One of the keys elements to creating a welcoming coastal retreat is natural materials and textures. Consider materials such as untreated and recycled floorboards, sisal wool carpets, textured linen, natural cotton, leather, suede, bamboo, coral and ceramics. Surfaces can be handcrafted or primitive. These natural elements are usually affordable and they also give a space a casual, relaxed feel. Natural colours and tonings also help to create a relaxed, coastal feel to your home. These colours create neutral background for an eclectic mix of furniture and accessories.
Bring the outdoors inside by incorporating items like driftwood, reclaimed timber, natural stone and other elements of nature into your scheme.
