Off the Coast, also known as Coastal Chic, is known for being a style focused on relaxation and comfort with bright and open rooms. Originally known for being present at beach houses, this home decor design has since become a trend to bring this style into many homes, even if they are nowhere near the water. Follow the tips below to see how you can bring look and feel of summer into your home.
The Color Schemes:
The best way to achieve the Off the Coast look is to focus on having main colors of white and shades of blue. These colors are inspired by the sand and water found at the beach. Once your main colors are set, you can mix in some bright vibrant colors with your furniture and accessories. This Coral Pink and Off-White Square Throw Pillow is a great way to add a pop of color to your decor.
You wouldn’t want carpeted floors at a beach house because of all the sand that would be coming in from foot traffic. Instead, opt to keep your floor bare with wood or tiles and add in a colorful or faded rug or two like this Striped Blue, Beige and Mocha Hand Loomed Throw Rug.
Add in Some Weathered Pieces:
To get the true spirit of the beach, you’ll want to bring some of the outdoors inside, so be sure to add in a few weathered pieces to the mix. For example, this Coastal Shell Patterned Ottoman looks as though it has been aged by water, wind and sand.
Bring the Outdoor Furniture Inside:
It may seem like an odd idea, but a lot of outdoor water resistant furniture is designed with a coastal beach charm to it. These days, outdoor furniture is just as comfortable as indoor furniture. Think about bringing in some wicker furniture or this Natural Teak Patio Lounge Chair with Navy Cushions.
Make Sure Your Home Looks Livable:
You don’t want your home looking like a museum! Adding some decor with natural imperfections can give off a relaxed atmosphere that puts people at ease. The dripping paint of this Active Glaze Ceramic Table Lamp presents a perfectly imperfect look that is perfect for adding a sense of comfort to a room.
