Whether you live by the beach or often daydream about ocean breezes, you can enhance the natural beauty of your home with a white palette, splashes of bold color, and sea-themed accents.
The beauty and the enchantment of that living room or bedroom draped in a perfect coastal look brings us closer to achieving the beach life.
The best way to achieve this is be inspired by the beach. An all-white backdrop is the perfect way to get started with the coastal look. While other neutral colors also tend to work, you simply cannot go wrong with white.
If white is too stark, use beach-inspired shades like sandy beige, light cream, charcoal, off-whites or a very light yellow that inspires images of a sun-kissed beach at dawn! Refreshing light blues, cool aqua, light teal and turquoise are perfect additions as the accent shades that enliven the space.
Do not employ more than two accent colors and use sober oranges and deep coral shades to complement the cool blues with some warm hues.
A gauzy curtain diffuses daylight and makes a luminous backdrop for whatever you put in front of it—even a simple chair. The idea is to gracefully reveal (rather than conceal) the window, so a single panel is all you need. Pick a panel with generous length to create lush, romantic pooling on the floor.
Choosing furniture for a coastal styled room can be loads of fun. Décor crafted from natural fibers and organic materials serve you best in accentuating the coastal theme. Wickers tools, rattan furniture and beds with a natural oak frame fit perfectly when recreating a serene and tranquil setting.
A hammock creates a perfect napping nook that is a necessary element for the perfect resting and reading spot through fall.
