Designer colour scheme: Oceanic Bay

Since Below Deck’s season 8 wrapped up filming, our dreams of sailing the Caribbean have been placed on hold. So naturally, we couldn’t help but ‘sea’se the opportunity to introduce our coastal design palette, Oceanic Bay. Ok, we’ll gladly admit our WA beaches are actually much nicer than the beaches featured in any season of Below Deck, so it’s little wonder that Oceanic Bay (not to be confused with Hamptons) is a total firm fave with homebuyers of all ages. Ready to sail the seas of the Oceanic Bay palette?

Unlike the bumpy ride and cabin drama of Below Deck, the Oceanic Bay home design vibe offers a sense of relaxation with its soothing colours and styles. Picture it like an enjoyable, relaxing coastal charter managed by reliable and conscientious Kate Chastain; with six seasons of Below Deck behind her, she’s a seasoned pro and a true queen of the ocean.

Exterior palette: cool, calm & collected

One of the standout features of the coastal design is creating an immediate reflection of sand and sea and creating opportunities for abundant natural light to stream through the home. In addition, the coastal colour combination has feel-good energy- everything should feel light and airy, almost like that of a minimalist design. The beautiful blue-grey front door evokes a clear blue sky and refreshing body of water, and our Sandy Facebrick feature brick wall in classic cream brings an earthy warmth of soft, warm sand transporting you back to summer days spent along our serene Indian ocean. The remaining colour palette balances light and dark greys in Colorbond Ironstone and Shale Grey to allow the feature wall and front door to get the attention they deserve. Sounds refreshing, doesn’t it?

Captain Lee is a tough nut to crack, and you don’t want to be on his bad side. Thankfully for you, our coastal palette design is comfortable, laid-back and easy going, and only has good sides. The exterior side of this design palette features Habitat roof tiles in Oceanic, designed to be a classic reflection of our iconic coastline, with a deep, rich textured tone that completes the laid-back picture.

Interior palette: easy, breezy, beautiful…

The coastal calm and easy-breezy vibe can then be further built on throughout the home’s interior with these coastal interior collections of earthy tones, jute textures, crisp whites, stripes and loose linen upholstery. Note, in contrast to a polished interior, the Oceanic Bay home should feel totally natural and raw.

Enjoy a day on our beautiful coastline and retire in your coastal abode at the end of the day (and no unlike Below Deck, you won’t get fired for sleeping in the quest quarters). In fact, a season of Below Deck from your soft, linen-upholstered couch in your airy, open plan living room is the perfect way to wind down. Because, let’s face it, yachting on the high seas in a multimillion-dollar boat chartered by insanely wealthy guests will always make great TV. Overall, tranquillity and simplicity are at the helm of this interior style.

Build your own yacht:

1. The Olive et Oriel Antibes May III 1972 print is reminiscent of the famous coastal french riviera and brings warmth and character with its vibrant pop of colour. Your home will feel like an island paradise.

2. The hand-braided Rattan pendant light By Ferm Living Kids is the perfect coastal addition to your little one’s room.

3. The Lohals flatwoven, natural rug by Ikea is made with durable and recyclable Jute and will bring an element of warmth to your easy breezy space.

4. These terracotta striped pillowcases via The Sheets Society have earthy appeal. You’ll be reminiscing on your trip to the Amalfi in no time.

5. With its European flange trim, feather-filled cushions and deep-seated style, Temple & Webster’s Cumulus Cotton Slipcover armchair is a delightfully plush addition to any coastal lounge.

6. Don’t be afraid to mix timbers in an Oceanic Bay interior. In fact doing so, creates a more natural, less contrived feel. This Ward recycled teak bench via Pillow Talk topped with an array of scattered cushions will create a cosy coastal nook.

7. Temple & Webster’s White Scorpio Vase with large handles will bring a sculptural element to your living room. Pair with a bunch of pampas grass, and you’ve got a charter approved lewk.

8. With its acacia timber frame and gorge wicker, The Marley occasional chair by Early settler provides the ultimate way to laze your summer days away.


There are so many reasons why our Oceanic collection is the perfect way to bring a touch of the coast to your home – and even more reasons to find out how you can bring this style to life in your portal.
