Stripping off and baring all isn’t simply being confined to the beach this summer – the most fashionable homes are celebrating an unadorned back-to-nature style.

Think rooms in a neutral palette where the focus is on wood, either bleached or showing the beauty of its grain, together with stone, complemented by pure cotton and linen fabrics, and wool throws or carpets.

Colour tones are subtle, interest is provided in the varying textures and it’s a serene, uncluttered ‘less is more’ approach.
