Relaxed comfort is the key to creating the ultimate luxury beach house look. Natural fibres, fabrics and materials such as recycled timber, linen and driftwood combine with luxurious accessories and big comfy pillows to create a haven to relax in at the end of the day that feels as good as it looks.
Combining the rustic comfort of a seaside shack with the relaxed glamour of a high-end retreat, these interior design ideas complement Australia’s laid-back coastal areas as well as harbour- and beach-side homes in and near the city. Modern and light-filled, try design elements that embrace seaside living.
This formal living room features a smart seating arrangement. I love the club chairs and the fabrics used in this space.
To bring comfort and warmth to the cooler colours associated with a coastal home, use plenty of soft furnishings, including throws, cushions, rugs and wall hangings. It’s impossible to not love this dining room. The stunning distressed table and chairs work beautifully with the beautiful rug and blue and white decor.
For the walls, painted weatherboard or a woven wall covering like seagrass wallpaper can add a decorative element to what is essentially a pared-back style. The family room has dreamy ocean views and cathedral ceilings. The ceiling is constructed out of Poplar, which is a type of wood commonly found in Southern California.
This traditional bathroom features a polished nickel lantern above claw foot bathtub with wall-mounted tub filler paired with Waterworks Easton Metal Stool. The master bathroom also boasts wainscoting and custom cabinets topped with white marble.
Wind-swept accessories, a fresh palette, weathered finishes and cosy furniture create a contemporary coastal home.
This gorgeous beach is just across the street from this beach house. Wouldn’t you love to live here? Imagine going for walks every day and listening to the waves…
