Let The Light In


White, bright and light.

The key to coastal style is lots of light. For this reason you will often see white used a lot in beach houses ~ it picks up the natural light and amplifies it. Another way to invite light (and ocean views if you're lucky!), is with large windows and glass doors. Dress windows with breezy, white curtains made in organic fabrics like linen and muslin, or with chunky, white timber plantation shutters which lets you control both the light and privacy. A cheaper, more affordable way to go is with sheer roller blinds that tend to disappear and have the lowest impact on a room. Fill you home with light then add white painted timber furniture, white bedlinen and white cotton slip covered sofas to complete the look.
