You don’t have to live by the beach in order to create a beach style home. If you love the beach but live far from it, you can still create an inviting space that makes you feel like you’re at the beach. With some simple furnishings and home decor you can create the perfect beach home, no matter where you live.
Beach Vibes in Your Home
When you think of the beach you think of light blue sea, fresh air and seagulls. The first step to creating your oasis is by adding light furniture. Choose living room sets that are either white, cream or blue. If you don’t have the budget to replace your dark leather couch, get sofa covers instead. Pick something that is washable and light in color. If you have pets and small kids choose darker blues or even navy. Add lighter accents such as nautical pillows and other white accents. Decorative pillows are a great way to showcase your love for the ocean and create the perfect beach home.
If you want to feel like you’re in a home by the beach, add art that states that. Add wall art that shows the beach, shells or even a boat. Make sure that the artwork isn’t too colorful or overpowers the space. Don’t add just one piece add multiple art works around your home that showcase similar scenery to bring cohesiveness to your space.
When you think beach you think nautical. Adding a few nautical pieces around your home will make it feel like you’re a true beach house. Place nautical lamps on your side tables or choose a nautical wall clock.
When creating the perfect beach home go for subtle colors such as light blues, grays, whites and cream or sand. Be sure to make your home flow by adding similar pieces and color schemes throughout the space.
