Coastal style has a timeless look that can be easily adapted to suit your own tastes. By using cool colours, well worn natural textures and seaside motifs you can create a fresh, relaxed look that will make every day feel like a summer holiday.
Start with the right backdrop be it stark, whiter-than-white, a cream-based shade or a grey-based stormy tone and build the look from there. Use plenty of other natural colours such as whites, greys, misty greens, sea blues, sand and driftwood browns.
Keep the look fresh yet laid-back with white-painted or weathered-wood furniture (the more beaten the better). Then fill the room with texture, panelling, baskets, woven rugs and knitted throws or cushions to help to soften the simple white or grey palette.
