Shop The Look: Coastal Meets Modern
May 13, 2019
Creating a coastal look doesn’t have to be clichéd. The essence of a stunning coastal look is creating a space that feels relaxed and is rich in various textures. Here’s our guide to creating a beautiful coastal design for your living room.
STEP 1: NEUTRAL TONES OFFER A RELAXED LOOK
Firstly, choose a sofa with a relaxed look. The way to do this is to use slipcovered sofas – they’re easy to wash, especially if you choose white! Our Lena 95″ slope arm slipcover sofa is the perfect example of this. Once you have a neutral base, you can start layering in the textures.
STEP 2: INTRODUCE TEXTURES
Next introduce texture, through pieces like our wool pebbled rug and Amani Rope and Glass Cocktail table. Our coastal feel Amani Rope & Glass table is such a good example of combining modern and coastal elements. Its sleek glass top adds an element of style; plus it’s also super durable so no need for coasters!
STEP 3: MAKE THE ROOM RELAXED
The console and floor lamp aren’t coastal, but have soft forms that work in with the relaxed vibe. Our Wishbone Lounge Chair with a bit of rattan is the perfect contemporary addition. Think comfort, coziness, and soft textures to give the room a relaxed feel.
STEP 4: INTRODUCE COLORS
You don’t have to use the typical coastal colours of navy and white. Our Hmong print pillows introduce an ethnic element whilst also complimenting the coastal feel. You can also add tropical prints to add a beach feel to your coastal look, but keep any bright colours to a minimum.
