Do you want to incorporate the coastal style into your Naples home, but need help understanding how to do it with an authentic feel?
Start where you are. A well-placed piece of furniture, accessories, or textile can be a great step in the right direction. You may consider a statement piece such as a weathered wood dining table, a comfortable seagrass woven armchair, or an oversized photo of water anchor the space. Add seagrass rugs, woven baskets, or a branchy lighting fixtures in layers. As luxury interior designers accustomed to helping achieve this look with sophistication, we can help!
Woven Interior Decor
Natural caned furniture is a staple of coastal interior design, and it's a great way to add a touch of the beach to your home. Consider adding wicker, seagrass, caned, or open-weave dining chairs to your kitchen or using an antique wicker table as a centerpiece. To complement the natural feel of the wicker, look for rugs, wall treatments, and accessories made from organic materials like hemp, linen, and cotton.
Living Room with a Water View in the Sun
If you're not lucky enough to have a sunlit living room with a water view, replicate that feeling through photographs and artwork evoking water, sand, trees, and elements found at the beach. Add side tables made from natural tree roots, flaxy linen fabrics for upholstery that replicates sandy textures, and accent furniture made from seashells.
Island Cottage Loft
If you're looking for a true coastal getaway, consider creating an "island cottage" feel. When designing your cottage, think about using textured, warming, natural materials like hemp, cotton, and stone. Add a touch of warmth with a vintage Moroccan rug, and don't be afraid to experiment with bold patterns, textures, and colors. Most importantly, for a layered feel that seems built over time....don't be afraid to mix and match.
