Unlike coastal decor of old, modern coastal interior design is both simple and elegant. It starts with a color pallete borrowed from nature; tans, whites and beige. Add a pop of coastal color such as blue, aquamarine, or coral and you have a relaxing color scheme.
Keep furniture simple and well spaced avoiding excess furniture and accessories. Add some texture for visual appeal. Scattered pillows and blankets create an inviting coastal decor that is both comfortable and relaxing.
The ultimate aim should be to create a place where you want to spend time and feel like you are on vacation.
- A defining element of coastal design is its calming ambiance, which can be created by choosing muted neutral shades of color with pastel accents
- When it comes to layout, minimalism and sleek, modern simplicity work best for coastal design interiors, so the furniture should be the focus of each room
- To pull the look together, include a variety of textures and combine them in unique ways, but also be sure to include soft elements in order to create a cozy feeling
“These days, modern coastal design is bringing understated comfort into the 21st century.”
