Book Description

March 2008
Coastal Style is a magnificent celebration of simple shoreside life. Featuring hundreds of fabulous photographs of homes around the world, it covers all aspects of decorative seaside style—from the creation of light and breezy rooms to the selection of simple furniture and furnishings that echo the natural beauty of the surf and sand. Also featured are tips on the best fabrics to use—from nautical stripes to cool cotton canvas—and advice on coastal colors, from shades of oyster gray to bold splashes of aquamarine. Whatever type of home you have, from a high-rise apartment to a getaway in the country, you can create a beachy feel. Simply follow Sally Hayden and Alice Whately’s room-by-room guide to seaside chic, and you will discover how to make tranquil living areas, balmy bedrooms, and shipshape kitchens. Cool understatement is key—and this extends to marine-inspired bathrooms and outdoor living areas that celebrate the lazy elegance of sun-warmed decks and the pleasure of cooking and eating al fresco. • Fabulous photographs by Paul Massey. • Hundreds of photographs provide inspiration for coastal style, whatever type of home you have.

5.0 out of 5 stars COASTAL STYLE Aug. 6 2009
By Minze
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really like this book because in my eyes this is how seaside style should be.
Lots of whitewashed interiors kept simple and humble. I do not connect with these huge
seaside mansions, called cottages, they show in other books.
Just a little fisherman's hut is enough to enjoy the coast. And this book has captured this idea.
I also ordered Barbara Jacksier's Waterside Cottages and hope it will be similar in style.
I am tired of looking at Architectural Digest type homes. Show us how real people live and how to
enjoy the scenery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic, but sophisticated beach home ideas May 10 2008
By endless summer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a good book on the basics of how to decorate a coastal home. For the novice in "beachy" decor or the landlubber who craves a coastal look in their landlocked home, it gives general information about paint colors, lighting, accessories, furniture choices, utilizing the natural beauty of the ocean view, and use of a variety of textures to enhance the seaside home. The photography is superb, but i found the colors atonal and drab at times and the distressed furniture and "shabby chic" look somewhat boring and unappealing. The authors' tone is quite sophisticated and they seem to write with a definite European sensibility and flair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Resourse & Coffee Table Book Nov. 15 2009
By SVerity - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have seen this book in many exclusive homeware stores throughout Sydney [Australia] at quite a high mark up - so was easily tempted to purchase on Amazon with competitive pricing and AUD being quite good at the time. Overall this book is both an inspirational & aspirational book. It can easily sit comfortably on a coffee table or - as in my case in my design library as a resource to refer to for pure visual & wordsmith candy. I enjoyed looking through this book - however if you are thinking with will give you a blow-by-blow directive on how to set up a Coastal style - this is not the book for you - this is at a higher interpretive aesthetic level. All the same an incredibly gorgeous book and one worth adding to your library. Enjoy.

By arlie1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Living on the east coast of Australia, and only 100 mtrs from the sea, I found this book helpful and inspiring. We have used some of its ideas for our beach house and they have worked well. If you are doing up a beach house it is certainly worth buying. Makes a great coffee table book also.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay Dec 30 2012

It was more like a coffee table display book. I was looking for inspiration to build a real beach home. It was not what I was looking for.
