Best Beach House & Coastal Living Tips
Beach homes are the envy of just about everyone, but just because you have the house doesn’t mean you have the style! There are three keys to a spectacular beach or coastal house: bring natural colors from the outdoors in; have a wall of windows; and decorate with found items from outside.
Let’s take a look at each one.

Nothing says coastal or beach style like a wall of windows with a view! It’s like having your own mural … but better. If you don’t have a big wall of windows, a good way to imitate that is by putting up several expansive mirrors. It’s a different look of course, but it has a similar vibe.
Incorporate Items from Outside
Using natural materials while decorating can really set the coastal tone. Things like shells, branches, sand, plants, rope … anything nautical works great!
