Turn Your Home Into a Coastal Oasis
We love the Rosewood Miramar Beach in Montecito. The luxe beachside resort exudes a relaxed elegance, with its light, airy interiors and casual-chic California vibe. The dreamy hotel is the ultimate place to draw inspiration for your own home.
The resort’s style of traditional-glamour-meets-residential-elegance can be replicated at your own home, even if your residence isn’t spread across 16 acres of prime beachfront property. Los Angeles-based developer Caruso, who has created such stylish malls as The Grove, The Americana at Brand and Palisades Village in Pacific Palisades, envisioned the Miramar as the beach home of an East Coast family and enlisted the help of internationally renowned designers Diane Johnson and Nancy Corzine.
So how can you bring a little of this elegant yet casual atmosphere into your own home?
Get Inspired: Summer staycations start outdoors and creating an inviting outdoor entertaining space is key. For outdoor furniture, create a variety of conversation areas, with performance upholstery fabric in shades of blues and neutrals.
Freshen up your outdoor décor with throw pillows that are coastal inspired, like the ones featured on the Miramar Beach Bar patio. Our favorites feature pops of bright color and classic stripes. Be sure and choose performance fabrications, like our outdoor pillows made from Perennials® fabric, which have a three year no-fade guarantee. Choose a variety of sizes such as 22" x 22" squares or 14" x 20" lumbars to create depth in your space.
Think Colors: The easiest way to bring the beach into your home is to incorporate shades of blues, teals and blush pinks, paired with sandy tones. You can also embrace beach fog hues, such as grays, whites and neutrals with natural textures, to impart a peaceful vibe, such as this favorite from Bennett+Laine.
Luxe-Up Your Bedrooms: To create a nautical chic aesthetic, start with a statement headboard, like the one pictured in this Rosewood Miramar Beach guest room, which provides the room with an effortless elegance. Top the bed with a duvet and pillow shams in a crisp, cool white and layer it with striped or patterned lumbar pillows and a statement throw.
Another way to get the look is to dress up your bed with a striped duvet like the Marlo Duvet Set from our brand partner, House No. 23. It's design simplicity that's perfect for any room.
Even if you live miles from the beach, we hope these summertime coastal living ideas will inspire you to create an oasis in your own home that can last year-round.
