Interior Design Trends: The Coastal Grandmother

The “coastal grandmother” TikTok trend has people obsessed with everything linen, ocean hued, and cozy. The old money, east coast proper trend has many revamping their fashion, listening to old Natalie Cole songs, and swapping out their patterned prints for old button-downs. 

The coastal grandmother trend also has many rethinking the interior of their homes. The coastal design is commonly mistaken for a nautical theme, but the two styles differ quite a bit. While nautical design captures sailing imagery, coastal design better represents the laid-back style of a classic seaside cottage. This week, we rounded up five staples you can add to your home for a touch of the timeless style encapsulating the coastal grandmother trend.
