For a relaxed ease and open feel, consider a coastal inspired beach home.

Soothing and natural, it offers a peaceful and tranquil environment to live in.

A practical coastal interior is all about using smaller, beach-related items, without going overboard. Exposed wood, warm white colours, light coloured wooden flooring and bright yellows and blues will all create a contemporary design that looks and feels as though you are living in the beauty and luxury of the sea. We have shared some of our favourite beach homes, to help show you how to create the perfect interior.


Invite the surf, summer and sunshine into your home with interior inspiration from the coast.  Utilising a mixture of light and bright fixtures, paint and furniture reminiscent of the beach you can bring a sense of warmth, light and relaxation to your home.

Take advantage of balmy night – create alfresco charm

The outside entertaining area of the family home should also be decorated with a relaxed style.  If you are located near the beach, or simply want to create that coastal feel, you can achieve the best of both worlds.  Mix function, comfort and an element of chic with an undercover space for all weather conditions, or add a pizza oven for fun summer nights with friends and family.


Carrying on the light, breezy feel through to the alfresco area ties in the coastal theme.

Let there be light!  Invest in windows!

Large windows are a necessary addition to any beach-style home.  Large windows allow for sunlight to flood the home.  This is not only good to enhance its overall comfort and energy efficiency, but to ensure you can bring the outside in.  Read: What is a smart home.
