Special Guest Post - Design Shuffle talks Coastal

Hello my island lovelies, hope you're relaxing with a good cup of coffee as we have an absolute special first from Oceania Island Living.

We're so extremely happy to introduce you to Design Shuffle and bring you this exclusive guest post all about Coastal Inspired Interiors.

Warmest island welcome to Design Shuffle...

Hi, I'm Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a wonderful online community of designers and design lovers from around the world. I'm lucky to be visiting Oceania Island Living today as a guest blogger; it's such a lovely blog. Inspired by the gorgeous coastal style of Oceania Island Living, I've picked eight of my favourite coastal rooms from around the world to share with you and your readers. I hope you enjoy them and discover lots of interesting decorating ideas! Thanks for letting me and Design Shuffle stop by to visit.

Coastal Interiors

Coastal design elements and artwork create a beautiful room that makes us long for a seaside vacation. Typical coastal colors are white, ocean blues, sandy neutrals, and sea glass green. Love the sophisticated coastal style of this room.

Coastal Interiors

This chic coastal bedroom has a bit of Hamptons style with the Chinese Chippendale style black headboards. The blue and white linens really pop against the black.

Coastal Interiors

Tropical style is all about natural materials and easy, breezy comfort. Love the woven chair and ottoman in this crisp space that has great tropical design.

Coastal Interiors

This galley kitchen has a coastal and nautical feel to it. The small footprint recalls a ship's galley and exterior lighting fixtures used indoors, often seen in coastal kitchen designs, also have a nautical feeling.

Coastal Interiors

With the white shutter style headboard and a mix of sea greens and blues, this bedroom exudes Southern coastal charm that recalls Hilton Head Island or the Outerbanks of North Carolina. Grasscloth on the wall is a perfect choice for this space.

Coastal Interiors

California modern coastal style is all about easy, casual living. Nods to the beach are subtle like the seaweed and coral inspired art; they don't dominate the space.

Coastal Interiors

British Colonial style is a popular coastal style that is inspired by the British West Indies. It's tropical and traditional combined into a beautiful coastal interior design style as seen in this bedroom design.

Coastal Interiors

Another British coastal style is more traditional and is based on the seaside resorts of England. With strong nautical influences, this coastal style has a lovely nostalgic feeling. Images [ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 ]
