Ocean Inspired Interiors

Most people love the being near the water simply for the calming effect it creates. The stress of the day can melt away when you let go and allow yourself to listen to the natural water sounds around you. While some people are lucky enough to live near a body of water, others need to create a little ambiance to achieve the same effect.

 

When envisioning coastal living, think about what you would enjoy the most about it. This is how you get started on creating your dream living space. Life can feel cluttered and heavy from the weight of daily responsibilities. Coastal locations inspire thoughts of a relaxing getaway and a vacation. So use that for your inspiration when decorating.

 

Keep colors neutral and relaxing. Soft blues and khakis, clean whites and natural woods. Textures should be kept light and airy. A little thickness provides warmth without becoming too heavy. Natural light will also be a huge factor as you recreate a coastal look. Allowing light to reflect on your interior will give it a refreshing feeling but keep window treatments light and easy to keep open with tie-backs during the day.

 

Keep furniture style simple to maintain the theme of removing the weight of your day when you arrive home. Let the lake, sea or ocean provide you with inspiration in your decor. Touches of nautical theme or artwork depicting a beautiful pier or traveling sailboat can carry you away. Wicker pieces can give any space that quaint cottage look you may enjoy. If you have souvenirs from a vacation you enjoyed on the water, feel free to sprinkle them in where appropriate.

 

No matter where you reside, creating a coastal paradise in your home is possible. Take your time and choose pieces thoughtfully. This process is meant to create a relaxing environment, not more stress. In no time, it will all come together and you will be able to relax and turn on an ocean sounds soundtrack to set the mood. Now close your eyes, and it’s like you’re right there on the shore!
