Vast open spaces are perfect for creating a coastal-inspired space. It emulates the wide open spaces of beaches and open waters of the ocean. When there are ample windows, like in this room, there is no feeling of separation between nature and structure.
Extending the wood floors up the wall further unifies this space. It creates a focal point and creates a pleasant contrast between the wood paneling and the white fireplace. Notice that the paneling is extended to the ceiling. This creates a feeling of being enveloped by the space. There is a further sense of bringing nature indoors.
The use of green accents works well with the blue of the ocean. Green pops of color on the pillows and the palm contrast nicely with the natural surroundings and textiles. Black casings on the windows provide a bit of an architectural detail with the use of clean lines. It also breaks up the vast ocean and creates a pleasing design on the floor to ceilings windows.
Minimalist design plays up the natural surroundings and makes this space calm and relaxing. All of the clean lines work well together. There is plenty of natural light and open space. Natural elements can really be enjoyed here. There is no need for an excess of accessories or artwork. The natural surroundings are acting as a majestic work of art alone. Other pieces are not needed.
Notice the firebox is extended to the edge of the hearth. This falls right in rhythm with the natural horizon line, created by the ocean. Elongating this feature makes the design look like it is floating. This design creates a pleasing focal point for this minimalist contemporary space.
When you have a home in the middle of nature, the best thing to do is accentuate its natural beauty. There is less need for material things to fulfill the interior’s potential. Highlight the views outside whenever there is a pleasing view! Showing off an interesting backdrop will enhance the interior immensely.
