The next best thing to lying on the sand: shore scenes. “Since these prints often have pastel hues, they’re easy to pair with pillows and rugs of all colors,” says designer Kristina Braun of Sausalito, CA. Hang one prominent piece (this one is from Society6), or go with a gallery of several small prints in white frames.

Beachy Vibes With Bedding
Nautical sheets are a simple way to beachify a bedroom, says Toronto-based designer Sarah Gunn. (This sailboat set is by Serena & Lily.) Fold the top sheet over the duvet so the pattern is visible. It’s fun to mix and match: Try a different pattern, like starfish or stripes, on the pillowcases. Sweet dreams!
