Coastal Whites

Painting with our Coastal Whites.
You love a relaxed lifestyle and the sea is your happy place. Your furnishings reflect this and how you want to live. We have kept this in mind when choosing our Coastal Whites.

People assume that when they find a white interior that appeals to them that any white will work. I will over a period of time showcase my favourite whites for a variety of instances and why.
Coastal decorating has a couple of iterations and this is one of them. The bright white... very white interior that is complimented by white soft furnishings and cabinetry and contrasted with all hues of natural timbers. The whites that we suggest have little discernible colour as a base note that way they do not fight with or clash  and help with the crispness desired to achieve this crisp look.   
You want crispness and freshness to be the feel and look and a perfect backdrop to the brilliant emeralds and greens of your indoor plants. You can now layer with optional touches of nautical blues and aquamarines, these whites are a blank canvas.  Soft furnishings in natural linens, cottons and flaxes work beautifully.  Also, add rich textured timbers and increase the warmth with metallics such as brass, or weathered fixtures in your taps and cabinetry hardware.
It is a simple calm look that always looks effortless and casual, but you have to get the base right.  I have chosen three whites for your to play around with this look.
We will always show you the full strength colour. To help make your colour choice easier you can order half or quarter strengths.

The Soft Pink Colour Pallet
December 03, 2021

The Soft Pink Colour Pallet

Once upon a time soft pink would have been the colour of choice for young children's rooms and eccentric authors.  Not now!

Soft Pinks, clear pinks and some with a hint of coral are all bringing a renewed contemporary elegance to our interiors. Oceanic pinks reminiscent of shells, quartzes and corals are now used in a softer new interpretation of coastal styling.  

Styling tips: use with all the ochres and tans as seen in all our homewares at the moment. Think pale pink quartz and how perfect this natural material appears in its earthy environment so match it with tans and buttery leathers, textured velvets, warm timbers and add green.  Showcase your indoor plant collection because pink loves green.
