The ultimate in laid-back style, West Coast Modern is all about eclectic minimalism. We can’t get enough of the relaxed casual charm. Here’s how you can bring the look home, too!

Tip #1: EMBRACE A BRIGHT IDEA

If you fall in love with an eye-popping statement sofa, don’t talk yourself into a “safer” colour. Build a neutral base around your look-at-me piece so it can really shine.

Tip #2: GO WITH THE GRAIN

Wood is a major element in West Coast style. Mix and match yours with confidence: coarse, heavily grained wood; smooth and refined polished wood; painted and antiqued wood – it’s all good!

Tip #3: TAKE A SEAT

West Coast style is anything but fussy. This mid-century modern chair works equally well in the living or dining areas of an open plan space. With its relaxed contour, armrests and leather upholstery, it’s practically an armchair – only smaller and more versatile.

Tip #4: KEEP IT LIGHT AND BREEZY

This contemporary dining set relies on its tall, tapered legs and sculpted contours to make its design statement. By staying within the dining room’s neutral colour scheme, it doesn’t steal any thunder from the coral statement sofa on the other side of the room.
