South African Coastal Style

South African Coastal Style


      Fusing sustainable materials with easy, modern living, a South African beach house takes the concept of 'beach shack' to a whole new level. A perfect blend of contemporary and casual utilising easily accessible (wood, concrete, metal, cottons & linens) in a clean modern interpretation.

      Elements that make up South African Beach Style:

      • Lots of white on walls and ceilings with little to no trim detail around door or window openings, clean and casual;
      • Ceilings with rustic exposed beams in white or reclaimed wood;
      • Natural wood floors and simple rustic or modern furniture elements;
      • Concrete counters and less structured kitchen storage. Outdoor kitchen and fire-pits, draught tolerant plants;
      • Simple cotton and natural materials, woven rugs, bed clothes and drapery;
      • Unique baskets and hanging light fixtures or coloured glass pendants;
      • Rustic designs, leather, animal hides and ethnic prints. Simple native crockery, footstools, rough hewn wood cutting boards and over large bowls;
      • Large linen or cotton sheets thrown over sofas and chairs. Bean bags, woven and unstructured style in furniture;
      • Handmade wood mantle and hearth.
