Beach themed decor has a timeless appeal. Based on the colors of the sand, sun, sky and ocean, it is a classic home decor style that has been around for years and will be around for years to come.
The coastal home decor style isn’t only for homes that are on the beach.
This casual home style is perfect for any home where you want to invoke a feeling of peace and serenity.
One of the things that I love about the coastal style is that it can go with a lot of other styles as well. For example, coastal farmhouse combines a gorgeous mix of raw wood, metals, greenery, and shiplap. Or, pair coastal decor with mid century modern furniture for an amazingly fresh and minimalist look.
Beach inspired decor can range from whimsical to realist, depending on your own preferences.
Because it is so versatile, and draws inspiration from the natural world, it can go in any home.

As you can see from the pictures, there are some key elements to adding coastal decor to your home.
First, a coastal paint color can really set the tone.
If you’re looking for inspiration or specific colors, take a look at these beach inspired paint colors. They have been specially selected by the pros at Sherwin Williams as some of their most popular paint colors for beach homes.
Second, begin adding in some beachy design elements.
This can include nautical or sea creature images, rope, jute, whitewashed wood, sea glass and more! Anything that is inspired by the sea or things that you find at the beach goes!
