People flock from all parts of the world to experience the beauty and tranquility of the beach. These people likely look forward to their seaside vacation for months at a time. As one of our favorite quotes says, “At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun.”
If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, then you’re probably familiar with our fascination with interior design that reflects a casual life on the coast. Yet, at the end of the day, what we love most about beachfront living is the fantastic opportunity to build a wondrous and adventurous life with your loved ones.
The right colors will help compliment a calming and peaceful environment. Light blues and rustic decorations reflect a lighthearted atmosphere. Turquoise, white and light floral accents are the perfect combination for creating a laid back atmosphere for your beach home.
Slow down and savor life by gathering your friends and family around the dinner table. Look for a table you can comfortably sit and dine at for hours at a time. Choose a warm, but practical material that will make your dinner table a cherished part of family traditions.
Make your home a sanctuary by setting the mood for comfort and relaxation. In addition to choosing the right colors, use multiple light sources — including natural light — and enhance comfort with fluffy pillows and bedding. You can also create a place to sit back, relax and listen to the soothing sounds of the sea.
These are just some of our ideas for making your beachfront living experience a truly serene one. What are some of your own? Share with us in a comment below!
