The coastal grandmother aesthetic is riding a wave of popularity in fashion and home décor. (Think: linen pants, straw hat, deep cozy furnishings done in neutral colors accented with a cashmere throw). This article offers some product suggestions for incorporating this relaxed, sophisticated style into your home.
Embracing the Best of Coastal Grandmother Décor
From fashion magazines to home décor blogs to social media (we’re looking at you, TikTok) “coastal grandmother” is hands-down the style vibe of 2022.
And at Fine Linen and Bath, we are here for it. In fact, we’ve embraced the “coastal grandmother” aesthetic long before it had a name, much less the attention of influencers and tastemakers everywhere. For years, we’ve showcased airy, light-filled rooms done in neutral colors and sophisticated fabrics: we help clients create cozy interiors that are supremely elegant. And—not to brag—but we are lucky enough to live and work on a stunning coastline that delivers our own daily dose of inspiration and serenity.
Of course, you don’t need to live on the coast—or have grandchildren—to appreciate coastal vibes. (In fact, Anne Hathaway is fully embracing the coastal gran style). If you’re looking to infuse your home with a coastal grandmother look, we’ve got you covered. A short scroll through our website and collections is sure to deliver some wonderful ideas for tapping into the timeless coastal grandmother trend. But we’ve made it easy for you by curating this list of some of our favorite products that perfectly epitomize the best coastal grandmother style you’ll see this side of a Nancy Meyers movie.
So throw on your favorite cashmere sweater and settle in for a look at our finest in grandmillennial style.
