2. Outdoor furniture

The first thing your guests will notice as they enter your coastal-inspired outdoor living area is your furniture. It must make a strong statement. For a truly beachy look, you can’t go past beautiful whitewashed wicker lounge furniture with plenty of weather-resistant cushions. If you have the space, you may even want to add an outdoor dining set for those extra-special occasions.

3. Feature lighting

When it comes to creating the perfect outdoor living space, lighting can play a key role in the overall ambiance. If you intend on using your outdoor living space in the evenings as well as the daytime, be sure to add some feature lighting like lanterns and pendant lights.

4. Greenery

To create a true coastal luxe-style outdoor area, greenery is a must. However, how much will of course depend on the amount of space you have available. If you only have a small area to work with, consider investing in some elegant potted plants to add a splash of color. If you have a larger backyard, create a coastal-inspired garden by planting plenty of lush greenery and tropical plants.

5. Poolside living

If your backyard features a swimming pool, you’re in serious luck, as nothing says ‘coastal retreat’ like lounging around by your pool. Finish off the look by investing in some timber poolside furniture in a crisp, classic white. Add in some potted plants and for something truly sophisticated, consider surrounding the pool area with durable glass fencing.

Coastal architecture style embodies a serene blend of nature and comfort in coastal-style homes. From beach-style houses to coastal interior ideas, embracing the coastal home interior aesthetic creates a tranquil ambiance.

Consider wicker furniture for outdoors, outdoor rugs for coastal style, and lighting to enhance the outdoor coastal space. Incorporate coastal bedding, outdoor throw pillows, and sustainable decor for small coastal outdoor spaces. Enjoy entertaining outdoors in coastal style with thoughtful landscaping and decor.
