How about a modern coastal farmhouse dining room with seagrass chairs? Sounds good right? I love the modern farmhouse look but mixing in coastal elements really excited me during this makeover.
Anything Seagrass, specifically dining chairs will help you accomplish the coastal look. Our seagrass chairs below from Wayfair were the perfect choice but have since been discontinued so I have linked a few similar below towards the bottom of the post.
Some of you may remember our new kitchen that we installed last fall and of course, once you renovate one room, it seems like everything around it needs a little sprucing up. Does that happen to you? Our dining room is open to our kitchen so we decided a white dining table with seagrass chairs would coordinate nicely with the new white kitchen.

The previous dining room space, which was featured in This Old House Magazine, had a dark gray on the walls and featured bold pops of color. More of a modern cottage look.
Modern Coastal Farmhouse Paint Colors
The previous room was a dark gray color so we switched it up and went with a light green color called Sea Salt by Sherwin-Williams.
We added a fresh coat of extra-white by Sherwin-Williams to the lower part of the wall and trim.
The seagrass chairs are absolutely amazing and give that summer coastal look we were looking for.
This set of 6 seagrass chairs are on sale but do not have cushions (great price thought for 6!!)
I wanted to try and add as many different textures to the room as possible so the stone candle holders were the perfect choice against the wooden table and seagrass chairs. Mine are sold out but I linked some from Amazon at the bottom of the post that are cheap so you can get the look.
The hutch is one that my grandparents gave me years ago when I bought my first house. It’s seen many different colors and I am thinking about painting it a deep gray this fall.
My grandfather gets so annoyed when I paint it, he thinks I am wrecking it. I think the white painted and the brown seagrass chairs lend to a coastal farmhouse look.
Modern Coastal Farmhouse decorating ideas
I prefer an indoor/outdoor rug in the dining room. We have dogs, kids and well just a lot of foot traffic so I find indoor/outdoor rugs clean easily. I consider rugs an investment piece so one big enough for a dining room will most likely run $800 – $1200 for a good one. BUT they will last and if you get sick of it in your dining room, just move it to your patio!
The seagrass chairs came with the seat cushions wish was an added bonus.

I filled the hutch with a mix of white pottery pieces and wooden cutting boards to tie in the warm tones that are found in the chairs and floor.
Hydrangeas remind me of my great gram and they are the perfect summer flower for any table. I love how they look with the stone candle holders and cream colored candles.
Farmhouse Decorating with Hydrangeas
The cream colored table has a section along the bottom of the table that opens and you can store the two leafs. Seriously, it’s genius!
We have absolutely no storage in our home so I was so happy when I saw that this table had a spot to keep the leafs.
The table as shown doesn’t have the two leafs in but during the holidays, we will shift the table a bit to accommodate the longer table once the leafs are put in.
Like I said earlier, the goal was to create a modern coastal farmhouse dining room with seagrass chairs and tie it in with our newly finished white kitchen.
