Goin' Coastal!

natural linens and soft white palette

Living on the coast of Vancouver Island pairs nicely with my <3 of coastal decor. Go figure!
If you like this style you are probably what I call "light" people.
 I am definitely a light person....light fabrics ( WHITE!) and textures, natural light , unobstructed windows and much to my husbands dismay LOTS of lights turned on..especially in our dreary wet coast winters. 
There's "dark" people too a good way lol! Those that like the cozy dimly lit spaces , rich sumptuous fabrics and heavy gorgeous window coverings...think velvet, fur, candles. 

It's an interesting concept...Which are you?

White is the hallmark of Coastal decor. 
It spreads and amplies the light rather than soaking it up.

beachy decor

Layers of pale neutrals : paint in white , creams, light greys ,soft blues and greens.
 Matt and honed finishes. Natural fibres and organic elements :
 cotton, linen, straw, jute, sea grass, rope.

white painted suitcase accessory

Love love love this painted suitcase! 

Weathered wood that has been exposed to sun and sea for years. Bleached and worn. Painted wood that shows texture and imperfections . Wide floor planks and soft greyed wood furniture pieces. Rough and imperfect antique pieces that tell a story fit so well into this style

rope mirror and towel holder

Simple accessories of glass, shells , books and collectibles. Throw in a pop of your fav and unexpected colour or element and the space will truly reflect you!

All together = airy comfy inviting spaces that say "Come in- relax and enjoy!" 

Go on - Go Coastal!
