Beach Decor: Creating Your Year-Round Paradise

No matter what time of year it is, beach-inspired decor can give you a taste of paradise, right at home.  Whether you are decorating a single room in your home or trying to create a year-round escape, choosing a beachy theme is one of the easiest paths to instant relaxation. In order to make this area as peaceful as possible, you will want to keep these hints in mind when creating your year-round paradise.

Keep the Color Pallette Simple

The beach theme can often start to look and feel cluttered if you don’t stick to a simple palette and idea. Choose no more than one or two colors from each of the following categories to keep your space cohesive and complementary.


Classic beige, crisp white, or stone grey – choosing a neutral base color is the easiest place to start. Think about the larger areas in the space you are decorating and fill it with these neutrals to keep the space feeling clean, airy and bright.

Highlight the best part of the beach, coastal waters can be represented by a wide range of shades. Foamy greens, bright clear blues or deep purples. Decide on the mood you want to convey and choose the the color you want to make the focus of your room.

Think “bright” instead of “yellow”. Depending on the time of day, the sun reflects many different colors so there is no need to exclude anything. Whether you prefer the deep oranges and reds of a sunrise or sunset or the clear whites and lemon yellows of the midday sun, use this element to highlight your space and bring your room together.

Bring Nature Inside

Don’t be afraid to bring the outdoors in! You can include elements from the outdoors, sand, shells and plants into your home. This does not always have to be mean shell adorned lampshades or bundles of driftwood. Instead, include subtle hints of the outdoors with prints on fabrics, sculptures or posters. The below example is a chic way to bring a bit of the outside, in without cluttering the small space.
