Coastal Grandmother Decor: Style of a Cozy Cape Cod Paradise



Summer may be drawing to a close, but you don’t have to bid the beach goodbye altogether. The Coastal Grandmother decor, social media’s latest obsession, can add cozy seaside luxury to your living space year-round.

Inspired by the likes of Ina Garten, Martha Stewart, and Nancy Meyers, this design philosophy finds elegance in the everyday.

While the Coastal  Grandmother aesthetic  may have been inspired by affluence, it is luxurious in an unfussy way. It’s not the kind of house where the furniture is covered in plastic, and you’re not allowed to touch anything.

The Coastal Grandmother color palette is inspired by the coastal environment, pulling hues from the sky, sea, sand, and stones.
