Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Interior Styling -

When you think about beach-in­spired dec­o­rat­ing schemes, you pic­ture the sea, right? Well, rather than tak­ing your styling cues from the ocean’s greens and blues, re­di­rect your at­ten­tion to the sand dunes, rocky head­lands and na­ture’s earthy colour­ways. This look is all about a pared-back take on coastal cool.


• Bring di­men­sion to your liv­ing room lay­out by mix­ing the height of your home­maker ac­ces­sories. Say, what? Well, rather than opt­ing for a ta­ble lamp, for ex­am­ple, shop for a sculp­tural stan­dard lamp to sit be­side your sofa. It in­stantly raises the eye!

• Wel­come the sea­side vibe into your scheme with a fab­u­lous on-theme in­door plant that thrives in the avail­able light con­di­tions. Pick some­thing tall and strik­ing for added ef­fect.

• Never un­der­es­ti­mate the power of mix­ing up your fur­ni­ture styles. While a cane bench and rocker, a white sofa and tim­ber cof­fee ta­ble are strik­ingly dif­fer­ent, an even scat­ter­ing of colour-matched ac­ces­sories blur the lines.
