What is Coastal Living?


South Africans particularly Capetownians love the outdoor, coastal living environment where land meets sea which influences our interior style on the coastal trend. With summer being here,  we seen an influx of relaxed style notes with a decidedly coastal influence, perfect for refreshing our homes. But what exactly is coastal living?

Coastal Living is about injecting a hint of that carefree holiday atmosphere with an inspirational style that can be depicited by the sea. Natural inspired hues are taken from classic seaside scenes, from calming blues to crisp whites, to warm sand beiges to liven up any family space or covered patio. White is always a great base shade to build upon for this look, providing the underlying calm and relaxing atmosphere. 

To get the Coastal Living look is in the details; this interior style comes alive when attention is paid to the smaller details of a room’s decor scheme. Look for classic motifs, such as anchors and shells, on soft furnishings from cushions to throws. These will add instant character to any living space and quickly spruce up tired furniture. Invest in coastal styled decorative accessories to bring finishing touches to the room, from scented candles to trinket trays, to help bring a coastal vibe into your space.

Last year, Constantia Fabrics presented the Coastal linen collection showcasing “where land meets sea” for that perfect outdoor lifestyles with a blend of linen and cotton, and a touch of engineered fibre. The collection is ideal for soft furnishings and slip covers, varing from multi, narrow and wide stripes to a lovely plain design.
