Do you love the sound of the waves lapping at the shore? That gentle crash of water hitting sand in rhythmic relaxation coupled with the soft breeze? You can’t help but feel your cares slipping away and your muscles un-tensing with each moment that passes. Of course, if you, like most of us, don’t happen to live on island time, you can usually only dream about the next vacation. But, why not bring that beachy vibe home with your decor? By incorporating various hues of blue and tropical accessories, you can make every day spent at home a step closer to the sand and surf.
Coastal Bedding and Bath
Make your two most-often used rooms awash with the sights of the ocean. Bedding and shower curtains in strokes of blue—from the deepest azure to the lightest teal—freshen the room. Symbols of the sea, such as seashells, coral and sea critters, invoke the spirit of peacefulness you desire. Bedroom accessories such as blankets, throw pillows and bathroom essentials such as towels, mats, hooks and holders complete your oasis.

Tranquil Decor that’ll Shore-ly Fit Your Style
Your sanctuary deserves pieces that inspire that laid-back decor you crave. Think crisp white tabletop items and weathered-look artwork to bring in waves of airy beauty. Rope and net details tie in to the naval nuance. Lamps with pineapple bases, braided rugs and faux fauna keep the sea life theme alive. Mix in your own beach souvenirs for a blend of real and realistic.

Dining & Entertaining on Land
Throw a seafaring soiree at home with dinnerware and linens with a coastal blue theme. Glasses with a frosty ombré surface get the party started by setting the tone. Chambray tablecloths and napkins bring in that casual feel. Dinnerware in fresh white or shades of blue are the perfect backdrop to your delicious coastal meal—seafood perhaps? Put on some background tropical music and you’ve got a celebration that everyone wants to join.
