Of course, the South Florida lifestyle commands a touch of coastal in our home décor. Coastal doesn’t have to mean seashells and driftwood. Coastal décor can create a warm and relaxing vibe, as if you’re sitting on the beach or gazing out into the sea. Check out the latest trends when updating your home this summer and beyond.
Bring Pretty Outdoor Fabrics Inside
All-weather fabric options were so limited up until a few years ago, but with the latest in fabric technology, you can't even tell the difference anymore. Most of the newer outdoor fabrics are all stain and moisture resistant—they're far more hardy, so using them on barstools, pillows, and dining chairs is a great idea.
Give Your Kitchen Some Character
The past decade has seen a crush of modern kitchens with either a clean, minimal look or an endless suite of bells and whistles. Since this is the busiest room in the house, why not give your kitchen some character and charm? Here, the lime green walls and ceiling showcase the beautiful cabinets and range hood, while the greenery and fruits and vegetables show you that people live and eat here.
Install a Warm Wood Backsplash
Installing a new backsplash is easy and not too expensive. Whitewashed wood paneling in wavy designs gives this look a beachy vibe, but it doesn’t overpower the entire room.
Layering rugs adds warmth and texture to a room and this design trend can also hide imperfections and unify a space. Combining textures is key for interest and coziness. And of course, layering can be used in any room.
Embrace Caned Furniture
A coastal favorite since the 17th century, the textural rattan detailing earns an A+ for adaptability. Here, a look at how it's weaving its way into 21st-century furniture design. The cane's natural look pairs nicely with the natural wood table and blue glassware.
