The most important concept when it comes to the Coastal Granddaughter trend is that it isn’t a particular genre of décor, nor does it involve a certain style of lamp or coaster. The trend reflects a lifestyle that includes everything from what a Coastal Granddaughter might wear, to where she might live and what she might spend their evenings doing. A Coastal Granddaughter is feminine and chic, yet low-key and stylish. So how does this translate to home décor? Quite simply, it means chic and classy vibes with trendy beachy accents and a hint of nautical themes.
How Does this Trend Differ from Coastal Grandmother?
If you haven’t heard of the Coastal Granddaughter trend, you may have heard of its ancestor, the Coastal Grandmother trend. Inspired by Nancy Meyers movies and coined by influencer Lex Nicoleta, this trend embodies the lifestyle portrayed by characters in the movies she has directed. The trend reflects everything from what the characters wear, the houses they live in and of course the signature character traits they all have. The Coastal Grandmother aesthetic is wholesome, chic yet laid back, timeless yet preppy and always effortlessly well put together.
The Coastal Granddaughter aesthetic is a younger, cuter and slightly less polished vibe but no less wholesome. If the Coastal Grandmother is wearing a cashmere sweater to protect her from the chill of the sea air as she enjoys a cold glass of Chardonnay on her cosy porch, the Coastal Granddaughter is throwing on her oversized blue and white striped linen shirt enjoying her morning coffee in a cosy reading nook with a Taylor Swift soundtrack playing on repeat. Now it's time to learn how to tap into the Coastal Granddaughter trend...

The Coastal Granddaughter aesthetic is brimming with beach house vibes and the great news is you don’t have to live by the sea to re-recreate it. You can get the look in your own home by experimenting with the signature coastal colour palette which is muted blues, off-whites, stone, seafoam green and beige. The colour palette in most beach houses reflects the environment so shades that conjures up images of the sea and sand are key here.
Ooze East Coast Chic

One of the main influences when it comes to this décor trend is the East Coast of America. States such as Nantucket, Rhode Island, Cape Cod and The Hamptons all reflect the laid-back but well-polished vibe that is central to this trend. If you don’t want to spend a fortune recreating this trend in your own home, making the most of your wall space with our Windswept wall mural is an easy way to tap into the trend.

While the Coastal Granddaughter trend boasts a signature neutral and elegantly plain aesthetic, pretty pastel shades and funky florals creep in here and there. Romantic rose designs, retro gingham patterns and nautical stripes can add an authentic feel. When designing your Coastal Granddaughter-themed room, combine neutral fabrics in the form of jute rugs and wicker baskets with pastel pink linen throws and blue and white floral bedding and blankets.
Roll with Rustic Accessories

In order to incorporate this trend into your home, it’s wise to avoid loud and brash-coloured accessories and instead stick to muted hues to create the low-key, laid-back vibe you want to create. Rope accents, sea glass and drift help to create the coastal beachy aesthetic. A jute headboard can really help to tie in the theme. Fresh flowers in stone vases and vessels add the perfect finishing touch. Wicker or bamboo storage adds an equally on-trend vibe.
Let us talk you through the key takeaways of this new interior trend:
Keep it Cute and Curated
This trend is all about a clean and minimalistic aesthetic but it’s also trendy and modern. The overall aesthetic is relaxed yet put together which you can create using soft furnishings and accessories like pastel-coloured linen bedding or curtains that have that elegant yet relaxed and lived-in texture.
Luxurious Yet Low Key
There is nothing glamourous about this trend, it’s cosy, comfortable and paired back. The Coastal Granddaughter has a killer skincare routine with minimal makeup so it makes sense that her living environment would be equally as fresh, youthful and feminine.
Vintage Florals Throughout
You can inject instant Coastal Granddaughter vibes into your interiors by dotting vintage floral prints throughout your space. Think blue and white Chinoiserie ceramics and vases of blue and white hydrangeas placed thoughtfully in key rooms.
