Let the waves and hue of the ocean roll into your bedroom with a living room with a whitewashed colour scheme. Paint walls a fresh white and team with stone, or wood flooring. Add simple white blinds or voile curtains. Team this look with white linen furnishings and a rattan armchair. Team with blue accessories such as a coastal blue mohair throw and inky-blue wool cushions for added texture.
Add a pop of colour to a coastal colour scheme with a tropical print. Keep the walls a fresh white, or icy blue and team with bright orange, jade green and azure blue to echo the hues of a tropical seabed.
Rustic wood panelling adds a wonderful coastal feel to any room. Paint it a calming white and team with nautical blue and white striped bedlinen. Team with a sandy coloured carpet for a beach hut vibe.
Driftwood is a wonderful material to add a feeling of coastal colour schemes. Choose furniture crafted from natural driftwood or coastal-themed accessorise such as pebbles, starfish and shells positioned around the room. Position a pile of driftwood under a console table or in a corner of the room for relaxed coastal chic.
Add a feature wall in your bathroom or kitchen to evoke the colours of the sea. Soft blues and metallics are a great look for a coastal-themed wallpaper. Epitomise beach-hut chic with rustic storage ladders and coastal-style accessories.
