Coastal Dining Room

Achieving an effective beach style dining room design can be a little tricky. However, one of the easiest changes you can make is swapping out your furniture; as the focal point of the room, your table should be your biggest investment. Take time to consider various furniture pieces and what works best for your needs. Don’t be afraid to splurge — a good table can last you decades! Once you have this cornerstone piece figured out, you can then focus on implementing your favorite coastal dining room decorating ideas and storage options. What kind of beach style dining room decor should I have? When looking for nautical dining room decorating ideas, remember that you don’t want to overwhelm this refined space with too much clutter. However, simple does not mean plain, and this is a room where you can take some stylistic liberties. When decorating dining rooms, think about color schemes (after choosing your table, of course!). Usage of color can really make or break dining room designs, and the cohesion of a matching furniture set allows for colorful decor choices. Try light blue or gray walls for an elegant look, or go timeless with a black and white theme. If you want to stick to white paint, throw in some gold or copper accents, or splashes of bright colors to keep it interesting; geometric patterns, custom-painted ceilings and unique wallpapers are also effective at livening up a dining area. Top off your seaside style dining room remodel with a statement light fixture, some inspirational artwork and a large mirror to reflect more light throughout the room. Lastly, don’t forget the dining room table decor! A seasonal centerpiece, table runner or plant arrangement can immediately brighten up the entire space. How do I add storage to my beach style dining room? When choosing storage for coastal dining rooms, focus on functionality. Do you want to have a place to lay out food? Do you want more storage? Do you want to showcase any items? Take a look at various dining room pictures to see how others have incorporated storage and pull the ideas you like for your own. A china cabinet or hutch is a great way to store and display dishes or art pieces. If you need storage as well as a place to lay out food, sideboards – a long, low storage piece with short legs (also known as a “buffet”) – typically are your best bets as they have cabinets. “Servers” tend to be smaller, more formal and lighter in scale than sideboards; they can have drawers and an open bottom on taller legs, or they may have cabinets. Credenzas tend to be long, low cabinets on slender legs, often with sliding doors. Lastly, if you’re going to be using your dining area primarily for cocktail hour (or even if you’re not), consider investing in a rolling bar cart or a permanent wet bar. The dining room ideas you can choose from are really endless, so try not to get overwhelmed and remember you can always change the design down the road!

Coastal Dining Room

A large candle chandelier is the center of attention in this Nantucket-style kitchen and dining area. Candles, starfish accessories and a rustic dining table create a truly coastal-inspired space. To keep with the coastal design, designer Bruce Palmer incorporated an ocean-blue color palette from the dining chairs through to the kitchen backsplash. Patterned hardwood flooring is a lighthearted and visually appealing approach to the design.

Today, I am excited to share more details of our Estillo Project. If you missed it, catch up on the master bedroom and kitchen, and then continue with today’s dining room reveal. The vision for this home was a fresh take on a coastal vibe and we got the look in the dining room with layered whites, organic texture, and ocean blues. Take a peek!

Beautiful, clean-lined dining furniture adds texture, without detracting from the rug. We chose a rustic wood dining table with modern simplicity and paired it with woven marine rope dining chairs from Palecek (an affordable woven option here).

An open floor plan, reminiscent of the vast ocean, is a key element in coastal design. Designer Bruce Palmer took advantage of the abundance of windows by keeping the walls white to reflect more light. Wood furniture and accents bring natural elements to the space, and a glass bubble chandelier represents the water and seamlessly connects the kitchen to the adjacent living space.

A pair of faceted brass and glass pendants adds light to the room. We love these pendants because they make a statement while maintaining an unobtrusive airy quality. There are several affordable sources to get this look, if you like it check out these options here, here, and here.
