A popular interior design style in Australia, Coastal Homes remind us of the beautiful coastline with sandy beaches, blue skies and idyllic waves.
To decorate your Coastal Home, begin with a colour palette of blues, whites, soft greys and natural tones that reflect the beach and ocean.
Clear open windows with sheer curtains or light fabrics allow natural sunlight into your Coastal home.
Whitewashed or wooden furniture, soft comfy light coloured sofas, driftwood, coral and sea glass vases all add to the beachy Coastal Vibes in your home.
Coastal interiors are clutter free and open with a less is more concept.
