The beach comes to the bedroom via delicate seaweed-patterned linen fabric from Oxford-based design studio Natural History. Inspired by the antique collection and classification of exotic specimens from around the world, Natural History has just launched its new textiles label, Tradescant & Son, and we are captivated by the Ceramium Collection.
