Coastal cottages are the perfect escape homes – dreamy places where you can get away from everyday life, and where you find a smile on your face the moment you arrive.

Colorful Coastal Furniture

By |October 27th, 2015|

Crisp fabrics, cheerful stripes, maritime accents, and a stunning palette of blues make coastal furniture a cool, colorful choice. Motifs featuring shells, sea life, and whimsical nautical objects finish the look. Sometimes rustic, with the look of found objects and antique shop finds, painted coastal furniture is always elegant in its own way. Breezy cane headboards, mirrored chests, and boardwalk-inspired ottomans are just some of the treasures you’ll find. Comfortable and casual, with whitewashed boards, weathered timber, and whimsical touches, coastal furniture gives your space a relaxed, welcoming feel.
