In the bedrooms, for a coastal cottage look, we love to keep it simple. Think less is more, still to white ship lap walls, a simple bed frame and add in color with your duvet cover. We love a navy striped one! There's something about the all white that makes it feel crisp, clean and the perfect place to wind down after a day in the sun. 

We love utlilizing shiplap walls for coastal home, we can never have enough! This bathroom is perfect for coastal cottage style. Again, simple, yet truly all you need. They even used an old sail cloth as the shower curtain and cleats as hooks to hang wet towels, it's all in the details! 

A very simple and affordable way to make your home feel more in line with the coastal cottage style is with the decor. A thick striped rug instantly makes a huge difference and really gives off a coastal vibe. While throw pillows can be a fun way to add pops of color and can easily be switched up throughout the seasons.
