How to Recreate that Living-by-the-Sea Feeling

Coastal Inspired Trends

Not everyone can open their window to this Aegean skyline, but your decorating choices can recreate a living-by-the-sea feeling.



Benjamin Moore Color of the Year, Aegean Teal (2136-40) is the perfect hue to evoke ocean view feelings and restful spaces.

Can’t you almost smell the salt in the air?




Many colors pair with this understated teal including cool grays and last month’s featured brushed gold. These tailored roman shades are the perfect treatment for clean lines and windows of varying sizes.

STYLE TIP ~ Create a high-end tailored look with a common valance over multiple windows.

Gorgeous drapery in gray patterned fabric showcases the color beautifully, while layered window treatments offer maximum functionality.

                  • Room darkening roller shades for sleeping
                  • Sheer shadings for privacy and light control
                  • Stationary panels for style

STYLE TIP ~ Skip the window hardware and opt for board mounted panels, especially if there is minimal mounting room above the window. 


Serene Surroundings



Window seats are the perfect place to relax curled up with a good book.

This teal tone roman shade reduces the light level at a large window, and combats the sun’s glare, making the space usable.  

Accent pillows in companion fabrics ensure this seat is always taken. 






A cellular vertical shade covers this door perfectly in a soft teal tone and accented with (yes, you guessed it) muted gold tones for an upscale seating area.





Maybe you prefer a rug or accessories in your accent color and keep your main colors neutral like these soft grays,  and elegant white drapery at the door.
