Living on the coast is a lifestyle like no other. A morning dip in the sea, an afternoon relaxing at the beach, a promenade stroll at night, happy, easy-going people you call neighbours… living in a coastal town, be it in a permanent residential home or just a holiday home has some seriously good plus points! And the town of Estepona, west of Marbella is becoming a property hot spot for those looking for the perfect coastal home.
This remarkable town offers a quality of life like no other: full of Spanish charm, rich history, beautiful scenery, boast-worthy dining, year-round entertainment options and stunning homes, Estepona, aptly named the Garden of the Costa del Sol, is an authentic gem of a place to live, work, holiday and retire.
For many who live here, especially those who have purchased either a traditional Spanish style home, beach-side apartment, or even a modern villa with views of our spectacular beaches, an ideal way to embrace Costa del Sol living is by injecting a coastal interior design scheme into your home. And we are not talking about beach huts, seashells or sandcastle art. While some of those elements may be integrated into a successful coastal interior design style, the real tranquility, elegance and luxury of a coastal home shines in the right combination of more subtle elements and details that come together in a way that leave you with the feeling of salt air, sunshine and relaxation throughout your entire home.
Our expert interior designers at Mad About Furniture in Estepona are always happy to work with your preferences, home design and specific layout to create your dream coastal living home. We can work with you to create a show home-worthy space, indoors and out, perfectly suited to your exact wants and needs. We always work with your personal style and inspiration, but for a coastal home we would suggest including some or all of the following interior design elements:
White Colour Palette: casual yet sophisticated, an all-white interior design style evokes summer breezes, calming waters and care-free living. Avoid a clinical feel by layering shades of white and plenty of contrasting texture for an eclectic yet elegant beachy atmosphere in any room of your home. For spaces that need a bit of added vibrancy, nature-inspired accent colours that mimic the Andalucían coastline are a wonderful element to include too. To match Estepona’s quaint town and sandy beaches, we particularly love soft blue-greys and muted shades of sunny yellow, but browns, greens and even rich shades of red or orange could be successfully incorporated into a Estepona beachside home interior design, all dependent on you and your home’s unique style.
Wood and Natural Elements: Always follow your personal tastes but in a coastal home let nature guide and inspire you when choosing furniture and accessories. Consider home accessories that use linen, rope or seagrass; and weathered wood or wicker chairs, tables, or other furniture pieces look great in a beach-inspired home. Casual yet refined is the look of an Estepona beach home, but with so much nature to take inspiration from, there are many ways to achieve it; so play around with different elements and work with your interior designer to mix and match the specific furniture pieces and accessories that you love to create personalized spaces with a wind-swept yet unmistakably luxurious look and feel our coast is known for.
Natural Light: Warm, sunny days at the beach don’t have to end at home. Choose window coverings that allow plenty of rays to shine through during the day (but don’t forget about heavier window shades or curtains in the bedroom to block unwanted light and ensure a good night’s sleep); and when needed, choose artificial lighting for your Estepona home that gives off that soft sunset-like look and feel: dimmers are a great way to achieve this, as are lamps and other lighting accessories with pattered or textured shades to break up the light that can otherwise feel too cold.
