How to style coastal in 3 ways
Having a coastal style doesn’t have to mean sand and seashells everywhere, unless you want it to! Try playing with different colours, patterns and textures to change up your space to create varying coastal looks. Lighter colours, tones and hues such as whites, light blues, greys and beige can help create a calm atmosphere. Natural fibres such as jute, hemp, wool, linen, cotton and timber soften a space and transform it into a relaxing coastal oasis.
Our stylist Linda has created 3 different mood boards to inspire you with various coastal styles to explore in your home. From Australian to Hamptons or Tribal, coastal never goes out of style. Discover the best coastal vibe for your space.
Australians are known for their laidback, chilled lifestyle. Drawing influence from some of the whitest beaches in the world, we tend to go for white linens and light natural fibres to create an effortless, minimalist look. Inject a pop of greenery or the hint of a feathered friend for a finishing touch.
Coastal doesn’t always mean by the beach. You have the freedom to play around with darker tones and patterns to create a more tribal inspired look. The looser fabrics and soft textures soften the style, allowing for a relaxed atmosphere and flow - which is what coastal is all about.
The Hamptons style is more of a classic and sophisticated look, using more structured and traditional furniture in crisp whites, blues and greys. Introducing different textures, such as natural, rustic elements can soften the space and create depth. Introducing pops of brass to this coastal style can amp up the luxe factor.
