What is a Coastal style?

A Coastal style interior should bring to mind a carefree day at the beach.  Make everyday a holiday at home. The use of our quintessentially Australian connection with the beach allows us to create this chic, relaxed interior design style in just the right setting.

Coastal interior design is similar but not to be confused with Nautical or Hamptons style homes. These are often stronger, bolder designs typically using navy & blues. A coastal style suggests a more casual vibe than a Hamptons style home. But without losing any of the elegance.

This interior design style is a relaxed feeling with the main focus before wallpaper being light. The space must be bright and airy.

But to stop the space from feeling blank and white think about layering texture on texture.  Wallpaper is the perfect medium to add that extra textural layer.  Think of using organic materials such as a grasscloth or jute wallpaper in a neutral shade for that luxe element.

Use Faux effects

The use of faux effect wallpaper works particularly well. Think of a wallpaper design that looks like whitewashed bricks. White painted timber is a coastal classics as well. So the use of digitally printed wallpaper that looks like wooden planks would sit perfectly in this design.

Colour palette for coastal style

With its down to earth appeal, Coastal style interiors will work perfectly with soothing tones of colour and an appreciation of all things sun, sea and sand.

A colour palette of neutrals, sandy yellow, bright white, pale green, khaki and muted blue are all colours that match the Australian coastal landscape. For a modern aesthetic you can’t go wrong with a soft grey also.

Anything that mimics the natural elements bringing the outside in will encapsulate this breezy, beachy style.
