Sally Hayden, best-selling author of Coastal Style, visits 12 beautiful homes across the globe that celebrate the timeless allure of living by the water.

There is something special about being close to wide expanses of sea and sky, living with open doors, broad horizons and soft colours - all these things instantly bring a sense of calm. This book is packed with evocative images of beautiful places and spaces that will inspire you to leave real life behind and enjoy rest and relaxation close to nature. The first section, Inspiration, focuses on the key elements of easy waterside style, including colour palettes, fabrics, furniture, accessories and display. In the second section, Homes, Sally explores stunning real-life coastal homes that capture the spirit of living by the water.

They include an airy summer retreat in Denmark, a shingled beach house in Nantucket and even a lighthouse. Living by the Water is not only a glorious treat for the eyes - it will also inspire you to emulate the laid-back, barefoot chic of summery, waterside style all year round, wherever you live.
