A favourite decorating style, you can embrace seaside living (even if you don’t live by the sea) with coastal interiors. You don’t need to overload on cliche shells, driftwood or nautical symbols to create this relaxed, fresh look. It’s all about a simple yet comfortable space that blurs the lines between the indoors and outdoors.

Although there are many styles of coastal interiors like Hamptons, tropical, shabby chic and nautical, they all have one thing in common, the colour palette. Coastal living interiors have a natural colour palette; white like the sand and blue for the sky and ocean to reflect seaside tones. Paired with plenty of natural light and the right finishing touches, you can bring the laid-back atmosphere into your home too.

Letting white be the calm backdrop allows you to introduce colour and texture in furniture and decor. Think timber for furniture or floors, fabrics in light neutrals for lounge chairs and soft window furnishings to let natural light in.
Aptly named Coast Living available for custom ordering
Over-sized plants, particularly ones that are glossy with large leaves create a tropical paradise feel while accessories and artwork add colour and a personal touch. Don’t forget about the rug to further soften the look!
Besides all shades of blue from the ocean, sand, taupe, cream and chalky whites all go perfectly with the coastal interior colour palette. Browse our rugs in neutral, beige and taupe tones.
Rugs made from natural fibres like our plaited jute Asha and round Montego range also add warmth and texture to beach house living. Go for stripes and patterns like the Santana Azure if you need something with more structure for a classic coastal look.
