The avid beachcomber is always curious to see what the sea has strewn along the sands – perhaps an unusually colored shell or a sculptural piece of driftwood. Follow her lead, and scoop up some new treasures to replenish your coastal decor! These coastal decorating trends have washed ashore just in time for spring and summer.
Even if your toes are grazing the carpet instead of sinking in the sand, you can still relax and soak in the ambience of a sunny, languid beachfront. Or perhaps you’d rather escape the heat under the cool shade of the nearest palm. The tropical coastal decorating style is all about calming effects, from laid-back island living to the swaying fronds of palm trees.
The Palm Tree Shadow Triptych immerses you in a gorgeous island vision, with three canvases that depict the refreshing blue ocean. And what better than a breezy window treatment to allow the sunshine inside? Open up the Tropical Breeze Curtain Panels to enjoy the sunshine in full effect, or close them to let light filter through.
This coastal theme calls for soothing home accents, so keep your eye out for relaxing accessories. Unwind to the gentle sounds of the Shell Island Table Fountain, or take in the worry-free glow of the Coralline Flameless Candles. An accent lamp like the Capiz Tropical Fish Luminary provides you with soft light that isn’t jarring, and the Turtle Bay Sculpture will have you smiling with its diving pose.
If you prefer exploring the ocean to viewing it from afar, you’ll love the next coastal trend: mermaid decor! Delve into the ocean depths to catch a glimpse of this ocean princess flexing her tail as she glides through the water. You might even see her emerge from her cavern of the sea to moonbathe on a rock. Mermaid figurines like the Moonlight Mermaid feature the alluring enchantress resting for a moment, fin curled beneath her. Auristella will even hold your rings and soap if you let her float along on your counter top.
