Coastal Home Decor Accents and Accessories

Thanks goes out to the genius that is Google maps street view for allowing me to cruise up and down a scenic beach highway anytime I want.

It may not be the same as actually being there in person, but it is a fun in the sun way to satisfy your coastal curiosity.

White sandy beaches and deep blue waters bookended by amazing seaside architecture and interiors is an excellent source of inspiration and ideas for sourcing coastal home decor accents and accessories.

Another source of coastal inspiration comes from resort web and social sites.

“Palm trees and views I can’t believe
Why would I ever want to leave?”

Speaking of Jimmy Buffet, I took a gander at the room types at Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg.

The casual with an island edge decor and coastal home decor accents and accessories decorating Jimmy’s Hideaway epitomize coastal casual.

Speaking of The Golden Girls, how cute is this Golden Girls living room serving tray!

My aunt lives on the east coast of Florida, and her “Florida room” is furnished in super chic coastal accents and a fabulous suite of vintage rattan furniture she bought the first year she lived in Florida (1975).

She searched consignment shops and estate sales up and down the Florida coast for a set in good condition with a great price tag.  

Patience paid off, and she hit coastal home decor accents gold seven months into the hunt.

The set still makes a statement, and most certainly qualifies as an investment piece.

Pillows, Poufs, Odds and End Tables

Coastal home decor furnishings rich in sea escape colors, textures and patterns reminiscent of the coast and its landscape, skies, and waters inspire the coastal color palette, casual elegance, and seaside sophistication.

The Chatelet extendable trestle dining table offers European appeal in farm to coastal detail.

Hardwood solids paired with pecan, walnut and maple veneers replicate a provincial patina, making this a dining table contender for the casual yet elegant coastal dining room.

Since I previously referenced Margaritaville and it’s coming up on five o’clock somewhere, let’s take a look at the recipe for Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Perfect Margarita.

Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Perfect Margarita

Ingredients

2 ounces gold tequila (Cuervo 1800)

½ ounce tequila (Cuervo white)

½ ounce triple sec (Bols)

1 splash orange Curacao (Bols)

1 ¼ ounces Rose’s Lime Juice

Crushed ice

Juice of 3 lime wedges

Directions

Fill a shaker with ice and add everything but the lime wedges.
Squeeze in the juice from 2 of the lime wedges and shake very well until beads form on the outside of the shaker.

Rim only the outside edge of the margarita glass with lime and twist it around in a saucer of coarse salt (see my page on how to rim a cocktail glass).

Fill the glass about halfway with crushed ice and strain the mixture into it.
Squeeze the last lime wedge on top and drop it in.
