Coastal Chic

The Coastal Chic theme channels a contemporary seaside aesthetic. One of the most attractive interior design styles of today, this look contains clean lines and garners more of a minimalistic vibe to promote a beachy, yet well-kept, setting in one’s home. Pops of organic elements such as live edge wood furniture and rustic metal fixtures keep the appearance from becoming too edgy or cold without forfeiting the sleek design. The palette for this type of theme tends to be full of cool crisp neutrals, navy and charcoal, which then tend to be softened up by sophisticated pieces of driftwood, nautical prints, coral, shells and colored glass. 

Coastal Cottage

The Coastal Cottage theme is optimal for capturing that relaxed, easy-going vibe within your home. Classically “American Coastal,” its façade is a collection of cozy and inviting pieces that reflect the laid-back way of life near the sea. The key decorative element is the sun-bleached hues, which often times are applied as shiplap wall finishes or as white washed wainscoting or beadboard along the ceilings, as well as washed-out ground features including furniture and slipcovers. The strong incorporation of natural textures such as linen, cotton, jute, rattan and grasscloth are an integral part of the coastal cottage feel, as the addition of these shabby-chic distressed elements results in an effortless, windswept look we know from seaside huts and cottages of vacations past. Its best to focus on a soft ocean-evoking palette of light blue, grey, green and khaki to tie together this theme.

Colorful Costal

By adding bold pops of color to create a playful twist on a classic beach style. Colorful Coastal is the perfect way to ensure the interior of a home lives up to the often-larger-than-life exterior views of the water. With a color palette of bright blue, coral and citrus hues paired with crisp white, it’s impossible to not to feel uplifted the minute you enter this bright beachy home. Decorating along this theme inspires  homeowners to use typical beach decor in thoughtful, intentional doses, by means of colorful abstract art and bright, striking accents. This is the perfect opportunity to incorporate whimsical patterns and motifs, all inspired by brighter oceanic elements such as the deep vivid green of seaweed or vibrant red of coral, and of course, the dazzling blue hues of the sea.
