Beach Chic for Landlubbers and Beach Bums

by Kim

Heritance® hardwood shutters

This is the time of year when retail stores and catalogs are filled with beach décor, and it makes this gal (me!) who grew up on a Southern California beach and ended up in a Portland suburb long for a beach house!

But you don’t need a beach house to have a beachy look. Beach Chic is currently a very popular style, which I personally love. It suits a casual lifestyle and features design elements such as bare floors with area rugs, painted furniture and slipcovers.  It incorporates a color palette of my favorites: blue, aqua, coral, yellow and sand with loads of white.

Beach-inspired bedspread from the Pottery Barn.

Pottery Barn is a great resource for a beach casual look with their shell motif linens, natural jute rugs, baskets, and slip covered couches.   I also love combing through the pages of Coastal Living magazine when I feel the urge to “get beachy”.

Vignette® Modern Roman Shades

At the window I love the soft folds of the Vignette® Modern Roman Shades in a casual linen fabric or white Heritance® hardwood shutters to beautifully filter sunlight into a room and complete the look. The best part? Landlubbers can enjoy this look too!
