You can enliven your home with your own version of “coastal style” using preppy colors and popping patterns.  Here are 3 tips to help you bring the beauty of the sea inside your home!

Tip #1 – Make Casual Dining Stylish

Use fresh flowers, bright colors and chic accents for a space that will happily welcome friends, family and visitors alike.  Ditch the tablecloth for a summer-friendly design that will encourage a lighthearted environment.  Fresh accents, like pineapples and flowers, as well as textures like natural-fiber Roman shades, will help keep the room feeling summery.

Tip #2 – Use Bamboo

Fabrics, furniture, dinnerware and more can play host to this tropical plant.  When incorporated properly, it conveys a vacation-inspired vibe of sophisticated relaxation.

Add bamboo detailing for a subtle touch of coastal style, but avoid overwhelming the space by using it in small doses.  The chairs and table introduce bamboo as an understated accent while the fabric uses color to carry on the theme.  The combination makes it an obvious accent without compromising style.

Tip #3 – White is bright, not boring

Create a cherry environment with bright white paint. The sheen of white furniture will allow the accents, patterns and color of your design to stand out.  Even mismatched furniture looks chic when united by color. Use white to create cohesion that will add to the casual-chic style.

For a finishing touch, frame the view with white window trim to provide a crisp filter for ocean breezes and summer fun.
