Modern Coastal

Modern Coastal
July 2016
Summer’s sun-bleached wooden docks, lush palms, and sunshine inspired this modern coastal look from Sidney Wagner of Eclectic. She suggests establishing a color palette that references our marshes and shorelines, but upping the vibrancy of the hues, like the super-saturated green of the side table and fabric. Warm, natural fibers balance the more contemporary touches.

On what inspired this look: Wagner loves living by the sea but warns clients not to overdo it with beach-themed décor. This means bypassing clichés like conch shells and buoys. “Instead, pull inspiration from your coastal surroundings through texture, color, and feel,” she says.
