I’ve always loved the beach having grown up close to the Long Island Sound and spending all my childhood summers there. It’s no wonder that my home reflects my love of water and the beach. I now live close to the Pacific Ocean and my love of Coastal design continues and I’m not alone! Coastal design is very popular and I have many clients asking for that “vibe”.
My interpretation of Coastal Design includes lots of neutrals and whites with pops of blues and greens. I like to incorporate natural materials, wood tables with light finishes, woven wood materials for window treatments, benches, rugs and accessories, comfy sofas and chairs in light colored fabrics and textured area rugs. A cool idea is using grasscloth wallpaper for an accent wall to add texture and interest. And of course artwork that brings more color into the space and defines the style.
Have fun with this cool, timeless trend. Your rooms will have a comfortable, relaxed feeling like being on vacation at your favorite beach resort. Here are some examples of the Coastal vibe. Call us to help you get the feeling for your home.
