Contemporary Retreat

Designer Darci Goodman infuses the homeowners’ love for the ocean and their passion for modernism when designing this contemporary seaside retreat. Using traditional hues of white and navy blue as the primary palette, Darci also pulls in vibrant splashes of coral to create a sophisticated, summer-inspired space. However, it’s the seashells and oversize coral accessories that really pull in that coastal feel.

Nautical Focal Point

Nothing appeals to coastal living quite like this vintage model ship in designer Sarah Richardson’s summer home. She uses the piece as a welcoming focal point for guests as they enter the dining room/sitting area. This simple incorporation of nautical decor makes the boldest statement within the space.

Shades of Seashell

Cottage Charm

A cottage-style living room can instantly illicit coastal charm with simple decorative details, like hanging starfish, a nautical-inspired lampshade and rope pillow tassels. To add to the subtle oceanic feel, designer Layla Palmer incorporates breezy white draperies, blue-and-white patterned throw pillows and beadboard walls.

Island Breezes

With windows swung open and a cool coastal breeze whisking through, designer Trent Hultgren has brought a true island feel to this tranquil living space. He brings the feel of seaside living inside through the room’s all-white palette accented by seagrass furnishings, bamboo and nature-inspired pops of yellow-green.

Sea-Inspired Mix

Designer Allison Jaffe uses a subtle mix of Asian, Indian and coastal-inspired design elements to create the perfect eclectic blend in this living room. A coastal look is represented through the various blue accents, the basket of sea treasures and beach glass accessories.

Traditional Palette

Using a subdued palette of blues and greens, designer Kathryn Greeley creates a traditional seaside escape with all the classic must-haves: vintage coastal prints and pillows, a seagrass Roman shade and a beadboard ceiling.

Subtle Accents

Designer Kathy Hoffman offers a subtle nod to coastal living in this traditional great room. A sandy, neutral color palette is accented with light blues and nautical stripes. And if a home can’t be on the water, why not bring the comfort of waterfront living to the interior? An oversize harbor painting above the mantel brings that feeling straight home.

Rustic Yet Refined

HGTV fan dgabriele uses neutral hues and seashell decor to create a chic sea-inspired living space. A mix of distressed furniture and white accents showcases the casual elegance of a refined yet rustic space.

Beachy Sophistication

Nothing says “coastal living” quite like an open living room/kitchen with boat prints, ropes, pulleys, sailboats and mermaid statues. Designer Cindy Aplanalp even outfits the furniture in stark white slipcovers to contrast with the rustic furnishings and brushed-nickel fixtures. For an unexpected touch, Cindy centers the room with a brown-and-tan zebra print area rug.

Nautical Cottage

Soft neutral hues, found objects and distressed white furnishings deliver a contemporary, nautical take on traditional coastal living. While primarily incorporating sandy hues to mirror the beach, HGTV fan rkm1213 also sneaks in hints of turquoise around the space to add a vibrant color that immediately draws your eyes to every part of the room.

Natural Comfort

Ready for Guests

For this traditional living room, designer Darci Goodman uses lots of linen and turquoise to create a sand- and sea-inspired color palette ideal for guests and the homeowners alike. The room feels perfectly cozy and inviting thanks to a mix of flea market furnishings topped with seashells and heirloom accessories.

Contemporary Twist

Grandeur Appeal

Sea Tones

In this casually elegant living room, designer Allison Rejeanne uses the home’s surroundings as inspiration to create the ultimate spot for rest and relaxation. The aqua- and sandy-hued palette is the perfect balance of color and neutrality, while also bringing in natural sea-inspired tones. To pull in more of that beachy feel, Allison adds colored glass bottles, a glass ball lamp wrapped in fisherman’s netting, coral pieces and distressed furnishings.

Oceanic Details

Designer Allison Rejeanne wants this living room/entryway to feature a wavy, oceanic feel through its architectural and decorative details. The rails on the stairs are used to represent waves of the ocean, along with the slight curve of the staircase. The marble mosaic medallion at the base of the stairs features a shell and wave pattern in shades of sea green and gray to add color to the floor. In the living room, Allison coordinates rattan, sisal and weathered furnishings for a relaxed coastal look.

Casual Hideout

In this seaside sitting area, less is more. The team at SPI Design uses minimal furnishings to create a simple and soothing spot to coordinate with the ocean views. The African-style coffee table, Guadalajaran rocking chair and sisal area rug all complement each other to create a sense of balance and serenity.
