Classic Coastal Cottage Decorating

Shop Coastal Decor

This bright and airy home on Bald Head Island, NC, is a great example for coastal cottage decorating. White painted wood paneling, natural materials and pastel colors give this home a classic coastal cottage look.

A blue door opens into the foyer where you are greeted by a fabulous driftwood seahorse.

All the pastel colors look so pretty against the white. They even steered clear of window treatments in the living room to keep it airy. The emphasis is on the view! I love the basket style Coffee Table. A mixed bunch of Coastal Pillows sits on the couch, casual as it should be in a cottage like this. Palm Leaves look great in the corner.

And to not interrupt the breezy flow of white, the back of the bookcase is painted in the wall color. Natural Wicker Furniture is a great choice for any coastal cottage. And check out the DIY Chandelier with Shells!
