Modern & Minimal Beach Style

Modern coastal design blends the sleek minimalism of modern architecture with a sophisticated beachy feel of Coastal design. The result is typically a space filled with clean lines, coastal whites, natural linens, and definite nods to the beach!

Elements of Modern Beach style for the home:

  • Lots of White! White walls, white cabinetry, white accents;
  • Wood - Driftwood, Beech, Ash, Bamboo...light woods, concrete floors, cool tile, or very dark floors, for high contrast in a contemporary setting;
  • Clean lines...simple trim or limited architectural detail, its more about the use of material in large scale;
  • Large spare windows and doors (no mullions) that fold back and open to outdoor green spaces that have water features like pools, fountains and green walls in limited space;
  • White or natural soft furnishings, over scale sectional sofas and deep chairs;
  • Large pieces of art work and sculpture that have impressive impact;
  • Big table books and large modern lighting.
