Coastal Inspired Decor
Add nautical stripe print
Blue and white nautical stripe print adds a fresh touch to your space. You can add a striped throw to your sofa or bed or add a large striped rug for your living room. A simple striped ottoman or a footstool is a great addition that ties your theme together.
Add pale shades of sand
Blue is the most significant colour when it comes to beach-inspired décor, but you can surely go for other shades and still curate a stylish space. To give a summery touch to your interiors, you can go for pale shades of sand like ivory, beige, cream and soft pink.
Add some rattan, wicker, or sisal texture
Materials like sisal, seagrass and rattan add texture and coastal vibes to space instantly. Usually, woven wicker chairs are inexpensive and very durable, and the pale natural colour adds a cool feature.
Add whitewashed accents
Adding whitewash stained furniture and accents to your room gives a pale and natural coastal vibe. A monochromatic white look with pale wood shades brightens the space.
The beach has an aura of freshness and earthy vibes in it. To complete the look, your space must smell like a piece of seashore too. Aromas have the power to lift your mood and transport you straight to your favourite spot. Add candles or diffusers that remind you of sunny days at the beach or the refreshing cold drinks from the shack.
Decorating beach-style space on a budget
Good news for those who are keen on transforming their space into a seaside-inspired area, it can be achieved on a budget, and it’s easy.
Choose a colour
White is usually a prominent and go-to colour in a coastal-style home, but there are more options. You can opt for hues of blue or shades of sand to keep the space cool and natural-looking.
Choose D.I.Y. accessories
Accessories can elevate a room from plain and straightforward to fancier and lively, and they help you capture the theme through objects. Go for natural things like twigs and seashells to give an organic clue.
Choose slipcovers and soft furnishings
Slipcovers can be used to transform shabby furniture into a chic and timeless one, and it can be achieved without costing a fortune to you. Look for muslin or osnaburg fabric which is less expensive than linen or canvas.
Keep it open
A coastal-inspired space is usually kept simple with a minimalist style of designing. Choose pieces that reflect light and make it look spacious. Add mirrors or mirrored furniture, chrome or silver, glass and lightweight and cool linen, muslin, or cotton colours.
On the last note…
You don’t have to necessarily be adjacent to the ocean to have a coastal-theme designed home. All you have to do is select the right colours and textures, and Voila! You have the calmest and serene space ever.
If you are an ocean-holic who loves strolling on the beach and getting sand on your toes, you will surely love a living space that just reminds you of sunny beach days or breezy evenings by the shore! Only a small effort from your side and an even smaller amount of dough can help you create a space that turns every day into a summer vacation getaway!
