Enjoy your beach house update with these easy breezy design tips.
1. Ocean Hues
Aqua blue tones give a feeling of being by the ocean. Wether you paint the walls or toss in a few aqua accents this is easily acheived.
Rattan, wicker, driftwood and seagrass are a few examples of textures that can be found in vacation beach houses. Mix in a few rattan chairs or anchor your space with a great coastal seagrass area rug to bring in an island touch.
3. Coastal Lighting
Unique nautical chandeliers or bathroom sconces with a sea inspired design add ambiance and vacation beach house essence to any space.
4. Slipcover Furniture
Comfy, coastal and casual slipcover furnishings will make any space feel like you're on summer vacation everyday.
5. Coastal Art
Driftwood seahorses, island maps, coral prints, there are so many choices to add a beach house touch to your walls.
6. Outdoor Living
7. Vacation Style Bedrooms
Make each bedroom in your home feel like it belongs in a resort. Soft slipcovered or upholstered headboards and seaside bedside chests are a great start. Comy costal designs are inviting to guests and will give your home that vacation feel.
8. Beach Towels, Pillows & Throws
9. Seaside Treasures
Treasures like seashells and sea life decor that look like you found them along the seashore adds beach house life to your decor.
10. Nautical Inspired Accents
Ship and ocean related nautical accents add that little extra touch to any decor. Keep it simple and don't go overboard, a single ship oar, ship lantern or a cluster of sea glass balls will be just enough to add a nautical vacation home vibe.
