Where I’d rather be: The Beach!

I love that decorating and beautiful interior design can transport you to a different place, era or even change your mood. With all the terrible weather we have had in Sydney the past few months I am loving the idea of a beachy interior. Looking at these images its easy to imagine yourself lying back and sipping a cocktail whilst listening to the roar of the ocean. I’ve tried to steer clear of the typical beachy style which can sometimes look a bit lazy and ‘shack like’. Hopefully these images inspire you to create your own modernised beachy interior.

Stunning the clean lines of the ocean coloured chairs really works well with the slat lined coffee table. There are touches of the beachy look here but it is mostly a modern interior.

I love this! The rope-work against that old wood veneer wall is fantastic!

Love, but I’m not a fan of that chunky side table between the two armchairs I think a slimmer or perhaps a glass one could have worked better.

Using a natural coloured woven rug is an easy way to create organic texture in a room. Those armchairs are a divine way of introducing a nautical theme into the space without it screaming “THIS IS A BEACH HOUSE!!!”.

This is very nautical, however those cushions are a good example of how something simple can cheapen a space. I’d simplify here and use less cushions and not double up on patterns. It usually looks better to use different prints and patterns in a similar scheme then have them all matching perfectly.
