A coastal gallery wall is a creatively arranged coastal-themed display of paintings, wall art, photographs, mirrors and/or clocks. Gallery walls have become very popular over the last decade and are a wonderful way to update a room! A well arranged wall can transform plain rooms and instantly bring personality and panache to your home. Create your own Coastal Gallery Wall with tips from our decorating experts at Cottage and Bungalow!

Creating a Coastal Gallery Wall

Step 1: Let the waves hit your feet, and the sand be your seat

Tropical Teal Mermaid Sculpture

We’re here to create a Coastal Gallery Wall so we have to start with thinking about the beach! Begin by collecting all your favorite coastal wall art – whether it’s a photograph of your footsteps on the sand or a painting of a gorgeous sunset. Make sure to select happy memories from your times at the beach with family and friends. Experiment with different types of wall art like Coastal Painted Fence Fish or Mermaid Wall Sculptures. Designer tip: Get quirky – how about some personalized flip flop wall art?

Step 2: Color me happy!

Weathered Deep Sea Anchor Table Lamp

Coastal color themes can vary but often include shades of blue and green. Consider bringing these shades into your collection in combination with grays and beiges. Look for eclectic frames and wall art in these shades, some rustic, some contemporary. Have you looked at what else is in the room? Lamps like this Weathered Deep Sea Anchored Table Lamp and rugs like the Boardwalk Ivory Coral Rug with similar color and themes can bring the room together. Designer tip: Consider adding mirrors – they can add variety and make the room look bigger!
