroy, Limerick and Bunratty, Co. Clare.
Bring a little of the beach home with this unusual mirror, crafted from individually-sourced driftwood (which means every piece is different).
From €129, Casey’s Furniture, Limerick.
Riedel Wine Tumblers
Dispense with fussy patterns and fancy stems and enjoy the simplicity of beautifully-made glass, perfect for serving both indoors and outdoors. Ideal for a glass of cooling Sauvignon Blanc or lively Chardonnay in the late summer evenings.
From €30, Brown Thomas, Limerick.
Helen James Considered Tribeca Chair
Gorgeously pared-back and simple, this solid oak chair is perfect for the coastal, rustic style you’re aiming for. And it’s Irish-designed too, from the studio of Helen James.
From €195, Dunnes Stores, nationwide
