The Coastal style is light and breezy, with a palette drawn from the sand shells, sea and sky, it whispers “summer” all year round. Coastal style doesn’t have to be about featuring oars, fish or flags, as its best the Coastal Style sets a easy, carefree mood.
As far as colour goes, white is the hero in a coastal interior, reflecting sea foam and the bleached Australian sand. Incorporate blues, greys and aquas to create that ‘weekend at the beach’ feeling.
To bring comfort and warmth to the cooler colours associated with a coastal home, use plenty of soft furnishings, including throws, cushions, rugs and wall hangings.
