If you are looking to add a coastal style to your home here are some tips from their founder to help you get started?
“It’s all about the TEXTURE… From rugs (think Sisal) to Lighting ( sea glass chandilier), a coastal home is a relaxed setting to enjoy the feeling of tranquility at the beach. Leaving the color palette natural gives you this relaxed feeling. Playing with the texture allows you to build on the design. Playful motifs such as rope or shiplap often mimic aspects of the sea. Add in a port hole mirror and you are transformed to the feeling of sailing! Cotton fabrics are always a must have. The relaxed fabrics feel more casual and relaxing. Add in a few Normandy French stripes and your look is complete!”
