Coastal Modern Mood Board- How to get the Look

Modern Coastal Mood Board

I have been working with some great clients at the moment who have approached me to furnish their Living/Dining and Master Bedroom.

During our Initial Design Consult, I ask lots of questions to understand the brief to ensure I understand their requirements, style and outcome.

With all this information, we start off the design process with the Concept Stage.
The Concept Stage includes a Mood Board which is a collection of inspirational images, and suggested colour palette to give you a sense of the overall look and feel of the space. It's a collection of thoughts and feelings all in once space to help form a clear design direction so we don't go off tangent when it comes to the shopping component of the process!

Above is a Mood Board I put together for my clients and based on their brief from the Initial Design Consult, they want their new home to feel warm, inviting and reflect the beautiful beach-side environment.

To create a Modern Coastal interior, below are a few tips to help you on your way:

  • Incorporate a mix of timber, rattan and linen to create a relaxed feel

  • Pops of tan leather and navy are very popular at the moment and that's because these two tones work so beautifully together.

  • Furniture should be comfy and relaxing. Think plush sofas in removable/washable covers.

  • Introduce soft sheer curtains for your window treatments.

  • Keep your homewares to a minimum. The overall feel should be light and airy.

If you are struggling to visualise how your home can look, get in touch. We can work together on one room or your whole house.

My design process is easy and I can guide you on how your home can reflect your style and personality. It's important to gather all this information first, otherwise, you will be walking through furniture showrooms blindfolded and utterly overwhelmed!!
