Coastal Décor for Winter

Winter is coming! Living in Florida, that may not mean too much to you. But it can be meaningful with a little imagination! Make winter known in your home through seasonal coastal décor! In our coastal home, winter becomes less about the hot sunshine and more about the chilled air and holiday spirit!

At Dolphin Carpet & Tile, we love the beach just as much as you do. So we want to give you some tips to carry that coastal love through with seasonal décor!

Color Scheme

When you picture the beach, you think of blues and tans and maybe some yellows. But in the winter, it’s better to focus still on blues but also whites and grays. Of course you can add in some greens and reds especially with the holiday season just around the corner.

To start, you would want lighter washed flooring, nothing too dark. Keeping the floors lighter will keep the rooms brighter, just like you imagine it would be at the beach.

A light Alfredo tile from Dolphin Carpet & Tile would perfectly mock the sand color at the beach creating the perfect start to a coastal décor.

Another good option would be the Tucana Coretec Plus Enhanced Slim Plank from our Luxury Vinyl catalog.

At Dolphin Carpet & Tile, we have many more color schemes, designs and styles to choose from that will fit in perfectly to start your winter décor.


To go with the lighter color scheme, some nautical pillows and chairs would be the ideal look for your coastal winter.

Preparing for the Holidays

Not only is winter a time for lighter colors schemes, it’s also a time to get in the holiday spirit and you can do it all by remaining coastal! From wall décor to area rugs even down to the ornaments on a tree, let’s keep this holiday season at the beach.

Starting with a simple wall décor, a cute and fun palm tree with a sign saying “seas and greetings!” How clever!

Let your beliefs be known through holiday décor, because I think we can all agree, life is most definitely better at the beach!
