Living spaces offer us the opportunity to retreat, rest and rejuvenate. To help you create a space in your home to enjoy this holiday season, we spoke to the experts at Volpes who shared a few tips on how to bring some coastal style into your home and how to nail the look the first time around.

Create a sanctuary

The easiest place to do this is in your own bedroom. This space is all yours and a space you can retreat to for an hour or two. Choose all-white linen for a truly tranquil space or natural tones to tie back to the beach theme.

Opt for organised minimal chic

Part of the reason we love to get away is that we leave all of our everyday clutter behind. So give your home the minimalist overhaul it deserves with some handy and aesthetically pleasing storage solutions that will add to your tranquil and elegant look.

Treat yourself to a spa at home

Think about the everyday items you use, which would really make a big difference if they had a touch of luxe added to them. It's so easy to do, envelope bath sheets in gorgeous colours for your bathroom, plump patterned scatter cushions for your lounge or bedroom or luxuriously soft sheeting for your bed. Quick and easy changes that will make a big difference.

Add eye-catching details

Scatter cushions are the easiest way to add a theme to any space and tie a look together or add a punch of colour to a muted colour palette. Mix and match similar tones and textures for an effortless yet elegant look.

Choose your coastal décor items carefully

Whether you live on the coast or in the city, add decorative touches such as a few sailboats on a coffee table or outside with your basket of towels. From there, choose coastal colours such as blues and whites to fill your home.

Consider how you will use the space

One or two throws in a bedroom or lounge is a necessary addition for a marathon afternoon book reading session or a dinner and a movie night at home. Place your throws on the edge of the bed or rolled up on the armrest of a couch for easy access.

Complete the look

Mystical voile curtains add an airy feel to a room but still let the lovely summer sun in, a definite must for summer days when indoor/outdoor living is at its best... Especially if you have a view that you can't bear to close up.
