Coastal Beach House Meet Rustic Farmhouse

A coastal interior design style conjures up thoughts of pale blue hues and lots of bright whites to create a serene setting. Rustic farmhouse decor is all about soft textures and nature-inspired elements, such as wood and stone, to create a warm space that exudes charm. If you love both of these styles, you’re in luck! Derived from nature itself, these two design styles blend beautifully together to create a rustic coastal look that is both calm and cozy.

When it comes to creating a rustic coastal design style, take advantage of as much natural light as possible, which is the key to this overall home decor look. Blending a casual couch and a dining set in varying shades of white – from Ivory to Antique – gives a room dimension without deviating too far from a white color palette. For that added layer of farmhouse chic, accent the room with a hand-painted, distressed kitchen hutch adorned with ceramic pitchers and bowls in sea blues and greens.

When creating a rustic coastal design, we always recommend installing floors with a weathered look. The “scratched and distressed” style mimics a raw farmhouse meets driftwood aesthetic. These wood-look floors as the foundation to a room can give you lots of flexibility in your overall interior design style, and if using luxury vinyl in the kitchen, it adds an extra layer of durability and protection. Open shelving, glass cabinet doors, and ivory cabinets give a modern flair, while rich browns, rattan stools, and wicker baskets add contrast and a cohesive flow to the room.

Shiplap is a simple element you can add to a room that will instantly draw in rustic and coastal aesthetics. This trend is the perfect balance between barnyard and harborside, and will elevate the look of any living room or kitchen space. To complete the look, start off with a sand-toned carpet and add airy white curtains, clean slip-covered couches and chunky wooden tables in darker tones.

Nothing creates a “farmhouse coastal” vibe better than blending hints of pale blue hues with warm earth tones. We recommend using cream-colored accent decor. Soft whites are easy to work with and complement both color palettes while adding a light, airy touch. Anchor the room by installing multi-toned wood-look flooring that is both rustic yet resembles a beachside boardwalk! Maintain texture and comfort by mixing chunky throw blankets and soft pillows, and now you’ve created a charming and chic master bedroom retreat.

Geometric Flooring Ideas for Your Home

From textiles, to flooring and kitchen backsplashes, geometric trends made a big splash in 2018 home décor and this hot design trend isn’t going anywhere in 2019! Follow along to see how you can use angular shapes and different flooring hues to create a unique and trendy look for your home’s interior.

Hexagon tiles have been a classic shape in flooring for years. When paired with the right decor, you can leverage this type of flooring to create a vintage ambiance. Expect to see this tile shape paired with retro-inspired furniture in this year’s home decor.

Hexagon tiles can create an ultra-modern and sleek look in your kitchen. When paired with sharp lines, metal accents, and black and grey decor, it’s the ideal foundation to a minimalist-inspired design.

Herringbone and chevron patterns are perfect for those who want to spice up the decor in their home, but with a more simple design. We recommend using a tone of flooring that has a variety of greys and whites to add depth to your overall space.

This year we’ll see less solid squares and more elongated, uniquely styled tiles. Piece together a variety of textures and tones to create an eye-catching pattern. If you already have solid furniture in the room, opt for a tile that has a range of tones to elevate the overall design and you won’t need to change anything else!

A classic wood-look plank will never go out of style; however homeowners are looking to be more playful with the flooring they are installing in their homes. Take a risk this year and blend your two favorite wood shades into a multi-toned pattern that’s neutral enough to work with any color, yet adds enough drama to stand alone with whites and greys.
