When designing a coastal home there are a few things I keep in mind.
- Textures: Mixing crisp fabrics such as linens with woven fabrics like sisal to give your rooms a three-dimensional feel. Using wood (beadboard walls, painted wood floors and tables), stone (fireplace surrounds, counters and floors) and glass (windows) are musts for coastal homes!
- Colors: What colors make you think of the coast? Blue, yellow, red? Or maybe all white or neutrals? I like blue and white!
- Feel: What do you want your home to say about you and the scenery? Do you want a casual home, a beach get away or a formal coastal cottage? Determining the vibe of a home is very important, you need to base your decisions on the feel you are going for!
- Budget: I think it is important to mix things up and hunt for a few items that really make your home unique and eclectic. Keep your budget in mind and spend your money wisely on key furniture pieces and hunt for deals on the little decor items (lamps, art, side tables etc.) that help to finish the home! This is true for all decorating projects not just coastal homes.
I love dreaming and someday I will have a coastal home of my own until then…I will keep my eye out for great ideas! I want my family to be surrounded by beauty, and that is my ultimate goal for my clients too.
