Coastal Style Decorating Guide Part 5: Textures and Materials

PART 5

# Textures and Materials

Texture has an important role in coastal homes in providing harmonious natural warmth and depth as well as compelling visual interest. Just as natural colours and patterns are suggestive of coastal style, so too are textures of materials inspired by the seashore.

# Key Elements

*Go natural. The classic beach house contains a plethora of textures, specimens and colours reminiscent of the nautical environment. Creating contrast by combining rough and smooth  textures, adds depth and visual interest to a room. Eg lumpy coral on a smooth wooden cabinet, or driftwood pieces placed with some smooth pearly white shells.

* Furniture, particularly timber, oiled, painted, whitewashed or lime-washed styles as well as wicker cane or rattan add textural variety. A single coat of paint to reveal the grain or better yet, flaking or sanded back to reveal different coloured undercoats produce an attractive weathered look.Learn how to paint wicker here

* Floor coverings such as rugs and mats made from jute, sea-grass or other natural looking fibres continue the native feel through the home.

Soft furnishings that you love the feel and look of will also add that textural variety. Stick to your colour palette and don’t go over board. See my next blog post on coastal fabrics…

Choosing The Right Outdoor Cushion Covers

When choosing cushion covers that you intend to use outdoors, you want to know they will endure the harsh Australian Summer sun, wind, rain, mildew and dirt.

Discover the 3 key things you need to know to get GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY when choosing outdoor soft furnishings. 

Watch the short video below.

Beach Abode Living are the experts in outdoor cushion covers and have designed a range especially for the Aussie outdoors.

Reversible UV treated Outdoor Cushion Covers

So, how does it feel to know your soft furnishings are especially made for the outdoors?

Don’t buy cheap cushions that will fade and fall apart in a few months. They will cost you money! Go for something made specifically for the outdoors and know that they’ll LAST FOR YEARS.

* Beach Abode Living outdoor cushions have been made using HIGH GRADE 100% POLYESTER. Natural fibres such as cotton are not as durable as polyester and tend to absorb moisture, dirt and odours and will deteriorate if left outdoors.

* The polyester fabric used in Beach Abode Living outdoor cushions is SOFT TO THE TOUCH and very comfortable to lean against, but you can be assured it is tough and durable and can withstand full sun and rain.

* 100% Clean Polyester filling inserts are used for all Beach Abode Living cushions as they are allergy free, odourless, and washable.

* Heavy duty plastic zipper sliders have been chosen instead of metal sliders which can rust over time

* Clever reversible design is like having two cushions in one.

* Attention to detail including stylish contrast piping just adds a touch of class to your outdoor decorating.
