Are you dreaming of a home that exudes the calm and breezy vibes of your last beachside holiday? Modern coastal styling is the perfect way to bring a relaxed, beachy atmosphere into your home, with a twist of the new to bring it into today and the future.
In this guide, we will explore what modern coastal furniture and design is all about, and provide you with tips and inspiration to incorporate this style into your own space.
What is Modern Coastal Design?
Modern coastal design is a contemporary take on the classic coastal style. It blends elements associated with the beach - such as natural textures, soft neutral colour palettes, and a light and airy feel - with more modern elements such as marble and mirrored surfaces.
At its core, this style embraces the essence of coastal living, creating a soothing and relaxed ambiance reminiscent of a beachside retreat. That hopeful feeling when you wake up to sunshine and a fresh breeze pouring into your home, and have only a lazy Sunday to look forward to.
How To Embrace Modern Coastal Styling
To bring a touch of modern coastal styling to your home, here are some key design elements to keep in mind:1. Incorporate lots of different natural textures: Mixing and matching textures such as rattan, jute, and wicker will create visual interest and add depth to your space. You might want to start small with jute cushions before moving on to bigger items, such as rattan accent chairs.Keep an eye out for furniture pieces with raw finishes, such as wooden dining chair legs or linen lamp shades, which will further create an organic and natural element in your space.
Styling Tips for Modern Coastal Decor
Now that we've covered the key attributes of modern coastal styling, let's explore how you can incorporate these elements into different areas of your home:
Modern Coastal Living Room
The centrepiece of the living room is without a doubt the sofa. Choose a comfortable sofa in a neutral colour and complement it with cushions and throws in soft blues, nautical greens, and crisp whites. Sometimes, a decorative palm leaf cushion can also bring a real plantation coastal feel to the room, and goes beautifully with a set of Palm Prints in timber frames.
In the Dining Room
In the dining room, you’ll want to opt for a light-coloured wooden table paired with woven dining chairs. Dress the table with linen tablecloths, napkins, and placemats for a touch of elegance, and complete the look with a statement pendant light above the table.
Create a serene and tranquil environment in your bedroom with a whitewashed or natural wood bed frame. Here, crisp white sheets layered with soft blue or green accents will help create a modern coastal vibe in your room. Add texture with a jute or sisal rug and rattan bedside tables.
