Coastal Living

I've been busy looking for art work and accessories for my clients coastal inspired home  ...I collected these images to inspire me during my search...

These styles from Blackband interiors have a contemporary feel...the coral pictures and sea grass rug add to the look...

Grass-cloth wallpaper is also used in Coastal Homes..

Brandon Architecture from orange county added coral pictures and coral in the bookcase...

I love the contemporary beach feel to these coral prints...

Barclay's Butera has a reputation for a beach style...stripes, blue and white pottery, shells and art work of the sea...which lean more toward the traditional feel.

This is a fun look with the whale..notice the mix of the pattern rug with the stripe bedspread...the fun lamp shades complete the look.

These pictures could be so fun for a beach-y look.

You can add t
o the coastal look by incorporating natural looking pieces, like the rug and the driftwood chandeliers. The wood paneling also screams beach...and I love the striped lamp shade..
