Coastal Sophisticated Sectional

June 14, 2012

That’s what this look is referred to as by many, coastal sophisticated.  Why would I bring it up today you may ask, well today I’m having one of my recent projects shot by a professional photographer and the look is, well… costal sophisticated.  It’s a mix of transitional furnishings, some modern some tradtional, all in a warm earthy palette of neutrals and blues ( think sand and sky ).  To me the coastal  look embodies a casual relaxed vibe and little rustic or textural.  Color palettes can be all over the map but think sunny days and cocktails on the screened porch at sunset.

These sectional sofas have all be styled differently and they range in style… from track arm to english arm to rolled arm.  A few of these sofas have T cushions ( where the seat cushion wraps in from of the arm) others do not, but all are casual in their fabric and comfortable looking pieces.  Interesting none are skirted,  sofas (and chairs) all have exposed legs to keep the look light and fresh.

I think all of the rooms in this blog are well done and suit the coastal look quite well.  Ottomans as coffee tables seems to be a strong trend running though most of the pictures. There are few patterns, no prints or florals, wide stripes and texture are the look here.

 I have to get to the store early and pull accessories and a few extra pillows to fluff the room were shooting.   Typically clients love this day because it really is the icing on the cake day.  They get to see the room go from being done to finished, if you know what I mean.  Accessories are really what set the mood and finish a space, I like to make sure they speak to the clients and who they are but they also have to be right for the house and room.

Hopefully I’ll have a proof in the next few days to share with you all.  Thanks – as always – for stopping by and checking out BILLblog.  Have a great day!
