Tranquil Coastal Wall Decor

What is Coastal Decor?


Coastal decor is characterized by light walls, pale greens, and blues. Furnishings are minimal but oversized and and simple in shape. Coastal decor usually incorporates light colored woods, baskets and sailing paraphernalia.

It can be over the top and kitschy or understated and elegant!

You don’t need to live by the sea to embrace Coastal Decor, but you will often find this type of decor near the coast. If you want to incorporate this design style in your own home, these items will help you get there.

If you are looking for tranquility go for understated and pick 2 or 3 colors to use in your space. You will also want to incorporate light wood and textured baskets.

If you want a room that screams coastal decor you can mix and match prints, use bold colors with abandon and enjoy the energy that is in your room.

Art as Coastal Wall Decor


Art is one of the best ways to reinforce the Coastal design style is with art. Most Coastal Wall decor is of sailboats, the sea, or ropes. But you can find other subjects that bring in the same colors of the coast without being so literal.

This reproduction of Vincent Van Gogh’s seascape is a perfect piece for a coastal room. It brings in the colors of the sea while staying nice and neutral.

Sailboats are classic coastal symbols and are right at home in coast decor. This is a beautiful piece because it is more abstract than most you will find.

Light fixtures


Okay! A ceiling isn’t exactly a wall, but it needs to be decorated too! Plus a light fixture goes a very long way in defining a style for a room.

I love how this photo from Modsy shows how the whole room is built around the chandelier.
