STYLE SE­CRETS

Four ways to make the mod­ern coastal vibe work for you

Style at Home (UK) - - Modern Coastal -

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.

Go out­doors

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.

Com­bine STYLES

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.
