The sand, sea and the surf always remind us of happy times. The time spent on a beach on long vacations always makes us long for more of the sunshine and the sea. While it may always not be possible to go for long vacations, you can always invite the sea to your home. Here are a few summertime home decor ideas inspired by the sea.
Have a “sea” effect in your home
The first thing that comes to our mind when we think of sea is the color blue. Blue in its various shades especially the nautical blue can be used in home decor. Try to create a summertime color scheme with colors like grays and sandy beiges for your entire house. Include grassy greens and deep corals as accent colors in your home.
Adopt coastal living ideas in your house. Use bar stools and breakfast bars for a casual living and also to have a touch of holidays in your daily life.
Blue and white area rugs in natural fibers like sisal or sea grass will make your home look cool. You can also get nautical inspired area rugs that are bright and instantly give a vibrant touch to home decor.
When you think of nautical home decor, you have to incorporate shells and other mementos that we collect from beaches in the home. Get picture frames made out of shells of various shapes. You can use the idea as a DIY project for your kids who will be happy to chip in their own ideas.
Wallpapers with sea inspired images are also a great way to enjoy the summer. They will make your home look breezy and remind you of the lovely time you spent on the beaches.
Use a table to showcase the seashells you have been collecting through the years. You can even have sand and pebble candle holders. Place them in the bedroom or in the dining area and you can have a nice “sea” feeling in your home.
