Decorating Ideas For Your Beach House
Decorating a beach house is more simple than a normal house, because the ocean get you the inspiration you need and the shells you find on the beach are more then perfect to use as decorations for your beach house interiors. Here are some decorating ideas for your beach house that may give you a new inspiration. The best ideas for decorating a beach house in a classic style is to simply incorporate decorations that make you think of the sea. Painting the rooms in cool blues and greens with white contrasts (in moldings and furniture) will help carry this theme throughout your home. Wicker furniture adds to the beachy feel, as well as custom built pieces made of material such as drift wood. Collections of seashells and sea glass picked up on your walks along the sand, housed in decorative containers and baskets, give your space a personal feel. Artwork that features your favorite part of living near the water finish off the classical style.
If you want a romantic setting that incorporates the traditional ideas for decorating a beach house, the trick is to change the artwork and how you display your beachy decor. Prints and paintings done in black and white add a mysterious feel to your rooms. Painting the walls a standard white and adding furniture that is more modern, such as wrought iron and glass, will help the space feel more contemporary. The color comes in by housing your collections of items such as seashells and sea glass in shadow boxes, either hung on the wall or even made into a coffee table or side tables.
