Soothing shades

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.

Natural attraction

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.

Let there be light

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.

Accommodate the clan

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.
