Contemporary coastal style for a calming home
Whether you’re building a home by the beach, the city or the countryside, you can always capture a piece of your favourite seaside town with a Modern Coastal styled home. A twist on traditional blue and white coastal house designs, the Modern Coastal theme has a fresh, contemporary edge.
Grounded with a base of neutrals like whites, creams, beige and greenery, a Modern Coastal home also gives you the opportunity to add personality with subtle colours like terracotta, coastal green and pops of baby blue and navy.
In the following blog we’ll let you in on the styling secrets of our Modern Coastal display homes, like the much-loved Bentley and new showstopper Sacramento, helping you to style a Modern Coastal home.
1. Modern Coastal kitchens
The key to a light and bright Modern Coastal kitchen is a predominantly white and oak colour scheme. For a luxe feel, incorporate a thick Caesarstone benchtop and brass tapware. Interest is created not with bright colours, but with subtle textures and varying neutral tones.
Take our Bentley for example, the on-trend white cladding cabinetry creates an instant coastal holiday vibe in your very own home.
2. Modern Coastal living rooms
Resembling a tropical oasis, Modern Coastal living rooms are a sanctuary for the whole family to retreat and relax. The indoor living area flows right through to alfresco, perfect for entertaining in the Australian climate. Our Sacramento floorplan captures the essence of this indoor-outdoor flow perfectly.
Stuck on colour selections? Set the tone with neutral flooring throughout the home, such as concrete-look ceramic tiles or light oak floorboards.
3. Modern Coastal bedrooms
When it comes to your Modern Coastal bedroom, the right colour selections and styling can capture the feel of your favourite coastal hotel. White linens and natural bedding allow the room to feel calming and cosy, while contemporary design touches like scalloped wallpaper and soft curtains add opulence.
For the finishing touch, a splash of coastal colouring in your soft furnishings create focal points in your design. For help on how to style a Modern Coastal home, browse our Modern Collection brochure.
4. Modern Coastal bathrooms
If you’re after Modern Coastal bathroom ideas for your colour selections, the key is creating a calming ambience. With lots of natural light complementing fresh whites, light oak and greys, you’ll be sure to retreat and relax in your Modern Coastal bathroom, often.
For warmth, choose brass fixtures and fittings, as well as fun design elements like shell-shaped lighting fixtures. Of course, the hero of the room should be a freestanding bath in your ensuite (like in our Bentley!) – the ultimate luxe sanctuary.
