3. Add some subtle coastal accessories such as driftwood, boats birds and shells. Beach combing is a great and fun way to gather together pieces of the coast. Keep it subtle - do not go overboard on the beach or coastal theme, this will appear tacky. Subtle pieces like signs or small beach themed accessories such as a small yacht, pieces of rope, or coastal home style lantern will be enough


4. Don't overcrowd the coastal home, if you are tight of space used smaller furniture pieces with lots of extra storage.

5. Brighten up darker corners with a table lamp. Allow Plenty of Light into your room - Adding white furniture to your room will instantly increase the amount of light reflected through the room creating an illusion of a great and airy space

A perfect affordable and stylish narrow hallway table

A perfect affordable and stylish narrow hallway table from The White Lighthouse
At The White Lighthouse we know space is at a premium in most homes and with hallways generally being long and narrow are often the hardest to decorate and furnish so we have sourced the Newport French Grey and Colonial White half moon tables.  

A great idea when space is at a premium in your hallway, entryway or living room. The shape of table, at 30 cm deep, does not protrude into the space of the room as much as a more regular rectangle table making it a very popular choice when decorating narrow and small hallway spaces.

The table is a centre piece to the room allowing you to create a master piece of decor using home decor accessories, lamps or photographs.
