5 Steps to Creating a Charming Coastal Cottage

Posted by Baywood Blog Team

Looking to redecorate your beautiful home at Baywood Greens summer? Check out these steps to help you design the picture-perfect coastal cottage:

Step 1: Choose Your Color Palette
Starting off with a somewhat plain base is key when decorating a classic coastal home! Simple color palettes such as this (found in our Sheffield model home) offer the perfect base for any coastal-themed cottage—exuding a simple yet sophisticated elegance, without taking away from the exciting coastal decor you select.

Step 2: Add a Few Pops of Color
Strategically-placed pops of color, such as this this beautiful turquoise chest, can really enhance the fun, playful feel of any coastal home. Bright pieces of furniture such as this piece found on our Edenton model home really draw the eye in with hues that truly pop—such as turquoise, deep blue or coral!

Step 3: Incorporate Nautical Motifs
Select a few of your favorite nautical motifs (be it rope, ships, oars or anchors), to give a subtle yet sophisticated nod to the sea. As you can see in our Edenton and Sheffield model homes here at Baywood Greens—this technique is sure to impress!

Step 4: Add a Few Coastal Accent Pillows
Next, choose a few complementary accent pillows with fun designs and festive patterns to spice up your couches and bedspreads. As you can see here in our Sales and Information Center—mixing and matching is an excellent option as well

Step 5: Add Some Subtle Seaside Accents
Last but certainly not least—be sure to add a few charming coastal elements into your vacation home, such as sea shells, starfish or sand dollars! Incorporating a few sea-inspired knick knacks into your new and improved home decor can be the perfect finishing touch to your serene coastal cottage!
