How To Decorate Your Home With Beachy Decor!
Who doesn’t love the beach? The sun, the sand, the waves… and now you can bring that feeling into your home with some beachy decor! Whether you want to create a full-on coastal oasis or just add a few subtle touches, there are plenty of ways to give your space that breezy, vacation-worthy vibe. Here are a few of our favorite ideas…
Beach glass is a great way to decorate your home with a beachy feel! Beach glass is simply sea glass that has been smoothed by the sand and waves over time. It’s often colorless or has a pale blue hue, but you can also find it in other colors like green and brown. Beach glass makes beautiful decorations when used in candles, vases, bowls, or picture frames. You can also use it to make jewelry, wind chimes, or other crafts!
Candles are another great way to add a touch of the beach to your home. Look for candles that have a nautical theme or candles that are made with beach glass or seashells. Having candles like this will help you feel like you’re at the beach even when you’re just sitting at home! I absolutely LOVE the candles from Light Scapes Candle! They have sea glass candles with beachy scents and they are to die for!
I received one of their sea glass candles in sweet pineapple and LOVE it!!! When I lit it for the first time, I could immediately smell the fresh pineapple filling my home. It smells so delish and had me craving pineapples! Yummy!
Add some emphasis colors to your home to give it that traditional nautical feel, look for reds, blues, and golds or yellows. If you’re going to combine the colors go for large, chunky bold mixes rather than fussy little prints.
Layer blues on top of each other, whether they match or not. Every shade of blue evokes feelings of the ocean and water in people so the bluer you add the more your home will feel like it’s connected to the water. Maybe you want to paint just one wall as an accent wall or maybe you want to paint the whole room! Either way, watery blue colors are the way to go when wanting to make your home have that beachy vibe!
Purchase some thick white rope at a craft store and start wrapping. Wrap it around lampshades, planters, pots, vases, and banisters. Use craft glue to glue it to itself and hold it in place. Tie-back curtains with rope and uses nautical knots, not bows. This DIY Beach Soap Dispenser would be adorable in any kitchen or bathroom!
Sand and Shells: How To Decorate Your Home With Beachy Decor!
One of the easiest ways to add a beachy touch to your home is with seashells. You can find these for free if you live near the beach, or you can purchase them online or at a craft store. Look for shells that are colorful and unique, and then display them in a glass jar or vase. You can also use seashells to make DIY decorations like wreaths, garlands, and votive holders.
Fill vases with sand and shells and use them as centerpieces. Place a candle in the middle for additional interest. Look for fish-shaped glass containers and fill them with your beach treasures. Scatter special shells across your mantle or place them around the home to keep memories of the beach nearby.
How fun are these green tea and lemongrass beach sand bath salts? They are perfect for a beach-themed bathroom! Display them near the bathtub or on the toilet tank! Super fun and creates a beachy theme in your bathroom!
For your kid’s room/s I thought this fun, beachy DIY Sand handprint would be an awesome way to not only hold onto a precious memory at the beach with family and friends but also makes a really fun decoration for a beach-themed room!
Pick up a few lanterns and scatter them around the house or create a focal point by hanging a row of them together. You can fill them with a variety of things including sprigs of herbs, limes, and lemons, small vases of flowers, tiny framed pictures, and candles.
Collect your favorite beach photos from summer’s past and create a wall of photos centered on the beach theme. This is a favorite for guests as they can see how the family has aged through the years and if you can include past generations it becomes even more interesting. I really love this DIY Beach Sea-Shell Frame! So easy to make and any picture (or even a mirror!) would look great in this beachy frame!
Part of beach decorating is a light and airy feel. Remove heavy drapery and replace it with light, white gauze to give your windows a summery feel and create the illusion of a breeze when there is none. If you’re not a great seamstress, fear not because there are many ways to make no-sew curtains that simply whip up in a flash.
Bring in the Wicker: How To Decorate Your Home With Beachy Decor!
White wicker furniture has a casual comfort that screams beach but natural colored wicker does the same. Consider moving some regular furniture out and adding a wicker chair or two with some beachy-colored or printed fabric cushions. If you don’t want to go that far consider using wicker baskets to bring add summery touches to your decorating scheme.
Organic Floor Covers
Look for organic mats or sisal rugs in sand colors that give the illusion of a sandy beach. A few throw rugs or a nice-sized area rug will complement other beach accents you’ve added to your room and bring the whole look together.
