Having lived in both California and Florida, I’ve always loved the coast. The sea is so refreshing and effortlessly beautiful. The dining room is a great place in which to capture its essence so you feel like every time you have a meal, you’re dining by the sea.
Coastal dining rooms come in all manner of flavors. There isn’t one strict look for coastal decor. It can be interpreted in a number of ways, including elegant, rustic, contemporary, traditional, cottage, and every style in between. You don’t have to stick with the obvious icons and colors that are most popular in coastal design if you don’t want to. You can get creative, make it flow with the rest of the home, and capture specifically what it is that you love most about the coast.
Here are 10 coastal dining room ideas that run the gamut of styles and show just how versatile this look can be.
