Here are our tips and tricks to help you create a coastal haven in your home:

Balance the Palette: Maintain a delicate balance between the soothing blues, sandy neutrals, and gentle greens. Avoid overwhelming the space with any one colour, as Coastal Core embraces harmony and tranquillity. Your colour pallet should be beautifully curated, think about the movement of natural light, the aesthetic should be clean and mindful. Evoking the same sensations as a beautiful white sandy beach with gentle sea spray breeze.

Natural Elements: Integrating natural elements into your room is an essential aspect of creating and authentic coastal connection, infuse your living spaces with organic statement pieces such as driftwood, seashells, and indoor plants to reinforce the coastal connection. For a more subtle approach choose natural fibre rugs, dress your furniture with cotton and lined textiles and add light, sheer curtains that allow natural light to filter through to add to the airy ambiance of your Coastal Core space.

Lighting: Lighting is arguably the most important aspect of any interior design trend. By taking a thoughtful approach to lighting in your Coastal Core design, you can create an inviting and tranquil space that perfectly complements the soothing hues and natural elements. Soft, diffused lighting allows you to unwind and immerse yourself in the serene embrace of Coastal Core, transforming your home into a peaceful coastal haven. Diffused lighting creates an airy and relaxed atmosphere, so consider installing dimmers to adjust the intensity of your lights as needed.

Minimalist Approach: Embrace a minimalist approach to decor to ensure that your coastal tiles still are the focal point of the room. Coastal Core conjures a clean aesthetic, this means anything you bring into the space needs to earn its right to be there, quality over quantity. For example, a small piece of driftwood can add depth to your space without overwhelming it. The clean aesthetic fosters a sense of calm, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the coastal-inspired haven you've created within your home.
