Spring Break was just last week and many of you are already missing the beach. There’s a way to bring the beach home to our fair land-locked city of Louisville. In my third installment of spring trends for your home, allow me to introduce coastal decor.
Just a simple piece of coral or two or a pillow can be enough to inspire you.
This big white coral is at Colonial Designs. Pair it with your favorite shell from your last trip and you have created a coastal vignette on your side table.
Another small coral and natural linen lamp on display at Tassels.
This basket of coral looks great next to the neutral chairs and neutral floral arrangement with dried flowers and twigs.
Blue and white chinoiserie vases pared with white coral and a natural linen lampshade make it seem warmer, even in the cooler climates.

Colonial Designs has beautiful coral prints in all colors.

Beyond prints, think about a nautical rope tie for your curtains. These are available at Restoration Hardware.
These adorable sea creature pillows are available at Two Chicks and Company for $52 each.

If you have moved beyond just doing accessories in home decor and want a little bit more coastal influence, consider these next two chairs at Colonial Designs.

These next three pictures are from Munger Interiors in Houston, Texas. They decorated a beachhouse in Galveston Texas. These trends could translate into your home, beachside or not. Crisp whites, glass, jute accessories and mercury glass are paired with coral and navy accents.
To the bedroom …
This navy blue room with white accents and an octopus print are a great way to make a statement.
Love this beautiful wallpaper with gold coral accents for the powder room.
Not blue, but bright orange highlights this sunporch with a big “lobsta” hanging on the wall.
While we normally associate coastal living with jute or seagrass rugs, look at this neutral starfish rug.
If you miss the beach so much, you could just paint your concrete floor like the sea. (This is very optically confusing to me.)
Can you hear the ocean now? The waves softly lulling you to sleeeeeeep …
