Whether you’re updating a seaside abode or just looking to bring the beach home, consider these 5 design tricks.
Into the blue. Pops of navy in unexpected places enhance the seaside vibe. The marlin above the mantel adds a touch of whimsy to traditional decor.
Bring the outdoors in. Hanging a large piece of driftwood and incorporating plants and sea glass–inspired accent pillows will have you feeling the ocean breeze in no time.
Break with tradition. Adorning walls with utilitarian objects like oars and nautical flags creates interest and adds texture to bright spaces.
Keep it simple. Sometimes less really is more. A bold lantern light fixture paired with a murky accent wall feels beachy without being overdone.
