Coastal Style...this is not your momma's beach decor

After spending a week on the beautiful beaches of the Florida Panhandle I am compelled to share some of the coastal style we enjoyed.

 Our condo was obviously professionally decorated.
...that is what drew me to the unit...
Every room tied together beautifully with fun touches every now and then.  
They used a simple pallet with pops of a gentle teal and animal prints.

Rattan in both light and dark stains were used throughout 
to give that casual but elegant feel.

This is not the best picture, but they mixed coastal art in both 
the lamps, pebble bedding and art (not shown) 
with a very traditional oil painting. 

 On our way back from putt-putt, Duane agreed to stop at CoCo Island Furniture in
Orange Beach so I could check out the local wares...LOVE it!

I absolutely love the woven coffee table and side tables combined with a 
very clean lined white leather tufted sofa.

 This hand painted sideboard was absolutely stunning!

The lamps are perfectly paired with a drift wood finish on the table.  


 Love this fun storage solution for throw blankets or use as a recycle bin for the newspaper.

Coastal style often means "Embrace Color"!

Welcome to the beach!
