Beachy design brings to mind long lazy days at the beach... and it can add coziness and character to an inland house or flat and it does to a seaside cottage. If you're stuck in suburbia or the city for the summer, why not change your home's interior into the ideal place for a family stay-cation by adding a touch or two of chic? Along with fun factor and its beauty, beach house decor does not require a huge investment -- in actuality, it offers the ideal opportunity for you to store your house and show beach souvenirs off. Let us take a tour of the essential characteristics of the trend.
The most memorable shore homes are bright and breezy, often with not much more than a roof to protect occupants from the elements. To get a feeling, leave your windows open whenever 16, to let in sunlight and drape them. Put a traditionally beachy ceiling fan which will provide a breath of fresh air when the weather is becalmed (while using less power than A/C).
A Lot of glass. Invite more light in the rooms of your house with many different glass elements. A mirror as an instance, in a chic framework, enhance and will reflect light that is available; on facing walls 2 mirrors are better. Topping a desk is another way to make an impression. Emphasize your living room or kitchen with a whimsical chandelier that features loads of glass in an abstract or nautical-inspired layout -- or create your own out of repurposed bottles.
Soft, natural color. Close your eyes and picture the colors of this oceanside -- sky, aqua, seafoam, muddy gray, sand, and coral. Emphasizing these tints in natural colors will boost. Even basic is weathered or best scuffed as it plays a part in decor. Your walls are the basis of the appearance, and beachy colors are offered by paint businesses that are savvy, like Sherwin Williams' Coastal Cool lineup and the Sea Glass Green of Glidden.
Furniture. When choosing furniture for your beach home pad, you will have to do a little selective editing. Forget about the sofas which might have populated vacation cottages. Focus on timber distressed and painted or stained; refinishing wood furniture in-house style that is imperfect is an excellent job for a novice DIYer. Or craft a really unusual wooden mattress or bookcase from a salvaged rowboat. Bamboo and wicker will impart a tropical feel that is not only for patio furniture. To enjoy an island vacation, hang a hammock in your area. Embellish your furniture with fabric cotton upholstery and soft netting in seashell prints or palm leaf.
Accessories. (Collecting seashells and coral isn't a great idea -- it threatens the environment and is illegal in some places.) Plain beach sand can go glam; a mason jar fills top with a tea light and uses wire to hang. You may also add in nautical items: a ship's wheel or buoys as wall art tables -- or drinking glasses; and design ships.
