It doesn’t have to be all seashells and sand when it comes to manifesting your favorite beach haven into your living space.
Incorporating a comfortable yet chic beach vibe into your home décor can be simple, and the results are relaxing and timeless. Avoid the flip flop wall art and opt for a chic look that will stand the test of time by incorporating these four elements.
COLOR. When choosing your color palate, go for cool tones as the main focus. Greys, whites and soft blues work best for a coastal vibe. Pick your favorite stand out warm tones for accents, like orange throw blankets, pink floral touches and patterned rugs.
LIGHTING. Romantic light can make a whole space come to life. Scatter vintage lanterns and round-bulb string lights throughout your space. The soft and warm light will play off your cool tones, making a lovely contrasted room you can’t wait to relax in.
AMBIANCE. To get that “hand-picked from the beach” look, choose weathered wood furniture to fill your space. Check out vintage shops for some unique pieces, or get crafty and paint the pieces yourself. You can find distressed paint primer or crackle paint primer at most paint stores.
DETAILS. Add the final touch by placing succulents in geometric pots to the tops of your accent tables and windowsills. The pop of green will add a sense of vibrant energy to your home. Choose nautical-themed throw pillows and art to finish the look.
