From neutral-colored linen pants, button-up shirts, cozy sweaters, and comfortable-yet-chic loafers, the coastal grandmother trend is showing no signs of slowing down.

And while dressing in this aesthetic is perfect for the summer months, what many are missing out on is the opportunity to extend the coastal grandmother look to the home.
Sara Dahl, owner of Dahlhaus Design Co says the coastal grandmother aesthetic is all about casual but thoughtful pieces that are not solely for decoration, but are intended to be used frequently. “These pieces are well-made, have a timeless design, and the materials are those found in nature – cotton, linen, seagrass, wood and clay,”
