Ocean-Inspired Home Decorating Ideas

Thinking about that island vacation you once took? Or those those lazy summer days? Do you miss that bright, beautiful and energizing aura of life on the beach? Recreate the same feeling by incorporating a coastal style interior into your home.

Coastal style decorating has now become a popular trend and one of the many favorites because of it’s easy, soft, and laid back vibe. It’s relaxing, airy and fresh, creating a cheerful atmosphere indoors.

The overall design is usually based on white or sand-colored foundation with blue as the primary accent color. Material-wise, the theme incorporates driftwood and sea-themed textures. Crisp white drapes or striped fabric also does the trick.

Ocean-inspired accents oftentimes seal the deal. Here are some examples of inspiring furniture pieces and accessories that go well with a coastal interior.
