​Creating the Coastal style home

by | Nov 30, 2021

The Coastal décor style is popular with Americans and Canadians who have a new home in Mexico. Natural light and fabrics, as well as ocean blue and sun-drenched white color tone, constitute the core elements of this style. From there, the category splits depending on which coast you prefer to take your inspiration: tropical, cottage, Mediterranean, or American.

Tropical is reminiscent of the Pacific. Also referred to as Island style, think dark greens, floral colors, and natural weaves. Teak is also a go-to material to create this vibe. This style is perfect for homes that are situated in jungle settings. What an excellent way to extend the outside indoors.

Cottage is arguably the most relaxed of the subsets of coastal décor style. Most furniture pieces in this style coordinate but are not matched. An eclectic approach with a common color palette is the way to tie everything together while maintaining the ultimate relaxed feel. Wood furniture made from reclaimed materials and vintage pieces that catch your interest is the best way to create this look.

The Mediterranean style evokes thoughts of bright, terra cotta colors, lots of carving detail, heavy black iron and dark woods. This is a perfect option to decorate a home in Mexico since it evokes the old world feel of the shores of Spain.

The American style of coastal décor takes a nautical slant with reflective surfaces, navy blues, and rope. Relaxed upholstery often with white or off-white slipcovers are a fixture of this coastal style. Shiplap, chevron patterns, and decorative lanterns round out the little touches that complete the style.

If Coastal décor is the style that appeals, there are some beautiful interior paint colors available in Mexico. The Coastal Cool color card is a favorite. It gives many options to work with depending on whether you prefer bold or softer colored walls.
