Why we chose this project

coastal decor

Coastal decor has this incredible ability to turn any house into a sanctuary, reminiscent of a relaxing beach vacation. With its minimalism and neutral palettes, coastal design easily adapts to trends and blends seamlessly with other styles, such as the ever-popular Boho.

Design Style

Our featured project is a stunning representation of coastal design, where nature takes center stage, encouraging ultimate relaxation. Coastal interiors draw inspiration from scenic beaches, incorporating natural elements like wood, jute, rattan and linen fabrics.

The color palette mirrors the ocean's calming hues, with shades of blue and white dominating the scene. What sets this project apart is the infusion of Boho elements, achieved through the clever layering of patterns. Mixing and matching textiles, like rugs, cushions, and throws, adds a playful yet sophisticated Boho touch.

Key features

This coastal project masterfully incorporates natural elements inspired by beachscapes, including natural materials. The light and airy atmosphere, the natural fibers, and the calming color palette all combine to create an environment that feels like a beachside resort.

sea views and natural light

1. Designing around sea views

One of the hallmarks of coastal interior design is optimizing sea views. In this project, furniture is strategically arranged to make the most of the breathtaking ocean scenery, ensuring that everyone can savor the stunning real estate.

2. Natural light

Natural light is a star player in this project. The use of light and airy color palettes maximizes the reflection of light, allowing the coastal views to shine. You won't find bulky furniture obstructing the beautiful windows. Instead, the design encourages sunlight to flood the house.
