Coastal decor is one of the hottest interior trends, and today, it is not only used for seaside resorts but also can be used to bring the reminiscent of ocean life for any home located miles away from the shore.

Generally, there are two different ways that often be used to create a coastal living room. First, you can create a fully coastal look by using all coastal elements inside your room. Secondly, you can also just bring a subtle hint of ocean looks by incorporating two or three beach-house-style accessories or furnishings.

However, whatever ways that you prefer for your house, the rug can be one interesting item that not only can make a big difference, but also can elevate and spread more ocean senses to the entire living space.

In this post, we will share with you some of our favorite coastal area rugs that we often used for our projects. You can choose which ones that you like and try to incorporate them into your current decor to wrap up the perfect coastal appearance.

Let’s get started.

This rug can be a perfect choice for you who prefer a coastal-nautical look. The large anchor pattern sparks a loud nautical appearance to the entire space, and that’s the main reason why we love to use this rug as a main focal point for the coastal-style living room.

Although we think that this baby blue color is the best choice in terms of a coastal vibe, there are still 4 gorgeous color options that you can choose: beige, gray, rust, and navy.
