Florida Coastal Style Summer Home Tour

Easy touches seem to be right for this summer season of simplicity and in this post I’m sharing the Florida coastal style that I love. What makes a house a happy home is adding your own style.

The beach is where we come to relax and I’ve not gone crazy wild with typical “beach decor”, rather staying true to my love of French country style. The color palette is based on white and neutral tones with accent colors of the sea. Wood finishes are blond and a bit rustic and I’ve included natural elements such as shells and branches. Flowers add color and whenever we come up here there are bunches of florals in tow for simple arrangements.

We remodeled the kitchen at the beach house a couple of years ago and it made this space so enjoyable for us! See more about how we did that on a budget here – Beach House Coastal Kitchen On A Budget.

The countertops are quartzite, which is a natural stone like marble. I have some sources here if you’d like to see more – SHOP OUR BEACH HOME.

I’m a believer in shopping your own home, repurposing and recycling. The barstools at the breakfast bar were purchased 16 years ago and I sprayed them white when we remodeled the kitchen. We also added the molding to the bar area that was a DIY project and adds an upscale look and protects the area from shoe scuffs at the same time. I often forget to take photos when we do our DIYs, but may add that project in here someday if you’re interested.

I often try and save money by taking my weekly flower arrangements up to the beach house, since we head up there only on weekends. We don’t keep many extras there, since I don’t want to spend my weekends cleaning. Lots of natural light, a somewhat minimalist interior and softly faded colors from nature do the trick and bring on that Florida coastal style that I love.

Flowers are generally all that’s required for summer in a beach coastal style decor, and a few great old chairs.

In the living room at the house I love to add colors with rugs and this summer I’m alternating between blue and a natural jute-like look.

Texture and juxtaposition are key for me with linen and distressed wood, the sheen of old mirrors and a few collections of vintage with patina.

A few newer additions this year were the wicker French coastal style barstools and the large mirror in the dining room. Both add that ambiance, although they are not vintage as I normally go for. Mixing new though along with vintage really sets a home apart and I always encourage doing both…a little at a time as your budget permits.

I add a bit of vintage to every single room in our home and the newly remodeled laundry room is not exception! The jar holding flowers is a vintage French pickle jar and when it’s not holding flowers can hold clothespins or wool dryer balls.

In the master bedroom at home I keep it light with all neutrals that just makes us feel cooler in summer.

    . The blue rug is just he touch. Soft and elegant. The mirror is beautiful. All of it is so soothing and restful.

    1. Ruth…thank you for spending some time with me on the blog today. Happy to have you here!

  11. Better decor than that too in your face beach feel you normally find in many beach homes.
    I agree that the pink pom pom throw is too cute BUT it’s no longer at Target..bummed…
    Nobody should do work on vacation so adding in what’s brought from home is perfect! My favorite colors all around!

    1. I agree Lori…not a fan of the “Margaritaville” look in coastal decor, lol!

  12. Hello and what a beautiful home tour! So lovely and relaxing:) The pretty white French style chair with the Victorian lady statue beside the chair really caught my eye and I was just wondering where one may find a figurine like her and she had a particular style or design name. She is just beautiful draped in the embossed sculpted florals!
    Thank you so kindly:)

    1. Thank you so much, I appreciate that Pamela. This is my home and the statue is a vintage flea market find that I had painted some years ago. Enjoy your day!
