Beach House Decorating Ideas

Here are a few clever decorating ideas for giving your house some coastal chic!

Under the Sea


Create a gallery wall with simple identical frames with a nautical bases theme - drawings, photos or 3d real life seaside objects will all work equally well.

An Assortment of Texture

A variety of fabrics yield the relaxed atmosphere synonymous with beach style. A serene blue painting evokes visions of the ocean and sky, while on the coffee table, twine balls and distressed accessories add a touch of weathered texture.

Imaginative Displays

Decorate an entry or hall table with a coastal vignette. Find one commanding object, like a vintage mirror or a nautical print, and surround it with other accessories of varying scale, but similar style.

Boathouse Chic

Blue and white is the quintessential color scheme for any nautical-inspired setting. After the addition of the painted wooden slats to create a focal point in the room a vintage oar was hung above the bed to create added interest without detracting from the feature wall. Striped ticking bedlinen completes this clean, cosy bedroom makeover.

Peaceful Hues

A soothing color palette is essential to any beachy design. Create a relaxed, calming retreat that incorporates colours of the ocean and it's beachside surrounds. Add beach-inspired furnishings, glass bottles, natural textures and beautiful white shells to complete the look.

From the Seashore

Nice details

Swapping elements on a mantel display with the season breathes fresh life into your space. Create a breezy, seaside vignette of coral, seashells, candles and driftwood. Keep the arrangement and palette simple for the best results.

Casually Chic

Use a base palette of crisp white for walls, ceilings, even floorboards then dress up sofas and armchairs with white slipcovers. Add wooden textures like the teak coffee table and the recylced wooden box to give it a natural, organic feel. A sisal rug lays the foundation for this refreshingly casual 'Shabby Chic' style living room. Green glass bottles, a vintage maritime map and a cane pendant add the finishing touches.

Natural Additions

Natural textures and a tropical spirit make woven accessories the perfect addition to laid-back beachy vibe. Create a coastal feel with organic fibers such as cane, rattan, bamboo and sisal. Here we see them used in pendant lights, bar stools and placemats to create a relaxed feel.

Seaside Luxe

Add a little seaside luxe! From the shell pendant, to the free standing bath and the fabulous ocean view, this stunning bathroom is refined and luxurious but simple and beachy at the same time.
