Bright pops of coral bring a vibrant energy to this mostly white living room. Bamboo accents, like matching armchairs, Roman shades and a glass-top coffee table, add texture and tropical flair. White loveseats give the living room a fresh, crisp coastal look.

This bedroom design by Vanessa Helmick uses eclectic and coastal decor to provide a rustic feel. The distressed and whitewashed frame on the full-length mirror and planter of reclaimed wood help reinforce the casual and comfortable ambiance. A potted orchid, seashells and coral fans provide accents to complement the theme.
Though recently renovated, this foyer still has all the hallmarks of a historic home: tall ceilings with crown molding, patterned hardwood floors, a grand staircase, etc. By outfitting the space with artwork and accents in teal and coral hues, the designers were able to update the interior without compromising its character.
Designers Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak of HGTV's Good Bones wanted to create a beachy feel in this formal dining room, so they added a new coat of pale pink paint to the walls. Then, on an accent wall, the duo used coral paint to create a striped accent wall, upon which a beach painting is hung. To offset this comfortable vibe, traditional furniture creates an elegant space.
Wallpaper on an accent wall adds dimension and richness in this small, contemporary powder room.

A loft bed is built atop a colorful brick-like wall with built-in shelving in this coastal bedroom. This beach-inspired room takes cues from the outdoors, using sand-colored neutrals and sea-colored blues and greens. Seashells, coral and a driftwood fish serve as playful coastal accents.
Teen girls will love this look for their bedroom. Soft gray walls set the backdrop for the room with neutral, blue and coral as the accent colors. One side of the bed features an X-based nightstand to display photos and other knickknacks, while the other side offers a small workspace for homework, drawing or reading.
Gallery walls are a wonderful way to display your favorite art and photographs, but they can be a little intimidating, too. If you’re trying to create one with lots of color and varied frames, consider utilizing one accent color that helps to unify the space. In this living room, hits of a cheery coral are found not only within the gallery wall (in both art and frames) but also on upholstered pieces like the desk chair and ottoman. The consistent use of an accent color is what gives the space a cohesive, polished look.
This urban beach-accented living room is perfect for those that like to dress up sea accessories without appearing too theme-oriented or formal. The casual shabby-white sofas and linen draperies help to keep things laid-back for everyday comfort. One of the best places to display your sea finds is the mantel. Even if the setup is only around during the summer months, it can still bring that casual warm-weather feel into your home. And for a more formal piece that looks like it belongs all year long, try a stunning light fixture, like this white coral chandelier.
