"Longing for sandy days in the tropics and evenings on the East Coast, Interior Stylist and all-around creative force Lynda Quintero-Davids went beach-combing on 1stdibs. Inspired by the seaside outposts of classic designers such as Ralph Lauren and Barclay Butera, she assembled a breezy, sun-kissed collection that perfectly conveys the coastal lifestyle."
While visiting the pinboard Coastal Style, people are sure to be inspired, but it can also be a little overwhelming. To further help people visualize the Coastal Lifestyle pins, I also created a few lifestyle boards. Here's a screenshot of a portion of coastal style pins...
One of the many items I was crushing on while combing through all the beautiful pieces at 1stdibs was this Regency Gilt-wood Convex Mirror - Circa 1815
I used the porthole style of the convex mirror as part of my inspiration to look through some of the fabulous fine jewelry and vintage dresses on their site. I spotted some gorgeous lapis azules stones paired with gold and a bold blue Salvatore Ferragamo silk animal print gown (as seen on Jennifer Lopez!) Inspired by the blues, whites and gold combination, I created a lifestyle board called Coastal Couture Blues...

One of my original inspirations to pull together blue + white + gold + natural came from iconic American designers such as Barclay Butera and Ralph Lauren...

Coastal Style, however, need not all only be done in shades of blue and white. Even the most classic black & white combination can have a more Traditional - Hamptons coastal style, while a mix of vintage accents and chippy painted woods can reflected a more rustic & relaxed coastal style. Luckily, 1stdibs has both looks to choose from...
Traditional Style - Hamptons Coastal Couture
Relaxed Coastal Style
Both above coastal lifestyle boards I created were inspired by sailing off the east coast.
Along with being grateful for the invite from 1stdibs, I LOVE the way 1stdibs created a quote pin for our Coastal Style board. When I was invited to pin, I was also asked to give them a quote about my personal style and one about what makes shopping at 1stdibs special.
There are so many beautiful pieces pinned and TONS more on their site (I could get lost on there for hours!) but rather than keep on sharing here in this post, it's probably better if you see the pins for yourself. Stop by and visit the Coastal Style board
