Australian Coastal Style – How To Achieve this Beautiful, Elegant Look

Interior designers love the inspiration of Australian Coastal Style, perhaps because it evokes happy thoughts of the great outdoors and memories of childhood vacations. And while this design style is quite similar to America’s Hamptons Style, Australian Coastal Style is unique in that it uses more natural materials, has inspired tones, and suggests raw beachy vibes.

We don’t believe Australian Coastal Style can be replicated anywhere else in the world, which may be due to our laid-back personas, or perhaps it’s our glorious coastline with its stunning sandy beaches, endless inlets, and interesting harbours.

How To Create Your Own Hamptons-Style Sanctuary

The best way to describe the on-trend Hamptons look is ‘laid-back, effortlessly elegant, cool and classic, with creamy linens, tranquil blues, and plush velvets.’

Here in Australia (especially coastal Queensland) we’re blessed with a beautiful, seemingly-unending coastline – not to mention all the other natural and man-made waterways, so it’s not hard to see why Hamptons Style is gaining in popularity.

The best master bedrooms are a combination of style, functionality, and a touch of glamour – not to mention all the comforts we’ve come to expect from a comfortable yet elegant bedroom.

The most important room in your home is (arguably) the master bedroom, and we believe this room should not only be your sanctuary, it should be the most luxurious room in your home. Unfortunately, the master bedroom often consists of mismatched décor, dirty laundry, and awkward furniture layout.

Is Brown Replacing Black in Interior Design?

The prediction for the 2021/22 home interior design trend is that earthy, warm tones are edging out gray and white. And it’s not about black; black will never go out of style, but stylists predict that black is taking a back seat to brown, a warmer hue that’s becoming very popular – again! Yes, it’s true, brown is once again being incorporated into interiors, creating friendly, warm spaces.

It’s not that long ago that shades of brown, ranging from chestnut to chocolate and beige to copper were an obvious choice for interiors. It’s quite likely that your parents or grandparents homes’ were decorated with rich shades of the brown family.

Mixing Old and New Christmas Décor

Most of us have a collection of Christmas decorations that spans many years, sometimes decades. While some ornaments are sentimental and therefore hold great personal value, others not so much. Of course we want to hang our sentimental ornaments on our Christmas tree, but hanging all the Christmas odds and ends our kids made at school can start wearing a little thin after time. Even that Christmas garland we’ve been using for so many years may start looking a little tired and old.
