If there’s one shade that is consistently used in any classic coastal style design it is White. From white linens and upholstery, to cabinets, shelving and area rugs, white accessories and accents help to create the light and airy energy that coastal homes are known for.
Use White Beach Decor to Enhance Classic Coastal Style
There are a few tricks of the trade when it comes to decorating with a white color palette. The first is knowing which white to choose. Whites with pink undertones will create a warmer vibe while blue-whites are more frequently used for cool and modern designs. Also, if you have a younger family and/or furniture-friendly pets, slip covers are always a good idea.
The following are examples of white furniture and furnishings to enhance coastal-inspired decor styles:
Grand English Farmhouse. There isn’t a more versatile piece of furniture than an armoire. It’s ideal in any bedroom, works as an entertainment center for a living room or office space, or can be used as a china cabinet in your kitchen or dining room.
Patterned Accent Pillows. Accent pillows with white backgrounds and neutral patterns, like Peonies in Pearl Grey or Greek Key Silver Embroidered pillow, add a little something extra to your mostly-white decor.
White Framed Mirrors. A white-framed mirror packs a powerful punch. Not only does the white frame create a sense of spaciousness, the reflective surface of the mirror will double your perspective.
