Like any design genre, coastal style can be defined in varying ways with each designer infusing their own core elements. A principal important to my aesthetic is to ensure that every home fosters a sense of belonging, in some way rooting the home it to its surrounding environment through indigenous materials or unique elements. Whether the design takes on a bolder approach or is inspired by nature, coastal homes share at least one comment thread that helps evoke a sense of warmth and calm that only the sea and sun can bring: stark whites, sandy neutrals, ocean hues and sky blues, shake exteriors, natural woods, relaxed decor, leafy greens, maritime infusion, open air living …….
What are some of your favorite coastal design elements?
