Coastal Decorating Ideas

Guest Post

We love long summer days along the coast and felt inspired to write about coastal decorating ideas that you can bring into your home to enjoy year round.  Enjoy!

Loads of white and soft blues make us dream of the coast.  Natural materials like jute, sisal and linens are made for coastal decor.









Beachy doesn’t just mean casual. This sophisticated dining room has a subtle coastal decor with a capiz shell chandelier, framed shell prints and shell covered balls on the table, as well as a sea blue wall color. Gorgeous!













Nothing says coastal decor like shells.  Be creative with how you display these seaside artifacts—I love the shell garland.













A giant clam shell adds a touch of coastal flair to this beautiful bathroom. Simple touches like this can make any of your bath feel a bit more coastal.













Subtle coastal nods, like coral patterned fabric on the stools, add just the right touch of seaside to this sophisticated bedroom.  The combination of blue and coral is classic.













Nautical maps in cobalt blue set the stage for the coastal decor in this living room. Natural woven side chairs bring interest to the mostly blue and white decor.














Along with the model sailboat and crisp black and white stripes add a nautical feeling to this room. Not every coastal decor must be blue and white. If you’re looking for out of the ordinary coastal decorating ideas this space just might be a source of inspiration.











Casual coastal decor invites you to settle in and relax. This living room has many coastal touches but all blend seamless into the decor.
