Coastal Design For Every Location

Date: July 18, 2016

I am fortunate. I get to live in a town where others vacation. Living near the beautiful waters of the southeastern coast is a dream come true. Due to my locale, I absolutely love coastal style. There is something so breezy and effortless about it while remaining inherently chic. Coastal design can mean different things to different people depending on where “your coast” is.

With many different coastal styles, some things remain constant. Furniture in a coastal interior should always be low maintenance and cleanable. Living rooms should be laid back areas meant for friendly gatherings. Bedrooms should put the rest of the world far away to create a completely stress free retreat. The focal point of any room with a coastal feel should be nature. Working in natural elements and colors creates a design that is in harmony with it’s surroundings.

From the traditional, soft low country interiors of the southeast to the eclectic bohemian lifestyle of SoCal, there is a coastal style to suit every taste. Let the talented interior designers at www.vavaroom.com put together a beachy room with your style and your budget.

 

Palm Beach styles have bright, fun, and funky colors mixed with glam materials like Lucite and mirror. Mixing in anything beachy or tropical and sometimes adding a hint of the exotic like bamboo is a signature of this look. This style never takes itself too seriously. Think Lily Pulitzer and you’re pretty much there!

Caribbean interiors are all about what is outside. Using louvered shutters and French doors to utilize the sea breeze is a must. Pretty colors like aquas, blues, pinks, and oranges are used sparingly with light neutrals and sheer fabrics.
