This seaside style is a clean, transitional style with an airy and open feel. Painted finishes, especially whites, greys and a spectrum of blues – from Oxford Blue to Sea Glass – carry the nautical aesthetic.
Furniture style cabinetry, glass doors, open shelving, beadboard, beaded doors, and shiplap keep the beachy vibe. White linen and cotton lend a casual feel. Organic nautical materials such as rope, rattan, sisal, jute, and driftwood signal the style’s maritime past. Contrast the clean white with stripes, plaids, buffalo checks, sea motifs (lobsters, whales and anchors.)
