HOME FEATURE: Meet the Caroline

If you want your home to have understated style and oodles of natural light so you feel like you’re on holiday all year round, this could be the style for you. More relaxed than a traditional Cape Cod or Hamptons house, our Papamoa Caroline plan is coastal chic which has a charm that is uniquely Kiwi.

Details to consider:

  • Weatherboard exterior cladding in white, grey or blue
  • Gable roof
  • Raked interior ceilings
  • Open-plan spaces
  • White, grey or cool blue interior walls combined with natural details such as wood and stone
  • Bespoke or repurposed elements that give character
  • Paneling detail on walls, kitchen cupboards, and interior doors
  • Natural handmade textures such as rattan and linen.
  • Plantation shutters or airy, draped curtains
  • Skylights
  • Pendants or chandeliers that blend in rather than drawing the eye

Coastal chic flat lays by Jacqui at Twill Design

Flat lays are all over the internet, and they're a great interior design tool. When creating each room, you and your Signature colour consultant will pull together colours and textures to create a mood board. The flat lay is a photograph you can take of your mood board taken from above, to capture the essence of the room.

“When pulling together a scheme, balance is king! It’s a constant process of viewing the colours and textures objectively and visualising them en-masse. Imagine viewing the space from all angles and in different lights. A favourite saying of mine is “Good Design is Invisible”- Jacqui Mitchell, Twill Interiors.

The key architectural feature of a Coastal Chic home is airy, open rooms with lots of natural light and an easy flow between indoor and outdoor spaces.
