Hello friends, and thank you so much for stopping by! Today I’m sharing our coastal farmhouse dining room styled with decor for summer. Cream hydrangeas, beachy coral, wooden beads, and botanical prints make this space feel airy and fresh for the season. I hope you find this post inspiring if you are decorating your dining room for summer, and you’ll have to let me know which piece is your favorite!

Coastal Farmhouse Dining Room Inspiration

As you can probably tell, one of my main inspirations for this summery space is the beach. Coastal decor holds a special place in my heart since my family traveled to the Outer Banks, North Carolina for a week every summer starting in my tween years. I don’t think any other type of vacation is quite as restful and sweet as a beach trip! We read books, worked on crossword puzzles, and generally embraced the term “beach bum.”

Secondly, a natural woven tray anchors the coastal theme of the room. I found the vase, wire bottles, coral figurine, woven tray, and cream hydrangeas all at Hobby Lobby on sale. I’ve loved the look of wood bead garlands for a while, and finally realized I could make my own!

Dining Room Botany Wall Art

Thirdly, these gorgeous botany prints are public domain images that Lauren at Bless’er House discovered! She has a wonderful tutorial up on her blog where she explains how to print, frame, and hang them in your home. I used the same frames she lists, except that I ordered them in “gray” instead of “honey.”

Coastal Farmhouse Dining Room Decor

Our dining room sat empty for many months after we moved in this January, and I didn’t want to spend a lot on decor right away. I made this quote scroll myself using a Kraft paper roll, twine, and a Sharpie. Check out my calligraphy sign tutorial to learn how to write your own quote art for fall or the holidays!

This straw hat has a special meaning to me because it was crafted in Williamsburg, a place my family also visited during the summers. These memories are interwoven with those of salty breeze since we often stopped on the way to the beach, and my sister and I bought matching hats. So, it seemed like a perfect fit for our coastal dining room! I finished off this vignette with a few olive branches and a DIY book bundle.

Dining Room Meets Playroom

Finally, I wanted to share that our dining room doubles as a playroom for Bug! So, the cube organizer against the wall helps coral toys and books, many of which I removed before taking photos 😉

We enjoy having a separate dining room apart from our breakfast nook, even if it seems a little impractical with all of the toys. There is something special about adjourning to a separate room to have a meal–it allows you to escape the everyday hustle and bustle of the kitchen and focus on good food and friends.
