Coastal style is popular among home enthusiasts, and we see why – the look is simultaneously crisp, clean, and carefree. This modern home office is all of the above and features some of our favorite elements of coastal style. Read on and find out how you can create a similar look in four easy steps.
Colors are key to coastal style. Start with the obvious – white, off-white, beige, and shades of blue. If the colors of the ocean (from sand to sky) come to mind, you’re on the right track. Then branch out to complementary colors, such as olive green and peach. These colors will add some depth and character to your space.
Look for wood furniture in fresh white finishes that resembles outdoor pieces, such as Adirondack chairs and benches. X-frames are particularly coastal in style, too. If you’re looking for a lightweight rug, outdoor area rugs come in an expansive list of styles and price points.
Finally, think about air quality and natural light. Just like the beach, your office should get plenty of sunlight and fresh air. Open the windows or invest in a set of sheer curtains to allow partial light inside. A gentle breeze is particularly soothing and can aid in concentration.
