I’ve been missing the beach a lot lately. It’s because the end of summer is near. My angst to make the most of it before it’s over probably harkens back to the days when I was a kid and dreading going back to school. Thankfully back to school is far behind me, but I still get that sense of urgency to squeeze in every last minute of summer. We have a trip to the beach coming up soon to celebrate Keith’s birthday but, until then I’ll happily work on some coastal interior looks – one of my favorite design styles. Below, I’ve put together some pics of some of my favorite coastal looks and a story board for coastal dining which includes some great items from Matthew Izzo, Pottery Barn and All Modern. Take a look and find some inspiration for your home, whether your coastal style is beachfront, lake front or river front.
