You've heard of coastal style before, and you're also familiar with farmhouse, but are you aware of another design style, known as coastal farmhouse? "Coastal farmhouse is a blend of neutral soft tones and natural woods adding some coastal touches, such as shades of blue glass and beachy art," explains design Instagrammer Kim of Sunny GA Charm. "These two styles come together to create a beautiful summer look, especially for the beach lover. Wicker is always great for getting the coastal feel, too."
Now that you have a sense of what the style entails, how can you work to adapt it into your home? Basically, you'll just want to design spaces that contain an equal mix of coastal elements (stripes, blue and white, and wicker) and farmhouse touches (brass, leather, and wood, to name a few). Read on to view 26 spaces that absolutely nail the coastal farmhouse look and will have you wanting to decorate your own home in this aesthetic immediately.

Hang a Coastal Gallery Wall
In this dining nook, a traditional wooden dining set reads farmhouse while the ocean-filled gallery wall leans coastal. To achieve a similar look, gather a bunch of coastal images and arrange them all together in a beautiful gallery wall. It's up to you whether you choose to display contemporary or antique artwork. If you choose to go the latter route, flea markets can be an excellent resource for sourcing vintage, coastal themed pieces.
