Going Coastal

I think I must be in a beachy mood because it’s summer, which means lots of time outside and summer vacations at the beach.  Coastal style just exudes relaxation and tranquility, doesn’t it?  Light and airy spaces, cool and restful colors.  So, I thought I would bring some of that coastal inspiration to you.  Enjoy.

Love the color combination of the green window panels and the pink throw pillows against the crisp white slipcovered couch.  The other splash of color with the modern blue lamps is a nice addition.  Not to mention the yummy chandelier.
Can I go vacation at this house?  What a wonderful set up – you can prep food and chat with family and friends as they sit at the rustic table, complete with fun slipcovered chairs with button detail.  I love the transom window at the doorway as well as the vintage pendants.  The artwork ties the colors of the room together while also adding an element of fun.  Did you catch the awesome tin ceiling?
The colors in this beachy bedroom just scream coastal living, don’t they?  I love the antique bed in this room and the pairing of the cool turquoise with the light sprays of yellow in the bedding.
Again, I’m loving the pairing of the aqua and yellow in this space.  It really pops against the white beadboard in this kitchen.  I always wondered if I could pull off exposed shelving like this in a kitchen, but with such a beautiful color palette, you can’t go wrong, can you?  A farmhouse sink always wins my heart, and who isn’t a sucker for a fun polka-dot kitchen towel?   
Have a wonderful day!

    Such a relaxing place to spend a weekend or vacation with the family or some friends. The green window panels complement the interior, making the whole place so homey. It is a perfect place to get together and forget about the busy streets that we usually walk on.

    Thanks for sharing these interior pics. All of the places are so cleverly put together. I really like how they used things in ways they weren't intended. Love that kitchen design for my new house and lot in Philippines. 🙂
