Style Development & History

About Coastal Virtual Staging

Similar to the Hamptons style, coastal interior design is beach house chic with a vacation feel. The indoors meets the outdoors and you can almost smell the salt-kissed air and feel the crispy sand between your toes.

This design style is mostly found in traditional beach houses. It emphasizes a light and neutral color palette, including lots of soothing whites and cool blues. It’s also characterized by seaside elements, open floor plans, and airy spaces.

In a coastal home, large windows, glass doors, and skylights are crucial features to let in an abundance of natural light. Also, you’ll find that accents such as sand, rope, driftwood, shells, and the light reflecting off the water are creating a soothing ambiance. All this is incorporated in a clean, simple, and minimalistic design.

Weathered finishes reminiscent of wood and canvas beach chairs left seaside for too long are welcome, although staying away from too much clutter and kitschy decor.

According to designer Amy Leferink, the coastal design style has been around for centuries because of how people decorated their waterfront or seaside homes. It originated from luxury beach homes and lavish coastal living on the Atlantic coast. And since then, the style has made its way across the country, although taking different forms depending on the region.
