Series: Selecting the Right Materials for Your Design Style: CoastalMarch 7, 2016 // Posted in:
Tapping into your personal style of home décor can be an exciting endeavor. Granite Transformations makes the process seamless by helping you coordinate the perfect combination of cabinets, countertop and backsplash to create the beautiful space you’ve always dreamed of.
This month, we are featuring coastal design styles that showcase the perfect combination of products from Granite Transformations to reveal a coastal design style that will make you feel like you’re on the beach 24/7.
American Coastal Style is derived from a palette that is drawn from the beach, sand, shells and sky. Light, breezy, openness and a carefree atmosphere are the feelings that coastal spaces should evoke. Wood colors should remain light and weathered, like the blonde maple and bisque cabinets featured in the images below. You can bring natural warmth and texture with wicker furniture, touches of rope, sea grass or nautical ball pulls to round out your coastal design. Furniture should have an air of casual, weathered sturdiness.

The collection of colors and textures are reminiscent of the beach and oceanfront living. This is achieved through the use of deep, calming blues (the colors of the ocean and sky), sandy browns, “Mother of Pearl” shell (found in our gorgeous Metropolis Pearl mosaic tiles) and light maple that all come together to create a soothing atmosphere of relaxed sophistication. Our mosaic tile mixes, coffee mix with deep and light browns and charming mix of deep blues perfectly capture the essence of the sand and sea.

Iconic coastal colors are reminiscent of coral, and shells you find when scouring the beach or the bright white tops of waves as they hit the shoreline. The Flourishing 1 mosaic tile wallpaper pictured in Coastal Bathroom: Look #1 above pervades a beachy vibe of the sun and creatures from the sea. Coastal finishes are often matte (with a chalky spin), as opposed to shiny and shimmery. Layered colors of beige, khaki and cream evoke feelings of shifting dunes, which are perfect for bathrooms. Purity and simplicity are the key for creating coastal color schemes.
You can achieve these looks (and so many more) by choosing Granite Transformations products. If you are interested, schedule a free in-home design consultation for a free estimate today.
