Whether you’re decorating a beach house or just want to add a beachy feel to your home for the summer, there are some easy and cool ways to do it. Don’t go for old-fashioned solutions like a combination of coral and turquoise, sea creatures and the like, try really cool and contemporary options that add visual appeal to your home. I’m ready to share it with you!
Forget nautical color schemes, white is the new black! White is always a good idea in any home as it gives off a refreshing feel. The clean appearance will brighten up the room and make it appear even larger. Consider other neutral colors to make the look more striking, or add wicker and wood elements here and there. White is always a win-win idea, and if it’s your usual home, you can change up the decor later while keeping some neutral colors to match any style.
Wicker furniture is very popular outdoors. However, to create a beachy feel inside, bring them indoors! Place some wicker chairs around your dining table, place wicker baskets or boxes here and there for storage, add wicker baskets to your living room and bedroom, and try wicker pendants wherever you want, and voila – your home has become beachy!
We’re used to seeing mostly wood in beach houses, which adds warmth and is reminiscent of driftwood. However, for a bold, modern look, you can opt for tiles inspired by the sea and beaches. They are atypical and immediately indicate the sea.
Any type of art is the easiest way to add a touch of the style you want, and it’s totally budget-friendly. You can find something you like or make your own and decorate each room with beach-inspired artwork or create an entire gallery wall. Use your favorite beach pictures to create relaxing gallery walls, try unique ideas – creative driftwood artwork, pebble artwork or a chalk surfboard to leave messages. Get inspired!
