    Pastel colours are such a great way to boost the 'Beach theme' and the contrasting decor really makes the whole thing come to life. Love this styling.

    These colours are a great coastal fit, not matter what the style of home is. If you're feeling a little uneasy about this green try Dulux Spanish Olive which is slightly more greyish but around the same tonal value. This can be ordered in an A4 sample via the dulux website. Good luck with your project!

How do I protect door handles, trims and plants when I’m painting?May advises:Tape up or temporarily remove door hardware, exterior lights, ceiling fan blades and power point covers with quality painter’s masking tape before you paint. Also tape up areas that can be tricky to paint around, such as trims, windows and doors.King adds:Protect plants and the ground near the walls you’re going to paint with plastic or canvas drop cloths.It’s important to protect yourself too when painting your exterior, adds King: If a step ladder is required, ensure it’s placed on level ground and that you have someone on the ground to hold the ladder steady. Or, rather than using a ladder to paint upper sections of a wall, consider using an extendable roller pole instead.

Get the lookIf you’re translating this look to the home, it’s best suited to a waterside property. This home uses a more subtle mint paint colour by Dulux for the exterior, coupled with beach decor – including colourful buoys, a surfboard and a striped deck chair.

Robin Braithwaite added this to Get the Easy, Breezy, Aussie Beach House Look1 Nov 2015

Colour it beachyAussie beach house colours are usually muted, natural shades of soft grey, sandy yellow, bleached white, pastel green and dusty blue, reflecting their coastal surrounds. Think of the ocean, dune grasses, sun and sand; these should be your inspiration. Adding chalky white details to windows, doors, pergolas and eaves brings a beachy softness to the exterior of a house. Bring in stronger accent colours with beach towels, pot plants, chairs and even a surfboard.TIP: Test your colour selection. What looks good on a paint swatch at the local hardware store may look completely different under the harsh Australian sun. Find a large patch of exterior or interior wall to test your colours and view them over several days under different lighting conditions.

This gives an idea of an overhang over the front door with the bump-out right next to it.

Door could look good on 39 John st. like the pale green with the white trim but might not go with our roof.
