When you think of colors for your beach home décor, you usually picture various shades of blues or pale greens paired with a lot of white. Occasionally, you’ll see a little pink or yellow thrown in, but traditionally nautical colors tend to be more on the blue-green spectrum. Whatever your preference, you can always use eye-catching accent pieces to spice things up a bit. We suggest trying gold.
Gold accent pieces can take the most ordinary room and transform it into an exquisite masterpiece. These gold accent pieces are sure to get people talking while making your beach home look absolutely fabulous.

Take things one step further with your décor by adding your own special DIY touch. This idea from JustSomethingIWhippedUp.com and posted on Home Talk is not only stunning but super simple and inexpensive to create. Take some time to comb the beach and pick up a number of oyster shells. Wash them well and make sure they are thoroughly dried. Paint the inside of the shells carefully with a metallic gold paint and allow time for drying. Place these dishes throughout your beach home wherever you need just a simple splash of glitz and color.
Mirrors are always a great way to fill empty space in your beach home. They provide a depth that an ordinary wall hanging doesn’t. Check out this antique gold round sun mirror from our Cottage & Bungalow collection. Measuring a generous 30 inches in diameter, this piece is perfect for a larger empty wall or maybe even above the sofa. And the best part of choosing this lovely piece for your beach house collection is that even on a rainy day you can still find a little ray of sunshine.
