Beach House Style Decorating
There is a wide selection of beach decor and coastal furniture, any house can be a beach house, even if you’re nowhere near the gently lapping waves of the ocean. Touches of turquoise, eye-catching coral accessories, and subtle nods to seafaring creatures are the keys to achieving the cool calm of coastal decor. Who wouldn’t like a cozy beach house right by the sea or a charming lake house with calming views. Your beach style house should be welcoming, inviting, and calming. Whether you live by the beach or just dream about ocean breezes, enhance the natural beauty of your home with crisp white, splashes of bold color, and sea-themed accents.
Even if you are hours away from a coastline or if you are steps away from golden sand, bring the beach inside your home through rustic, sea-inspired decor. You can also choose a sunny palette like crisp whites combined with punches of bright colors that will transport you to the coast. An emphasis on color and light enhances a kitchen’s coastal feel. Don’t be afraid to use strong color in unexpected areas such as on your kitchen island. White cabinetry, and warm wood floors can balance a bright aqua if your home gets plenty of sunlight. A porch is a perfect place to try out some colors you normally would never consider. If painting your woodwork feels like too much, then just incorporate color with your furniture.
One of the ways to bring the beach inside your home is to decorate with beach themes objects or with beach themed items that you or your family has found, like shells at the beach. When thinking of beach style home, think shells, sea glass, driftwood, or greens. You can have a collage of framed photos, glass vases with colorful flowers, sea shells as well as candle lanterns which will all be reminiscent of life along the sea.
