As we get into the dog days of summer (hello August!), relaxing in a beautiful beach house sounds just about perfect. The serenity and simplicity of the neutral color palette, clean lines, and oceanside vibes are enough to lull you into a summer trance. Coastal interiors are perfect for curing any of your summer blues, no matter the season. And whether you live by the shore or thousands of miles away, we are sharing some of the best images to help you create that same soothing seaside energy in your own space!
There are lots of ways to make the coastal design trend your own, and it doesn’t have to mean a kitschy style with seaside trinkets galore. It can transform your room into a simplistically elegant oasis with a natural color palette, different textures, and modern accents.
For a calming, coastal-chic space, start with a neutral base for a color palette, with muted and pastel tones like tans, off-whites, and soft grays & blues. Taking a minimalist approach with furniture & decor and mixing some traditional pieces with modern accents can give you the perfect balance of a relaxing, sleek space. And incorporating imagery of sand, sea, and sky is an easy way to elevate your space to make it contemporary and inviting. We love how a beautiful shore painting transports you to the peaceful waves!
But a coastal style doesn’t always have to mean complete tranquility. Fun and beachy vibes can be perfect for a kid’s room, bathroom, or any space you want to bring some more energy to. By adding brighter and bigger pops of coastal-inspired color, such as aqua, coral, or deeper blues, to a mostly-neutral space, you can liven up a room while keeping the coastal inspiration. Hanging imagery of cute sea creatures, shells, and beach life, will bring the fun of the beach to your space without tracking in any of the sand!
No matter how you choose to incorporate some coastal vibes into your design, we hope this artwork helps bring you a little closer to the shore!
