Beach House Interior Design Ideas

Owning a beach house is a deeply personal choice, serving various purposes. It might be intended as a holiday retreat, a proximity to nature for recreational benefits, or even as an investment for generating rental income. The popularity of beach homes, particularly in the Sunshine Coast, has been noticeable amongst our industry. That’s why we offer a guide to assist you in crafting a coastal oasis within your beach home.

Minimalist Coastal Style

Transforming your beach home into a coastal oasis involves strategic attention to structural elements that define the space. Contemporary coastal homes often embrace simplicity with clean lines and minimal architectural features. Features in these homes often incorporate elements such as waterfall benchtops, concealed cabinetry, and a seamless indoor/outdoor flow.

Let natural light in    

To create a modern beach home, opting for an open floor plan with fewer walls is advantageous, allowing ample natural light to floor the space. This design choice not only minimises light obstruction but also promotes natural airflow, welcoming a fresh breeze and instilling that oasis ambiance into your beach home.

Coastal Colour Palette

In addition to the foundational structural aspects that shape a modern coastal oasis, decorating plays a pivotal role in bringing the space to completion. To transform your ocean beach home into a serene retreat, opt for colour palettes featuring white, beige, light blue, and soft greens, evoking the coastal environment and maintaining an airy ambience.

Materials and Fabrics

The choice of materials is equally crucial in influencing the overall feel of these spaces. Incorporating natural materials such as wood, rattan, and bamboo in both furniture and decor adds a sense of warmth and a connection to the outdoors. Other ways for your beach home to be luxurious but soft and inviting is by using fabrics like linen, cotton and jute for your upholstery, rugs, pillows and throws to add depth and interest.



To further accentuate the surroundings of your beach home, artwork can be a very powerful tool. To complement your beach home, artwork of marine life or coastal landscapes can bring the space together.

In the world of beach home design, the mantra of interior design often leans towards “less is more.” Therefore, as you style your beach home into a coastal oasis, remember to embrace a minimalist philosophy to create a luxurious, yet soft and inviting atmosphere.

Coastal Design Furniture

Coastal design furniture encompasses elements inspired by coastal and beachfront areas, aiming to capture their relaxed and breezy atmosphere within homes. While living near the seaside beach is ideal, coastal interiors can be achieved anywhere. Designers often blend coastal furniture with other styles to suit clients’ preferences. Examples include:

Boho Coastal: Blends eclectic patterns and textures with coastal elements for a relaxed beach vibe.

Rustic Coastal: Emphasizes raw, natural materials like weathered woods and stones, complemented by warm beachy colors and accessories.

Hamptons Coastal: Reflects luxury and elegance with soft, muted colors, clean lines, and high-quality materials, evoking a polished coastal lifestyle.
