Coastal Vintage

   We love the traditional look of coastal vintage. Distressed, bleached wood, soft colors, cozy fabrics, unique antique pieces. What could be better than that?

 

    Taking your coastal home back in style to vintage isn’t very difficult. Since most coastal homes have a lot of colors, materials, and some décor in common it makes it pretty easy to transition to coastal vintage. We pulled together some ways to take your coastal home back to that fun, vintage feel!

 

     Interior paint colors should be kept soft and light. Creams, whites, soft blues, and light shades of coral are what you should look for. I personally love the all white look of coastal homes with accents of colors. However, soft blues and light corals look great as a main color.

   Bleached wood floors run throughout a vintage coastal home. They add that vintage look and feel to the home. The rougher looking the better! Board and batten or tongue and groove paneling on the inside of your coastal home add that classic, vintage look and is a great way to spruce up your walls.

    White-washed or weathered furniture and antique pieces fit with the vintage coastal style perfectly. You can find furniture at garage sales and distress them yourself which can be a fun DIY to do! If you have fabric on your couches go for faded linens to add to the vintage feel.

  Vintage coastal décor adds so much character to a home. We love the weathered, distressed look and the classic nautical pieces. Worn looking signs, antique paddles, and twine ropes give a space that laid back, classic vintage feel. As always, seashells in vases, driftwood pieces, and other beach finds are great for your coastal décor and they fit well with the vintage feel.
