Some TikTok style trends may come and go, but there is one fresh trend that we're hoping sticks around: coastal grandmother. Content creator Lex Nicoleta coined the term that has garnered over 18.5 million views across the platform, embracing a style that screams Hamptons-chic, blue hydrangeas, and a style that makes you want to lay all day in a white Adirondack chair, sipping a fresh-squeezed lemonade. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
In our quest to create a home that Ina Garten would love to live in, we are on the hunt for the perfect pieces that fit into this quintessentially coastal style. The key to decorating as a coastal grandmother would: envision a soft palette filled with blues, whites, and taupes, and opt for decor that rings "coastal," but not kitschy.
If you're on board to start adding a bit of coastal flair to your home, we found just the pieces—and all from a longtime favorite place to shop for decor, HomeGoods. These pieces are perfect for making your home feel a bit closer to a Nantucket getaway, and we can't wait for you to shop them below.
