A Coastal Classic: Driftwood

This is the second in my series on classic elements of coastal style. If you missed the first post in this series, A Coastal Classic: Stripes, click here. Each of the posts in this series will explore a different aspect of coastal style. Today's topic: driftwood.

Nothing sets a coastal tone in a room like driftwood. The grayed color, the organic shape, the interesting texture--it all says coastal and creates a relaxing, casual vibe.

There are lots of ways to use driftwood in your decor from displaying a found piece on your coffee table to using large furniture pieces with a driftwood finish. Driftwood can be found in home accessories like the bowl and charger plate shown above, in lighting like that gorgeous floor lamp and drum pendant, and in all types of furniture. I just love that round coffee table from Wayfair--just look at that texture. And the end table from Joss & Main is a coastal/industrial crossover piece that would look right at home in many rooms.

I found a few more great pieces like this amazing dining table from Joss & Main.

This beautiful dresser from World Market.

And this small console table from Hayneedle. Such a pretty finish!

If you're just looking to add a few small touches of driftwood, check out these candle holders from World Market and Joss & Main.

DIY is another option for adding driftwood touches to your home. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to achieve a driftwood-like finish on my farmhouse table. You can check out the tutorial here. And here's another tutorial  that shows how I achieved a more colorful driftwood look on a small dresser.
