Are you looking for coastal decor and coastal decorating ideas? It’s easy to achieve a coastal aesthetic by incorporating a sandy palette, gentle hues of blues, and greens with whitewashed accents. Nothing says “coastal living” quite like an open living room, oversized sofas, nautical stripes, sea-inspired accents, and coastal decor such as ropes, sailboats, and seaside prints.
Rich, polished wood reminds us of a mighty ship’s hull and thickly woven jute, high luster finishes, and crisp linen pair well with a range of oceanic hues and stormy greys. Navy and white are the backbone of a sailing-inspired look. You can tone down the nautical theme by incorporating pillows in modern prints and creamy neutrals instead of stark whites, as shown in the featured image above (designed by Muskoka Living Interiors designer Cory DeFrancisco). Create your own breezy and effortless chic space with these coastal-inspired finds.
Shop by design style: Bohemian, Farmhouse, Modern Glam, French Country, Modern Rustic, Scandinavian, Tonal Chic, or Urban Earthy.
