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.

But Hamptons Style is not only for those with unlimited funds who live on the beach. Regardless of whether you’re coastal or country, there are only a few key elements to creating your own relaxing but elegant Hamptons Style sanctuary.
