Whether you have a bach or simply want a similarly casual and comfortable vibe at home, don't look past beach colours that evoke the sea, sky, sand and surrounding scenery to create a soothing space.
Try a delicate greyed blue like Resene Half Dusted Blue, a chilled-out ice blue like Resene Oxygen, a sea glass green like Resene Nebula or a cloudy white like Resene Sea Fog. Opting for Resene Colorwood Whitewash or Resene Colorwood Light Greywash on timber elements will give off a softly lived-in look and allow the natural beauty of the wood grain to show through.
This sort of colour scheme is not only easy on the eyes, it can also be easily adapted to warmer and cooler weather. Pair these hues with blonde timbers, natural rattan, seagrass baskets and linen in the warmer months and heavily textured woven throws and rugs when the cooler weather sets in.
