Four ways to make the modern coastal vibe work for you
Add warm TONES
Create a cosy feel with furniture and accessories in warm tones. Teal and yellow are uplifting choices; carry them through to larger items such as a rug or sofa.
USE TRICKY SPACES
don’t dismiss awkward alcoves. make a feature of tall nooks by papering
with a co-ordinating wallpaper. not sure how to make the most of a bay window? Try creating a window seat piled with blankets and cushions.
display beachcomber treasures, such as driftwood, shells and sea glass, to complement a coastal theme. Live in an
urban area? Incorporate industrial accessories made from iron, concrete or reclaimed wood.
A mix of furniture will work as it adds interest and looks more natural. Sit mid-century and Scandi shapes alongside trad cabinets; just match the tones of the wood.
