Having the perfect beach house for holidays and family get-togethers is the ultimate dream. A beach vibe means freedom, freshness and total relaxation – who wouldn’t want that? Coastal style is all about sand and sea, timber, and a natural colour palette. Think ocean storm grey, navy blue, sea-glass green, sunset orange and coral pink – a perfect tropical theme!
Shaded nooks and alfresco dining areas
Create a casual outdoor space with comfortable garden seating. A timber daybed piled with comfy cushions styled to your colour palette will set the mood. Use characterful timber poles to create privacy screens, and pergolas or fences to provide privacy and shade. Latte poles are versatile and relatively simple to use. Paint wooden furniture white for an outside dining area, giving your home a Mediterranean feel. This will also set a blank canvas for the colours of your tiles and soft furnishings, to pop.
Set the mood with an outdoor shower
Why not go all out and add an outdoor shower? This instantly sets an exotic, tropical mood. If you plant a herb garden nearby, position it perfectly for a regular spray of water. Let Tile Styles create a gorgeous décor for the wall in ocean hues and include a step edge manufactured from your own tiles to keep a constant flow in your outside area by using the same tiles.
Remember that the perfect palette can transform your outside area AND increase the selling price of your home. Using custom cut tiles is a winning way of transforming your home, and you can’t go wrong with using neutral beach hues.
