A Catchy Coastal Atmosphere

The Spirit of Southern Africa’s seaside is alive in this catchy coastal palette,
with earthy colours and fresh accessories and modern furniture.
Relaxed textures, simple stripes and plainly crafted pieces reflect
the comfort and informality of this lounge.


I can so easily live with these colours.
By combining the different textures and tones, this classic seaside palette results in an informal yet modern twist..


Slipcovers is always a good idea in keeping things practical at the coast and this adds to the cozyness. A nautical
blue-and-white striped carpet sits beautifully on this dark hardwood floor
and a stone cladded fireplace (or maybe the whole wall)

creates a subtle focal point, catering for the cold season. I love the touches of fresh greens being used throughout.
These touches are very important, from decorating your own paddles/surfboards to choosing scatter cushion fabrics, these are all simple combinations that really tie everything together beautifully in the end.

Lets have a look at how to create a similar look..


Easy-living Slipcovered Sofa, soft- or navy blue could also work well.

creating extra seating or a comfortable foot rest

Finally, remember that there is beauty in simplicity.
