The Coastal Grandmother Aesthetic: A Cousin to The Shop’s Current Garden Party Collection

Originating from Tiktok influencer, Lex Nicoleta, the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic is for anyone “who loves Nancy Meyers movies, coastal vibes, recipes and cooking, Ina Garten, and cozy interiors”. That is us!

Creating a cozy interior during the summertime can be difficult for many of us since we often associate cozy with warmth. But don’t worry, check out our 3 tips for creating a cozy interior during the summer AND some of Coastal Grandmother inspired pieces currently at The Shop to help create that cozy feeling!

3 Tips for Creating Cozy Interiors During the Summer:

  1. Bring outdoor elements inside— using different types of vases to hold fresh or fake flowers/greenery is a great way to make your home feel cozy during the summer season. P.S.If you don’t want to splurge on flowers - use lemons & limes to add a summer twist.
  2. Replace the heavier blankets/throws in your house with lighter weight ones and change out a throw pillow or two with summer colors/patterns! And don’t forget to swap out your sheets for lighter ones.
  3. One of the best parts of summer is that the sun is out for longer and we all get to experience more daylight. With that, overhead lighting can be extra harsh on top of the additional sun rays. Lamps can be a great addition to our homes to help them feel cozy in the summertime. Already using lamps at home? Consider changing out the lampshades to change up your space for the summer season.
