Beach: Sun, sea and beach
as interior inspiration

Summer! For many of us, in an ideal world, that means sun and sea above all. The sea has fascinated us for hundreds of years. Adventurers, scientists, poets, architects and artists were inspired by it. And even today, designers and interior architects like to roam the beaches in search of inspiration.

The waves, the smell, the grains of sand between your toes, the wind. These are all elements that inspire creative people to bring that recognisable 'outdoor feeling of the sea' inside.

That laid-back beach atmosphere works timelessly in the living room or bedroom, with sandy brown, white or blue colours on the wall. Designers like the Belgian studio ‘Tsjilp’, for example. ‘Tsjilp’ likes to be inspired by the rhythm of the water and the surf.

Their colour palette often includes white, dark brown, light brown and beige. The shapes are minimalist, with hidden cupboards and straight lines. Everything is sleek and minimal. Beige tiles and walls are exactly the same colour as the grains of sand on a summer beach.

Ingeborg Muylle from Lakkerij Vergote in Roeselare understands this fascination perfectly: "It is precisely these kinds of elements that architects or building owners often put forward to put us on the right track. Washed-up driftwood is also very beautiful and interesting in its weathered state. Veneer is the perfect way to convey that kind of feeling. Veneer can be so easily worked, coloured or brushed and offers so many possibilities for creative interpretations and sources of inspiration such as sand and sea.”

Beach and sea-inspired interior creations are not only beautiful and atmospheric, they are also good for your body and mind. Combining natural materials with white or grey walls and accessories in pastel shades will give your interior that coveted 'Bali look’. Wood types that fit perfectly into this theme are natural larch, grey elm, and white ash. The light colours and the tangible natural elements also give your interior a spacious, peaceful feel, making you feel completely at home.
