Beach Themed House | How to bring the coast into your home

There’s nothing quite like living by the surf and sand. Your home really does feel like a holiday, especially when you bring that coastal magic into your decor. When styling a beach house, or perhaps more accurately a “beach themed house”, we tend to gravitate towards the same Pinterest boards doused in rattan furniture and nautical accessories. But that’s not for home, home is for comfort no matter the weather or swell. 

A coastal home can be stylish and comfortable. You just need to know these three Hamptons style beach house essentials that won’t come up in the over-styled and non-functional beach Pinterest board.

Best couch for beach house

With work from home on the rise, you’re sure to find more excuses than most to have the lounge as your main office. Serving up the perfect pallet for serious business by the sea, the Coastal Sofa comes in three muted colours and one plush 3-seater size. 

Showroom quality with premium support, this coast-to-coast comfort that will have you relaxing through every meeting no matter the time zone. Pair it with the matching ottoman and you’ll feel like your living room is the executive suite.

Living in such a lush property means you can bet on people wanting to come around. No matter the size of the place – 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, 8 bedroom – nothing will stop them from coming to stay for the weekend. That’s why you have to be prepared with a sofa that’s a couch by day, bed by night. 

Queue the Cushy Sofa Bed (also known as the best sofa bed in Australia). Proudly Product Review’s 2023 Product of the Year, it’s armed with soft, pillowing cushions that you’ll really want to sink into. Taking you from sit to sleep in seconds, it’s the perfect place to crash after a long day in the sun. 

What’s even better? The heavier-weight fabric in six Aussie-inspired tones give a premium look and feel while also hiding any spills and stains. It’s a stress-free design for a stress-free lifestyle.

Beachy bedroom ideas 

We love a wooden finish in coastal styling, and bedroom furniture is no exception. Our Kirribilli Bed Base is one of our famous tool-free assembly timber bed frames. Sturdier than the red and yellow flags on a windy day, the Kirribilli Bed Base is engineered with FSC® certified timber. 

We’ve also removed the middle leg to give you 100% of the under bed footprint for storage to help you keep your space clean and tranquil – or to keep your favourite boogie board safe. 

All the surf-side relaxation without the sand you’ll never fully wash off, lay back into our Aussie-inspired Tencel Sheet and Duvet Sets. These babies are widely regarded by our happy customers as the best sheet sets in Australia – and for damn good reason.

In colours like Eucalyptus Green, Bottlenose Grey, and Bluegum, the TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres in our sheets and doona sets are sustainably sourced, so they don’t just feel good, they do good too. 

And when that inevitable bit of sand does sneak in, no worries. These eco-friendly sheets are a dream to clean and easily machine-washable so you’ll be back to sand-free snoozin’ in no time.

Complete your beach house styling with homewares

Your coastal home should look as enticing as it sounds, so layering throws and cushions is an easy way to add style to any space. As you shop for beachy decor, pay special attention to your colour schemes. Are you going for sunny and bright? Or maybe chill and coastal? Either way, we’ve got the colours to match your theme. 

Our bestselling Big Swell Throw is the go-to for beach house vibes. Really, the name says it’s all. Big Swell is an oversized, machine-washable luxury throw, available in sunny Surfers Paradise, moody Penguin Parade, and earthy Bush Scrub pallets. Buttery-soft and breathable, it’s perfect to cuddle into all year round.

Beach Bum cushion, Beachside cushion, Sand Dune cushion – we really love the seaside. Our ocean-inspired, life-proof cushion range adds a pop of texture, colour, and cush to every lounge, bed, and space. Crafted with sustainable organic cotton and linen,  and machine-washable, our cushions are made to last even when your summer glow (gasp!) begins to fade. 

When we think of texture and layers, you can’t go past a great rug. Our Outback Rug is perfect for sandy feet with its unique, hand-knotted texture that doesn’t absorb sand, pet hair, or other grit. Handmade using biodegradable and natural fibre, the jute rug is strong and will stand the test of time.
