Coastal Grandmother Hues

As we wait out the last hot days of summer, we long for interiors that create the feeling of a coastal getaway. Even if you live hundreds of miles from the beach, paint schemes are an easy and attainable way to bring the popular TikTok Coastal Grandmother trend to life. A simple and restorative palette using cool breezy hues mixed with off-white and sandy tones creates a calm coastal ambiance. Natural lighting, rattan furniture, cozy throws and handwoven baskets provide a perfectly relaxed and lived-in seaside feel.
