Firstly, what is the coastal grandma aesthetic? Well, the coastal grandmother look embraces all the little things that make a house feel like home — herbs on the kitchen windowsill, bowls of fruit, fresh flowers, plenty of books, cozy slipcovered furniture and an abundance of natural light. The neutral colour palette of light blues, off whites and seafoam greens make the home feel fresh and relaxed and allows you to adopt a leisurely lifestyle, even if you do not live by the coast! To help you in decorating your own home to look like a Nancy Meyers film set, we have put together a selection of products you need so you can experience the lighter way of living!
