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.

However, with so many decor styles on offer, it can be confusing when it comes to choosing the colours and style for your home.
The most important thing to remember is to choose a style and theme that complements your personality. The interior design process starts at your colours and selections meeting, and will continue after handover as you move your furniture in.
Defined by open space and ‘sophisticated’ neutral colours like white, beige, taupe and black, contemporary décor is all about clean, neat lines. The furniture often has a clear, defined shape to provide a smooth profile, and not many accessories are required. If you want to add something a little extra, large pieces of art or a defined feature wall is the way to go.
French provincial is a warm and inviting style that emanates from the French countryside. Marble, stone and timber are all used in beautiful whites and creams, with curved legs and other decorative details the standout feature on the furniture. If it is elegance you are after, French provincial is the way to go.
Modern industrial décor combines simplicity and authenticity. Think heavy features with eclectic elements, large graphic patterns mixed with recycled wood and neutral finishes with splashes of bold colour. Modern industrial décor has character and charm to it. It also represents a modern take on old trends.
Whether you live by the beach or just dream about ocean breezes, coastal-themed interior décor should reflect the beauty and luxury of living by the sea. It should have a relaxed ease about it and feel open and airy. White finishes with touches of light coloured wood and sea-themed accents in lights blues are perfect for a coastal home.
White décor has been a popular trend for some time. It’s a harmonious and pleasant shade to use in the home because it represents luxury, yet also has a relaxed vibe about it. White décor provides a good base for the home to then implement splashes of colour through cushions and wall hangings.
