Don’t let the name fool you. You don’t have to be a grandmother or live on the beach to embrace the newest design trend sweeping Instagram, Tiktok, and homes this summer. Coastal grandmother is an aspirational style that centers around being effortless stylish in a comfortable way, being put together without trying too hard, and having an appreciation for finer things while still feeling very approachable. Coined by influencer Lex Nicoleta, a coastal grandmother is anyone who “loves Nancy Meyers movies, coastal vibes, recipes and cooking, Ina Garten, and cozy interiors.”
Our team has long been a fan of the luxe, but cozy interiors seen in Nancy Meyers movies (think Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated, Father of the Bride, and Home Again). I mean who wouldn’t want to live in linen and cashmere while spending their days shopping at farmer’s markets and drinking a glass of wine in their all-white kitchen? But it’s about more than just a pretty house. It speaks to a lifestyle we are all craving right now – one of comfort, ease, relaxation, and simple luxuries.
So we have gathered up some beautifully lived-in spaces that perfectly embody the coastal grandmother aesthetic to inspire you this summer…
