Your Home in North Carolina: ideas for coastal outdoor decor

Coastal outdoor decor is the trend of choice for waterfront homes in southeastern coastal North Carolina. Outdoor decor usually blends natural textures and natural fibers with nautical or seaside-themed decor for a look that is laid-back and well-suited to resort style living.
This decor theme is popular for coastal style living rooms, but is easy to adapt for outdoor living spaces by using the same elements, color schemes, and lifestyle sensibility to create a welcoming outdoor oasis.
