Modern Coastal Inspiration

Hi Everyone! It’s Sarah back with another inspiring mood board! Last month I shared some gender neutral nursery inspiration using a very unexpected color, and I’ve also discussed the color of the year and my Do’s and Don’ts for mixing styles.  This month I’m talking about a certain style in particular….Modern Coastal.

I’m not sure what the winter was like in your part of the world, but where I live it was brutal! And LONG! As spring approaches, I’ve been dreaming of sand, sun and water, and easy breezy interiors. Relaxed, coastal style is pretty popular these days, but I’m really loving a modern twist to it. Take a look at some of these inspiring Coastal Modern interiors.

  • Big, Bold Stripes are a must!
  • Bright, white painted wood paneling gives the space a breezy, coastal feel.
  • Medium tone woods add warmth. Look for unique pieces with rustic touches like the raw-edge table with hairpin legs.
  • Modern accent chairs contrast nicely with soft, white couches.
  • Abstract art and bold prints make a statement.
  • Natural Jute rugs add warmth and texture.
  • Oversized Statement lighting creates a focal point.
  • Acrylic or lucite pieces create an airy feel and give the space a modern touch. How fabulous is that lucite trunk?!
  • And finally, greenery is the easiest way to give your space a coast feel. Try adding a large palm tree to your space and you will find yourself transported straight to the beach!

  1. This is my jam!!! I am a coastal gal and am currently working on my modern coastal home office so this was just want I needed. Thanks Cassie and Sarah!!

  2. Maybe it’s just me but I click the link to the product sources and it takes me to the olio oars site but not the direct link to the moldboard itself. Any tips?

  3. Great design board! I can’t figure out how to get the product sources. Is the rug crate and barrel?

    1. Hi Renee! The link under the first moodboard should be fixed now, so if you click it, it should take you to see the sources. And the rug is actually from Dash and Albert. Hope that helps!
