If you’re feeling like having a beach vibe in your home, you can easily decorate it to make it designed like a beach house in no time. Making your interior feel like you’re living at the beach, or perhaps making it match the beach you already live at, is simple to do.
Whether you live on the coast or not, beach theme homes are really popular because they exude relaxing vibes, beautiful colors and you’ll feel like your home is a vacation home. While beach themes were once only found in bathrooms, you can now make your whole home feel like a vacation home. Here is a look at some tips for the beach lover at heart that wants to transform their home.
Colors and Textures
A good place to start is to learn the colors that will make sense in your beach-themed home. You’re going to want to choose beachy color schemes which are mostly made up of neutrals. Blues and greys will bring the ocean and sky to your home’s décor. If that doesn’t excite you, consider going a bold route with turquoise blues, greens and adding in whites to make it tropical and beachy.
Coordinate those colors with something neutral on the walls, in the rug or in the artwork. Consider patterns like navy blue on white with distressed rope patterns or knotted netting. Worn finishes and soft fabrics are key.
Elements to Incorporate
You may want to narrow down between a beach theme that feels relaxing and airy verses a nautical-theme or tropical paradise. This is where you’ll need to choose between the distressed rope patterns with striped navy blue and white or the bold turquoise and greens or a neutral blue and grey room. Add in elements like woven baskets, soft linens, sisal area rugs and plan wood flooring.
Distressed painted finishes, sandy-colored neutrals and design elements like starfish and anchors will make it look beachy quickly. Aged metals and weathered wood are perfect. Consider rounded stones and pebbles in your accessories. Choose furniture and accessories with wicker, linen, sea shells, fishing gear, old maps, driftwood pieces, rope, and weathered-wood finishes. Consider ivory, gray, deep red, and slate blue in your colors.
Use these tips to turn your home into a beach getaway.
