11 April 2024

Are you dreaming of escaping to a tranquil beach paradise, listening to the serene sound of the waves and sipping on a refreshingly tasty drink? With B&M’s Coastal Life trend – dream no further!

From nautical themed accents to soothing blue hues, we'll show you how to bring the relaxing waves of the ocean right to your door and create a garden that transports you to a place of relaxation and bliss.

Light Up Your Outdoors with Coastal Life Candles

Create a welcoming and warming space in your garden with some outdoor candles to see you through on those long summer evenings spent outside. B&M’s Coastal Life collection offers an array of scented and unscented candles inspired by the natural beauty of the ocean.

The Coastal Life Ceramic Lantern captures the essence of an evening down at the harbour with its ship grey colour and woven rope detail. The perfect decorative detail to your garden, lighting the way to your coastal al fresco dining space.

To illuminate your delicious outdoor food spread, the XL Glass Citronella Candle would make an elegant and eye-catching decorative feature for the table. With its woven rope handle and natural colours, this candle serves seaside splendour and waterside wonder.

For maximum style and illumination, find a space to feature this large Coastal Life 2 Tone Ceramic Citronella Candle. With its 2-tone natural sand colour, calming scent and warming glow, easily create an outdoor oasis filled with coastal charm that invites you into your outdoor space.

B&M's Top Tip: Solar lanterns are a great alternative for outdoor lighting. The Coastal Life Solar Powered Glass Lantern and the Large Solar Grey Rattan Weave Lantern are perfect solar light choices for capturing the Coastal Life trend.

Coastal Life Tableware for Luxury Outdoor Eating

The Coastal Life trend is all about bringing the calming and tranquil atmosphere of the ocean to your outdoor space. And what better way to do so than by incorporating stylish and elegant tableware into your luxury outdoor eating experience? Our Coastal Life Tableware collection will add seaside sophistication to any dining setting, with decorative and functional pieces.

For starters, serve your sea-style sides with the Shell 3-Section Serving Platter and our Coastal Retreat Wooden Bowl, filling with nautical nibbles, crustacean crisps and mermaid mini bites. Accompany with the Coastal Life Wooden Chip & Dip Board so your snacks can dive into some delicious dips.

Don’t forget to stay refreshed in the spring and summer sun with the Crackle Tumbler and Crackle Wine Glass. Whip up some refreshing beverages to serve or open your favourite bottle.

B&M's Top Tip: Having a party or gathering? Serve up your best cocktail or refresher in the Ribbed Drink Dispenser to keep your guests happy and hydrated.

Hanging Garden Decorations for Coastal Life Vibes

Add outdoor ornaments to your garden to enhance your Coastal Life aesthetic. Hanging decorations can add height, contrast and dimension to your garden while adding decoration to an otherwise plain space. B&M’s Coastal Life range provides a subtle style and visual interest that invites you into a stylish and serene space.

First, expand your garden with a mirror to open the space and reflect more of the beauty you have cultivated. Our Coastal Life Round Mirror with Rope is a top choice for offsetting any blocky, plain and oppressive walls or fences, while adding that coastal charm with its white colour and natural rope detail.

Next, illuminate your space with a stylish and warming set of Coastal Life Solar String Lights to add colour and light to your fencing, walls or decking area. With coastal colours and a warm white glow, capture evenings on the shore with these gorgeous and decorative string lights.

For simple decoration, or for those summer Coastal Life gatherings outside, hang some Coastal Life 12 Flag Garden Bunting to really frame your outdoor space for those seaside themed celebrations.

Garden Planters for Your Coastal Life Haven

It’s not a garden without foliage and flowers, so why not display your greenery in stylish Coastal Life planters to really capture the trend? Incorporate a mix of shell white, muted blues and natural woven planters for that tranquil coastal feel.

Accent your favourite plant with our Taupe Plant Pot on Tripod Stand which brings the sand into your coastal garden with its grainy shell-like look.

Pair up with the gorgeous Coastal Life Planters, a set of 3 muted blue plant pots that emulate the soft sway of waves on a sandy shoreline.

For a natural woven wood look that will remind you of walks along the harbour, our Coastal Life Natural Basket Planter with Handles will finish off the trend nicely and pair well with other Coastal Life Planters.

B&M's Top Tip: Browse more Planters to find the perfect set that will compliment your outdoor space and capture the Coastal Life trend.

Bring the Beach to You with Coastal Life Outdoor Seating

To complete your Coastal Life garden oasis, create a comfy, cosy and seaside setting with some stylish seating options that will transport you to that dreamy shoreline paradise. This will provide an inviting place to relax, entertain and soak in the beauty of your garden or outdoor space.

For comfort, meditation and patio picnics, add some decorative charm with this Coastal Life Extra Large Round Cushion, a feature that provides a coastal bohemian touch. Think yoga on the beach!

Sit down on the Printed Foldaway Picnic Blanket as you bask in the cool shade underneath the Coastal Retreat Printed Parasol, protecting yourself from the harsh rays of the sun while you picnic out in the garden.
