Coastal Decorating Ideas & Lake Homes

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. If you’re looking for interior design inspiration or coastal decorating ideas, please visit my Pinterest Group Board on Stunning Home Décor & Design. This board combines many of the top pinners and really has a wide collection of spectacular interiors. If you are looking to purchase coastal decor, I’ve also included a list of top suppliers of unique coastal home decor.
