The Summer is Here! Go Coastal!

Whether you live by the beach or have fond memories of oceanside vacations, the sea holds a special place in your heart. After all, there’s nothing like lounging in the sun, sinking your feet into the hot sand, and breathing in wafts of salt water. Some find it relaxing, some even find it healing.

Wouldn’t you love to be able to bring the coast inside and transform your home? Well, now that summer is here, you can! If you decorate accordingly, you can style your interior décor to transport you to the place that gives you a peaceful easy feeling.

What is Coastal Style?

Coastal style décor is a decorating theme that is inspired by weathered furniture and sailing-related accents found in traditional beach homes. The design consists of pale finishes, various shades of blue, and maritime accents such as compasses, anchors, marine life, helms, and sailboats. The furniture material usually includes details of stones and natural driftwood. Crisp, coastal homes are welcoming and strike a balance between classy and casual.

As for the palette, coastal décor colors take their inspiration from the beach. Think:

  • sea foam green

  • ocean blue

  • driftwood grey

  • cream

  • sandy brown

Want to add a unique touch? Play with a contrasting color not traditionally used in coastal design. For example, touches of crimson can be used to create a tailored, preppy vibe, or bits of coral can offset the softer tones with a nice pop of color!

How to Style Your Home for the Perfect Coastal Summer Look

Summer lends itself to thoughts of the outdoors and if you're partial, the beach. The coastal design really brings the vibe of a perfect beach day into your home. Whether you simply want to style a cream-colored couch with some starfish throw pillows or completely redecorate your bedroom with coastal pieces, there are many ways to make your home feel like a resort for you and your guests.

Styling a coastal look is easier than you might think. While there are many options to choose from, we break it down to how you can customize each room in your home to make you and your guests feel relaxed and refreshed.

A Coastal Living Room

Think of your beach-themed living room as the introduction to your lovely seaside-inspired retreat; the figurative lobby of the beachside resort you’d like to recreate.

Some key elements of a coastal living room to incorporate are soft couches, poufs, throw pillows, and other comfortable furnishings to invite pleasant conversations. The living room is also the best place to include accent chairs as conversation pieces.

The Coastal Splashes Accent Chair by Barclay Butera is a perfect piece to add that seaside vibe to a room, featuring a smooth wood finish and classic white and blue cushions.

Another conversation piece to bring the coastal outdoors inside is the Surfrider Coastal Console Table by Hooker Furniture, illustrative of sun-bleached driftwood and a stone veneer top inspired by seaside rock formations.

A Coastal Bedroom

In any coastal home, the bedroom should be the ultimate oasis.After a long day of work or spending time with friends, falling into bed could be the best ending to a day you could ask for. The Coastal Surfside Panel Bed by Universal is there for you to cuddle into at the end of the day and wake up bright and fresh to start a new one! Its soft curves, wide wood paneling, and Sandbar finish instill a sense of nature and embody chicness.

A Coastal Dining Room

Whether it’s for morning coffee or a lively family dinner, the dining room should have some natural and brisk elements tied together with pieces that are simple and structured. The Theodore Alexander Breeze Pine Slatted Table is great for creating a calm yet luxurious dining experience. It features a distressed driftwood finish, a suitable length for larger dinner parties, and comfortable chairs with attractive nailhead trim and diamond-motif backs. This is a great set for hosting beach-themed and holiday parties.
