Open, Nautical Fixtures

coastal style room When it comes to coastal charm, less is more. Take a minimalistic approach with fixtures that reflect natural light and complement the soft tones of natural materials. Common lighting styles you may see in a coastally designed room include:

  • Island Pendants
  • Flush Mounts
  • Globe Pendants
  • Lanterns
  • Wagon Wheel Chandeliers
  • Bell Pendants

These fixtures reflect the carefree nature of life at the beach. Exposed light bulbs and nautical elements, like woven rope detailing, offer a welcome break from every day stresses!

Reminiscent of the Beach

Surround yourself with elements that remind you of the beach in the form of lighting and decor. This may include:

  • Wicker and rattan lampshades
  • Frosted shades (like sea glass)
  • Driftwood accents

A sharp contrast from the typical modern room with the latest technologies, coastal rooms evoke a light and airy atmosphere where guests will want to unplug and wind down.
