10 Refreshing and Chic Coastal Dining Rooms

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.

10 Marvelous Marble Backsplash Ideas

One of my favorite trends lately has been marble. It’s a timeless, classic stone that has never gone out of style but has seen a rise in popularity in contemporary interior design and decorating. It’s great to see this elegant look get so much attention.

Marble is being used all over the home, but the kitchen definitely has some of the most stunning results. I especially love marble backsplashes. A backsplash is an excellent way to bring some character to the space. Marble backsplashes manage to look both eye-catching and understated at the same time, making them a chic option you can count on to bring in some style.

While marble is often used to bring in a touch of glamour, marble backsplashes don’t have to be restricted to feminine spaces. There are a variety of ways to use a marble backsplash, whether you want casual and rustic, minimalist, or even traditional.

Here are 10 marble backsplashes in kitchens to inspire you.
