What is Coastal Collective Co. all about?
This site is personal blog to share my passion for all things coastal with a focus on home design and sharing outfit ideas. My hope is to inspire people to live a life they love by choosing items for their home that are both functional and make them proud to call their place home.
While I do occasionally share my own home and personal style, it is important to me that this blog be about giving people ideas and suggestions and not a place where I'm telling you about all the things I just got and how you NEED them now. For this reason, you'll see a lot of home and style "boards" like the ones below.
In addition to blog posts, there are sections on the site where I have curated my favorite home, fashion, and lifestyle items for visitors looking for inspration and ideas in there own lives. These are pieces that I personally would use in my own home, wear for an occasion, etc. I don't believe in having and buying an excessive amount for our family's lifestyle, so this site isn't all about me and my home and life, but a love of the coast and my particular style of decorating and living day to day.
I love creating which often extend to home design boards, a makeover of a space in our personal home, a diy project, a new recipe, building something, painting something, or pairing distressed jeans with a beautiful top and accessories for a night out on the waterfront. I love it all and I love to share, often on Facebook or Instagram!
Why do you love the coast so much?
My husband Michael and I both grew up in Western Washington [USA], close to the water and within minutes of Puget Sound. We are an active Pacific Northwest loving family that enjoys time east in the mountains and as much time as we can on the water enjoying the local islands and fishing for salmon and crab. We have three kids and currently live in a little fixer upper beach house on the water - there are plenty of projects to tackle, and we're taking it one step at a time! It is a blessing we don't take for granted and enjoy taking in the view and going on beach walks as a family as much as possible.
How often do you share new content?
As a wife and mom to three kiddos, they are my priority. I share new content almost daily on the home page with design and style posts, and blog about larger home makeovers, design tips, or style blog posts whenever possible but no more than 3 days a week.
