The coastal style comes in many forms but always harbours a relaxed, fresh and energising feel. Lightness is key, a light to white platform as a base and subtle overtones layered. Extreme texture gives a sense of warmth and age. The décor is crafted from natural fibres like rattan, rustic bleached timbers, wicker and then blended with cottons, linens, canvas and pale leathers. Your sanctuary draws on inspiration from nature, the tones and finishes pulled from the trees, pebbles, sand, water and skylines. Memoirs and keepsakes sprinkle the surfaces…life’s treasures. You don’t need to live by the beach to bring a bit of it into your home.

Sandy feet playing on the deck and a summer breeze gusting through the home, spreading the smell of jasmine from the vines.  Fresh prawns, crusty local market bread, and a chilled wine spread across the table, to be enjoyed with your favourite subscription.
