The Best Coastal Inspired Rugs For Your Home and Patio

Coastal inspired decor is a hot interior design trend. Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 16 of the best coastal inspired rugs in a variety of styles, colors, prints and price ranges.

 

 

My dream is to one day live near the coast, preferably Carmel, California. I live for cooler temps, 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 month, 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!

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?

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 not only gorgeous but it is made of Perennials® Performance Fabrics. It “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 your kid(s) playroom!

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 hand woven 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 a farmhouse inspired house!

Natural materials are such a hot trend for 2020! In fact, it’s going to be just as popular in 2021. 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, blush pink, gray, or your favorite neutral. How about you?
