Tropical Inspired Living

Feel like you are on vacation all the time by decorating your house with a tropical theme.

Carmen Miranda knew a thing or two about island style!
Think vivid green, bright colours, exotic fruit and tropical flowers.
To create this look at home ~ mix and match bold patterns,
cane, bamboo and lush indoor plants.
Potted palms will help bring the outside in and will create an indoor oasis.
Add some statement furniture pieces
like a swinging chair, a day bed
or something exotic from Asia or the Caribbean.
Decorate coffee tables and bookshelves
with coral, beautiful travel books and shells for a touch of the Bahamas!

Indigo Days



Moody Blues by Coastal Style Blog

The hottest shade of blue this season is indigo!

Indigo is the richer, more contemporary brother to navy. 
A deep, dreamy colour that sits confidently between blue and black. 
This colour looks great splashed on a wall as a feature colour.
A great practical colour for sofas, rugs and chairs.
It also works a treat as an accent colour for cushions, throws, ceramics and art.
This inky blue is beautifully suited to beach house decorating.

Bath Time | Hamptons Style

Bath Time

Sleep Tight by Coastal Style Blog

Bathing beauties

Take time out and pamper yourself in a blissful bathroom with beautiful details.
As an interior designer, I believe what sets a bathroom apart from the rest 
is not just beautiful tiles and finishes but it's the attention to detail.
Accessories and towels add personality and character to the space and set the style.
This could be Hamptons, tropical, beach cottage or modern minimalist.
Colours, bath products and decorator details should reflect the overall style and colour palette.
The end result will be a bathroom that is truly an indulgent experience.

A Modern Beach House in the Phillipines


A sophisticated coastal retreat.

If you have ever visited a busy Asian city such as Manila you can easily understand why the brief for this house was to create a modern, serene and luxurious oasis retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. 

Designed by the Philippine based architects Archipelago, this weekend retreat is blessed with amazing views of Nasugbu Bay and the South China Sea.

The design is light and airy, with open plan living areas and high ceilings making the most of both the ocean views and coastal breezes which is so important in any tropical climate. The colour palette is also cool and natural with hues of white, beige and natural stone flooring, decorated with nature inspired objects and artwork.

I am sure you would agree this style of house would sit comfortably in most coastal tropical climates.
