Tasked with renovating Tanya and Dave’s Bedford “monster” into a family-friendly, natural coastal haven, the House Rules teams impressed with their relaxed aesthetic, natural materials and playful colour palettes for the kids. Get the coastal look in your home by embracing these beachy-keen design elements.
Create a soothing ambience by layering up neutral shades of white and beige in various textures. Add muted pops of blue and green reminiscent of the seaside or a coastal motif like palm trees or waves.
Rustic and whitewashed timbers, crisp linens and seagrass work beautifully together to harness a natural, earthy ambience. Tie your spaces together with plenty of indoor plants to bring the outdoors in.
Amplify the light throughout your coastal-style home with sheer curtains, tall mirrors and plenty of assorted table lamps. Seashell and beaded chandeliers makes a glamorous statement.
Family-friendly design considers the practical aspect of raising kids, such as plenty of storage and bright, uplifting colours that can be easily updated as toddlers turn into teens.
