Creating a coastal vibe with unique lighting

The coastal style evokes a relaxed and comfortable style of decor that invites natural and organic textures, neutral tones and ocean-inspired colours. 

With these simple style tips, you can create a coastal vibe with neutral lighting in your home.


Choosing the right colour

When you think of coastal or beachy decors, your mind may take you down to the deep blues of the ocean, but a coastal theme can incorporate neutral tones, natural timbers, and soft pastel tones.

The washed-out or weathered look of lighting in natural wood, husk or cane instantly transforms the vibe of a room into a relaxed coastal-inspired space.

For smaller living spaces or bedrooms, a rustic timber lamp base can be paired with a lampshade in softer tones of white or natural beige.


Incorporate different shapes

The soft organic shapes and natural curvature of vintage lighting invite the relaxed and soothing feel of a coastal locale.

Bell-shaped lampshades made from husk or cane are perfect hung from the ceiling over a dining table or bench, or fixed to a lamp base and placed on a vintage side table or vintage buffet.

A longer-shaped paper and bamboo lighting piece will brighten the corner of any room. Choose to hang from the ceiling for a prominent feature or placed on a floor lamp base for a more subdued element.


Unique lighting options

Use textures

The right textures exemplify the raw beauty of coastal decor. The rustic, often imperfect appearance of woven or cane increases the connection between indoors and outdoors. 

When styling your lights, pair natural textures together like a rustic wood lamp base with a soft natural linen lampshade. Or husk lampshades hung over a solid timber bench or vintage table.


Use vintage lighting in your home to create a coastal vibe

With a coastal style, generally, less is more. The use of rustic lighting is a simple nod to the raw beauty of the coast and a simple way to transform a space.
