How about some inspiration to spark your creative side to life? We have a lot of interior design ideas for you to check out. After seeing them, you’ll want to upgrade your beach house.

Turquoise Accent Wall

When you tell people to describe the beach, turquoise is one color that comes up all the time. This is because the ocean is sometimes seen to be that color. You can never go wrong with adding turquoise to your beach house color scheme. Give it a turquoise accent wall? You can then keep the living room furniture and accessories in neutral colors for a good blend.

White-themed Living Space

Beach houses come in different sizes and sometimes sizes can determine the decor style used. White-themed living space is a good choice to make a small beach house look bigger and more spacious. If you’re worried about getting stains on the white surfaces, the chances are less since you don’t stay in your beach house all year round. When it comes to decorating the rest of the house, the color options are many but we recommend sea-inspired colors. If you’re going for a light and airy feel, you can decorate with neutral colored pieces.

Wooden and Woven Surfaces

Around the beach, you can spot wooden and woven lounge chairs and tables. This is why whenever you see a woven surface, it reminds you of the beach. You can do the same with your beach house. Fill it with wooden and woven surfaces that will keep you reminded of where you are. Those lounge chairs are usually quite durable and are built for relaxation.

Your keepsakes can be anything you find on the beach that means something to you. It can be seashells, a collection of tiny seashells, sea glass, a glass jar of beach sand, and even pebbles. The shelf should be wooden and if you can get an antique one, that’s even better. Invite anyone to your beach house and you can tell the story behind each of your finds.
