Coastal Décor

How to Add Coastal Style to Your Home

Browse coastal décor at Riverbend Home to find attractive and whimsical style elements that impart seaside serenity to any space, whether you’re furnishing an oceanfront vacation home or decorating a beach-themed bedroom. Coastal décor brings the laid-back, breezy feel of a beachy lifestyle to your home through the use of soft colors, weathered finishes, touchable textures, and natural lighting. From wall art, mirrors, furniture, and decorative accents to table linens, scented candles, bath towels, blankets, and baskets, our collection includes everything you need to bring casual coastal style to any space.

Incorporate a Coastal Color Palette Inspired by the Sea

Coastal design is defined by its color palette: Start with a slate of white to make your space feel open and airy, and then complement the light aesthetic by incorporating coastal colors in your home accents. Toss pillows and blankets across the sofa—choose cozy textures in blues, greens, grays, tans, and other tones that mimic the shades you find at the seashore. Tie it all together with a matching vase on the mantle, coordinating candle on the coffee table, or decorative accent on a bookshelf. If you prefer a more dramatic aesthetic, put a tropical twist on your coastal décor with bright colors, palm motifs, and vibrant floral patterns, or take the nautical route with bold maritime stripes in deep navy blues and reds.

Opt for Coastal Home Décor With Natural Textures

For unmistakable coastal style, incorporate furniture and accents that suggest weathering by the sea, sand, and wind. Explore woven wicker or rattan, distressed wood or metal, and rough-hewn rope in options running the gamut from tabletop trays to bar stools to wall art. Whether it’s a weathered wooden chest, decorative objects made from driftwood, or a woven seagrass basket overflowing with lightweight linen blankets, natural textures and details bring the feel of the beach to your home.

Add Coastal Style With Nautical Motifs

From portholes, anchors, and lighthouses to seagulls, shells, and marine life, nautical motifs abound in coastal décor. Incorporating a few nautical-inspired pieces may seem like a simple way to add quick coastal style, but the key to success is not to go overboard. Choose one statement piece—think large, beach-inspired wall art, an eye-catching captain’s wheel, or a sculptural side table—and add subtle touches throughout the rest of your space with boxes inlaid with shells, pillows in a coastal color palette, and other beachy decorative accents. Or opt to let your coastal home accents shine, filling spaces with objects overflowing with nautical style, and keeping the wall décor and furniture neutral.

Whether you’re looking for everyday accents for a beach-themed bathroom, a mirror and wall art for a nautical nursery, or coastal Christmas décor for your home away from home, you’ll find plenty of options at Riverbend Home.
