Those warm summer breezes are not too far away. Time to brighten up your home with some lighter pieces. As an interior designer who lives on New England's coastline, I get a lot of requests for coastal chic decor. If you love the aesthetic but are a country or city dweller, I'm here to show you how to channel this aesthetic without it looking out of place or screaming nautical.

QVC has a bevy of beach-worthy decor from accents to furniture — view the videos to see them in action — and they offer lots of great discounts on their already competitive prices. The retailer even has an interest-free Easy Pay program so you can space out your spending. That means you can enjoy your upgraded decor now in the warmer months and not pay it off until autumn. Plus, if you're a first-time QVC shopper, you can grab an extra $10 off with code SURPRISE.

So take advantage of these great deals, and stick those heavy knits and drapery in storage. It's time to open the window to the world of coastal design.

A good chunky basket is a must, and they work in a variety of ways in most rooms of your home. In the bath or hall closet they hold laundry, in the living room they harbor throw blankets and books, in your entry they house shoes, umbrellas, you name it. Get creative with this 13-inch basket — for example, hide that ugly plastic container holding your palm tree here, and it's a charming planter. Nothing says "coastal" like natural rattan, wicker or grass fibers. I'm loving this braided basket weave.

An important key to good design is mixing materials. It's why a completely neutral room can look amazing — it's all about the texture and finishes. These capiz shell lamps are a great way to introduce a reflective, rich-looking material that evokes both beach vibes and sophistication, so they're equally appropriate in the city. These mother-of-pearlescent lamps will draw the eye, gleaming with their natural variation. The price for this pair can't be beat at just over $80 a lamp. So dress up those side tables or nightstands with these shell-adorned lamps for some glam.
