Get the Coastal Look with Whitby

Whatever the weather, evoke memories of childhood with this season's hottest coastal look.


This season is all about coastal themes and nautical influences in your home and the kitchen is no different. Let the British seaside be your muse when it comes to thinking about your next kitchen.


The British weather has never been famed for heat, but when you think of British summer, you think of ice creams, beaches, picnics and the seaside. Whether it’s wild and windy out or we’re experiencing blue skies and sunshine; the seaside, with its sandy beaches and gentle waves is a beautiful source of inspiration for your kitchen.


The Whitby kitchen from the Laura Ashley Kitchen Collection can introduce a nautical theme into your home, by fusing simple style and fresh colours.


Whitby, a simple shaker design is inspired the shaker design movement, which believed that every object in a house had a function and that elaborate decoration was unnecessary and this idea can be seen in the design today, with it’s simple clean lines and uncluttered painted finish.


Create your own coastal themed kitchen by focusing on simple shapes and fresh colours; choose Cooks Blue or French Grey and mix with Chalk White. Timber worktops and oak knob handles will give your kitchen a bit of retro styling too.
