Frequently Asked Coastal Questions
Coastal Style by Ashley Furniture HomeStore
If you pine for a bungalow by the ocean—or at least, the look and feel of one—then coastal style probably speaks to you. You’ll love how this style transforms any space into a casual-cool paradise, where the sound of the ocean lapping against the waves is only a glance away in any coastal living room area. Creating a seaside theme is oh-so simple with the right colors and furniture that tells a story all on its own. Ashley HomeStore has the textures, finishes, and styles to create a coastal living space that transports you right to the beach.
Help: What Colors or Patterns Work to Achieve Coastal Flair?
Coastal furniture truly embodies life by the beach with perfectly imperfect finishes and an easy-breezy color palette of turquoise, minty green, coral, and white. Any pieces with a rough hewn finish or subtle distressing add to the charm of your beachy retreat. For patterns, add texture to the floor with a jute accent rug for extra eye-catching appeal that’ll also prevent damage to your floors.
What Wood Types and Finishes Help me Achieve Coastal Style?
Shiplap and driftwood-inspired woods bring out the beauty of coastal decor in your space. You can’t go wrong with white or light blue shiplap lining a wall, or being used to accentuate surrounding coastal wall decor. For coastal living furniture, comfortable is the name of the game—especially with outdoor coastal themes on the backyard or porch. A resin wicker is so classically beachy for outside pieces, especially with light, neutral colored cushions and textured throw pillows.
To get a Beachy Look, What Wall Decor Should I Look for?
Whatever comes to mind when you think of the beach, being on a boat, or general nautical elements all fit in perfectly with coastal chic style. Consider coastal home decor with seashells, seagulls, anchors, fish, octopi, and vibrant greenery to tie everything together. Accessorize with jars of seashells you picked from the shore and line them with string lights for a stunning decorative accent on a dresser in a coastal bedroom. Much like a view of the ocean, the possibilities are endless.
