As I sit here and write this post, outside is torrential rain and wind so not the most inspirational weather to be talking about coastal homewares but why not?
A beach or coastal theme is extremely popular in Australia because of our huge stretches of coast line and our love of living outdoors in the warmer weather.
You don’t need to over do it on beachy accessories, just a few different pieces around your home can give it a coastal feel.
Blues and pale greens and white can also be used anywhere to lighten up the room to make it more airy, if you have children and are cringing at the thought of white furniture, use it in accessories like cushions, curtains and decor.
Your table is also an easy way to bring a coastal element to a room. Table runners and dinner settings can both be used to great effect.
Using white in accessories is one way of bringing the beach inside, a white lantern or a grouping of white candles.
