Soft taupe paneled walls and a neutral, traditional rug create a stylish entry in this casual, coastal home. The side table by the door provides an easy landing spot for keys, while the lamp on top means you never have to return home to a dark house. Board-and-batten-style walls add visual interest and texture to the space.
A cobalt blue door sets a cheerful tone for this single family home in Edgartown, Mass., inviting visitors to step right inside the foyer. Here, a geometric chandelier brightens the space and calls attention to the skylights and soaring ceilings.
Weathered wood floors, light-hued walls and artwork in shades of blue and green combine to give this cottage a coastal aesthetic. Large windows allow in plenty of natural light for a bright, breezy atmosphere.
What might be considered dead space on a second-floor landing is turned into a cozy nook for reading or napping thanks to a nautical-print daybed piled with pillows. Drawers in the base of the bed offer extra storage.
Designed by Heather Hilliard and Fleur Keyes, this coastal sitting area in the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase Garden Room features a teal sofa and woven armchair placed around a light-colored coffee table of metal and wood. Tall curtains with a neutral striped pattern help to frame the space.
This home's entryway is an introduction to the large living room and open floor plan that includes a dining room, family room and kitchen. The space features a weathered wood fireplace and white brick--great additions for designer Debbie Talianko's coastal-style design approach for the home. The look is soft, inviting and comfortable for family living.
This sunroom uses blue hues to echo the colors of the Hamptons Bay. Durable outdoor fabrics, striped pillows and glass lanterns accentuate the coastal aesthetic and create a comfortable spot for entertaining visitors. The bunching coffee table was a perfect addition to the room, too, as it can easily be separated into four small tables or assembled as a large coffee table.
Black-and-white wallpaper was a smart choice for the entryway as it adds subtle visual interest to the space without being too distracting. Meanwhile, a bright red sconce offers a pop of color that will appear throughout the interior.
A ruffled-edge mirror reminiscent of sea coral and clamshells gives this foyer a modern beachy look. The dark-stained wood entry table adds rough but refined texture with a vignette that sets the tone for the rest of the house.
