Add a coastal feel to your home with cool pieces that take laid-back living to a refined new level

Whether your home overlooks a body of water or not, you can still capture that refined, laid-back coastal feel by embracing the right textures and tones. Pair raw materials like timber and rattan with sumptuous, tactile fabrics and neutral, earthy tones. Add a few dynamic touches to bring everything to life and most importantly, don’t overdo it. Keeping things understated is the cornerstone of this look.
