When it comes to coastal interiors, there are several mainstays of design that have continued to be relevant for many years. Weathered woods, durable fabrics, and natural materials remain at the heart of coastal style. Color palettes often pull from sand, shells, sea, and sky with a myriad of cool blues and greens. Drawing from the simplicity of the ocean, white is often the key to a beach palette. But Bobby Huber, Jr. of Oskar Huber Furniture & Design believes there may be more exciting design elements to explore.
“Coastal interiors are about evoking a feeling of carefree relaxation, comfort, and, most importantly, having fun. So why not have fun while decorating your seaside home?” says Bobby. He encourages clients to venture outside the traditional coastal color palettes. “Blue, green, and beige make for beautiful coastal space—no doubt about that,” says Bobby, “But those colors aren’t for everyone. And that’s perfectly fine!” Bobby and his design team have the expertise to create coastal looks that are different than what you expect. They’ve put together some unconventional coastal color palettes to inspire your inner interior designer.
