How to Beach-Up Your Home

Today I’m going to walk you through step-by-step how to beach-up your home.  Even if you don’t live by the sea, it’s super easy to get that breezy beach vibe flowing through your house.  Chances are, if you’re anything like me, you already have a lot of the elements needed for a coastal design.  It’s just all about how you put the look together and finish everything off!

How to Beach-Up Your Home

Let’s start with fabrics. Using more natural fibers like linen and wicker around your home can make it feel more connected to nature i.e. the sea

Incorporate sea shells as trinket dishes on coffee tables or in bookcases.

Bring in the scent of the sea through coastal soaps, candles and essential oil diffusers.

Weathered wood fits perfectly into a beach home and it’s super easy to distress a piece you already have with some white wash and sand-paper.

The bedroom is another great place to add more natural fabrics, a linen throw and simple striped pillows add just the right touch.

If your beach home doesn’t have beach views, consider adding beach prints instead!

Soft blue hues on cabinets offer reminders of the sea

Now let’s take a look at the outside of your home. If you’ve got room for outdoor seating make sure you take advantage of it!

A cozy spot in the shade, surrounded by plants and still maintaining that breezy-beach vibe through striped pillows and wicker seating.

Dutch doors and weathered stoops feel super coastal. If you rent or are afraid to saw your door in half, don’t worry! Just add a beachy doormat and some plants to beach-up your entrance.

Renovated Beach House

The owners of this renovated beach house, literally took  what once was a hodgepodge from the 70’s and 80’s and turned it into an airy light-filled beach house!  I love all the white (of course!) and the plantation style glass shutters, not to mention all the amazing views of the ocean.  Take the tour:

Coastal Sydney Home Tour

One thing I’m loving about this coastal home located in Sydney, Australia is how well it’s all put together.  There’s a layering of nautical goodness that carries throughout this beach house that I can’t get enough of!  Take a look and I’ll show you what I mean:

Sydney Beach Cottage

If you like a good open floor plan then you’re going to love this beautiful beach cottage located right near the water in Sydney, Australia.  I especially love the simple wall art crafted from natural materials that the beach cottage is decorated with.  Take a look to see what I’m talking about:

Sydney Beach Cottage

Pool views from the bedroom? Yes, please!!

You can never go wrong with a good window seat!

Check out the wall art, but we haven’t gotten to my favorite piece yet…

Notice the wall art in the far background, don’t worry we’ll take a bit of a closer look later in the post.

I love how this open floor plan allows so many rooms to have a pool-side view

Do we think it’s possible to recreate this wall art with drift wood?

Nantucket Inspired Beach House

This Nantucket inspired beach house is easy breezy with a side of fun!  From swings in the living room to the family motto tiled into the bathroom floors, I love it all.  Oh yeah and lots and lots of white, my personal favorite.  I also have a deep appreciation (being serious!) for the lack of window treatments in this space.  Why obstruct the views?  Do we really need curtains in our kitchens?  I say let the sunshine in!  Check out what this beach house is all about >>

 

Nantucket Inspired Beach House

Really obsessed with those chairs and that ceiling fan!

The kitchen is all white but still feels homey

more curtains, more problems, that’s what I always say…

Swings in the living room? Yes, please!!

California Bungalow – Beach House Tour

I’m loving this beach chic California bungalow located in L.A.!  Not only is this beach house beautiful and chic but so is its owner.  I love how clean this house feels while still adding lots of earthy elements like driftwood and wicker.  I also spied some pampas grass which I’ve been meaning to get my hands on.  Take the tour >
