Welcome to Coastal Style!

This blog was born out of a passion for living by the sea
and all the fabulous things that coastal living has to offer.




My blog, Coastal Style, is a place to share the best things about a coastal lifestyle.

As an interior designer who started off my career as a fashion designer,
 I love all things creative ~
  not just inspiring interiors,
 but photography, food, cooking, fashion, beautiful books and magazines
~ they all get me going and inspire me!



.
If I didn't have this place to share my thoughts and ideas
I think my head would explode!!!

On this blog I share my favouite beach homes,
the season's fashion trends,
 sunscreen tips, beach hair and summer make-up.
 Beautiful places on the coast to visit,
summer hotspots around the globe 
healthy lifestyle choices
my favourite dishes and the odd fool proof recipe.

But mainly it's about decorating :-
rooms to inspire,
tips on decorating,
ways to save money and 
how to create a beautiful beach house.
Be sure to check out my Pinterest boards
if you're designing your own beach house.




My life on the coast!

I live in a sleepy coastal town called Anglesea on the Victorian coastline.
It's the beginning of the Great Ocean Road,
one of the world's most spectacular drives.

My husband is a Landscape Architect and I'm an interior designer.
~ so it's a match made in heaven!
We both work from home and work hard at keeping a balance in life.
For us that means plenty of exercise, good food, sleep, relaxation and laughter.

This is a snippet of my life and a few of my favourite things.





This my new house by the beach.

This is my husband, Derek, who's a keen surfer!



Lazy weekends




Heading off for a surf

 


A Gin and Tonic is the perfect way to end the day!





Seafood in summer is my favourite.

The friendly locals!




Our town is famous for it's kangaroos - 
they live on the Golf Course and they hop around my backyard!
