High Tide for Coastal Design

For a more refined take on this look, you can capture a coastal New England feel with darker navy hues and crisper whites with less destressing.
Since coastal style is so versatile, it's easy to make it your own. Try putting a fresh twist on this tried-and-true look using modern furniture and graphic prints.
White painted wood is a perfect fit, especially if it's whitewashed or distressed. Two-toned tables are also a great choice, since they blend stained and painted finishes.
Linen, cotton and similar-looking fabrics are ideal for coastal's breezy look. You can't go wrong with slipcovers, whether it's on your sofa or your dining chairs.
More than just spreading seashells around your room, coastal style is a state of mind. It should be simple, laid back and relaxing—so it's best to scale back on the knickknacks.

The Colors

Since water is central to this look, it's only natural that its cool hues be the staple of a coastal palette. With watery blues and greens complemented by sandy brown, bright neutrals and natural wood tones, this color scheme has all the makings of your favorite beach.
