Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!April 2016
The coast…the place every person would like to be. Whether it be a charming seaside cottage or modern holiday villa, in Cornwall or California, why not bring the coast to you?
The main elements for coastal inspired design is to keep it light, airy and relaxed!
This coastal interior design has everything you would associate with the oceanfront; sandy coloured flooring, natural materials, wicker coffee and side tables, crisp white cottons, woods, greenery and shells! The mixture of different woods make an interesting and raw feel.
Opting for soft greys and whites turn your bedroom into a contemporary beach-inspired design. Alongside white furniture, neutral hues and a lakeside picture, this bedroom gives you a fresh waterfront atmosphere while keeping a modern tone.
This colourful design combines white cotton bedding, wood block side tables, a large indoor plant and a jute rug to add texture. Using bright fabrics gives the room a burst of colour, creating a room with a holiday villa vibe that you will never want to leave!
Not every beach themed design need to have the colour blue. The use of soft green tones with chalky whites and textured fabrics create a tranquil vibe…and let’s not forget to mention the quirky seahorse side table to add a bit of fun!
Colours with a bit more depth are more than welcome in costal interior designs. This deep blue feature wall design is an array of corals, shells and sea plants. Cole & Son have created a fantastic wallpaper similar to this called Seafern from the collection Curio and have also designed one inspired by driftwood called Zebrawood . Perfect for marine inspired room designs!
So whether you live by the sea or not you can easily transform you home into a coastal vibe. By using the tones of blues and greens along with marine inspired artwork and accessories you can go from dull and dreary to bright and cheery! Check out our other blog posts…
