Coastal decor is the perfect choice if you want to create an airy and bright look in your home.  I’ve stayed in both coastal cottages and seaside inspired holiday accommodation now and I always find myself falling in love with the nautical features and dreamy beach decor.

If like me, you love being by the sea, but it’s a few hours drive at least to the nearest coastal view, then a beach themed room is the perfect way recreate those holiday vibes at home.

Coastal Decor Ideas

The Porch

Regardless of how big or small your porch is, you can still use it to set the mood for the rest of your home.  A coat of crisp white paint can brighten up even the smallest space, while a few carefully placed wicker baskets are the perfect storage to use with the coastal theme.  A nautical outdoor light can really finish your coastal themed entrance and set the scene for your entire home.


A conservatory is often used as a place to relax and is the perfect place to create more coastal vibes in your home.  Wicker furniture is perfect for a natural look, and are easily bought to life with some colourful striped cushions and a sea inspired Weston Hand Tufted blue rug from Wayfair.
