The coastal style is popular in NZ and it's a question we get asked a lot of. "What colours should I use for my holiday home" or "I'm after a beachy look", it's not surprising considering that we are an island surrounded by beautiful beaches and waters. There are many beautiful colour combinations you can use to create your Coastal Style. There are many interpretations of the Coastal look whether your looking for light, fresh and restful, distressed looks with pops of colour, or a coastal luxe style and it goes on... today however we are sharing a beautiful soothing and restful colourway suitable for a Coastal Abode using Coastal inspired colours and neutrals that create a light fresh and serene feel in an interior space .
Starting with our Beluga white, a beautiful bright grey white, bright but not stark with beautiful complex grey underlying tones, it pairs well with blues and greys so is always our first pick for Coastal style homes.
Followed by Royal Navy as our dark anchor for a space and when paired close to Beluga lets of a strong sophisticated coastal vibe. Royal Navy is a beautiful dark deep blue.
Bach blue is a beautiful pale blue with soft grey undertones, adding a soothing blue to the space that is fresh and soft and sits well with both greys and blues.
Stormy Creek is our blue based mid grey and also pairs really well with blues followed by sea mist a beautiful pale grey that has subtle warmth, it will still lighten and provide a fresh look and feel but the underlying tones will provide a lovely subtle warmth to the colour palette.
Whether you're looking to create a Coastal Abode through colours on the walls, like using our Matte Estate Wall paint in Bach Blue with Beluga skirting in Velvet Luxe or maybe something a little more dramatic with Royal Navy on the walls with a painted sideboard in Beluga with our Premium Chalk Paints up against it. Or maybe you're looking at a few colours to incorporate in a decorative paint finish as a feature furniture piece in your Coastal Abode such as painting in Stormy creek with a Beluga coloured wax or Sea Mist with a Bach Blue coloured wax on your furniture. These are all great colours and neutrals to consider for your Coastal Abode
