You don’t have to live by the sea to enjoy the calming qualities of a coastal living rooms. It is a good place to start by playing with the colours of the sky, sea and sand to form a dreamy theme. Coastal Living has been increasingly gaining its popularity for its breezy and light and refreshing feel.
One of the first few things that will come to your mind when it comes to Coastal Living is the colours of white, blue and turquoise and beige, oh the colour of the soft sandy beach.
When I think about these, I immediately envision myself lounging by the beach, feet buried in the warm sand, sipping a refreshingly cold mango blended juice. The colour's soothing nature reminds me of the cool sea breeze that would so often embrace me whenever I am at the beach.
Like most of us dreamers who can't afford a luxury villa by the beach yet, why not create a living room that transports us to that atmosphere once you set your foot into your nest? This gave birth to my humble version of Poseidon's realm with a feminine touch. An accurate depiction of the sea can only be done with the shades of the colour cyan, a greenish blue, a mixture of the sky's reflection and the sea algae.
Amongst the shades of cyan, my favourite was turquoise as it is an eye-catching exquisite colour with a complex character, though soothingly simple when used interior designing. The centrepiece would be a white couch with its matching pillows where I can imagine myself to be laying on the sandy beach
when I plop myself on it after a hard day at work.
My feet would brush across the smooth, furry aero blue carpet as I reached for my juice on a shiny marble white diamond-like coffee table. My gaze would then lay upon a beautiful seashell underwater 100% handmade oil painting that complements the interior of a coral-shaped blue-green single-seater, an oblong-shape, antique-looking cabinet of the same colour and ornamental pieces such as seashells, golden, imperfect pots, golden leave and an exotic table lamp, all of which looks like the treasure of the sea after an adventurous voyage.
Turquoise is an easy shade to work indoor. Adding this vibrant hue will instantly make any interior space pop and feels airy and refreshing. Nothing beats the calming, yet unpredictable foamy white waves that seems to be playing peek-a- boo amid the sparkling blue sea which changes shades, reflecting the sky.
From coastal turquoise to bright tropical palettes, there are many different shades of colour that can help bring your favourite hues to your home.
Despite the carefree feel, it still portrays elegance and hints at the understated affluence of the homeowner, making it a sought after and much talked about interior design style. And, when done right, it can work just as well in any home rural estate, inner-city apartment or suburban dwelling as effectively as it works in a beachside home.
Create an understated, contemporary coastal look by layering key design features. Nothing says coastal quite like while-washed clapboard walls. Striped loose linen covered soft furnishings and coastal-inspired wooden furniture are a nod to coastal living. Seascape artwork and driftwood accessories help to stamp a further seaside vibe onto the decor without making it ‘too’ themed.
