Whether you are decorating a beach house or just want to add a beach feel to your home for the summer, there are some easy and cool ways to do it. Don’t go into old fashioned solutions like a combination of coral and turquoise, marine animals and the like, instead try really cool and contemporary options that add visual appeal to your home. I am ready to share it with you!
Forget about nautical color schemes, white is the new black! White is always a good idea in any home as it gives a refreshing feel. The clear appearance will brighten the room and make it look even bigger. Also, consider other neutrals to make the look more eye-catching, 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 the decor later while keeping some neutral colors to go with any style.
Wicker furniture is known to be popular outdoors. However, to create a beach feeling inside, bring them indoors! Put some wicker chairs around your dining table, put wicker baskets or boxes here and there for storage, add wicker baskets to your living room and bedroom, and try wicker trailers anywhere you want, and voila – your home has become beach-like!
We are used to seeing mostly wood in beach houses which adds warmth and is reminiscent of driftwood. But for a bold, modern look, you can opt for tiles that are 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 it yourself and decorate each room with a beach-inspired piece of art 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 on. Get inspired!
