Australian Beach Style Homewares for Autumn Create a Coastal Lifestyle All Year Round
QUEENSLAND, Australia May 2014 – Most Australians love bringing the beach home with them, and now creating a tasteful coastal vibe in the home is possible even in the cooler months. In an effort to help beach lovers find the perfect home balance, Australian autumn homewares fashion expert and co-founder of Beach Abode Living Nicki Richards shares her advice on creating a coastal feel at home during autumn and winter.
When supporting her customers to choose the right Australian beach style homewares for autumn, Nicki Richards often sees coastal style homes brimming with notoriously gaudy themes, such as red and blue nautical stripes and maritime motifs. “Soft furnishings that are hard wearing, high quality and simple in design are ideal,” Nicki says. “Start with a design scheme that is based on natural plain textured fabrics. Take your cues from nature and add a few splashes of colour. Quality rather than quantity is fundamental.” www.beachabodeliving.com.au
When styling an outdoor room or area, Nicki suggests that people opt for hardy, washable and weather resistant furniture. “Go for a ‘mix and match’ look in similar colours but different patterns, or vice versa. You can afford to play around with colour a lot more in outdoor areas, especially in Autumn to provide the home with a brighter look during what many beach-lovers consider a bleaker time,” she says. “Bright stripes and geometric patterns add a sense of fun and playfulness to your outdoor room, deck, or lounge area. Nothing screams coastal like blues, greys, aqua, taupe, turquoise and foamy whites.”
According to Nicki’s business partner and co-founder of the Australian beach style homewares online store Alex Wickings, a classic coastal style is casual, relaxed and spacious, with breezy interiors that flow seamlessly into the outdoors. “Resist the urge to put too many items of furniture in the room, and accessorise with soft furnishings and décor,” says Alex. “Using more shades and textures of white will make your home seem lighter. Sparingly splash your favourite coastal accent colour like turquoise and tones of coastal blues. Adding some cool colours of blues and greens will also reflect light and make a room look brighter and bigger.” www.beachabodeliving.com.au

You will bring the beach to your home by choosing colours and textures that reflect the natural elements of the beach side environment.”
