Coastal Chic

I’ve found myself in a bit of a design rut lately. I’ve been struggling with incorporating the nautical seaside styles that I love so much into my home, without becoming too beachy or cottage-like [example A]. How do we encompass everything I love about coastal homes in a city apartment? I know it’ll be a fun, on-going design challenge for the next year, but my best leads right now stem from these Anthropologie pieces… sort of coastal chic, no?

[ Anchors Aweigh Door Knocker ]
[ Victorian Whale Bookends ]
[ Lobster Claw Throw ]
[ Lobster Door Knocker ]
[ Sea Anchor Bathmat ]
[ Bubbling Whale Pillow ]
[ Elizabethan Sails Shower Curtain ]

Anyone else know my dilemma? How do you incorporate seaside style into your city dwellings?

  1. The anchor mat is really! I have some touches of beach decor in my apartment like starfish in a mason jar and an old surfboard on the wall :)

  3. Love the Whale Bookends very Moby Dick and the lobster doorknocker!

  4. I say, just go on and do what you like… Boston is a coastal city therefore you should be able to have a coastal apt. :-)

  5. These are all too good.
