We love the easy, breezy nature of coastal design. If you want to add a touch of that classic coastal charm to your home—whether you’re designing an actual beach house or just want to infuse your space with some seaside vibes—hanging a coastal mirror is an easy way to do this. Coastal mirrors are the perfect accents to crown a beachy room or add some laid-back charm to a space that’s otherwise not overly coastal.
Today, we’re sharing some of our designers’ favorite coastal mirrors, all of which are timeless pieces that will give any room some of that coastal charm! (And hopefully you’ll get some excellent coastal design ideas along the way!)
What makes a mirror look coastal?
If you’re looking for a coastal mirror, remember: it’s all about the materials. Natural materials, to be specific. Rattan, white-washed wood, teak, and cane are all popular materials used to create coastal mirrors. Want to get even more beachy? For beach mirrors, try a material that’s specifically associated with nautical life—like rope, shell, and driftwood.
Coastal mirrors also often use specific shapes. You’ll find a lot of round mirrors here! Why? Probably because they’re reminiscent of portholes on ships, which is nautical at its finest. You’ll also see some coastal mirrors with wavy frames, reminiscent of ocean waves.
Where to Shop for Coastal Mirrors
Many brands carry beautiful mirrors that have a coastal look and feel. There are several brands in the Modsy catalog that we love turning to, since they specialize in coastal-style decor—including Ludlow Living, Ashby Home, Aidyn Decor, Serena & Lily, The Phillips Collection, and Pottery Barn, to name a few!
Designer Picks: The Best Coastal Mirrors
Want to add a coastal mirror to your home’s decor? No need to scour the internet for the perfect coastal mirror! We polled our designers to get their take on the best of the best. (Because sometimes it really is better to have fewer, better options.) Here are their 11 favorite coastal mirror designs!
Sea Coral Coastal Mirror, Uttermost
This shapely mirror is good for more eclectic coastal spaces. The shape is irregular and is meant to mimic the organic shape and texture of coral reefs. (It also gives us some ocean wave vibes, if you’re looking for beach mirrors!) And the white finish is great for almost all color schemes—but looks particularly great with that classic blue-and-white coastal palette.
Bartholamew Live Edge 3D Mirror, Ludlow Living
This live-edge circular mirror is a celebration of natural materials and is good for giving a coastal space some global flair. The wavy frame has a 3D quality that adds more visual interest and depth to your walls than the average wall mirror. Since it’s smaller in size it can fit in tight spaces, and the teak finish adds texture and natural color to your walls.
Coastal Round Wall Mirror, Aidyn Decor
This is a classic coastal mirror if we’ve ever seen one! With a round shape and natural rope frame, it embodies a quintessential coastal style. This is a larger mirror, which makes it a great choice if you want to make a statement and add a bold impact on a wall. And we love that the neutral, natural color of the rope goes well with casual coastal decor.
Seia Wall Mirror, Precita Home
The carved wood detail of this mirror’s frame, which overlaps onto the reflective glass, adds a lot of visual interest and is perfect for a charming coastal style, or a home that mixes rustic and coastal designs. The classic rectangular shape makes this mirror versatile—while the detailing on the inside of the frame creates a dainty and unique look.
Palani Mirror Natural Rattan, Aidyn Decor
This fun and eye-catching round rattan mirror adds drama for a modern coastal space. Rattan, coiled in a large cone shape, makes a bold impact in any space and has a fun 3D effect, giving your modern coastal decor some dimension.
Bar Harbor Bone Inlay Mirror, Serena & Lily
What a beauty! This blue and white striped rectangular mirror embodies classic coastal style. We love this piece for a more formal Nantucket style home. A classic blue-and-white color scheme is elevated by a bone inlay design—which adds visual impact, texture, and unique pattern to any coastal space. If you’re looking for nautical mirrors with an elegant twist for your seaside cottage, this is just the thing.
Round Venster Mirror, Cyan Design
Looking for just a touch of coastal flair? This small, round mirror, hung by a leather strap, adds some nautical vibes to coastal, modern, and traditional spaces alike. This small nautical mirror offers thoughtful detail without overwhelming the wall space. Because of its size, it fits great in a gallery wall, but it can also stand alone as a small-but-impactful coastal detail in your space.
Halifax Wall Mirror, Ashby Home
This octagon-shaped mirror is large and makes a big impact on your wall. But it’s the weathered driftwood frame in a gray-washed patina that gives it subtle coastal vibes. (In fact, the shape is inspired by seaside cottage windows!) You can play up the coastal look with additional coastal or nautical decor—or let it bring just a touch of coastal style to a modern rustic space.

Melville Coastal Round Mirror, Uttermost
This is a fun, modern mirror with unique iron and rope detailing. A fresh take on a classic coastal design, this nautical mirror is perfect as a focal point over a console or fireplace because it’s large and makes a bold statement.
Syden Round Wall Mirror, Ludlow Living
With its mango wood frame, inset with rattan caning, this mirror adds a sophisticated touch to a coastal space—perfect for those who want to create a modern and fresh coastal design. Small but mighty, this mirror is great for small spaces. But those caning details add a ton of visual impact, along with some neutral organic texture.
Ramos Mirror, Ludlow Living
This round mirror with a starburst-style frame adds an eclectic and boho flair in a coastal space. Made from teak branches placed around a circular wooden frame, this mirror makes quite a statement. Not only that, but it adds natural texture and color that pops against a white wall.
