Sometimes I just love collecting images that resonate with me…. not necessarily specific homes or furniture pieces. These images usually create an emotional response and maybe give inspiration for a colour scheme, an interesting use of textures or a fresh way to combine and display special pieces.
The soft ocean blues, worn painted surfaces and eclectic mix of pieces in the images below are some of my favourites.
They conjour up thoughts of warm relaxing days, soft seaside breezes and clear skies, a nice distraction as we feel our first touches of winter in Sydney.
Using these same soft hues in your own home will always ensure a relaxed and calming space. These tones always give a sense of space and openness.
I love the mix of treasures displayed on the wall. I am certain there would be many back yard sheds with similiar vintage fishing gear laying, waiting to be re discovered.
I love the starfish displayed on the wall and textured look of the slip cover on the armchair. Just imagine sitting back reading while the family play out on the sand.
Glass is timeless, blends with all colours and tones, reflects light beautifully and can often be picked up for next to nothing!
The key is not about the cost of the glassware, but the right combination of sizes, shapes and subtle colour variations.
This is my pick of these coastal images. The glass bottles are stunning and echoes the soft blues of the beach perfectly.
The collection of pieces in all these images are all simple, often vintage and in most cases inexpensive. The trick is letting them work together to create that coastal feel.
