We’ve featured lots of great design options in our previous posts for those who are looking to incorporate a few new looks to their beach house. In this post, we’re going to take you back in history and feature some vintage beach decor from Cottage & Bungalow as well as some do-it-yourself ideas that are sure to be as much fun to create as they are to enjoy with your friends and family.
When you’re relaxing in your beach house, you want your surroundings to contribute to the laid-back ambiance. Stepping back in history reminds us of a much simpler time; a time when there were no electronic devices and life was a rich blend of pure love and laughter.
These classic swimwear signs are fun, new additions to vintage swimsuit collection. What better way to celebrate our history than with a vintage representation of what women used to wear during their leisurely trips to the beach?
There is even a classic lifeguard uniform to round out your collection. As always, these signs are made of high-quality components and are backed by American craftsmanship. Each piece is unique and brings with it a lovely reminder of days gone by.
We also loved this vintage ordinance sign from Just Something I Made. Even though it’s been a few decades since ladies on the beach wore bloomers, the nostalgia this sign brings to a room is incredible.
If you are crafty, you can create this beautiful sign in the comfort of your own home. Simply print the image from the free download and secure it to the surface of your choice. Hang wherever you want to lay down the law, 1940’s style.
Another great idea to amp up your nautical décor includes these free ocean themed graphics from The Graphics Fairy. Let your imagination run wild! From coasters to quilts, you can use these images in hundreds of ways. Try visiting your local office supply store and having your favorite image printed onto a large canvas frame.
Better yet, take three of your favorite images and create an ocean-themed series to hang in a hallway or on a large, open wall. Use an image of your choice to create a wall hanging to place on the front door of your beach house, and then use the same image to make invitations to a beach-themed get-together. The sky’s the limit!
Shells are a beautiful addition to any beach house décor. This free printable shell print from Ella Claire Inspired has an aged, vintage look with lovely cursive writing and browning edges.
Guests can learn all about different types of shells found near the ocean while enjoying this incredible treasure. Who wouldn’t love having this fascinating piece of artwork hanging in their beach home?
From swimsuits to shells, we’ve brought you a number of wonderful ideas to take your beach house back in time. The trend in vintage décor is growing more popular every day. Why not join in the fun and create a little beach house time machine of your own?
