Celebrate International Woman’s Day 8th March 2017 by appreciating the special women in your life. Lets shout out and acknowledge their achievements.
In the comments below tell me who inspires you, and how they have impacted your life.
My all time favourite quote, once said by Oprah and many others is “You can have it all, just not all at once.”
My perfect address would be by the beach with undisturbed 360 degree views of the ocean. The home doesn’t need to be state of the art, in fact the look would be casual, relaxed and a place to call home.
So if you can’t have the beach view ,then let’s bring the lifestyle home. A great beach colour palette echoes all shades of blue crisp white and neutral tones of the sand.
The beach style varies and can be tailed to suit your taste and budget. Look at our top 3 styles and select the one that is right for you.
The beach lifestyle is all about fun in the sun, and sand between your toes. This design style is relaxed, no fuss and a mixture of comfortable inexpensive furniture items.
Distressed wood and painted furniture showing the sign of age creates a comfortable atmosphere. Draw inspiration from the beach with soft white and neutral tones with paint colours and floorboard options.
A nice coastal touch is the use of driftwood furniture and aqua blue accessories in vases and ornaments to give you that holiday feel. Don’t forget to hang up the “Gone fishing” sign on your way out.
This is taking the beach look to another level, adding an air of luxury and sophistication through using simple clear lines in the furniture and accessories.
Draw inspiration from the aqua tones of the water, a perfect bedroom colour which can be used in the bedspreads, wall art and side tables.
The iridescence sparkle of the ocean can be replicated by using shot fabrics and silks for cushions . If you want a light coloured couch you can’t go wrong with using leather, durable and reliable.
This colour pallet used a range of brilliant blues and turquoise mixed with white and soft brown. Perfect flooring options are grey floorboards and soft neutral carpet colours. The beach look for those who like their comfort.
After a sanctuary look and feel then use the relaxed colours from nature, draw inspiration from driftwood using quality linen fabrics and cotton in your furnishings.
Cane furniture adds a relaxed style yet is durable and economical. This look is serene, uncluttered and free from mess.
We have moved away from the causal put your feet on the furniture to a styled form of everything in its place. The key to this look is using a mix of high quality materials and fabrics with comfortable free form furniture.
We hope you are inspired to add a touch of the beach lifestyle into your home this summer, remember a change is as good as a holiday.
Happy designing, till we meet again.
