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

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.

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!

:: Pedestal Dining Tables ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

Cute an beachy dining spacePedestal tables offer a lot more than meets the eye. They offer more space, both in actual table top space and seating options, and give everyone a seat at the table. That means everyone gets enough room and there isn’t an awkward person trying to lean in to be a part of the conversation.

A pedestal table is nice change of pace from traditional dining table options. They help out in those tight spots by creating extra space and give you a little wiggle room in the corners.

These tables typically come in two sizes: large and small. A large pedestal table is great way to entertain more than two to three people. They offer the space you need and give everyone the opportunity to comfortably interact with one another at the table. For those of you with small nook or kitchen space, you’d be more interested in a small pedestal table. They seat two to three comfortably and create a person and intimate experience while filling the small amount of space provided.

Take a look at these great pedestal tables below! See how they are used and how the designers placed them in the space!
