Default Beach Home Dcor 101

If you have ever rented a beach house for the summer, then you know
the level of relaxation and peace you can experience when surrounded
by beach home decor. So why not try it year round by adding the beach
home dcor to any room that needs a facelift? Since we cant all live
by the coast, this is the next best way to bring seaside living into
your everyday life. The most obvious way to add beach home dcor to
your house is to make a nautical statement. It is easy to find
inexpensive boat or yacht models that you can place naturally on your
shelves. A clever decorator will find small anchors or buoys to hang
as art work. If you anchor these designs with wicker or white
furniture, you can really bring the beach home dcor together.
Furniture and colors tend to be neutral in shades with many whites,
beiges, tans, light blues, and yellows used as the palette. Try
collecting accessories from the coast when you are shopping for your
beach home dcor. Shapely glass jars filled with seashells can make a
nice statement. Stacking a few bottles together, maybe with sand or
rocks in them, can actually look like art when done correctly. If you
go on a beach trip, walk along the beach and pick up things along your
way to bring home. Nothing will add to your beach home dcor better
than personal items from favorite family vacations. The Cape Cod
Beach Home DcorCape Cod style furniture and beach home dcor is more
than just the furniture itself; it is a way of life. It is about the
feeling of the ocean breezes, the open air, and the clean natural
emotion of relaxation that is evoked from the furniture. Cape Cod
style furniture really came about in the 1930s to the 1950s. People
were looking for a way to slow down and enjoy life. The Cape was very
popular at the time, a vacation spot that people would travel days to
get to. It was a haven of serene tranquility but very creative with
artists, poets, performers, and those with a passion for art. When
arriving, it was like stepping into a different era. The houses and
furniture had clean lines, neutral colors, simple curves, and
furniture styles that we would now consider shabby chic. Everything
was fresh and lively, just like Cape Cod itself. Beach home decor was
incredibly influenced by Cape Cod and the thought of better times.
You can easily have this tranquility. Start by using the seashore as
your inspiration, by taking the colors and lines from the sailboats,
the water, the rocks, and even the seagulls. Use your imagination,
and you can be living on the coast in no time. Easy Home Decor
