Host of Vacation House for Free, Matt Blashaw, designed this bedroom with the beach in mind. The coastal design is carried out through the natural, beachy colors he uses, such as the aqua blue of the ocean and the coral of the reef. He then used natural materials, such as the wood framing around the windows and the wood end tables to bring the outside in even more. The finishing touch is the picture of the sand piper above the bed.
Shiplap walls and white built-in bunk beds pair with sisal-style flooring and nautical light fixtures for a coastal look in this kids' room. A lifeguard chair and surfboard complete the whimsically beautiful design.
A soft gray and white color palette creates a serene master bedroom design that makes it easy to relax and unwind. Crisp, white linens cover the bed, inviting you to lay back and get comfy. A white shiplap ceiling and coastal wall art complement the beach setting.
This 4,000 sq. ft. coastal retreat features a classic blue Craftsman-style exterior with cedar-inspired shingles, dormer windows and tapered entryway columns. Two copper outdoor lights are placed above the two-car garage with a fun weather vane at the top of the home.
In this bungalow style bedroom, an oversized chair is positioned next to a window. The drapes covering the window and one pillow in the chair are made from the same blue and floral-print fabric. The subtle coastal decor creates a relaxed bedroom sitting area.
The craftsman facade of the HGTV Dream Home 2013 shows an elevated front porch with support piers and exposed steel hurricane strapping to prevent storm damage. A horizontal mahogany porch railing stands out against the sage exterior and Southern yellow pine timber beams.
This open concept living room is made to feel even more open and inviting thanks to a soft color palette. Neutral furniture encircles a glass coffee table facing a white mantel and built-in shelving. A coastal display of pottery decorates the space with a stylish, beachy vibe, and a coffered ceiling completes the timeless design.
A textured wallpaper finish creates a calm backdrop for this coastal bedroom design. A distressed wood headboard adds to the beautiful mix of textures. Seashell art and neutral bed linens are the perfect finishing touches for an inviting coastal design.
