Work on natural textures
When you have decided to give your home the makeover of a sun kissed hub, work on the natural textures more, so that the typical coastal summer look is felt everywhere. Replace your furniture and fixtures with the ones that are made from wicker, sea grass and rattan. The knitted structure of these materials imparts a natural hand sewn look that will comply best with your theme. Raw wood look should also predominate in the whole affair. Hence, replace the contemporary species with raw wood structures that look unpolished and natural.
Upholstery needs the look
Work further on the upholstery and drapery. Instead of heading for the sophisticated silky fabrics, shop for the jute cotton or pure cotton varieties that bear bold tones. You can work further on your creations by bleaching the colors of the upholstery and sun drying them so that they develop sun kissed look. The color pallet of upholstery is of equal importance too. So, get hold of the primary color palette that comprise of tones such as sand, yellow, orange, rust, etc. Solid color is the perennial choice for such a look.
