Inspired by the Sea: Coastal Interiors to Transform your Home

The Beach House Company - Contemporary Coastal Interiors - The Retreat

Transform your home with contemporary coastal details

A home by the sea can provide endless interior design ideas. You only need to take a look outside to feel inspired by the colours and textures of your seaside surroundings. From aquamarine armchairs to bespoke rattan furniture, there’s a myriad of creative ways to invite the outside in and transform your home into a contemporary coastal haven.

 

But you don’t have to live right by the beach to achieve an eye-catching and effective design. With a few clever tweaks, you can introduce subtle nautical touches to your home, no matter the setting. To kick-start your creativity, we’ve compiled a handy list of tips and tricks that are sure to add a fresh coastal vibe to your interiors.

 

1) Go for Contemporary Artwork

Add a splash of colour with tasteful coastal-inspired artwork. Avoid a cliché beach theme and choose a few pieces of statement art in tonal blues and greens – this is a stylish way to give a room a contemporary touch of the seaside.

 

2) Add Circular Mirrors

Circular mirrors make for a characterful porthole window effect, and instantly add personality to any bedroom. Investing in a few round mirrors and hanging them on a plain wall will not only reflect plenty of light, but will also prove an eye-catching design feature. Choose brass, rope or even driftwood edging for an extra injection of style.

 

3) Introduce Coastal Textures

Adding textures like rattan and rope can be a subtle way of evoking a quirky seaside feel without overwhelming the space. A simple side table and roped lantern make an empty corridor more inviting and add lovely detail to bare walls. Quilted headboards and cushions are another great way to create texture, and work especially well against a calming, neutral backdrop to mimic natural coastal elements.

 

 4) Play with Pattern

Whether you love statement décor or simplistic design, patterns have an immediately uplifting effect on interiors, and can reflect the beautiful natural forms found around the coastline. Introducing a few key pieces with wavy edges pays subtle homage to the sea and its lapping tides, while bold nautical stripes make for a striking impact in a bedroom or lounge. If it’s an understated look you’re going for, simple line designs on top of natural creams or greys create an authentic shell-like feel.

 

5) Choose Natural Tones

Introduce a subtle seaside-theme by opting for a natural colour palette. Light whites, corals and creams help create a calming space, and contrast with brighter blues and greens. Combine light oak wood finishes with subtle grey tones for a sleek and seamless open plan space. Natural tan or sandy shades can be used across floors, tables and light fixtures and mirror the softer elements of coastal environments.
