Summer is in full swing, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring a little bit of the beach back home with us! There’s nothing quite like a beach escape, and it’s easier than you might think to recreate that same feeling in your very own home. From natural coral home decor to nautical inspired rugs and pillows, coastal decor is all about creating that same relaxing feeling of a beachside vacation with soft color palettes and subtle pops of texture. Whether you’re looking to refresh your beach home or an apartment, the best part of the coastal trend the ability to add as little or as much as you want to update or completely transform your space.

There’s more to the coastal decor trend than just seashells and nautical stripes. By choosing unique pieces with old world style and detail, you’ll create a space with character and a bit of coastal inspiration without the cliches of "seashell decor". Starting with rugs, you can set the tone for a space by introducing a coastal color palette. For a summer beach home or condo, the Arctic Jaipur Myrtle Rug from the Coastal Living Collection is the perfect way to embrace the nautical theme in toned down neutrals. Looking for a more playful rug? The Celestial Blue Jaipur Schooled Rug from Coastal Living Collection embodies the fun and fresh feeling of the coast with silhouetted fish in cool shades of blue and green. For a simple look, choose the Oyster Gray Jaipur Starfishing Rug from Coastal Living Collection for a neutral color palette with subtle starfish detailing.

Lighting is an easy interchangeable way to bring in hues of coastal blues, bieges, and greens reminiscent of the sand and waves. For a room needing a touch of deep ocean blue, choose the Currey & Company Lighting Jungli Table Lamp or the Currey & Company Lighting Raffine Table Lamp. Statement chandeliers are the perfect way to create a coastal themed room that is both modern and chic. Choose the Lowcountry Originals Shell Drum With Bottom Band Chandelier to bring vintage and modern styles together in one piece that sets a coastal tone.

Coastal-themed wall mirrors not only bring in a taste of the ocean, but also open your space making it appear larger.
