Room re­veal

Cap­ture a coastal vibe

Warm, balmy days will soon be with us, which means we can start look­ing for­ward to coastal get­aways – or at least some lazy hours in a re­laxed, beach-style liv­ing room.

In­spired by my beloved fam­ily beach house, this room brings the out­doors in with the sandy hues of Du­lux ‘Molesworth’ and the ground­ing nat­u­ral tex­tures of rat­tan, tim­ber, feath­ery toe­toe and fluffy cot­ton stems.

The heart of this set-up is the amaz­ing, low-ly­ing Fred­er­ick sofa with its min­i­mal, mod­u­lar form pro­vid­ing the per­fect spot for putting your feet up af­ter a swim. Just add a gen­er­ous cof­fee ta­ble for chilled lemon­ade and a pile of good reads.

Hav­ing ves­sels of var­i­ous shapes and sizes on hand makes it easy to play with ac­ces­sories. From this hold-all wo­ven ta­ble tray that keeps sun­glasses and other essen­tials close by, to the large green glass vases for dis­play­ing your daily beach and bush finds, clut­ter is kept to a min­i­mum but chance dis­cov­er­ies have a spe­cial place to be ad­mired and en­joyed.

So kick off your slides, take a seat and en­joy some laid­back style this sum­mer!
