Start With the Details
One of the best ways to make your home feel like it’s on the beach is to decorate with coastal objects. Seashells, driftwood, and sand are all easy ways to bring the coast to your home. Search for driftwood photo frames to display your favorite photos in or fill a few vases with sand for a neutral decor piece that offers plenty of texture, height, and coastal feels. You can also decorate a table, bookshelf, or ledge with an assortment of larger seashells to add even more of a coastal feel to your home.
When considering the beach, think about the different textures and feelings that you get when walking along the shore. One of the best aspects of enjoying time spent at the beach are the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Bring that same feeling of diffused, soft light to your home by adding gauzy, thin curtains to your bedrooms. These delicate curtains will help your home feel romantic with diffused, soft light, which will bring back special memories of waking up in the early hours of the morning to the gentle sounds of waves.
Bring in Natural Elements
Try adding a neutral woven cotton or jute rug to your living room to mimic the color of sand in your home for a practical but coastal touch. Straw, natural wood, and wicker are also excellent choices for that beachy vibe. A natural wood coffee table paired with a straw chair or rocker will bring that comfortable, relaxed feeling to your home, and can complement a wide array of other design elements and styles.
Don’t Forget Flowers and Plants
One of the best ways that you can make your home feel like a vacation home is to add flowers and plants. Neutral, wildflowers will make your home feel beautiful and relaxed, while houseplants will bring an element of nature to every room. Try potting your plants in stoneware pots or woven baskets to stay on the beachy theme throughout your home.
While we can’t all spend every day at the beach, you can bring the coast to your home by using these design tips. If you’re ready to make your home feel like a beachy oasis, shop CeCe and Me now!
