Coastal decor is a decorating style that combines the use of pastel and neutral colors with items reminiscent of the coastal. This can include using light colors, seashells and images of sea animals. While this is a popular style of decorating to use in homes near the ocean, it can be used in other homes as well.

For the wall color, consider using colors such as off white, light blue or sea green. Each incorporates a color from the coastal that can also work to have a calming effect on those who come into the room. Putting up a wall border that has seashells or small ships on it can also add to the effect.

Light-colored furniture, such as off white or tan can match the coastal decor perfectly. To add a bright punch of color, use navy blue pillows and throw blankets as accents. For those who may worry about keeping the furniture clean and not dirty, use slipcovers that can easily be washed and put back on.
Using shells for coastal decor can also bring in some of the outdoors. One option is to search for shells on the coastal; another is to purchase them already cleaned and, chances are, in perfect condition. Put them in small bowls around the house or buy items that have shells on them, such as lamps, wind chimes or picture frames.

When choosing coastal decor, it can be helpful to consider the entire layout of the room. The elements in the room should conjure up many of the same feelings one may have when walking along the shoreline. The right pieces and colors can bring everything together to produce a vacation type getaway in the home without having to go anywhere else.
