It’s no secret that themed decor isn’t really my thing… In Our video “10 Things that are Dating Your Home” Jack suggested something along the line of “ship out your signs and themed decor!” That video has 2.3million views, so I’m thinking there’s a chance you’ve seen it. Gulp. So, what’s the deal?! Why am I giving you tips on how to add a Coastal Vibe? Isn’t that a theme?
Well, it can be, but it can also be very subtle and chic. Every summer I crave a bit of coastal in my home! The sand, the sea air, the white linens, gorgeous rattan….I can’t get enough of these! Whether you live by the beach or in the heart of the country, these tips will help you create a summery, relaxing atmosphere… without looking overly themed or cheesy!
One of our favorite coastal-inspired pieces is a set of woven baskets. These versatile items can be both bohemian and luxurious, depending on how you style them. They are not only visually appealing but also practical for storage purposes. Whether you want to store blankets, toys, or other items, these baskets are a perfect addition to any home.
To add warmth and comfort to your space, invest in beautiful blankets. Look for materials like linen or cozy fabrics with coastal-inspired patterns and colors. Draping a blanket over the arm of your sofa or laying it on your bed instantly adds a coastal touch to the room.
Coral and Seashells:
For a touch of coastal elegance, incorporate coral or seashell accessories into your home decor. These pieces add a graphic and architectural element that instantly enhances the coastal vibe. Place them on nightstands, coffee tables, or bookshelves for a subtle yet impactful coastal touch.
Bring in Linen:
Transform your home into a summer sanctuary with the simple addition of linen curtains and napkins. The airy fabric and natural texture instantly infuse your space with a breezy vibe, evoking the essence of warm days and lazy afternoons spent in the sun.
Enhance your summer ambiance with delightful scents. Infuse your space with the invigorating aromas of beachy coconut, zesty citrus, and fresh-cut flowers. Let scented candles and diffusers transport you to sun-soaked shores.
