A beach house is something we all dream of, especially on a hot summer day. Not having one is not the end of the world. And if you cannot shake that desire, there are several ways in which you can bring the sea to you.
Here are 10 tips that can help you turn your home into a tropical beach:
Some things are more suggestive than clams. So, if you want the feeling that you are at a beach house, display shells on your shelf. A good place for this decoration is the hallway or, for that matter, the wall separating the kitchen from the open floor plan.
Decorate the living room with clams to balance the colors and dark finish. You can even use it to create contrast if you have a fireplace for example.
Turn shells into works of art. Frame them and display them on the walls of your room. They will look great on white walls with accent lighting.
Sailboats are also very expressive, if you like to collect them or make models, why not put them on display too? Decorate your living room, hallway, or bedroom.
Blue and white accents
Don’t forget the color. White is not a very expressive color but combined with blue, this color will give your house a breezy look that is usually specifically for breaking through homes. Complete the white room with blue lamp shades or decorative pillows.
The light blue color used as a color accent will make the room feel bright and airy. There are many ways to introduce color into a room: curtains, decorations, artwork, or furniture.
Create beach decorations for your living room with burlap carpets. They have very specific textures and colors and you can also choose to complement them with matching furniture and accessories.
What better way to bring beaches and oceans to you than with actual paintings from these places? Decorate your living room or bedroom with them and enjoy other decorations related to the beach.
Wrapped in a rope
If you want to have beach-inspired decorations then think about the elements that are usually found in these houses, elements like ropes. Wrap the chandelier with a rope and add a wicker chair.
How beautiful the rope grip on the stairs. This is an outstanding accent feature, which is not only for beach houses but for modern or rustic decorations in general.
If you have large, thick beams in your house, one way to make it look beautiful is to wrap it in the string. This is a simple trick, especially useful if you like beach decorations.
Palm tree in the Beach house
If you can bring nature inside, then do it. Plant a palm tree in the middle of your living room and the whole house will get a tropical look.
