Coastal Christmas Style Simplified

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! If you’re not already excited for the beginning of another festive season, scroll on to be enticed by our latest Christmas shoot. We challenge you not to be dreaming of sugar plums by the end of this page. Shot at the home of The Beach Furniture’s founders, this year’s shoot features their gorgeous daughter Lulu. We’re so excited to share these images with you.

Our range of elegant furniture and accessories come together perfectly to craft the perfect coastal-inspired Christmas in your home. All our Christmas decorations are exclusive to our Bundall and Burleigh showrooms, but virtually everything else you see (except the Christmas tree!) is available in our stores and online.

Keep your decorations simple and your colour palette classic with silver and gold. The colour scheme will never date, but it’ll also effortlessly complement your existing living room – no need for Christmas to compete with your Coastal style. What’s more, if you have a small collection of carefully curated sentimental ornaments (think baby’s first Christmas or that one you picked up on holiday in London) they’ll perfectly pop, giving them the attention they deserve.

There is no easier way to add instant elegance to a table setting than with a spray of flowers or luscious foliage. This year’s seen flowers take a backseat while eucalpts and tropical foilage becomes the new in-thing. (Interiors obsession with palm print never went away, it just evolved to encompass all manner of things green.) We’re blessed to have so much gorgeous Native Australian foilage at our fingertips – add a generous amount to your Christmas table either in vases in or laid along the surface of your table. Talking of which, our Clerissa table (pictured) is the perfect treat for your dining room this year. It’s ample size will fit the entire family and combined with our cafe chairs is a style classic that’ll hang around (maybe even till next Christmas!)

We know that Christmas Day entertaining can seem like a marathon, but it’s made so much easier when you can just retire to the verandah after lunch and have fun with your family. Our top tip for Christmas is to ask your guests to bring a favourite cheese or charcuterie treat so that you can easily cater for late afternoon nibbles – that way your job is (almost) done after lunch has been served. The gorgeous natural wood of our Hampton dining table makes a statement so you need little more than your delicious afternoon treats and maybe a few candles to set the mood. What’s more, our Columbus Dining Chairs are generously proportioned, incredibly comfy and with the arms – they’re perfect for leaning back and spending the afternoon in.

Hampton Dining Table – $2699-$3099, Columbus Dining Chairs (with arms) – $329 each , White Christmas Tree Decorations – from $95 – available only in store, Natural Christmas Tree Decorations – from $39 – available only in store, White Reindeer – available only in store. Table linens, serving platters and dishes – all stylists own.
