That Coastal Look In Basingstoke

There is nothing more relaxing that hearing the lapping of water on the sea shore, as you stretch out on the the sand, soaking up the atmosphere without a worry or care on your mind.

If you live near the beach, then lucky you. But for most residents of Basingstoke, the chances of hearing a seagull or waves lapping on the shore will be pretty non-existent.

But if you want to capture the essence of beach living, then there is a great article on the Karndean blog which talks about what you can achieve with a little lateral thinking.

Here is the first tip they give: Firstly, look to the colours of the sky, sea and sand for your inspiration. You’ll be surprised at how many different tones can be used to create your coastal haven, from subtle pebble greys to worn denim blues. 

Achieve a Mediterranean villa look with a whitewashed colour scheme. Airy and refreshing, white will illuminate your space and provide an ideal backdrop for ocean-inspired details. Invoke a chilled beach hut vibe with wall panelling, and avoid the room looking stark by choosing a sandy toned floor laid in an interesting herringbone design.
