The guest bedroom “has the feeling of this island, where there is a lot of energy," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "There is the sense that you could relax and have this nice experience of being somewhere different, but still it is very pleasant.”
Throughout this coastal California home, doors open up to connect the interior to patios just steps away from the beach and waves. Keeping a similar color theme inside and out (snappy accents of red and white) help the two spaces feel unified.
Casual Family Room in Brentwood With a Coastal Perspective
Jackson Paige Interiors designed this Brentwood home with a contemporary approach but added touches of coastal style throughout the space. This family room, for example, features a soft turquoise wallpaper as an accent wall, complementary sofa pillows, along with a coffee table, end table and art that inspire one to "hit the beach." Especially fetching are the low-to-the-ground occasional chairs that have a cottage-style aesthetic.
A brilliant stone fireplace adds a natural element to this blue and white room. The brown leather coffee table has the same terrestrial effect while a white coffered ceiling, cabinetry and French doors keep the space bright and airy.
The walls of this coastal breakfast nook are painted a fresh white, Benjamin Moore's Swiss Coffee, highlighting the gray of the charming banquette bench. A natural oak stained table and dining chairs are paired with a white airy drum light for a modern touch. Designer Becki Owens ties the look together with the pink block print fabric of the window treatments and pink and neutral throw pillows.
Simple white window treatments dress the windows in this Martha's Vineyard summer retreat without distracting from the view. A sleek, contemporary table is paired with rattan chairs for a chic, natural breakfast spot.
Coastal Living Room With Seashell Wallpaper and Built-In Bookcases
Black-and-white seashell-patterned wallpaper draws the eye in this coastal living room. A blue sectional curves through the room and is decorated with pink and navy throw pillows for added color. An area rug adds texture over the natural look of the hardwood floor. A single natural wood beam creates a simple mantel, complements the floor finish and breaks up the white space of the wall.
The large rustic dining table comfortably seats eight with a mix of chairs and a bench in a perfect example of the home's friendly, unfussy style. Overhead, painting the sloped ceiling white helps it fade into the background and makes the room feel even more spacious.
Coastal Bedroom Sitting Area With Oversized Tan Armchair
This oversized tan armchair has blue piping, a coordinating teal and turquoise pillow and sits next to a potted fern. A large white-framed picture of a sun over a body of water uses the same color scheme but with a pop of orange, red and yellow.
