Still extremely popular, the coastal farmhouse décor style is classic and won't date quickly. It is an effortless and laid-back approach to home décor that includes simple, comfortable furnishings with a pop of seaside color and natural fibers. The farmhouse style brings in light and rustic touches, mixing old and new elements, using wood, metal, and distressing. This gives your home a clean, traditional look. The coastal vibe brings in sand colors, ocean blues, and natural textures, creating a mood of relaxation and peace.
There are, of course, many versions of coastal style, so you can keep it minimal or splash out with seaside decorations. A more modern take will be light, inspired by organic and seaside colors with textures such as jute and rattan with baskets, natural fiber rugs, and easy-to-clean linen while taking it easy on the nautical themes.
This look is simple to achieve by adding a few elegant pieces and updating your color scheme. It's easy to bring warmth, comfort, and serenity to your home with the coast farmhouse décor. Here are a few simple ideas to get you started.
A coastal farmhouse living room will include a wooden coffee table, natural fiber rug, accents of wicker chairs or wooden light fittings, and, of course, the aqua details. Bring in the seaside colors with a collection of frosted glass bottles, cushions, books, or artwork that will add a cool, airy feel to your space.
If you already have wooden beams throughout your home, that's great. Make sure the wood is exposed and not painted over. If you don't have any exposed wood, you could consider adding elements like shiplap on the walls – you can even add color to your shiplap if you wish.
This style encourages a laid-back, comfy feel to your furniture – no hard lines or formality. Rather, overstuffed cushions, slipcovers, and soft edges. You want to create a space where people can feel relaxed. Neutral colors work best, with accents of the ocean colors in pillows and throw blankets.
A large farmhouse-style dining table will anchor this décor style in your home. It's a place for the family to connect, eat, and play games. A wooden table is best, and why not stain the tabletop to accent the wood and paint the legs and chairs in white. Accent pieces on the table will bring it to life, adding cool ocean colors and perhaps even some plants.
Porch or Sitting Area
Whitewash or distress a small table, add some plants in natural fiber baskets, a pile of seaside coffee table books, a cotton towel draped over a wicker accent chair, and you're set. All in blues, whites, and natural fibers to bring home the style. If you're decorating a porch, why not add rustic reclaimed wood hand-cut wall designs. Perhaps seagulls in blues and sandy greens.
Farmhouse Breakfast Nook
If you have space in your kitchen, create a cozy farmhouse breakfast nook. Choose a small, distressed wood table and paint some vintage wooden chairs in aqua or blues. Don't forget a small coastal-themed centerpiece to bring the style together.
If you're looking to fill empty tables or shelves, have a look around for clean, simple coastal details. Find things like sea glass, woven fabrics, or a simple seaside decoration such as a starfish or a glass jar filled with shells. Here are some ideas of how to put them together:
The two design styles of farmhouse and coastal work together to incorporate lots of texture, light, and simplicity. It's an obvious way to go if you have the chance to redecorate.
