Breathe New Life Into Your Home With Elegant Coastal Decor

Kick back and relax, because you’re home. Unwind from the day’s stress, kick your shoes off, and fall back into your favorite sofa as you let your mind and body unwind. Looking around your home you’ve made every selection of furniture, picked out every bit of decor, and decided on each paint color. You love it, but you also know you could use a bit of an upgrade. It’s the one thing that lingers in the back of your head as you unwind. Well, there’s no time like the present to fully beautify your house and breathe new life in with elegant coastal decor. Here are four key elements to consider.

Elements of Elegant Coastal Decor

Bring In The Natural Wood

There’s something truly beautiful about the sun bleached wood you find out on the beach. The natural bleaching almost adds a layer of sophistication and beauty to the wood. If you want to easily add in a touch of elegant coastal decor this is an easy way to elevate while keeping your space grounded.

There are a number of ways you can go about doing this. You can go the distance and add this natural, sun bleached look to the ceiling, or you can add smaller decor elements to your home with the furniture, baskets, and other items. It all depends on how subtle you want to go with it.

Go Minimal But Go Bold

If you’re a minimalist you already enjoy your space. You don’t like clutter and you like the fresh space that comes with avoiding too many trinkets and odds and ends. However, just because you’re going minimal doesn’t mean you need to go boring. In fact, if you’re going to go minimal you need something bold to be included within a room. This might be an exceptional light fixture that instantly draws the attention of visitors to the home. When you build the room around your one bold piece you’ll have a space that’s cohesive and exciting.

Combine Materials

We love wicker and rattan which are both common materials used in coastal designs. However, don’t just let the these materials stand on their own, when combined with other raw and organic materials they can really exude that elegant look you’re going for. Consider offsetting wicker or rattan with soft textiles, and balancing it out with bold accent pieces that could include wrought iron or other metals.

There is no shortage of elegant coastal decor options when the ocean is your inspiration. One favorite design to consider though is adding the colors of the sea to any room in a home. Whether it is a an ocean blue quilt, sea-blue throw rug, a mural hanging from a white wall, or decorative pillows, the inclusion of this ocean blue will bring a sense of calm to the space.
