coastal chic


Brighter and longer days are coming!

Whether you live in the city or the country, "Coastal Chic" suits any decor and says, summer!

By simply adding nautical pillows for the season, or placing seashells on your coffee table, you can give a knod to wonderful summer getaways at the coast or lake. Lakeside or coastal decor represents a carefree lifestyle of waterside living. To me, COASTAL CHIC = SUMMER !

This month we are going to have fun talking about tasteful, sophisticated, "Coastal Chic".

Sand, water & seashells, the perfect color palette for any Coastal Chic home!

Coastal decor represents a casual, carefree lifestyle!

Imagine wearing flip flops, shorts, your hair a little messy from the ocean breeze. Fresh seafood from the local farmers market. Comfy furniture, family keepsakes around, shells on windowsills from evening walks along the beach, the smell of campfires wafting in the air from beach goers bundled on the beach as the sun goes down.

That's the Coastal Chic aesthetic!


The bathroom is the perfect space to incorporate Coastal Chic design, and it can be tasteful!

These coral shelves can hold shells or beautiful spa products in any bathroom.


What says summer more than seaglass?

You can find these frosty fragments of glass on beaches everywhere!

A shell centerpiece certainly makes a summer statement! You can find faux giant clam shell in big box stores and online. The sea floats just add that fresh, cool, summer feel!


Driftwood is the perfect Coastal Chic accent! Organic, sun weathered, found washed ashore.

You can shop for driftwood accessories at any big box store or make your own!
