Colour Palette: Seaside Chic

It may be the spring/summer season's perennial favourite but that doesn't put any black marks against the seaside theme for Mr. Bazaar. No siree! By mixing in your modern pieces with vintage finds you can add texture and depth to the scheme. Take this armchair, for example. Yes, it has a classic blue and white stripe fabric but then reclaimed chair legs give the piece so much more interest than standard legs. Meanwhile, a collection of found glassware mixed in with new buys creates a stylish vignette upon the light mint sideboard. I don't know about you, but Mr. Bazaar could happily have a little beach hut that looked this inviting! Do you incorporate any coastal style into your home?

  1. I'm all about coastal style, even in my urban abode. I can't stay away from all things nautical and love to collect beach treasures like stones, shells, and driftwood to decorate my home with! I think it's a pretty classic look...

  6. I do incorporate a bit of seaside chic and its actually a new addition, just this week I got some beautiful resin coral from pottery barn to put on my side tables in the lounge room! PS - Love when you break down design elements like this so I know how to achieve the look! You are too good!

  9. Lovely colour palette, and lovely chair! Reading your blog post reminded me of 4 mosaics I made years ago, inspired by the tide; they're in an art gallery in the US and I suddenly felt the urge to have them back and display them at home...so thanks for the inspiration :)

  11. I love that pinstriped fabric. Perfect shade of blue, and as you said, looks great with those legs. Beach house colour scheme is a classic that will never die. Makes me in the mood for a holiday (again!).

  18. I love coastal accents. We have a few in one of our bathrooms...but the house is so not coastal I don't want it to seem too out of place!

  19. It looooks for comfy! my 'seaside' decor in my home is a large white coral (which we use as a bowl) placed on top of our very modern tv (+ black) tv stand.

  20. I live in a seaside town and I never thought of decorating my house as well, perhaps because this style reminds me a lot of holiday homes. I may indeed reconsider .. would be pleasant to be "on vacation" all year!
