My Bookish Weekly Wrap Up – 1st August 2020

Happy August to you all!  In normal circumstances I think we’d all be looking forward to this month of sunshine and relaxing – now we’re just playing second guesses as to what we’re going to face next in this crazy world!  Maybe there’ll be good news this month……

On to the books! Always our happy places!! And a very quiet one for me this week with just 2 books finished, no visits to Netgalley and just one newbie book arriving that I won in a competition!!  

Here’s my look back…

COASTAL BLUES by SALLY HAYDEN

Coastal Blues is a magnificent celebration of shoreside homes around the globe, offering decorative inspiration for all of us who love the ocean or dream of living by the sea.

Covering homes from as far apart as the Bahamas and Denmark, authors Sally Hayden and Alice Whately begin by looking at the essential components of the coastal look—color and texture, materials, furniture, fabrics, accessories, and display. The second part of the book, The Spaces, takes a tour through the home room by room, from Living Spaces, Cooking and Eating Spaces to Bedrooms, Bathrooms, and Outdoor Spaces, capturing the informal, easy-going interior style associated with living at the water’s edge. But Coastal Blues is not only for those who live by the ocean. Whatever and wherever your home, from a high-rise apartment to a newly built home, you can create a simple, informal beachy feel. From tranquil living areas to balmy bedrooms and shipshape kitchens, Coastal Blues covers all the aspects of decorative seaside style.
