One of the fastest growing of all decorating styles, coastal interior design is by no means exclusive to coastal properties. Irrespective of how far you live from the seaside, the appeal of coastal interior design is both immense and universal. Perhaps because it brings to mind memories of enjoyable times spend by the sea, surrounded by family, friends and fabulous scenery.
There are various different types of coastal interior design that can be incorporated into a property. However, coastal interior design typically centres on the use of ocean hues, sun-bleached whites, natural materials and strategically faded fabrics. Coastal interior design is, in many respects, a celebration of light, life and enjoyment of the great outdoors.Coastal interior design can be as bold or as understated as you want it to be, though in all instances provides the opportunity to create a relaxing and tranquil haven, separated from the frantic pace of 21st century life.
What is Coastal Interior Design and Style?
At David Hales Design Studio, our clients often ask – what is coastal interior design? What exactly defines coastal interior style, and how can a coastal interior ambience be achieved? As with all aspects of interior design, coastal interior style means different things to different people.
Some of our clients prefer American coastal style, which combines warm whites with soft furnishings, reflective surfaces, nautical décor and maximisation of natural light. By contrast, others prefer tropical island coastal design, which incorporates much brighter colours, more complex patterns and exotic natural materials. Mediterranean coastal style is also popular throughout the UK and Europe, influenced heavily by the classical interior design themes of Greece, Spain and Italy.
