Where: Newcastle, Australia

Why we love this pic: Blonde wood and rattan never fail to infuse spaces with a cheerful, beachy vibe and when paired with rich, velvety blue like this, the result is simply stunning. The contrasting combination brings ample dimension to the look, while whitewashed walls elevate its breezy vibe to even greater heights.

The takeaway: Pair rattan with rich hues to create a dynamic design.
