To keep things sophisticated and understated, stick with a specialty décor shop that carries more refined styles. For instance, a brown, tan, or white couch looks amazing with a set of coastal burlap throw pillows. These meticulously hand-stitched treasures add interesting texture and a bit of masculine charm that’s so essential to a maritime feel. Now, if your space boasts more vibrant colors in yellow, pink, or bright blue, avoid coarse textures. Soften things with a couple of hand hooked seahorse pillows with a daring pop of orange.

These durably constructed—and handcrafted—pillows are the same ones our grandmothers made and displayed in their summer homes.
