If you love the beach and feel a sense of peace surrounded by its natural beauty, coastal design may be the best thing for your space. You can be as fun or sophisticated as you want with this style, and the best part is it allows for touches that reflect your personality.
What are the elements of coastal design? Check these out:
You don’t have to live by the ocean to have a coastal room, but you cannot have a coastal design in a dark, lifeless, closed-off space. In order for this design to work, you need lots of natural light, windows, and preferably space. Not only do they evoke the fun of the beach, but adding this to any space might help you relax.
Materials for this style tend to evoke the beach. Twine, wicker, wood, and canvas are all great. Fibrous, woven material makes it feel natural. The rawness and roughness of these also add nice texture.
What makes this design fun is your ability to go for bold, bright colors. Turquoise, robin’s egg, coral, yellow, white, beige, and tan work well. Think colors that evoke the ocean, sand, sailboats, or seashells.
Find Your Style
Coastal design allows a lot of variety. You can be as on-the-nose as having an anchor on your wall or a surf board mounted to your ceiling, but you can also subtly hint at these elements in your patterns, color scheme, and focal points. There are also different types of coastal, including modern, traditional, tropical, Mediterranean, and more. Find out about the types of coastal design here.
