Beachy looks to bring to your bach

16 Oct 2019

Summer is just around the corner so now’s the ideal time to get your bach ready before you get bogged down by the pre-Christmas rush.  And if you don’t have a bach, why not try these ideas at your place so you can enjoy them year round?

Using paint and wallpaper are easy ways to freshen up any home and by choosing fun and fresh beachy colours and themes, you can add more happiness to your holidays.

Classic sea-inspired colours include washed blues, sea-foam greens, golden creams, sandy beiges and crystalline whites. Use accents of stormy dark blue and edgy black. Take a stroll down by the water to get inspired – nature’s palette is all around you.

Use patterns and motifs like shells and fish or go for a tropical vibe with palm leaves and hot tropical colours. Throw in some texture, along with materials like pale or whitewashed timber, rattan, seagrass matting and floaty sheer curtains.

Here are some ideas to try to breathe some life back into your place now that the warmer weather has finally arrived.

Try fresh crisp blues for a summery vibe. Tone-on-tone colour palettes are all about building up layer upon layer of similar shades.
