A practical coastal style is not about overloading your home with every little beach related motif that you can get your hands on. The inspirations and coastal themed ideas on display here showcase a beautiful balance between staying true to the style and still embracing sleek contemporary design.
This is a particularly apt look for the kids’ bedroom where you can recreate an African safari setting with colorful wallpaper and textiles with a wild print!
This is a look that demands balance an eye for interior design and the discipline to know when to stop adding more to the room.
Contemporary Coastal is a perennial favorite among designers and home owners. The relaxed and fresh style reminds us of those lazy summer days or that exotic holiday trip when sun sand and surf were just a stone’s throw away!
If you build new expose your beams use reclaimed wood or include a stone fireplace. The modern rustics never forget the fifth wall: the ceiling. A-frame homes with cathedral wood-covered ceilings are quite popular or big beams adorn the rustic space.
Dark brick walls in black will always attract attention while there are occasions when it is the décor around them that will make all the difference. Play with contrasting textures (such as delicate sheer curtains and rough exposed brick walls) or shades (whitewashed and red brick walls in the same room) to bring alive the inimitable living room that you always dreamed about!
