When you are contemplating decorating a new space or re-decorating an existing home, a coastal design can be a good choice. Regardless of whether or not you live in a coastal or beachy area, a space decorated in a coastal style will create an airy atmosphere for you to enjoy all year round.
Decorating a coastal home can be achieved by using furniture in a palette of light natural colors and materials that will provide your home with a fresh beachy look that is both aesthetically pleasing to the eye, and soothing to the mind.
While many coastal designs are in light hues, colors of the sea can be added by using art and accessories in shades of blue or green. A picture of a sandy beach with the tide lapping the shoreline would be a perfect fit in a coastal inspired area.
Lighting a home that is designed in a coastal style is an important part of the process. Casual fixtures incorporating glass and other natural materials work well and look great. A nautical antique ships lantern would add character while keeping the coastal style.
For more portable options, coastal table lamps and floor lamps are a great way to provide soft lighting. There are lots of lamps suitable for coastal spaces. Lamps that incorporate shells, anchors or sea life would keep within the coastal vibe. A table lamp in a color such as teal is a good way to add a punch of color to a coastal or beachy styled space.
Coastal Lamps are an excellent way to add lighting to a room. A lamp tucked in a corner beside a favorite reading chair can be functional and does not take up a lot of space.
Your favorite accent pieces can add a personal touch and be incorporated into your home design.
