3. How can you incorporate a nautical feel into a kids' rooms?
Kids' spaces can push the boundaries and be really fun. I love mixing in great nautical fabrics that are bright and fun, and décor items like rope lamps, vintage oars
, and of course some fish or whale motifs. 4. What are some ways to be inspired by the beach without using the expected seashell and anchor motifs?
I love creating a space that is layered in whites and tans to give that relaxed, beachy feel. Soft slipcovered
large furniture pieces mixed with eye-catching accent pieces—like sea grass wingbacks—are a great base. Then try adding in your favorite coastal color combo as an accent wall such as, navy and orange, teal and coral, or a timeless favorite, navy and white.
5. How can this style work in a home without an ocean view?
Anyone can have an ocean view with art! A lovely coastal painting
(found at any budget) is the perfect coastal detail for a space. Use the colors in the painting to round out the room's design and help you select your accent colors.See more from Kristy Kay in our Shop the Look gallery.
