We take a look at some of the best coastal accessories, sofas & wardrobe ideas to get the coastal and nautical feel for your holiday property.

First of all, if you want that classic look look no further than a Breton Stripe. The Breton stripe originates from Brittany (or 'Bretagne' in French) on the North West coast of France. A decree on the 27th March 1858 introduced the striped shirt as the prescribed seaman's uniform. The stripes were white for 2cm and then blue for 1cm

The heart to any home or indeed holiday home is the sofa, its your own little world of relaxing after testing the local coastal food, ales and drinks and a early morning beach combing session. We found the nautical inspired bluebell three seat sofa on www.sofa.com

With some nautical & natural beach inspired accessories this could be your new favourite cosy spot at your holiday property. We found these beautiful textiles and cushions at www.lillypad.com , The Devon Beach Company and Houzz. John Lewis also have a great coastal range to boot too!

A coastal inspired holiday home would not be complete without a model sailing ship. Did you know early ship builders knew little about drafting or mathematics. Instead of drawing plans, shipwrights used models to show their prospective customers how the full-size ship would appear. Then the models became the shipwright's plans! So either build one yourself with the grandchildren or if that seems like too much hard work, buy one online or at your local coastal model shop.

We love a collection of plants and creating a botanical feel with plants and foliage. We found this metallic plant pot and plant at Audenza.
