#FridayFavorites: Interior Design Styles – Coastal

Considering Florida didn’t get a winter at all this year and it has stayed feeling like summer, we felt it was only appropriate to choose coastal as our favorite interior design style this fine Friday! Going coastal doesn’t mean you have to go overboard with anchors and stripes. (See what we did there?) You can really turn this design style cute and creative with your own personal twist whether you’re hanging out by the beach or in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. We’ll show you how!

Both of these designs show a coastal style, but as you can see, they’re very different. This goes to show that you have many options in this interior design style. One of the options being a fresh white base with glass and shell accents. Another option showcasing a dark navy couch with light blue accents throughout reminding guests of the sea and giving off a relaxing yet homey vibe.

An airy metal bed frame is perfect for a relaxing bedroom, and it gives you freedom when picking out side tables and dressers. You can even throw some color in a little study corner with this sanded sea-foam writing desk, and you can’t tell us the blue rotating chair in the top right corner doesn’t automatically remind you of a beach house. If you want to give your coastal living room a luxurious touch, we suggest this awesome chrome coffee table. We’re also in love with this toned down sea-foam couch, and it would look absolutely perfect in a white or gray living room.

Decor

You don’t have to go too beach-y, but coastal decor is all about the decor items. Cute sanded down “distressed” trays are adorable for coffee tables, kitchen counters, or dining room tables. All these trinkets will complete any vignette, and these pillows are the perfect combination for a white or navy couch! Just remember to have fun and add in your own personal touch!

#FridayFavorites: Interior Design Styles – Traditional

So many homeowners love that traditional style. Some people try and say it’s out of style, though. We’re going to show you that keeping a traditional style in your home is definitely not out of style. It’s all about what you as the homeowner wants to see every day, so make sure you absolutely love everything you pick out! Here’s how, from foundation to decor, to make your traditional style dreams come true…

When looking for flooring, stick with hardwood options. Darker woods tend to have a classier look to them. For all around the house, feel free to go crazy with crown molding. The molding design on the cabinets and drawers screams traditional in a gorgeous way that gives the kitchen a personality.

You notice immediately that it’s mainly neutrals, but that’s not always the case. Although choosing bright furniture will be a little harder to coordinate into this design style, you still want to make sure your personality shines through your home. When it comes to finishes, try to keep going with dark woods and not too shiny metals. Keep in mind rusted metals always tend to add a really unique look to traditional pieces.

Decor

Add in your style while decorating each room! Add in your favorite colors, metals, and textures. This design style can be a little hard when trying to fit in a funky statement piece, but it flows pretty easy when it comes to decor. You don’t have to go above and beyond, but don’t be afraid to break out of the all-neutral color palette and all dark wood finishes.

Give the traditional interior design style a personal twist, and like we always say, let your personality shine through your home’s design!
