Love the Cape Cod style but apprehensive to make any major changes to achieve the coastal feel? We’ve found some amazing accents that you can add to get you started on your seaward journey.
1. Rope as Decor

It’s widely available and amazingly affordable. Simple rope becomes a statement piece when added to a glass vase or hurricane. Use different rope diameters and styles to add some dimension.
2. Driftwood Art

No, you don’t need a certificate of authenticity that it’s real driftwood; just the look that it washed to shore on some exotic island. Use it as a backdrop to a wall sculpture (like above) or on its own for a coastal touch.
3. Aqua and Sea foam Accents

Don’t paint your walls or buy a brand new blue sofa just yet. First try out some pillows, books, lamps and art in colors that remind you of the ocean.
4. Round Your Edges

Whether choosing rounded mirrors or furniture with ornamentally rounded legs – the Cape Cod style invites soft lines without harsh edges. These circular accents resemble the classic port hole design found on traditional New England sail boats and adds a touch of nautical inspiration to any room.
5. Let There Be Light

Roll up the shades, draw the drapes and slide those doors open - natural light is this coastal style’s friend!
