From the stunning polished concrete floors to the beautiful blue, white and wooden accents, it’s the perfect beach home that is truly reminiscent of the sea.
Starting in the kitchen, the beautiful lightwood benchtop teamed with white cabinetry instantly promotes an airiness, while still retaining a cosy charm. With plenty of bench space and a walk-in-pantry, the kitchen would be a hit for any budding master chef.
The living space incorporates the wooden look loved by all beach homes on another level. The stunning coffee table acts as a centrepiece, and the patterned armchairs add layer and depth to the space. Topped off with some greenery and ocean-inspired artwork, you’ll feel like you are right on the shoreline of the beach!
Nothing screams coastal more than light blue tiles! Following the style of the kitchen, the ensuite utilises more white and wooden textures. The stand-out feature is the double waterfall shower for a touch of luxury!
To do a coastal home right, you need to include an incredible alfresco to complete the indoor/outdoor experience. With large stacker doors, you’ll feel as though you are inside and outside simultaneously. Nautical stripes and a plunge pool complete the feel.
We couldn’t choose a favourite bedroom, so we included them all! Each one encapsulates the beachy-style we love, and utilises the best colours and styles for the look. The master bedroom opens directly to the backyard, another example of a beautiful combination of indoor and outdoor living.

THE BEACH LOOK: For a coastal feel, try light, bright colours like white, grey and teal. Finish it off with a beautiful rug and you will have the perfect space to sit and enjoy the views!
THE DARING STYLE: Be daring and stand out from the crowd with a bold colour like this yellow. Next to the dark blue of the couch, yellow really pops and creates a fun living space. Be careful not to go overboard though, it can become overbearing if not handled correctly.

A CLASSY TOUCH: For elegant appeal, try pastel colours on a neutral background. The chandelier and curtains add a touch of class, as does the abundance of cushions on the couches.
BEAUTIFULLY CONTEMPORARY: This living room offers modern appeal. The careful white borders of the photos, window and skirting all stand out against the feature wall, creating clean, neat lines. The lowset couch and matching cushions finish off the look.
THE UNDECIDED: A completely neutral pallet works well for the undecided. The white couch is a stunning addition that helps brighten the room, and the coffee table complements the kitchen island bench, tying the whole area together.
THE WILD APPEAL: Go bold with a distinctive pattern that continues through the living room. The lamp shade, cushions and light shade are enough to give this living room a great feel, without the pattern becoming overpowering.
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.
