Imagine that your life is like a long vacation by the sea. White sands, sun, cool blue waves, cry of gulls and soul soothing breeze! But life is not like that right? So let’s see how we can bring the beach home…
Paint your room in soothing hues of blue. Broad horizontal stripes are very much in. Or opt for an all white room with natural tone cane or wooden furniture. Avoid any other color for maximum effect.
Now think of furnishing. Incorporate blue in curtains, drapes, rugs, bedding depending on your choice.
For those who love being surrounded by marine life, you can choose quilts or cushions with motifs of shells, crab, starfish and more!
Framed art that celebrates marine life is also a wonderful idea for your walls. Check out our beach themed photo frames too: http://tinyurl.com/beach-photo-frames
Did you know, how creative you can get with the headboard of your bed? Check out the one with the oars and the cushioned headboard with sailboat pattern in a teenager’s room! Also, don’t miss the sailor boy bedside lamps!
Artifacts like different kinds of corals or quaint models of sailboats can make you “feel at sea”. Instead of several separate show pieces, you can also go for a single large item that adds to the nautical miles…
A smart way of creating beach side serenity is adorning an entire wall of the room with enlarged digital prints like below. These can create the illusion of lazing by the sea, very effectively!
Mirrors can be used intelligently to showcase elements of the sea. See the one which has an arty frame made of dead branches. Or the one with a white frame and white crabs surrounding it…
For those who love fishing, just a large fish on the wall will look nice. In the second bedroom, note how the decor is slightly rustic in nature. We suggest you stick to using few colors and simple designs in such rooms.
Love sailing? Why not use ship wheels, life buoys and such to express your love for the cool waters?
We just loved this room! Notice how the shelf in the corner, is shaped like half a boat!
Surfboards have other uses, other than riding on waves. Put them on your wall or use it as a coffee table!
If you like abstract art and want to show your beach-lust subtly, get ideas from this room. Super stylish!
And this one just blew away our mind! A little boy’s room with a ship inspired reading nest, complete with ladder. Pure fun!
