Coastal Decorating Ideas

Coastal Decorating Ideas: There are many approaches one can take in decorating their log home aside from taking a traditional rustic or western approach. Coastal decorating is another great option that works well in rustic style construction. A coastal look can easily be achieved by incorporating a sandy palette, gentle hues of blues and greens with whitewashed accents. Nothing says “coastal living” quite like an open living room, oversized sofas, nautical stripes, and sea-inspired accents such as ropes, sailboats, and sea-side prints.

One of my favorite interior design firms mastering coastal decorating is Muskoka Living Interior, based in Port Carling, Ontario. Muskoka Living (ML) celebrates the elegance of casual coastal-inspired living. They have grown from a small, local design firm founded in 1991 to a forward-thinking purveyor of design and décor that carries on the tradition of casual living with a coastal flare.

Designed by Muskoka Living Interiors designer Cory DeFrancisco, the following homes are effortlessly coastal and chic and combine a stunning neutral palette with white and hues of blue that would also work well in a log home interior. Bring coastal style to your living room with these inspirational design ideas, whether you’re by the sea or not.

I’ve provided a selection of images optimized for Pinterest at the bottom of the post.
