Living in Vancouver, we are surrounded by beautiful west coast design. But, how do you create a coastal interior? Here are the key ways to create the perfect west coast home.

Tip number one…pick the right finishes.

Coastal homes feature wood, neutral coloured tiling and wall paint, and simple cabinetry.

Mixing in raw concrete is also a great option!

The next thing to consider is the functionality of your home.

A home must look and feel great. Create a cozy living room you want to spend time in. Both of these living rooms have such an inviting feel!

Mix in cool greys to create an edgier feel

The dark stools tie in the dark details like the contrasting grout, and the slate countertop. Paired with the warm woods, these kitchens still have a warm west coast feel.

Add plants

Adding greenery is crucial in any home. West coast Californian homes often have tropical plants inside, where maple trees are more typically seen in Vancouver.

Consider a rustic touch

West coast modern always has a softer feel than traditional modern homes. The mid-tone woods really break up the space. The brick work in the second is also a great touch! Don’t be afraid of adding some rustic detailing as it pairs perfectly with west coast style.

The rounded counter, and the rounded mirror offer a softer feel to these spaces. Thoughtful touches like this are what really make a space look complete.

Create a space for entertaining

These warm kitchens look like the perfect places to host a weekend brunch. The mixed woods look perfect together!

Add some colour…

Add touches of colour with art, cushions and rugs. We love using blues with mid-tone woods and greys.

Accessorize like a pro

The leather drawer pulls and bundled wood side table complement coastal decor perfectly.
