14 Coastal Inspired Accents for Your Home

14 coastal-inpired beach accents for your home

Summer is a great way to bring a few beachy pieces into your home, but if you’re landlocked, you may not want to go too far down theme route. Although let’s be real, we love that look too! We think Goldilocks would agree that a few seaside-inspired pieces sprinkled throughout your home is just right. Here are some of our favorite ways to bring a little that beach flair home, without going overboard.

A. Elliot 4-Light Lantern — A little nautical charm never hurt. The glass shade on this pendant has little tiny bubbles for an antique look, and with four lights, it’ll give off plenty of glow for a foyer, hallway, or kitchen.

B. Jute Leaf Plaques — We can never say no to pieces with natural texture. These tropical leaves make a graphic statement on your walls!

C. White Heron Art — Art is a great way to give your space a little seaside flair. Our White Heron Art comes in lots of sizes and can come either on a stretched canvas or framed.

D. Capri Chair & Ottoman — Wicker is a great material to consider if you want a more relaxed, beachy style. Our Capri Chair & Ottoman has a cushion made from Sunbrella Indoor/Outdoor fabric, so it’ll stand up to stains and spills!

E. Tassel Rope Tote — The rope knot detail on this go-anywhere tote is so fun and fresh. Use it as a beach bag or for carting things around town. Perfect with white jeans and your favorite sandals.

F. Bunny Williams Faux Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree — The big tropical leaves on Bunny Williams’ Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree bring a little island flavor to a corner of your living room, entryway, or den. Plus, there’s no watering required when you head out on your summer vacay.

G. Parsons Chair Slipcover with Contrast Welt — You know what we love about this slipcover (in addition to the contrast welt)? It’s stain-proof! All four colors of this slipcover come in ultra-durable Sunbrella┬« fabric.

H. Shellfish Coir Mat — Guests certainly won’t be crabby when they spot this festive coir doormat on your stoop. We think this one little accent is a great way to update for the seasons.

I. Kara Colored Glass Collection — There’s something about colored glass, especially in green, that feels nautical to us. Maybe we just have fantasies about finding a message in a bottle! Either way, we love the way colored glass can feel nostalgic and beachy.

J. Bunny Williams’ Oversized Zinc Leaves — The supersized zinc leaves were inspired by Bunny Williams’ personal collection of antiques. They make a striking statement over a mantel or even on a sideboard.

K. Vivian Rattan Dining Chairs — Rattan is a classic material that evokes a very 60’s palm beach feel, and we’re digging the idea of using this in a contemporary space. We’re partial to the navy colorway, but white is so chic too.

L. Sea Shell Art — Look closely and you’ll see how gorgeous the champagne finish is on this art piece. Such an elegant frame elevates the simple sea shells inside, and hung in a grid, this collection is just perfection!

M. Compass Indoor/Outdoor Pillow — On the porch or in the den, our Compass Pillow is the perfect seasonal touch that goes a little bit nautical, but not enough to feel like a theme.

N. Suzanne Kasler’s Signature 13oz Linen in Cornflower, Mineral, Small Stripe Sky, and Indigo — Color is a great way to create a coastal flair without needing any kind of specific themed elements. We love this color palette from Suzanne Kasler’s linen collection. A deep indigo is balanced with mineral blue, cornflower, and a small scaled stripe.
