Coastal Dining Room With White Deer Head

A few more modern details—the white deer head, the globe pendants—balance out this dining room's casual elements. Color comes from the banquette's ocean blue cushion.

White, Open and Airy

Comfy upholstered barstools in a pretty aqua blue make a nice perch to take in this kitchen's ample natural light.

White Open Plan Kitchen With Hardwood Floor

The breezy, all-white kitchen opens onto an adjacent dining area, handy for entertaining without making the chef feel closed off.

Bright Breakfast Nook

A birdcage chandelier gives nod to the waterfowl associated with the beach. Bamboo chairs and a solid mahogany table bring natural touches, while a blue cotton area rug and sheer white draperies refresh the space.

Fresh White Accents

The bright, white walls paired with the white cabinets and kitchen island gives the kitchen a fresh, coastal feel. Dark blue barstools and black countertops add lovely contrast to the design.

Silver Coastal Kitchen With Portholes

This kitchen feels like a glamorous version of a ship's kitchen, with streamlined, silvery design elements and porthole windows. Mahogany floors are a welcome touch of warmth.

Coastal Dining Room With Bright Aqua Furnishings

Natural light streams through large windows in this dining room, illuminating the beautiful aqua furnishings. Bright orange accents pop against the aqua pieces, giving the room a fresh, beachy feel.

Cottage Dining Area With Blue Runner

For a longer oval dining table, try a runner crossing the table horizontally instead of vertically. The runner doesn't need to be as long and the effect is just as pretty.

White Coastal Kitchen and Dining Area

The gleaming white kitchen has a L-shaped island seating as well as a round glass dining table with seating for four. The large windows allow for amazing ocean views from the kitchen and dining spaces.

Neutral Coastal Dining Room With Linen Chairs

Beaded chandeliers and sculptural coral add textural, coastal elements to this classic dining room. Linen slipcovered dining chairs give off an air of elegance and effortlessness that matches this room's sophisticated-yet-beachy design. A blue-and-white striped area rug enhances this space's laid-back nautical style.

Blue and White Coastal Dining Room With Graphic Wallpaper

A bold wallpaper in a smaller room can sometimes make the space feel more intimate. In this dining room, a graphic blue-and-white pattern jazzes up the wall above the wainscoting and is a dynamic pairing with the white tree branch chandelier.

Coastal Kitchen Made for Entertaining

After an afternoon in the sun, guests can head towards the kitchen to refuel. Here, light wood cabinets keep plates and utensils within easy reach, while a long counter with five wicker stools invites everyone to take a seat.

Modern Coastal Dining Room with Corner Window Seat

A corner window seat with plenty of pillows is the perfect solution to fitting as many people as possible into this small dining space. Designers thoughtfully hid outlets and USB ports along the window seat so devices always have a convenient place to charge up. The massive custom dining table with steel base easily accomodates the family for meals or just hanging out. The ceiling is clad with shiplap to help play up the coastal feel, and a modern brass light fixture is the perfect finishing touch.

Coastal Eat-In Kitchen With Porthole

In the makeover of this beach cottage, the designers worked hard to bring the outdoors in via new windows, including gorgeous skylights in the kitchen and a fun porthole-style window. A vibrant blue-and-green pattern lifts the look of the barstools.

Coastal Dining Room With Beachy Blue Dining Chairs

A weathered dining table and light blue chairs reflect the views that stretch out beyond this dining room. A natural woven area rug grounds the space underfoot, and an industrial-inspired light fixture adds an unexpected touch overhead.

Coastal Dining Room With Blue Pendants

Teardrop pendants in clear, blue glass are the lighting over the dining table. They're a lovely nod to wave-tossed sea glass, a coastal note that feels far from kitschy.

Blue Coastal Open Plan Kitchen

Pull up one of the comfy barstools, and it's easy to stay a while in this cheerful blue kitchen. A trio of pendant lights helps define the space in the open plan design.

White Coastal Eat-In Kitchen

Designers took out a wall between this kitchen and a dining room and created a T-shaped kitchen island. One end of the island is prep space with a sink and countertops. The other side is a large dining area that can seat up to 8.

Coastal Dining Room With Blue Armchairs

In this dining room, natural fiber dining chairs and pendant lights soften the formality of the upholstered blue armchairs. The back wall's painting pays tribute to the home's coastal location.

Blue Coastal Dining Room With Wallpaper

The dining room doesn't mind sandy feet with its wood floor and natural fiber rug. On the table, candlesticks in a pretty mix of pastels add to the colorful centerpiece.

Inviting Dining Space

Natural elements and a neutral color palette surround this open dining area. Textured furniture and walls epitomize a sandy beach while giving the feeling of a lived-in space. A capiz shell chandelier completes the coastal design. Design by Lisa Sherry
