Bring Tranquil In Your House With Coastal Decor
Coastal decor helps bring a little of the sea inside, no matter how far away from the real thing. Coastal decor often relies on a cool, neutral palette to promote a sense of rest and ease. You can consider using colors such as off white, light blue or sea green. Each incorporates a color from the beach that can also work to have a calming effect on those who come into the room. Putting up a wall border that has seashells or small ships on it can also add to the effect. Using shells for coastal decor can also bring in some of the outdoors. One option is to search for shells on the beach; another is to purchase them already cleaned and, chances are, in perfect condition. Put them in small bowls around the house or buy items that have shells on them, such as lamps, wind chimes or picture frames.
Wood floors not only go well with coastal decor, but they can be very easy to clean, which can be useful for getting sand and other debris out. They come in various types and shades, however, light-colored flooring work best with the other decor in the home. If hardwood floors aren’t an option, light-colored carpeting, such as beige or off white, can look nice as well.
