When considering the décor for a coastal home, many people fall into the trap of confusing it with beach inspired décor.
Whilst there is nothing wrong with nautical styled rooms, white washed walls and a display of seashells that you have found on the beach, coastal decorating does not always have to be about replicating the beach within your home.
In fact you can be far more creative, whilst still utilising some of the 'beach-themed' concepts so as to hold on to a sense of ambience. For those lucky enough to actually live by the ocean, or even those whose coastal homes are not necessarily considered a primary base but are their second homes or holiday retreats; either way the space needs to maintain an element of practicality, whilst creating a light, airy, relaxed, laid back setting that is associated with such a home.
