How to Create a Coastal Look 

NOV 22|3 min read

Inspired by European holidays, bring summer styling into your home. 

Home styling – from where you’d rather be.

There’s a feeling of summer in the air. Whether it’s the longer days, the sound of cicadas or the scent of jasmine, we’re excited to welcome the sunny days ahead. Not all of us were lucky enough to jet to Santorini during the Australian winter, so we’re keen to bring that Mediterranean feeling into our homes this summer.

To get the most out of your space during the warmer weather, create a flow between your indoor and outdoor areas. We love using a European colour palette to create a consistent theme across every room. With light fabrics and shades of blue and white, the coastal-inspired style will help make your courtyard or backyard feel like a part of the home.

Insider Tip:

Living in the southern hemisphere, we’re no strangers to the difficulty of pairing summertime looks with Christmas styling. Abandon the red and green and opt instead for a theme that will suit your coastal styled home. Our Natural Branch Christmas Tree will look perfect with your linen and blues. Add ornaments in silver for a bit of wow-factor.  

Pop of colour  

If the sunny days and warm evenings are inspiring you to entertain, reach for colourful, Italian-style servingware. Our Viva La Vita range will have you feeling like you’re eating al fresco in Amalfi. With the traditional splashes of bright orange and vibrant red, these bold pieces will stand out beautifully on blue tablecloths - all while continuing your coastal theme. Decorate your table with a bowl of fresh citrus, lobster friends, and platters stacked high with crusty bread. Consider a playlist of your favourite Roma tracks to keep the Mediterranean vibes going at your next BBQ 


Insider Tip:

Make the most of all the extra sunlight this summer, with mirrors. Helping to bounce the light around to create an open, airy space, mirrors are a decorative choice that will work hard for you. Making the room appear bigger, we love the tonal Corsica Natural Oval Mirror.  

Bring the holiday feeling into your home with our latest collection.
