Opt For Casual Shutters

Install wood shutters in a dining room instead of drapery to keep the room relaxed.

Wood shutters are a staple for casual, seaside style. When open, they invite plenty of sunshine; closed, they keep interiors cool. Shiny terracotta floor tiles add Mediterranean warmth, while a raw-wood pedestal table and X-back chairs slip-covered in linen add to the cottage theme.

For more beachy and nautical rooms, see our Seaside-Inspired Interiors photo gallery.
