Start with casual organizers and hooks in light or weathered hues for a beach-inspired aesthetic. The rattan drawers of the Corvaserro Storage Cabinet will hold stray articles and keep them out of sight. Hang your keys, wraps, or parasols from the Shoreline Treasures Wall Hooks, so that the items you need most are within easy reach. Step onto the skid-resistant Rest, Relax, Refresh Foam Comfort Mat to kick off or slip on your sandals. The fun lighthouse and starfish design wonderfully complements the coastal entryway theme.
Guide the eye upward with functional wall pieces that resemble driftwood or boardwalk planks. The Relax on Beach Time Wall Clock is hand-assembled in the USA from local natural pallet wood and features cool hues. Leave messages to your family on the Weathered Chalkboard, and use the included clips to dangle notes or your favorite beach photos.
Since this splashy command center is not just utilitarian, remember to sprinkle in some beach-kissed decorative wall plaques. The four-piece Beach Memories Wall Plaque Set features realistic, dimensional resin starfish, along with coastal quotes like “You can shake the sand from your shoes but it never leaves your soul.”
A long-haired sea maiden flexes her iridescent tail as she glides through glimmering waters, perhaps dipping to skim the coral or explore an underwater cove. Summon this mystical princess into your home with alluring mermaid decor. Refresh your ocean theme with a mermaid accent in pretty pastels, multicolored jewel splendor, or a weathered, sun-bleached look. This enchantress will emerge from the deep blue sea to decorate your wall or table top – no water required!
If you need a place to store jewelry and small trinkets, the Pearl Beach Mermaid Figurine will happily oblige. The seashell she carries is adorned with a pearl finial and would look lovely on a nightstand or your vanity table. The Mermaid Welcome Accent invites guests into your home with a wash of soft colors and coastal charm. Place this decoration inside or out and let it captivate visitors with its scalloped design and glitter embellishments.
If you’re looking for a piece that glints and gleams, let the Joyous Mermaid Sculpture perch on your display surface. This celebratory mermaid flings her arms open as she balances on a boulder, revealing metallic and jewel shades of bronze, amethyst, and emerald. Or, if you love the wind-beaten, wave-tossed appearance of distressed coastal decor, you will adore the Mermaid Wall Plaque Set. Finished in off-white, these wavy-haired friends clutch their shell treasures, flicking their tails in opposite directions on your wall.
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.
