Under the Sea
Create a gallery wall with simple black frames, where you can switch out the artwork depending on the season. Drawings of different starfish, like the ones used by RMSer rnhey, are perfect for summer.
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. Design by RMSer angelineguido.
Decorate an entry or hall table with a coastal vignette. Find one commanding object, like the antique mirror RMSer Lulu D uses here, and surround it with other accessories of varying scale, but similar style.
Blue and white is the quintessential color scheme for any nautical-inspired setting. After removing the drywall behind the bed to create a unique focal wall of painted wood slats, RMSer laylapalmer completes this clean, cozy guest bedroom makeover with a vintage oar hung above the bed.
A soothing color palette is essential to any beachy design. To create a relaxing retreat that reminds her of the ocean, RMSer kathysue incorporates cottage-inspired furnishings, beach glass bottles and beautiful white shells.
From the Seashore
Swapping out a mantel display with the season breathes fresh life into your space. RMSer moredesign creates a breezy vignette of metallic and white seashells. A coral-inspired chandelier and driftwood mirror complete the look.
Dress up plain wooden chairs and add a coastal touch with floor-length white slipcovers. A sisal rug lays the foundation for this refreshingly casual dining room, which is topped with a Paris street light chandelier.
Cozy texture and tropical spirit make woven accessories the perfect addition to this laid-back style. RMSer DWIGHTLOUDAN creates a unified look in this breakfast area by repeating the organic fibers in the light cover, area rug and placemats.
From the mother of pearl sink to the beadboard wainscoting, this cottage-inspired bathroom is refined yet simple at the same time. Carefully placed starfish add just the right touch of beach. Design by RMSer Campbell1082.
