My dream is to one day live near the coast, preferably in Carmel, California. I live for cooler temps, coastal views, dipping my toes in the sand, and the sound of the ocean waves. Just thinking about this puts my mind at ease! While I have a lot of saving or possibly winning the lottery to do before my dream comes true, it’s still possible to create a coastal inspired home no matter where you live! There are so many gorgeous light fixtures, decor items, and coastal inspired rugs to choose from, it’s unbelievable.
One thing is for sure I love featuring items that can perform “double duty” because if you’re anything like me, you love being able to justify your purchase! Many of the traditional, rustic, and farmhouse inspired furniture and decor items I share can be utilized in the coastal inspired home and outside too. If you’re searching for a gorgeous rug for your home, office, patio or cottage, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 16 of the best coastal inspired rugs in a variety of styles.
Classic Coastal Inspired Rugs
Over the last few years, I have gotten hooked on HGTV’s inspiring coastal shows “Caribbean Life” and “Christina On The Coast.” The shows are chock-full of inspiration and beautiful dream beach cottages and coastal homes! Are you ever influenced by TV shows? Years ago I fell in love with coral thanks to interior decorator Nate Berkus when he was a frequent guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show! In fact, thanks to him I fell in love with interior design. While this isn’t a Nate Berkus inspired coral accent piece, it is a beautiful coral border rug that is perfect for any room. This indoor/outdoor rug is available in a multitude of sizes and a few colors (natural, gray, and blue) and I want them ALL! It will look great under your upholstered sectional, modern round dining table, or bed to name a few.
Pottery Barn has a few gorgeous nautical inspired rugs including this fabulous coral indoor/outdoor rug! It’s trendy, affordable, and available in three colors: ivory, aqua, and charcoal gray!
With summer still upon us for nearly two more months here in extremely warm California, this gorgeous handcrafted nautical rope rug will come in handy on the patio! Not only is this rug perfect for the backyard, but it’ll also look amazing under your dining table, in your living room, or in your beach-inspired bedroom! This rug is available in navy blue and white or in natural. Which one is your favorite?
This fair trade hand-tufted seashell indoor/outdoor rug makes me nostalgic! As a kid, I loved collecting seashells, especially sand dollars. This beauty comes in four different sizes and is affordable! It looks great in front of this backdoor and will make a statement in any room in your beach cottage.
Must Have Nautical Stripe Rugs
You can’t go wrong with a blue and white stripe rug! It’ll look fabulous in any home, especially a coastal home! This Serena & Lily striped indoor/outdoor rug is available in many different sizes. Not only is it gorgeous but it is made of Perennials® Performance Fabrics. This gorgeous rug “stands up to stains, rain, and moisture to ensure immaculate style season after season.” Since it’s so durable and stain-resistant it would also be great in a dining room or your kid(s) playroom!
If you’re searching for a classic blue and white stripe rug for your traditional dining room or coastal living room, look no further than the charming Nantucket rug. It’s available in blue and white or in nickel.
You can’t go wrong with the indoor/outdoor Cooke rug! It’s available in white and blue or in terracotta, which is another hot color trend this year! This amazing rug comes in tons of sizes and is ideal for any room – from your bedroom to your craft room, living room, home office, and more. The runner is perfect for your entryway or hallway.
As a huge fan of ombre and every shade of blue, this beautiful hand woven Granville rug is on my wish list! It will look just as amazing with white furniture as it will with furniture made of natural materials! I think it looks phenomenal in this bathroom.
Trendy Rugs For Coastal Inspired Homes
Like many of you, I love investing in items that I know I will adore for years to come even if trends change! I’m partial to the Anderson rug for many reasons, especially since it bears my last name. This gorgeous handwoven rug is “64% wool and 36% recycled denim with cotton-blend backing.” It will look just as fabulous in a coastal home as it will in a farmhouse inspired house!
The fabulous Brunswick rug is perfect for any home! I love how it looks paired with a trendy rattan bed and light fixture. It would also look fabulous in a modern bedroom with a canopy bed. The options are endless! This beauty is available in the colors fog/ivory and blue/ivory.
Natural materials were such a hot trend in 2021! They are just as popular in 2022. I couldn’t be more excited and look forward to featuring them more on the blog over the next few months. This beautiful “hand-stitched, hand-pieced” Madrone rug with oversized circles is made of natural jute and will look phenomenal in any home. I can see pairing it with navy blue and white decor, blush pink, gray, a faux fiddle leaf fig tree, or favorite neutral. How about you?
Must Have Geometric Indoor/Outdoor Rug
One of the many things I love about Serena & Lily is many of their items, especially their rugs are made of recycled materials. Like many of you, I love sustainably sourced items for my home. This trendy indoor outdoor geometric pattern Seaview rug with fringe trim comes in nine different sizes and in quite a few different colors! I love them all, especially navy blue, gray, and wild rose! If this rug is on your list, be sure to visit the website to check them all out. They’re absolutely perfect and very well made.
Not only are Serena & Lily rugs well made, but this gorgeous South Shore rug is as low as $66 with free shipping! I love that it is available in multiple sizes and in navy blue and in “oyster”, which is a neutral shade! This rug is incredibly versatile and will look phenomenal in any home, especially your coastal kitchen!
