While it can feel like a trek to get to the beach, you can bring the beachy-coastal look to your home in no time. Here are three things you can do to catch the wave vibes in your space without getting sand between your toes.
- Pretty pillows: Nothing spruces up a tired look like fresh pillows in vibrant colors. All home design stores in the area, like HomeGoods and Target, are featuring beach-life pillows in an array of sizes and colors. While turquoise pillows bring to mind island waters, you can also throw in linen/neutral pillows that feature simple shells. Perhaps a vacation saying will do the trick? Find a pillow with words or pictures that remind you of a past (or upcoming) vacation. Seeing a beachy reminder every day can help you evoke warm memories or stir up excitement!
- Designer Shelf: An empty corner or bare wall can get a quick makeover with a shelf system to highlight trinkets and beloved treasures. Gather or purchase ornate shells, fill a vase with sand, and add bold touches to the ensemble with signature pieces in shades of blue that remind you of sky and surf.
- Spa Oasis: A salt-water soak can work wonders, even in your bath! To bring a coastal vibe to your bathroom, consider tiling your tub walls or adding calming blue tile accents to your shower. Add ocean wave sounds as background music, and a candle and soap with a nautical theme, and you’ve got a relaxing day at the beach, right from your own home!
