A palatial villa on the sea-shore with a bright airy design, wooden floors all over the house, and decor with white shades and soft watery theme! Did this sentence about a beachy vibe just give you goosebumps? If yes, then you are also one of the beach house lovers who wish to spend their entire life in a home that has all textures of the beach.
But, sadly, here in India, you either have to settle in Mumbai or Goa for a life on the sea-shore or you can buy a vacation home in any of these seaside cities. However, it is not possible for everyone to afford the exorbitant rates of a beach house. So, if you live in a city, you don’t have to kill the beach house fanatic living inside you.
Here are a few tips to give your city home a breezy beach house aesthetic:
Play with Neutral Shades
Any beach house you see, either in the movies or just the pictures of it, one common thing you will note is that each one of it would be done in different shades of white or other soothing neutral colors. Off-white, eggshell, taupe, soft grey, beige, floral white, Spanish grey and ash grey are some popular hues of neutral colors to give your home a beachy look. Since, your house will likely be in an urban environment, you get play with pops of vibrant colors here and there to keep the balance.
Keep it Open and Airy
Beach homes are all about spaciousness. A box like home closed on all sides will never give a feeling of breezy beach house. You need to keep it airy. Do not cover all the space with furniture; leave as much open space on the floor as possible. If your home has large windows, it is even better for the vibe. Dress your windows with flowy white curtains.
Choose a Subtle Decor Theme
Subtlety is the key to a perfect beach decor. Bring elegant items of decor to adorn your home while keeping it casual at the same time. Not only the furniture but door knobs, handles and door mats also matter a lot. Use soft linens, shell decor, ornamental motifs and sailor posters to create the ambience.
Bring Texture into Play
Since most of the beach houses are done in neutral shades, textures play a very important role in the setup. You need to add warmth and a spring-like feeling to the home. Choose your furniture wisely; those pieces that complement the beauty of your beach decor theme.
Beach houses are stylish as well as casual at the same time. Get the minimalism right. Throw pillows, fireplace, comfy couches, and large balconies with alot many plants- all these create the right ambience for a beach house. After everything is in place, sit in your beautiful beach house balcony, and enjoy a cup of hot coffee with your loved one.
