Bridgehampton Beauty: Modern Coastal Style

Modern Coastal Style

Get The Look: Modern Coastal Style

Descriptive terms like “modern coastal style” get thrown around a lot in the design world, but what do they actually mean? The answer, like most design ideas is pretty subjective.

I have “beach house style” on my brain constantly these days. If you’re new here, we’ve been renovating a Rhode Island beach house for close to two years now -and we’re finally in the home stretch! So, at this point, I feel like I have a solid idea of what “modern coastal style” entails.

Very popular in New England, modern coastal style can be described as airy, clean design with a strong stylistic nod to the coast. You can be completely land locked and still enjoy all of these design elements in your own home. If you love the look, go for it!

Now that I’ve given my general view on what modern coastal style entails, it’s always better to give visual examples when it comes to this type of thing.  So, I thought I’d share a forever favorite from Hamptons Cottages and Gardens. This modern spin on a coastal style, designed by Darci Heather is right up my ally.

The tiled walls in the kitchen are a dream, not to mention the amazing wide plank wood floors.

Every time I look at these rooms I find something new to love. Inspired by this modern coastal style,  I found a few great ideas and sources – scroll through the bottom to check them all out.

Let me know if this chic home is in sync with your own idea of a modern beach house. I’d love to know!

PS: Still OBSESSED with this fabulous Hamptons house!
