Beautiful palettes make for some of the most inviting and fun beach themed home interior decoration styles. The most inviting colors for a beach themed style in the home include hues of green, blue, and sandy tones such as tans and beige. Beach themed home décor is simple, chic and easy to create. If you are fortunate enough to live close to the beach, you can even create some beach styles on a budget just by taking a stroll along the sand and using the treasures that you find along the way in some of your home interior decoration items.
Seashells and Sand
Beach themed interior decoration can easily be created with the use of store bought seashells and sand or with similar items that you find on your own local beach. Consider making table centerpieces using flat candle holders that have sand on top with seashells sitting in the sand. Seashells can also be used to create picture frames, to hang on the walls around a mirror or doorway or to sit along plant shelves.
For a bathroom, consider creating a wall hanging that uses an old fisherman’s net or a store purchased net that hangs across the wall. You can then add seashells, starfish, and other sea themed items to the net to create a unique wall hanging that will add appeal to the bathroom.
For the colors of a beach themed home interior decoration style, consider sea foam green, light blue, aqua, and similar colors. Light, earthy tones can easily be contrasted with bright colors such as corals, pinks, oranges or dark blues. A seaside theme will often include the use of varied tones of blue offset by a bright color such as a coral tone. Instead of painting the ways with such a bold tone, consider using throw pillows or textured fabrics that include these hues.
Beach themed home interior decoration should include the use of soft, flowing textures throughout the room or the home. Curtains made of twill or a similar light fabric will add a light and airy texture. Consider other similar soft, subtle textured fabrics for the furniture in the room. Many beach themes also incorporate the use of rattan or wicker into the design. Even a simple side table or sofa table made from rattan can really add a sense of the beach to the room.
Beach themed home decoration is contingent on having an open, airy and lighted feel. Every beach cottage or beach home includes a great openness that allows the natural sunlight to shine in. If the room or home that you are creating the beach look in doesn’t include natural sunlight consider making some lighting changes to ensure that there is a feel of nature indoors. Warm, soft lighting that is bright can make a room feel more open and fun while subtle lighting on plant shelves, bookcases and in other areas can also add appeal to special items, books or similar elements of the room that should be recognized.
