Beach House Style can be described as a relaxed, effortless, casual style of decorating characterised by whites, egg shell blue and beige hues. Stripes, nautical motifs, shells, coral & driftwood have forever etched a place in the hearts of those who love the beach house style.

 


 

Here are 5 beach house decorating ideas to create the feeling of a beach style paradise all year round.

#1 Bright colours and stripes

Nothing says 'beach style' like bright colours and stripes!! mix and match with reds, navy, beige and off white for a classic look.

 

 

 

 

 

#2 Nautical accents

A touch of classic nautical is a big enough hint that an ocean lover is in the house. White or beech coloured frames or shadow boxes filled with shells will do the trick. Hang a few colourful bunting flags for a classic beach vibe and add Accent cushions with coconut buttons to create a real beach theme.

 

 

 

#3 Bring nature indoors

One of my favourite ways to create an authentic beachy feel in a room, is to add a few shells or driftwood either in jars or bowls amongst books or other treasured possessions.

 

 


#4 Decorate with Bold Simple Patterns

Bring life and color to your outdoor room by adding cushion covers in simple patterns but vibrant hues like bright reversible orange/green stripes, chevron (zig-zags) or fishscales to give a coastal yet Summery feel. Make sure your cushion covers are specifically UV, mildew and water resistant for the outdoors so they last

 

 

#5 A Beach House Look

There's a fine line between shabby chic and beach style. If you're going for a more relaxed, shabby chic kind of look try using a soft, rustic neutral palette for decorating. When I think 'beach house', I think blue and white or beige and white striped napery or cushions.
