There are few activities in life as relaxing and invigorating as a week by the sea. Between the fresh breeze, sun-kissed cheeks and melodic waves crashing at your feet, the coastline creates an inner peace that can’t be beat. But as the saying goes, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em with coastal interior design.
Coastal design requires strategic, sea-inspired decor and the selection of natural materials. Bring the magic of the sea into your home with classic coastal tones, airy textiles and local treasures like driftwood, shells or woven rattan. When all the pieces fit together, it feels like you’ve booked a one-way ticket to paradise.

Coastal kitchen + dining room decor
Bring a fresh coastal style to your kitchen or dining room with a pinch of driftwood, a dash of rattan and a healthy dose of blue and white. A sure way to add coastal flair to your kitchen or dining room is with beach-style home accessories and serveware.
Place sun-bleached woven placemats on top of your white linen tablecloth to give it extra texture and warmth. Choose vessels made from matte white ceramic, light wood, or pastel sea glass to create centerpieces or take advantage of countertop utensil storage.
And finally, make sure to add some friendly faces to your decorating arsenal. Our pick? The sparkling whale plates in aqua and navy blue or the chic mother-of-pearl fish bottle opener.
