    Best Space-Saving Outdoor Furniture for Small Areas

    Enjoying Your Small Outdoor Space in Coastal Style: Space-Saving Solutions

    There’s nothing like spending time outside, soaking up the sun, enjoying the view, and breathing in the fresh air. Whether you have an apartment balcony, a small deck, a cozy patio, or a porch, your outdoor space can become a perfect coastal retreat.

    However, small spaces can sometimes feel limiting. But don’t worry – with a few clever ideas and space-saving outdoor furniture you can make the most of your small outdoor area.

    Define Your Space’s Purpose

    When dealing with a small outdoor space, the first step is to define its primary use. Since space is limited, it’s crucial to focus on the main activity you want to enjoy outside. Whether it’s sunbathing, dining, working, or just relaxing, knowing what you want will help you choose the right furniture and accessories.

    Sunbathing Outdoor Furniture Essentials

    If your priority is soaking up the sun, here are some great space-saving outdoor furniture :

    Sling Chairs and Wood Footstools

    Sling chairs are a fantastic option for small spaces because they are comfortable and easy to fold away when not in use. You can adjust the reclining position to a full lay-flat option and take a nap. Pair them with a compact wood footstool for added relaxation. Though a wood footstool is designed for an Adirondack chair, it can be used with a sling chair too (I use my planter as a footrest, because that’s all the space I have). Throw in a lumbar pillow for extra comfort and style. For a coastal vibe, choose pillows in blue, yellow, or peach with stripes (a coastal must), solids, or florals.

    Bed Trays and Small Trays

    If you don’t have enough space for a side table, use a bed breakfast tray or a riser to hold a cool drink or a snack while you lounge. A sling chair is not tall, and a tray is all you need. This simple solution keeps your essentials within reach without taking up much space.

    Adirondack Chair with Retractable Footrest and Cup Holders

    Consider an Adirondack chair with a retractable footrest and built-in cup holders. With this all-in-one solution, you don’t need a side table. These chairs provide comfort with a built-in footrest and space for your drink. Add a cute throw pillow to enhance the cozy coastal feel.

    Hammock with Space-Saving Steel Stand

    If you have the space and enjoy laying down, a hammock with a steel stand is a fantastic way to relax and enjoy the breeze. This option doesn’t require drilling into concrete walls or siding, making it perfect for rentals. Plus, the steel stand can be easily moved around to suit your needs.

    Dining and Working Outdoors

    If dining or working outside is your goal but you don’t have enough space for a full dining set, consider this space-saving outdoor dining furniture:

    Folding Tables That Attach to the Railing

    Folding tables that attach to the railing are an excellent solution for small spaces. These tables function like shelves, saving space while providing a sturdy surface for meals or laptops. You can eat or work outside, enjoying the view. They are easy to assemble and can be folded away when not in use, freeing up space.

    Space-Saving Outdoor Table and Chair Sets

    Look for table and chair sets where the chairs tuck neatly under the table when not in use. These space-saving outdoor furniture sets are designed to save space and are perfect for small balconies or patios. They provide a functional dining or working area without taking up too much room. Opt for a set in light, coastal colors to keep the space feeling open and airy.

    Avoid: Bistro dining table and chairs folding sets (those that the table and chairs have “scissor” legs). They are uncomfortable. The chairs don’t fit well under the table because the legs clash, and the chair’s back doesn’t offer comfortable support.

    Putting it All Together

    By defining your space’s purpose and selecting the right outdoor furniture, you can create a functional and stylish coastal retreat, no matter how small your outdoor area may be.

    I hope that with these space-saving outdoor furniture solutions, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors comfortably and beautifully.

  • Tips for a Small Coastal Living Dining Room Combo Layout

    In this issue of “My Rental Coastal Home Makeover Journey” series, I’m sharing with you the start of the transformation: the living-dining room combo layout!

    Creating an Open and Relaxed Layout for a Coastal-Style Living Dining Room Combo

    The layout of a home is very important because it determines how easy and comfortable it is to move around and use the space.

    In a coastal home, the layout should create a sense of openness and relaxation. It should make the most of natural light and provide easy access to outdoor areas like patios or balconies. Furniture should be arranged to allow for clear pathways and to create cozy, inviting spaces for relaxation and socializing.

    If, like me, you have a living-dining room combo in a coastal home, making the space feel open and inviting is key. It’s important to arrange furniture in a way that allows for easy movement, natural light, functionality, that fits your lifestyle, while ensuring the seating area faces beautiful views or a focal point like a fireplace.

    When I first saw the pictures of my soon-to-be home I immediately knew where the dining and living areas would be. I wanted a coastal dining nook, an airy living area to enjoy the fireplace in the winter, and access to the balcony to sunbathe and maybe have some meals outside.

    Living Dining Room Combo floor plan

    However, when I arrived, the layout was the opposite.

    The first thing you saw when entering the room was a dining set, a huge shelving unit, and a huge armchair (large and with a tall back) in the corner. Then, crammed in a corner (my dining nook!) was a red sofa with a weird media unit on the side, a large coffee table, and a small table.

    Issues with this room combo layout:

    This not only wasted good space, but blocked access to the balcony (it’s a hinged door), blocked natural light, and took the focus away from the most charming feature of this room: a rustic corner fireplace—a rare find in an apartment.

    Also, by not centering the living area around the fireplace and in the largest area of the room, this layout misses out on the chance to create a cozy, airy, inviting space to socialize and relax by the fire at night.

    So this layout had to go!

    My Vision for the Space: A Cozy Coastal Living Room and a Coastal Dining Nook

    When I rented this house I had to agree to keep the furniture. Quality stuff, sturdy, but store-box matchy set with a cherry wood finish, very 2000s; a worn out, cat ripped, discontinued IKEA sofa-bed; a fake-antique dark blue armchair; and an amazing sturdy dark wood coffee table.

    But even though I had to keep these items, the layout had to change.

    I disassembled some things and stored them (like the weird media unit) and in the beginning I separated the bookcase (it’s a 3-part unit) and put the larger section in the soon-to-be laundry room; but in the end I put everything back in the living room.

    1. Making better use of the Space: I moved the dining set to the smaller corner, creating a “breakfast nook”. This freed up the larger area to be used as a living room, not only making it the first welcoming space you see when you enter but also creating a large, airy relaxing space.

    2. Highlighting the Fireplace: I made the fireplace the focal point of the living room. By arranging the sofa and armchairs around it, I created a cozy seating area perfect for relaxing by the fire.

    3. Maximizing the View: I positioned the seating to take full advantage of the room’s windows, which offer a lovely view. This not only makes the room feel more open and airy but also draws attention to the beautiful outdoor scenery.

    4. Balcony Access: I made sure that the layout provided easy access to the balcony, allowing for a seamless indoor-outdoor flow. This space is perfect for sunbathing and enjoying the coastal breeze. Well, I still had the armchair blocking the door. My nightmare for over a year. It was so large that didn’t fit anywhere else in the house.

    Minor Challenges with this Living Dining room combo layout:

    There were some minor challenges with the layout I chose.

    There are no doors, just a large opening in the middle of the entry wall.

    The fireplace is in a corner, and it’s not a huge room, so the only place to put the sofa and sitting area was against the wall facing the fireplace. Any other placement and I would either be blocking the natural light coming from the windows, blocking the balcony, and/or facing the kitchen, with my back against the windows. Not an option at all! Who wants to see a kitchen (in this case, another challenge in itself) when we want to relax?

    Despite these challenges, this was the best layout for the living room.

    I had space for my big side table lamps, a coffee table, and we could still walk easily from the entry to the dining room and I could see the fireplace from all areas.

    Now, it was time to decorate it and make it Coastal Style…with this furniture…oh well.

    Final Keynotes:

    If you have a living-dining combo room, or any other combination of spaces:

    • Define the different areas (a living area, dining area, reading area, gaming area…) with the space itself, rugs, dividers like plants or console tables.
    • Maintain a cohesive coastal style in the several areas.
    • Define or create a focal point (like a fireplace for the living area, or a window view, or a large painting…)
    • Make sure it’s easy to access each area and to open doors without obstacles or walking around furniture.

  • New Series: My Rental Coastal Home Makeover Journey

    I’m starting a new series of blog posts here on Living Buy Coastal. I’ll be sharing with you my Rental Coastal Home Makeover journey.

    All my life, I’ve poured over home decor magazines, shows, videos, and Pinterest boards, devouring every image and idea. My father is a contractor, my mother was always redecorating our home, so I grew up with home decor inspiration, the smell of paint, and helping my mother drag furniture around the house.

    Home decor became my obsession. Whenever I see a house I think of ways to decorate it.

    And now I have my new rental to play around.

    Even though I like different decor styles, there is one in particular that I love: coastal homes.

    There’s nothing like coming home to a tidy summer house after a whole day at the beach. The scent of Castile soap, warm milk, stone and sunscreen takes me back to happy summer days.

    Coastal style has always been my favorite, so much so that I bought wooden coastal coasters many years ago, even though at that time I was light years away from having my own home. But I knew one day – oh one day, I would have my coastal style home and these coasters would fit perfectly.

    After many, many, years, that day arrived. I saw a house for rent that was exactly what I was looking for and I went for it.

    I was so excited! I could finally decorate my house exactly how I wanted…right?

    Well…not exactly. From money and time, to structural and rental constraints, turning my home into a coastal haven has been quite a journey.

    And in this series: “My Rental Coastal Home Makeover Journey”, I will share my coastal home transformation: my vision, ideas, products, and solutions to turn this home into a coastal retreat.

    So, I invite you to step inside my world as I navigate the highs and lows of my coastal home makeover journey. It won’t always be smooth sailing, but it will be an adventure worth embarking on.

    Let’s dive in!

  • Coastal Pantry organizers, baskets, glass jars, glass bottles, spice rack, storage bag organizer, pantry cabinet

    Classic Ideas to Organize Your Coastal Pantry

    In a previous post, we discussed general guidelines for decorating a coastal pantry.

    In this article, we’ll provide specific ideas and product suggestions for organizing a small coastal pantry in a farmhouse, country-coastal style with a touch of Hamptons. Whether you have glass doors, a niche, or a closed cabinet, who wants to see a mishmash of tiny mismatched plastics, dripping oil bottles, tacky honey shelves, and an overall messy cabinet? After all, we cook with our eyes too, right?

    So, without further ado…let’s dive in!

    The Pantry Cabinet: Coastal and Hamptons

    For this coastal pantry ‘get-the-look,’ we’ve selected a white pantry cabinet with French glass doors and drawers, reminiscent of an antique country pantry.

    This pantry cabinet is available in two sizes: small and large. The small size features 2 large drawers and 2 doors, while the large size includes 4 drawers and 3 doors.

    Coastal Pantry Organization

    Let’s organize the pantry using coastal style items: baskets, glass jars, adding wood and golden touches.

    Storage Baskets:

    Utilize large storage baskets to contain fruits, potatoes, onions, and garlic. Position them on the bottom shelves, which are capable of supporting heavier loads, or within the drawers (these drawers can hold up to 11lbs). Why put pretty baskets inside drawers if they’re not visible, you ask? You don’t have to, but if you have the means, why not? It adds to the overall aesthetic.

    Opt for smaller wicker baskets to store canned foods, sauces, tomato paste, and less visually appealing containers that can’t easily be replaced. This method ensures they remain concealed while also staying grouped and organized. You can lay the cans horizontally to easily view their labels.

    Bottles for Cooking Oil:

    Transferring cooking oil to a different bottle doesn’t take much time, contrary to popular belief, but the results are remarkable. If you have open shelves or glass doors, using elegant glass bottles for olive oil, cooking oil, vinegars, and other liquids can make a significant impact. These bottles with a golden lid are particularly beautiful and will enhance the aesthetics of a coastal kitchen, blending rustic charm with chic sophistication.

    Alternatively, use a bottle rack or another small basket to hide the original bottles.

    Glass Jars with Lid:

    We all know they look beautiful and, again, it’s not that time consuming to pour the ingredients in a jar. Sometimes you may ask yourself “Why am I doing this?”, but the end result is so rewarding, you know it’s worth the effort. Plus, it’s much more convenient when you need to use them

    So, use jars to store rice, pasta, dry grains, flour, sugar, salt, starches, cereals… You can choose various sizes, but maintain consistency with the same model. One gallon jars for cookies and large quantities of ingredients, and half gallon jars for smaller amounts. Add one rustic wooden scoop to…well…scoop from the jar. You can opt for just one scoop or one per canister.

    Spice Jars

    Sure, you can store all your little spice jars inside a basket where no one will see them.

    However, how cute are cohesive spice jars like these? They’re affordable and can be proudly displayed on your shelves. Arrange them inside a small basket, or on a wooden lazy susan, or a wooden spice rack.

    Tea and Packets Organizer

    Consider using a rustic tea wooden box to organize tea bags, coffee capsules, and sugar packets. Not only does it serve as a storage solution, but it also provides a stylish way to serve guests, allowing them to choose their preferred tea or coffee blend. You can also use this box to store other small packets in the spices and baking ingredients shelf.

    A Hamptons Staple in the Pantry: the Ginger Jar

    Not only is it decorative, but a white and blue ginger jar also offers the perfect size to store spaghetti (so hard to find the right size in a pretty container), cookies, and large amounts of whey protein (those huge containers) adding both interest and functionality to the pantry and kitchen.

    Storage Bags, Foil and Paper organizer

    For organizing storage bags, foil, and wax paper in a coastal-inspired and neat manner, there are a few options:

    One is to place them in a basket. Another, is using a pre-made, beautiful wood storage bag and foil organizer that can be placed inside a shallow drawer or vertically within the pantry.

    Ideas to Organize the Pantry

    Here’s one method for organizing the pantry (for one person), but everyone has their preferences:

    Bottom Shelves or Drawer: Store heavy items such as potatoes, fruits, onions, milk, and juices.

    Second Shelf: Arrange canned foods, dry goods (rice, pasta, noodles, grains, beans), salt, and stock cubes.

    Third Shelf: Organize various types of flours, sugar, and baking ingredients (yeast, vanilla, dried fruits).

    Fourth Shelf: Store cooking oils, spices, and condiments.

    Fifth Shelf: Dedicate this shelf to breakfast items and snacks, including cereals, teas, cookies, honey, chocolate, and coffee.

    Drawer, Another Shelf, or Door Storage (if not glass): Keep all types of wrapping paper and bags inside a box for easy access

  • Coastal Chic on the Wall Above the Sofa

    Your living room is the heart of your home, and the wall above the sofa is its canvas. This space serves as the focal point of the room, drawing the eyes and attention of both residents and guests alike while creating a frame for the sofa.

    In coastal home decor, this space offers a fantastic opportunity to infuse your room with the serene and relaxed vibes of the seaside. Whether you’re enjoying the ocean breeze from the Hamptons or from your coastal cottage, here’s how to make the most of this prime decorating real estate.

    1. How and Where to Layout Decor Above the Sofa

    Before deciding what to hang on the wall above the sofa (even if you already have an idea), let’s talk about canvas area, layouts, measurements and all that stuff. How and where to display decor above the sofa.

    1.1. What Area of the Wall Above the Sofa Can you Fill?

    Let’s define the canvas area, which refers to the entire wall space where you can arrange your decor.

    The width of the wall canvas: To determine the width of the wall canvas, it should ideally be 2/3 of the width of your couch. You can calculate this by dividing the width of your sofa by 3 and then multiplying the result by 2. Alternatively, you can directly multiply the width of the sofa by 0.66 and round the number to the nearest whole

    The height of the canvas area: The middle of the whole composition should be at 57” to 62” (150 cm) above the floor to stay at the eye level. The bottom edge of the composition should be between 8” to 10” (20-25 cm) above the sofa’s back.

    The distance from the sofa: As already mentioned, the distance from the sofa to the canvas area is between 8” to 10” (20 to 25 cm). Too higher than that and the composition will look lost, disconnected. Too low will make it lose it’s space.

    The center and middle of the wall area: With these measurements, you can now define the center and height of the composition by tracing diagonal lines from corner to corner (a-b; c-d).

    Is it possible to hang the decor higher, closer to the ceiling? Yes, it can create a statement wall, but ensure it remains at least 8” to 10” (20-25 cm) below the ceiling and 8” to 10” (20-25 cm) above the sofa.

    However, keep in mind that the closer the decor is to the ceiling, the lower the ceiling will appear

    That means in small to medium size living rooms it may overwhelm the space and make the room look smaller. But it can work. Suppose you make a white framed gallery wall with just a small soft blue picture in the middle of a large white mat. You basically have a sort of wainscot white wall with small blue squares in the middle, right?

    Can you go wider? Same as above. If you want to frame the sofa area with a statement wall then fill the sofa’s width and the wall height (with a space of 8”-10” (20-25 cm) from the sofa and the ceiling). But if the room is small, it may overwhelm it and make it look busy and smaller.

    Remember that while these are guidelines, you have the freedom to play around with the measurements. Just avoid going too ‘out of bounds.

    1.2. How to Layout Decor Above the Sofa and Create a Gallery Wall.

    Now that you have identified the wall area to style, you can explore various combinations and decor pieces.

    You can either place one large piece in the center, occupying the entire space or at least half of it. Alternatively, you can divide the area into 3 or 5 columns, or create 2 or 3 rows, such as 3 columns and 2 rows, to fashion a gallery wall or showcase multiple decor items.

    When arranging multiple pieces, like in a gallery wall, maintain a distance of 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7 cm) between each piece.

    For a clean coastal style, symmetry and cohesiveness work best, as the coastal aesthetic thrives on spacious and tranquil spaces. Therefore, it’s advisable to avoid trendy gallery walls with differing frame styles and cluttered layouts.

    A helpful tip is to create a mock-up by cutting out paper in the same size as your frames or decor elements. Attach these paper cutouts to the wall area using masking tape or poster putty to visualize the overall look. This will allow you to make any necessary adjustments before finalizing your arrangement

    2. What to Hang Above the Sofa?

    Now that you have determined the area and the layout to decor, it’s time to decide what items to hang above the sofa for a coastal style.

    Coastal style encompasses a wide range of variations, spanning from rustic to sophisticated, modern to traditional, and everything in between. Therefore, your choice of decor should align with the specific coastal style you wish to evoke.

    For rustic coastal styles, such as coastal farmhouse, coastal country, or rustic Hamptons, consider opting for weathered white or natural-colored wood frames, natural fiber elements, or bronze, iron, or brass nautical objects.

    On the other hand, if you’re aiming for a more sophisticated coastal look, such as traditional Hamptons or coastal chic, you might lean towards polished white or brass frames, complemented by elegantly styled objects that contribute to a neat and refined ambiance.

    Hang Coastal Artwork

    One of the most straightforward and visually stunning ways to adorn the wall above your sofa is with coastal-themed artwork. Consider the following options:

    • Seascape Paintings: Gorgeous depictions of waves crashing on the shore, serene beach scenes, or sailboats at sunset can transport you to the coast with just one glance.
    • Gallery Wall: Create a gallery of smaller coastal artworks. Mix and match beach-inspired paintings, prints, and photographs. To maintain cohesion, choose frames with similar styles or colors.
    • Nautical Charts: Framed nautical charts or maps of your favorite coastal destinations not only look fantastic but also add a personal touch to your decor.

    Personalized Coastal Gallery

    Personalize your coastal gallery wall with a mix of your favorite coastal images instead:

    • Vacation Memories: Frame and hang photographs of your beach vacations or coastal adventures. These personal touches make your decor uniquely yours.
    • Artistic Arrangement: Arrange the frames in a visually appealing manner, mixing in artwork or coastal-themed quotes that resonate with your love for the sea.
    • Family Wall: Dedicate the wall above your sofa to family photos taken at the beach. Choose coordinating frames in white, gold or weathered wood to maintain a cohesive look.

    Reflect Coastal Beauty with Mirrors

    Mirrors are a versatile and strategic choice for enhancing your coastal decor:

    • Reflect Light: Mirrors can brighten up your living space by reflecting natural light. Place a mirror above your sofa to amplify the sunlight streaming in through your windows. Either one large wall mirror, a gallery of small mirrors or one round mirror
    • Add Elegance: Use a decorative mirror with a coastal or nautical frame, such as weathered wood or driftwood, rope, or one that mimics a boat hatch. This adds a touch of elegance to your decor. It not only reflects light but also reflects your refined taste.

    Coastal Sculptures and Wall Decor

    For an extra touch of coastal charm, consider adding sculptures or wall decor pieces:

    • Beachcomber’s Bounty: Display found treasures like driftwood, seashells, and sea glass in shadow boxes or frames for a unique and beachy wall collage.
    • Metal Wall Art: Choose metal sculptures or wall art pieces with a coastal theme, such as seagulls, starfish, or anchors.

    Timeless Beachy Clocks

    A large decorative wall clock can be a focal point of your coastal decor:

    • Beach House Chic: Opt for a clock with a beachy or nautical design, like one with weathered wood, seashell accents, or a driftwood frame.
    • Functional Elegance: Besides its aesthetic appeal, a wall clock serves a practical purpose and helps you keep track of time in your relaxing coastal oasis.

    Wall Decals and Stencils

    If you’re seeking an artistic and budget-friendly option, consider wall decals or stencils:

    • Ocean Murals: Adorn your wall with a stunning ocean mural. It’s like having a window to the sea right in your living room.
    • Stenciled Patterns: Stencils can create beautiful coastal patterns, from waves to seashells. Customize the colors to match your decor palette.

    Coastal Greenery and Botanical Prints

    Bring a touch of nature to your coastal decor with botanical prints:

    • Botanical Prints: Framed botanical prints of coastal flora like seagrass, palm leaves, or beach roses add a touch of botanical beauty to your decor.

    A Console Table Behind the Sofa

    If you have space, add a thin console table behind the sofa. It serves both decorative and functional purposes. You can adorn the console table with coastal-themed decor, such as seashell-filled vases, beachy sculptures, or coastal artwork, adding depth and visual interest to the wall. Additionally, you can use the console table to display family photos, fresh flowers, or even a stylish table lamp, further enhancing the ambiance. You can then add one picture frame, mirror or gallery wall above it.

    3. Light Up the Wall Above the Sofa: Add Sconces

    If you want to add both style and functionality, consider adding wall sconces to the sides of the composition or a gallery light above it. This will draw the eyes to the composition, adding ambient light and enhancing the focal point.

    Putting it All Together

    Incorporating these creative ideas into the wall above your sofa will transform your living room into a coastal haven that radiates comfort and style. Whether you’re embracing the classic Hamptons look or a more relaxed beach cottage vibe, these decor options will help you create a space that feels like a coastal retreat every day. Dive into the charm of coastal chic and let your living room become a coastal masterpiece that tells your beachy story.

  • Coastal Living Room with Coastal Sofa Pillows

    How to Arrange Coastal Sofa Pillows: Tips, Tricks, and Patterns

    Creating a coastal-inspired ambiance in your home involves careful attention to detail, from choosing the right color palette to selecting the perfect decorative elements. One often underestimated aspect of coastal decor is the arrangement of sofa pillows. These seemingly small accessories can significantly impact the overall aesthetic and comfort of your living space.

    In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the art of arranging sofa pillows in a coastal home, taking into account different sofa sizes and how to mix patterns, with a special emphasis on incorporating the timeless allure of stripes.

    Coastal Living Room and Coastal Sofa Pillows

    The Basics of Coastal Pillow Arrangement

    Before diving into specific arrangements, let’s establish the fundamental principles of arranging sofa pillows in a coastal home.

    Coastal Throw Pillows Color Palette for White, Cream and Blue Couches

    Begin by selecting a coastal color palette that resonates with your personal coastal style, matches the color palette chosen for the living room or a blue focal point and another that matches the color of the sofa. Coastal decor often embraces soft blues, crisp whites, sandy neutrals. These colors mimic the soothing hues of the sea, sky, and sandy shores, creating a serene coastal backdrop.

    Throw Pillow Colors for a White Sofa: White and blue and maybe add a sandy tone if you have natural fibers and brass decor in the living room. You can choose very soft shades for a serene calm look, or more intense for a fresh vibe. A navy blue and white combination will create a nautical look, either modern or traditional, depending on the patterns chosen (classic, solids or geometric) and the rest of the decor.

    Cream Sofa: Use a cream color that matches the couch as solids or as a background color and add light blues, ashy neutral blue-gray and off-white.

    Blue Sofa: If you have a blue couch, use different blues, with white or cream as background or solids, depending on the rest of your decor.

    Pillow Styles

    Incorporate a variety of pillow styles to add depth and visual interest to your sofa. Consider using square pillows, rectangular lumbar pillows, and bolster pillows. Each style serves a unique purpose in both aesthetics and comfort.

    Mixing Pillow Patterns for a Coastal Vibe

    Once you have your dominant colors, you can then choose the patterns. What patterns?
    Stripes, Solids and another pattern that picks the colors of the main fabric.

    Start with Stripes for Coastal Charm

    It’s the coastal must-have. If there’s a pattern you want to use in a coastal home is stripes. Striped pillows evoke the breezy, nautical feel of coastal living. Start by choosing a striped pattern that you like that match the coastal colors already mentioned as a dominant pattern.

    Add Calmness with Solids

    Balance the patterns with solid-colored pillows in the same color as the pattern, if these will be in the background, or a neutral that matches the sofa if these will be in front of the main pillows. You want the background pillows to stand out from the couch.

    For a coastal cottage style choose textured fabrics like linen or burlap that evoke the feel of beachy sand and driftwood, for a more chic and classy look, choose softer fabrics.

    Add Rhythm With Another Pattern

    Mix florals for a coastal cottage, coastal romantic; damasks, ropes, nautical and traditional patterns for a Hamptons look (read more about mixing patterns and choosing pattterns in a Hamptons style) and leafs, fishes and lines that evoke the sea for a relaxed coastal style.

    Mixing only stripes: You can mix varying stripe widths and directions to keep the arrangement dynamic, just follow the next rule:

    Vary Sizes for Balance

    Balance is crucial in pattern mixing. If you use patterns of the same scale it will overwhelm the space. Either large stripes with big florals or small stripes with small florals will create too much noise.

    The trick is to mix patterns of different sizes. Large stripes with smaller flowers, large leafs with small stripes, large stripes or fully striped patterns with smaller stripes or more spaced and smaller stripes.

    By pairing large-scale patterns with smaller ones, you keep things well-balanced.

    Arranging Pillows for Different Sofa Sizes:

    There are tested formulas for arranging pillows in different sofa sizes. You can play with it, but if you want to play safe, follow these rules:

    Throw Pillow Arrangement for a Two-Seat or Small Sofa

    For a two-seat sofa, symmetry is key. Begin with two square pillows of 24×24 or 22×22 placed symmetrically at each end of the sofa. These pillows serve as anchor points for your arrangement. They can be solid blue or have a larger stripes pattern

    Then add two more pillows slightly smaller, 22×22 or 18×18 in a solid or another complimentary pattern placed in front of the anchor pillows. This adds textural contrast and visual interest.

    Arranging Pillows for a Three-Seat or Larger Sofa

    For a three-seat or larger sofa, repeat the process for a two love seat, and if you want, add a third smaller square pillow on each side as your foundation. These third pillows can either be a solid or another pattern that goes well with the rest of the combo.

    Incorporate a lumbar pillow with a coastal-inspired pattern or texture in the middle of the arrangement. This pillow provides extra support and a stylish focal point.

    Arranging Pillows for a Sectional Sofa

    Sectional sofas offer flexibility in arranging pillows. Start by placing a square pillow in each corner of the sectional for a balanced foundation just like above (24×24 or 22×22). These will be the base. And as in the schemes above, these have the larger prints, or are in a solid color to create a background.

    Layer smaller square pillows, just like above, with coastal patterns or textures in front of the pillows at both ends of the sofa. This layered approach adds depth and personality to the arrangement.

    Center Focus

    In the center of the sectional, add a third smaller pilllow with a different pattern or solid color and position a larger lumbar pillow for comfort and symmetry.

    Pillow Styling Tips

    Squeeze the Inserts

    To achieve plump, fluffy pillows, opt for slipcovers slightly smaller than your inserts. For example, fit a 24×24 insert into a 22×22 slipcover.

    Fluff and Shape

    Regularly fluff and shape your pillows to maintain their plumpness and visual appeal. This simple step ensures your sofa always looks inviting.

    Seasonal Swaps

    Embrace the versatility of pillow arrangements by swapping out pillows seasonally. For example, introduce breezy patterns in the summer and switch to cozy knits in the winter.

    Putting it All Together

    Arranging sofa pillows in a coastal home is an art that can transform your living space into a serene and inviting oasis. By considering your sofa size, mixing patterns, and incorporating the timeless charm of stripes, you can achieve a coastal look that captures the essence of coastal living. Whether you have a two-seat sofa, a three-seat sofa, or a sectional, these tips and tricks will help you create the perfect pillow arrangement that reflects your coastal style.

    So, start arranging those pillows, and let the coastal vibes flow through your home, one cozy pillow at a time!

  • How to Style a Hamptons Coffee Table

    In the world of interior design, the Hamptons style is synonymous with sophistication and coastal charm. It effortlessly marries elegance and relaxation, creating a space that’s both inviting and refined. One key element in achieving this coveted aesthetic is styling your coffee table to perfection.

    In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the art of styling a coffee table in true Hamptons style, from choosing the right table to displaying decor pieces with grace and poise.

    1. Choosing a Coffee Table in Hamptons Style

    Before you dive into styling, it’s essential to select a coffee table that embodies the Hamptons aesthetic. Here are some key considerations:

    Hamptons Style Coffee Table: To stay true to the Hamptons look, opt for a coffee table made from quality materials. Light or white-washed finishes evoke the breezy coastal atmosphere, while dark or medium-dark wood ensures nautical elegance. You can choose coastal craftsman style, a simple modern table or an antique piece.

    Shape and Size: The shape and size of your coffee table should align with the scale of your seating area. In Hamptons style, rectangular and oval tables are classic choices, but don’t shy away from a round table if it suits your space better. Ensure it’s proportionate to your sofa and provides ample room for both style and function. A rule of thumb to follow is that your coffee table should be around two-thirds the length of your sofa. This proportion creates visual balance and ensures that the table complements the seating area without overpowering it. Additionally, aim for a coffee table that is roughly the same height as your sofa for a cohesive look.

    Space Considerations: Adequate space between the sofa and the coffee table is essential for both functionality and aesthetics. Leave enough room for comfortable walking and seating. Typically, a distance of about 18 inches to 24 inches between the edge of the sofa and the coffee table works well. This space allows for easy movement and ensures that everyone can access the table comfortably.

    2. Decor Elements for a Hamptons Coffee Table

    Now that you have the perfect coffee table, it’s time to adorn it with decor elements that capture the essence of the Hamptons. Here’s what to include:

    Decorative Items: Choose decor pieces that exude coastal elegance. Nautical-themed accessories like coral sculptures, seashell collections, or nautical gadgets are excellent choices. Antique objects like clocks, bowls, sculptures or picture frames in silver, gold or ceramic will add a traditional touch. Chinese ginger jars or ceramic boxes are a Hamptons staple. Opt for a cohesive color palette, sticking to soft blues, whites, and sandy tones to maintain the Hamptons vibe.

    Functionality Items: Maintain a clutter-free surface by incorporating functional elements like decorative boxes or trays. These serve as stylish storage solutions for remote controls, coasters, or even your favorite coffee table books. Choose classic style coasters, in white or natural wood for a nautical vibe.

    Greenery: Embrace the lush Hamptons landscape by adding a touch of greenery. Hydrangeas in a simple vase or a potted palm plant infuse your coffee table with a breath of fresh coastal air.

    3. How to Display Your Decor Pieces

    Now the fun part. Styling a Hamptons-inspired coffee table requires careful arrangement for that perfect blend of elegance and ease:

    Rule of Three: Create visual harmony by adhering to the rule of three. Group decor pieces in threes, varying their height and size. For instance, you could place a stack of coastal-themed books next to a tall coral sculpture and a smaller seashell arrangement.

    Balance and Proportion: Maintain balance and proportion on your coffee table. If you have a large, eye-catching centerpiece, balance it with smaller items on the opposite side. Ensure there’s still ample space for practical elements like coasters or trays.

    Mixing Materials: Hamptons style thrives on mixing materials. Pair silver or chrome accents with natural rattan or jute textures. Experiment with juxtapositions like Chinese patterns on a porcelain vase set against a brass tray.

    Coffee Table Decor Layout Ideas

    To help you envision the possibilities, consider different layout ideas:

    1. Round Arrangement: Create a circular arrangement with a centerpiece, flanked by two smaller decor items. This layout promotes flow and conversation.
    2. Rectangular Composition: Divide your rectangular coffee table into zones. In one corner, place a vase with fresh flowers, while the opposite side can feature a coastal-themed vignette.
    3. Square Symmetry: For a square coffee table, opt for symmetrical arrangements. Place matching decor items on each corner, ensuring balance and a polished look.

    Putting It All Together

    Styling your coffee table in Hamptons style is a delightful blend of classic elegance and coastal relaxation. With the right table, a selection of decor elements that evoke the sea, and thoughtful arrangement, your coffee table becomes the centerpiece of your living space. It’s where sophistication meets comfort, creating an inviting atmosphere that truly embodies the Hamptons lifestyle.

    A coastal entryway table isn’t just about looks; it’s also about functionality:

    • Console with Drawers: If space allows, opt for an entryway table with drawers. This provides concealed storage for items you want to keep handy but out of sight, like mail and paperwork.
    • Baskets Underneath: Place baskets or bins beneath the table to store beach towels, flip-flops, or other beach essentials. This keeps clutter at bay while enhancing the coastal theme.
    • Decorative Boxes and Bowls: For smaller items, consider decorative boxes or bowls. These can house keys, coins, sunglasses, or other daily essentials.

    Don’t forget about the wall above your entryway table—it’s a blank canvas for adding more coastal allure. Here are some ideas for creating a harmonious look:

    • Mirror: Choose a mirror with a coastal frame (white, natural washed wood or brass). A mirror not only adds depth to the space but also allows you to quickly check your appearance as you head out the door.
    • Wall Art: Hang coastal-themed artwork or prints. Seascapes, beach scenes, or even abstract art in the coastal color palette can work wonders.
    • Wall Sconces: If your entryway has adequate wall space, consider adding wall sconces with shades that complement your coastal color scheme. They can provide soft, ambient lighting and enhance the overall aesthetic. Choose brass metal fixtures for a chic nautical look, black or bronze for a rustic coastal style.

    5. Entryway Table Styling Techniques for Coastal Elegance

    To ensure your entryway table exudes coastal elegance, consider these styling techniques:

    • Rule of Three: Group decor items in threes for visual balance. For instance, place a lamp, a vase, and a framed photo in a pleasing arrangement.
    • Vary Heights and Textures: Achieve visual interest by mixing items of varying heights and textures. This creates a dynamic, layered look.
    • Symmetry: For a classic coastal feel, aim for symmetry. Place matching decor elements on either side of the table for a balanced appearance.
