Ready to get the most out of your walls? Good! Because it’s time to them with art and photos!
We can’t just hang any old art though, no-no. No one wants to be that person that just puts something in their home because they saw it once in a magazine. We must take steps to be better than that. Take some time to sit down and have an honest, open conversation with yourself about art. Really put some thought into it because it’s something you are going to be looking at it everyday and every guest that enters your home with see.
This is why we must choose something fun! We must choose something meaningful! Maybe add some colorful? Maybe something silly? At least make it something cherished and loved!
A good part of the fun is the hunt. Heading out on the Wild West that is the internet and searching for your new art. The search for art is a great way to get to know yourself. You find your likes, dislikes and what really calls to you. Art is truly a great way to express yourself and to further imprint onto your home.
As always we won’t leave you baby birds without proper art inspiration. This, of course, is just a mere taste of what’s out in the wonderful world waiting to be added to your home. Go out into the world and find a piece that begs to be on your walls! Or realistically log on to Pinterest and type in ‘coastal art’ or something niche like that.
Decorating your home with beautiful sea glass is a sure way to give your home the perfect coastal feel. You can’t go wrong with the coastal blues and greens that sea glass naturally has.
The cool, coastal blues that are complimented by the greens set the perfect tone throughout any coastal home. You can utilize these colors in multiple ways with all the natural hues that you get from sea glass. You can use pastel blues and greens or even use bold ones. If you want to get extra wild you can always mix the two together.
Check out what some of these designers have done and used sea glass colors in these spaces and get inspired by sea glass!

Patterns are a staple in coastal home decor. With many of the common patterns used in coastal homes, a new one has been showing up. The geometric pattern has been spotted offering a fun and unique way to add some character and style to a space.
Geometric patterns effortlessly make their way into coastal homes because of their playful style. They’re also a quick step away from the classic stripe patterns that often show up in nautical home and beach cottages. The two patterns can be used to play off of each other, but the geometric pattern can quickly steal the show.
With the eye catching style of geometric patterns, a little accent piece is all you need. It’s easy to add a fun pillow, throw or rug to add a pop of style to the space. With the sharp lines and repeating patterns our eyes are naturally drawn to the patterns. This creates a fun accent piece that can help carry the eyes through the room.
Get inspired by this fun and energetic pattern! The geometric lines and shapes will be a fun addition to the home and add a great focal point!
