Sharing coastal wall decor ideas with 25 decorating tips to get that gorgeous classic coastal look – even if you don’t live on the water!

Our family loves the sun and sand.  We spend half the year planning our waterfront getaway, and the other half savoring the memories that we made there.  I can be happy with lake or ocean water, as long as there’s lots of it and plenty of sunshine! This picture was taken on our trip to Lake Winnipesaukee. We stayed at Mills Falls and it was amazing.


Coastal Wall Decor Ideas

Not only do I enjoy the setting of a waterfront view, I love the decor that goes along with it!  There’s something so summery and fresh about nautical elements and seashells.  Granted, I’ve seen a lot of bad examples of coastal style.  But when it’s done right–oh, man, I just love the way a room with a beachy vibe can almost make me smell the saltwater!  Here are 25 examples of how coastal style can be oh-so-very-right, even in landlocked homes!  Just a note, many of the ideas pictured below have instructions for how you can get the same look, so make sure you click on the links provided for more details.

Our coastal living room in our basement remodel below came out amazing and I love the seagrass baskets hanging on the wall. I found the baskets at Homegoods a few years ago but you can get this same look with these seagrass hanging wall baskets.
