Coastal bedroom with a minimal design styleThere’s something refreshing about a clean and minimal coastal bedroom. It’s inviting in a way that says, “Don’t worry about a thing, enjoy yourself and relax.”

Our bedrooms should always be about relaxation and comfort which minimal design definitely offers. The clean lines in the space aren’t cluttered with unnecessary design elements which leaves your line of sight and mind stress free and mess free.

The best part about minimal design has to be the options. It doesn’t mean that everything has to be white or have a minimalistic design. That is, of course, one way of doing it, but not the only one. You can introduce color into the space and even use bold patterns, but use them in moderation to keep the clean and simple look. Check out some of these beautiful clean and simple bedrooms we’re loving!Coastal bedroom with a minimal rustic style Coastal bedroom with natural light and natural jute and wood accessories and furniture Minimal coastal bedroom Modern coastal bedroom with surfboards on the wall

Bright, coastal kitchen with jade dishes and accessoriesIt’s time to brighten up that kitchen! One way to bring more color into the kitchen is with your dish ware! Dish ware is an easy way to spice up the kitchen and bring some new, fresh color to it.

You can use dish ware and other kitchen accessories to compliment or contrast the kitchen’s color palette. It’s a fun, simple and easy way to bring more color into the kitchen. Don’t forget about other accessories such as jars and bottles. And when you feel like designing with different colors you can just switch them out! It’s as easy as that!

coastal living coastal staircase home built in storage stairsThe staircase, like the bathroom, can often be overlooked and forgotten. Don’t waste that space! It can be a tricky space because it’s not the easiest to decorate. You mostly have walls, maybe a small shelf space of sorts and a little floor space at the bottom to work with, but that’s okay!

We have found that a lot can be done in small spaces! There’s no need to limit yourself. Plus we can’t forget about the stairs themselves. We can use stair runners, wood or even tiles to decorate them giving us even more options.

Check out some of these staircases to find out what other people/designers are doing and to get some inspiration! Apply what you like to your home.

Coastal kitchen and dining area with woven chairs, white pendant lamp and striped rugIt’s time to get your weave on! Woven furniture and accessories are a great way to bring some coastal cottage feels to any space. They’re light on the eyes because they don’t have a bulky or solid look. We associate the look of rattan with a laid back, cottage feel that has the opposite effect of hard lines.

Woven pieces also bring a nice bit of texture to the space. This adds more visual depth while not having to add extra decor. Another big plus about woven pieces is that they also come in every shape and size. You can get almost anything from a woven rattan chair to the classic woven jute basket. You can go wild with woven pieces! Not recommended though, you don’t need an entire house filled with woven furniture and accessories. Think of them as accent pieces.

Check out what these designers have done with woven pieces in their space! Get inspired and then get your woven goods!
