When one thinks of California living, an image of crisp clean and pure spaces comes up. Neutral soft tones on furniture, walls, and accessories best define this timeless beach home style.
It focuses on merging the indoors and outdoors to create ease of livability and comfort. If you are inspired by this timeless home design here are a few things you can do to incorporate it into your home.
How to Go California Casual – Beach Home Style
Go for an Earthy Color Palette
Creating the California style requires you to choose colors that resemble the sea, sky, and sand. These are mostly whites and off-whites for walls and ceilings, neutral upholstery and light woods for furniture to achieve the light, airy and open spaces. Avoid dark woods always as they may feel heavy and may not flow with the color palette.
Pieces to consider:
Bring in Plants
Remember the goal is to bring the outdoors in. Incorporating plants adds life, energy, and color to your room.
But don’t just pick anything, the variety you choose should be determined by the amount of natural light your space can provide. With this, you also get to bring in unique handcrafted pottery to help tell your west coast style story better.

Layer Rich Textures
As far as layering texture goes – literally hold them up in your arms and then throw them up in the air. Wherever they come to rest, they live!
You could also layer them on top of each other with contrasting textures and subtle patterns to give them a more minimalist approach. Go for really textured wall hangings such as wooden beads or woven art. Consider an upholstered headboard and layer, layer, layer!
Pieces to consider:
Opt for Natural and Organic Materials
Natural materials will help in making your space clean and pure. Get sisal rugs, and linen or woolen throws and pillows to bring warmth, texture and add color to make your space airy and light. Choose furniture made of raw woods, woven rattan or with live edges to make it more rustic and natural.
Comfort is Key
With this style, everything should tempt you to sit down and relax. The furniture should be soft and comfortable with easy to live with fabrics like caramel leather and linen or cotton – something easy to care for and relaxed.
California casual with its minimalist yet serene and welcoming appearance is appealing to any laid back, carefree spirit who is all about good vibes and well-balanced space.
