Bold coastal style? Normally I think of beach style as being soft and serene in hues of blue and green, but today’s home adds a fun twist. Strong colors mingle with nautical decor to create unique living spaces in a beautifully constructed home.
White paint pops next to chocolate brown wallpaper and a brightly striped stair runner. White board and batten allows the amazing bachelor’s chest to take center stage just below the vintage pendant light.
Chair backs mimic a sea compass while whales and ship paintings create a pleasing wall of coastal decor.
The multi-windowed living room provides stunning views of waterfront living. Bright colors add fresh cheery appeal.
In the breakfast nook, apple green creates a colorful background for the bright floral fabric used on the captain’s chairs. The braided rug underfoot echoes the color scheme. I’ve been thinking of bringing braided rugs into my own home. They were popular many years ago and I kind of miss them.
Puppy seems to enjoy his space in the sunroom that sports a large sailboat and pretty wicker furniture. More windows provide expansive views of the outdoor scenery. I love houses that have plenty of windows!
The painting above the wood mantel reminds me of Hilton Head Island. We used to go there every year and I loved the pristine beaches and soft sea grass. The homeowner added a pair of red wing chairs to repeat the color of the boat in the painting. Sailboat pillows and an ottoman with a sea compass pattern enhance the bold coastal style of this elegant home.
Red is a popular color for a dining room. My childhood friend had a red dining room and her mother had a ton of candlesticks with the wax dripping beautifully down the sides of the candles. Here, another large sailboat decorates the room with smaller sailboat plates flanking the mirror in the background.
The reverse coloring of the wallpaper pattern is used to accent the multi-leveled staircase. The detailing on the banister is beautiful.
One of the bedrooms is given a softer vibe with pale blue walls and plenty of white paint. Did you notice the whimsical painting above the bed? A pink and white footstool adds a little more character with a pirate’s skull and bones on top.
