A coastal look is so relaxing and inviting.   I have always loved the look of a beach home, so I wanted to share a few tips today.  Thanks to Lush Decor for providing bedding to inspire this post.

1.  Don’t Follow a Theme.
“Having seashells everywhere, fish netting and every sheet and blanket covered in shells or some type of sea life is old news,” David Bromstad from HGTV says.    On the same line, he reminds his readers not to buy every nautical accessory.     Finding artwork that showcases the beach and nature without being too specific on a theme is a great way to bring the outdoors in.  I love this painting that we picked up a few weeks ago.  It’s a 3-D painting, so the dress creates texture on the painting.

2. Find Colors that Calm  
There are so many colors of nature right outside of our windows.   From the blues to the sandy browns… bring the colors inside with furniture, art, and linens.  The bedding below, from Lush Decor.  It’s the Harbor Life Quilt (7 piece set)

3. Full bedding on twin bed-frames can make a room feel more comfortable.  
I love the look of these beds because they have this 7-piece full bedroom set from Lush Decor called Coastal Reef Feather Quilt.  I love how the quilts almost touch the ground to giving a luxurious feeling to a casual room.   Coral reefs and feathers combine to create a stunning reversible quilt set perfect for your own room or your guests, so you can change the look at any time by reversing the quilt to showcase the white reefs on a coral colored background.

4. Go with a background of neutral colors. 
I love the ideas found on The CanadianLogHomes website:  “This look can easily be achieved by incorporating a sandy palette, gentle hues of blues and greens with whitewashed accents. Nothing says “coastal living” quite like an open living room, oversized sofas, nautical stripes, and sea-inspired accents such as ropes, sailboats, and sea-side prints.”

5. Go bold in certain spaces.
There’s no better way to add a crisp, clean feel to your bedroom than by adding stripes.  The modern horizontal pattern enhances the design of any bedroom, like these 3 piece stripe quilt set
