Vibrant colors are quite iconic to the coastal décor, they bring vitality, awaken the space and help the home feel sort of “vacation-like.” From vivid pinks that can be found in Hawaiian sand, daring greens that reflect off of palm trees and rich blues that bring that beautiful watery hues inspiration is not only endless, but it works exceptionally well to have a multitude of these colors and work them seamlessly everywhere you feel needs a bit of something extra.

Whoever said neutrals weren’t fun has never met a beach home in their life. An all-white room near the beach is always a blissful idea, but in order to prevent it from feeling flat, you want to add other neutrals that bring beauty and a sense of texture to the space. Work with hues of sand, browns, beige and off white.
Open up the Windows
Sheer curtains are a great way to add a window treatment that helps give the room an “open” aesthetic. Moreover, this helps you have an open feel to the room without taking away from your décor. They provide some sort of privacy while still having an airy and light quality to it.
Keep the Kitchen Open
The key to coastal décor is an open floor plan display; therefore, you want to keep the area open yet allow it to flow throughout. Ensure the room feels put together yet feels unique in its own manner.
Mix up the Patterns
Pattern is one of the greatest ways of bringing versatility and color to a room. The key is having a blend of them that come in the same color in order to have that cohesiveness that is grand and open all at once. Work within the color scheme to put together a decor that makes sense and has a charming aspect to it.
Bring on the Porch
One thing about coastal homes is how relaxing they feel from the very first moment you spot them. This will start from the very first time you step on their porch. With that being said, add a swinging bed or swing to make the porch feel put together yet calming.
Place your Seating
Uniquely Beach house traditionally require impromptu meetings which means the seating should be more laidback and less “heavy” consider having multiple accent chairs that bring extra seating and beauty to the room.
Take Comfort Outside
Instead of having traditional deck chairs go for a comfortable display instead. You want to ensure your display feels sort of like an extension to your living room, for that put together yet laidback aesthetic. Add cushions or even an accent table for an easy seating that simply- works!
If there’s one place in the home that tends to work extremely well with wallpaper is the powder room. Powder rooms allow décor to feel grand because of their smaller size. Therefore, adding a bold wallpaper is the perfect form of bringing appeal to the room in a big way. Go for a colorful piece that is welcoming yet coastal and fun.
