Coastal Style Decorating Ideas For Your Home

Jennifer Howard | Cottage on Bunker Hill

The New England coastal style is all about bringing the beauty of the sea into your home. With its light, airy colors, nautical accents, and cozy furnishings, this style creates a relaxing and inviting space.

 The first step to creating a coastal-inspired space is to choose the right color palette. When it comes to New England coastal style, neutral colors are key. Think shades of white, beige, and taupe, as well as blues, green, and grays that reflect the ocean and sky.

Paint your front door a coastal color like SW 'Sea Salt' to take that coastal look outside.


Coastal Accessories

There are a number of coastal-inspired items that you can use to accessorize your home. These include things like seashells, starfish, and artwork.


Coastal Wall Art

Hang coastal or nautical- inspired artwork. You can download my Maine watercolor printables for free if you need coastal art too!

 Add natural accents & materials. Think dried grasses, wood, wicker, & jute decor.


Coastal Wreath

Add a coastal touch on your front door with a seashell or beach inspired wreath.
