Tint’s Colour Specialists and Brosa’s Interior Stylists are joining forces to help you navigate the world of colour and interior pairings. Get the lowdown on the right white for the best base, which colour scheme suits a Scandi room, go-to shades for mid-century styling and so much more.
To kickstart this style series, we’re digging into modern coastal interiors and the key fibres and shades to look out for if you’re trying to bring this to life.
Modern Coastal Style
Paint & Interior Pairing
It’s only natural to see the beauty of the seaside as a source of inspiration when creating a coastal look. But, with so many beautiful colours to choose from, the question of where to start arises and can feel really overwhelming. Start with five colours as a way to anchor (pun intended) your coastal look – a white, a dark navy or black, two neutrals and one soft colour. You can mix and match these throughout your home or room, using them in complementary ways as necessary.
A great starting point is a neutral white like So Fresh and So Clean, which is a clear, bright white without any yellow, blue or pink undertones. To tie the white in with your walls, add soft white interiors, whether that’s sheets on the bed or cushions on the couch. Natural fibres like linen and cotton are best here, and really reinforce that beachy feel.
Speaking of natural fibres, add depth and texture with jute, rattan and seagrass. Rustic or used timber also goes really well with coastal themes — think driftwood accessories, whitewashed floors and light oak furnishings.
Bring in some colour by layering blue and green tones throughout your house. Try a feature wall in Puddle or Inner Self for a pop of cool colour that gives off coastal resort vibes. A feature wall is perfectly suited to the space behind your bedhead, TV unit or dining table, creating a frame within the room. Complement the feature wall with lighter blues in your soft furnishings, such as your bedding, throws, rugs and cushions.
Finally, add some touches of black or navy with painted photo frames. Do Not Disturb or Doom are our must-have darker tones in a coastal room, and will look fantastic used this way. If you want to introduce some cooler shades into the room, a grey bedhead like the Arch Bed Head in Stone Grey will ground the room but still complement your existing colour scheme.
The most important thing about the coastal look is creating a relaxed environment, so treat it like a day at the beach, minus the sandy feet! If the colours and interiors around you make you feel chill and like you could be sitting on a sunny balcony somewhere, then you know you’ve achieved your goal and created the perfect coastal haven.
