If you covet coastal-inspired decor but are concerned about your home appearing seasonally stagnant, no worries. Our favorite shoreside homes rely on earthy classics to capture that casual but chic beach-house aesthetic. We'll show you 10 pieces to scoop up this Spring and Summer to decorate with through Fall and beyond.

Stonewashed linen bedding [3] ($45-$219, originally $59-$279) looks especially beachy when paired with sandy neutrals. We'd transition the look for Fall by layering a kantha quilt or a faux-fur throw.

If you're pining for grasscloth-covered walls but don't want to commit, consider getting your grasscloth in another form: a mirror. This Parsons Floor Mirror [4] ($499) will visually expand your room while adding that coveted coastal aesthetic.

The versatility of a white slipcovered sofa should never be underestimated. Switch out throw pillows and add a chunky knit throw for an instant Fall update. At this price, you can't go wrong with the Ellyson Sofa's [5] ($699) classic shape.

Since capiz shell chandeliers scream glamorous beach house, consider this pendant light [6] ($690) that has floral and metallic detail.

We're imagining these rope handles [7] ($12-$14) being added to jewel-toned furniture for a less-obvious nod to nautical decor.

These Marble and Wood Serving Boards [8] ($48-$198) look incredible propped on a countertop when they aren't being used.

White curtains have a classic yet slightly romantic characteristic that allows them to pair perfectly with everything from grasscloth-covered to boldly painted walls. We like the snappy silver hardware on this white grommet curtain [9] ($70-$100).

Jute rugs are nothing new, but this diamond-patterned version [10] ($195-$945) feels sophisticated enough for city living.

For a less-literal spin on sea glass, try adding these Recycled Glass Balloon Vases [11] ($79) on a table or mantel.

Chunky and textural, this roomy rope basket [12] ($90) is perfect for holding your magazine collection or extra throws.
