If you love the beach look, good news! Coastal style decorating is one of the most budget-friendly choices. However, sometimes it takes a little inspirational help to achieve the look you want. If you love the look of an all-white decorating scheme but don’t know how to pull it off, what furniture you must already have, or not sure how to turn that drab table into coastal chic, don’t worry. It can be done! Use these tips to achieve the coastal look you want.
White is usually the predominant color in coastal style homes, but there really aren’t any hard and fast rules when it comes to colours. However, sticking to a color or two is a very budget-friendly way to go to the coast.
Blue and white are popular color combinations for the modern coastal look, but don’t be afraid to venture off the color spectrum. Think of the beach and ocean colors: use soft blue, teal or green colors and neutral beige or brown colors. These colors work well together and also with white.
Accessories transform a plain space into something edgier and also help capture the seaside look on a budget. Found items are free, so don’t forget to scour the shores for a great catch. Just be green and leave all living things alone. Shells that still have their mate inside will not give your living space a beautiful look or a pleasant smell.
Small pieces of driftwood, bottled sea glass, and sea weed or wicker baskets filled with shells are all finishing touches that accent your home and give it that beach or coastal chic look. Fill some pots with pampas grass, add some beach pictures or a seashell framed mirror, remember not to overdo it and add too many accessories. Simple is better.
