STYLING TIP #1 Keep It Light and Bright

Nothing says ‘coastal’ like a light, bright interior. White or light floors and walls create a relaxing and welcoming environment. Draw inspiration from natural elements like as pebbles, sand and driftwood to create your own oasis.

STYLING TIP #2 Woven Neutrals

Natural and White coloured Rattan and Wicker is all the rage this summer. Try introducing this trend into your space through occasional chairs or light fittings. These inexpensive updates can really transform a space and are temporary enough that they can be changed out when desired.

STYLING TIP #3 Add Texture

While winter is all about layering up and keeping cosy, summer is all about flowing fabrics that emulate a calming sea breeze. Think soft sheers or white and neutral linens. Organic, textured fabrics will also provide a relaxed ambiance, perfect for those long summer days.

STYLING TIP #4 It’s All About Colour


Now that you have your base palette in place why not try introducing some colour? Try adding a burst of blue/greens to add fun and freshness or soft pastels to enhance tranquillity. Look for scatter cushions that incorporate pattern to uplift the space. Embellishments through tassels or wooden beads can add a fun and uplifting vibe to a space too. It’s all in the details!
