The cool blue waters and the fine white sand of US beaches just give people a sense of calm while staring at the horizon. This is exactly why people flock to them. Well, for many people who live along coastlines, they are quite lucky to be able to see that kind of beauty every day.
Now, if you are one of those who don’t live anywhere in plain sight of a beach or even a few minute’s drive away, you can bring in the coast to your home. Yes, with décor that reflects the beauty and calmness of the beach, you can somehow get the feeling of being in the beach without having to exert too much effort to get somewhere sandy.
So, here are tips on how you can create a summery feel inside your home.
- Keep it simple - Yes, it is important not to overdo the whole beach theme. You can put a few sea- theme accent pieces on a center table or your shelves. Don’t crowd these spaces with too many accents. For instance, you can decorate a white room with a shell chandelier. The material of the chandelier definitely conveys the theme that you want to create.
- Use soft colors and beach-related textures - For instance, your room may be painted blue-green to imitate the cool color of the ocean. Beige raffia accents will mimic the soft sand. When you look at a room with this color scheme, you will instantly be reminded of the cool beaches.
- Add tropical accents to your living space - By tropical, it means you can use gauze curtains that will allow light to filter into your home. Plus, using bamboo stools or chairs can give your living room a tropical, beach- side feel. Just be careful not to go overboard, as already mentioned.
- Use red, white and blue - The classic colors of red, white and blue can give your home the beach feel that you want to create. For this, you can use a striped red- and-white rug as the focal point of the room. You can then put several navy blue accents on your tabletop or shelves.
In short, with the right décor, you can bring the beach to your home even though you don’t get to smell fresh sea breeze every day.
