Bask in the Serenity of These 9 Coastal Homes

These beachside retreats exude soothing aesthetics.

When we’re asked to close our eyes and think of a happy place, most of us will think of the beach or some sort of coastal setting. Maybe it's the sound of lapping waves that lulls us to sleep or the peaceful energy that comes with having sand between your toes and a clear view of the horizon that makes a coastal escape our happy place. Either way, the lifestyle that comes with coastal living is a highly sought after one.

For those who wish to recreate the soothing vibe that the beach emanates in their home, they follow the interior design choice that is coastal styling. Drawing inspiration from the natural landscape, this aesthetic incorporates natural materials, neutral hues, and plenty of light. With beige wooden tones and natural materials including linen, wicker, and stone being at the forefront of this popular design style, it’s no surprise that coastal style continues to be a well-loved aesthetic.

We’ve been lucky enough to tour an abundance of relaxing coastal homes through The Makers Series, here are some of our favourites.
