A Coastal style interior should bring to mind a carefree day at the beach. The use of our quintessentially Australian connection with the beach allows us to create a chic, relaxed interior design style.
Coastal interiors are not to be confused with Nautical or Hamptons style homes which are often stronger, bolder designs using navy & blues.
Coastal suggests a more casual vibe but done without losing any of the elegance of a Hamptons style home.
This interior design style is a relaxed feeling with the main focus before wallpaper being light. The space must be bright and airy.
From there wallpaper should add that extra textural layer. Think of using organic materials such as a grasscloth or jute wallpaper in a neutral shade for a textured element.
Painted timber, especially whitewashed, are coastal classics as well so the use of digitally printed wallpaper that looks like painted planks would sit perfectly in this design.
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 help envelope this breezy beachy style.
