Coastal home décor is all about bringing outside elements—inside. Distressed wood finishes warm up the cool blues and whites of traditional coast décor and give your living room a sturdy, anchored feeling. While a coastal living room is meant to be airy, it still needs to feel grounded. Distressed wooden furniture, picture frames, and even bowls nicely balance the crisp cleanliness of white wood finishes.

Whether you’re in love with starfish, sea turtles, octopi, or seagulls, it’s time to bring your favorite seafaring friends home!
