How to achieve coastal chic
Almost every summer sees the return of the nautical style, in some form of trend. In fashion and interiors, coastal chic is synonymous with the warmer months.
You may have noticed that the colour blue was a big hit in interiors this spring and that paved the way for the nautical themes of summer.
Pair spring’s popular indigo blue walls with white or glossy cream cabinets for an instantly stylish yet versatile kitchen, as seen in Magnet’s Apollo Cream.
Opt for a natural or natural looking worktop surface such as beech wood or a colmar oak laminate to give your coastal style an authentic beach-front feel. The warmness added by the appearance of used natural materials such as wood, works much better than impeccable glossy veneer of granite for example.
The galley kitchen is an incredibly popular layout, but don’t forget the roots of this design, originating from the formation of the kitchen in a ship’s galley. So if you have this layout in your home, what better way to be true to your kitchen’s roots than with a nautical style design?
A splashback can create an attractive focal point within the kitchen, and with such a wide variety of colours and materials to choose from it is easy to choose one to fit your coastal theme. Magnet’s laminate splashbacks comes in a green glass effect that mirrors the deep sea’s shimmery hues.
Think past the anchor motifs and boat accessories that you might associate with bathroom décor, coastal chic can be more understated and perfect for a timeless look in your kitchen.
