Coastal Design

Updated: May 4, 2023

"Coastal" can encompass a wide range of aesthetics, ranging from modern glam to country cottage but one unifying factor unites them all, a breezy space that's evocative of the beach.

So how do you create this popular style? Whether you lean modern/contemporary, or more shabby chic, the following items will help create the perfect coastal space.

Ocean Themed Wall Art

Nothing is more reminiscent of the beach than wall art that depicts it.

Wicker/Rattan Furniture

Add wicker and rattan pieces and be instantly transported to a tropical night on a cozy lanai with cool ocean breezes.

Decorative Objects

Sprinkle decorative objects throughout a space to transform it into a coastal retreat.


Add lighting with coastal touches such as rope detail, watery blue ceramics, or woven shades.


Create a lush paradise by adding real or artificial greenery.


Decorative pillows are a great way to tie a style and space together.


Finish a coastal space with natural textures such as a jute rug and linen sheers.
