It’s the middle of summer, and there’s no better way to bask in the sun than by bringing home some coastal vibes. If you love the feeling of walking on the beach but are either miles away from the ocean or too busy to get down to one, it shouldn’t detract you from experiencing it right in your own home. That’s why we’re here to give you some tips on how to bring the feel of crashing waves and sandy beaches into various rooms using a home on the coast of Savannah, GA as inspiration.
Savannah Grace is a nineteenth-century townhouse located in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District. It’s a beautiful vacation rental that takes advantage of its old world structure and location. Even though it neighbors an ocean, the interior design is what makes this home a paradise for beach dwellers. By tying in features of beach life into the furniture and accents, you’re able to simulate coastline ambience no matter where you live.
Neutrality | Add only hints of light color on walls or furniture. For example, Savannah Grace plays around with color in either the walls or the furniture, as opposed to both. In the living room, white and beige pieces are surrounded by light blue walls–simulating warm sand under clear blue skies. In the dining room, the painted dining table gives off a red hue and becomes the room’s statement piece. In the bedroom, a cool mint green wall gives the room an aquatic, almost reef-like, nature.
Eclecticism | Combine two different styles in the same room. In the dining room, the painted wood table and painted x-back wood chairs complement the four industrial chairs beautifully. It even resembles a ship’s construction.
Accents | Small accessories like the lamp in the guest room really energizes the neutral tones with its sandy shade and subtle light color. Attaching a painted framed mirror adds a bit of rustic flare to a room or hallway. Playing around with height and texture in the kitchen makes this important room a hot spot.
Tip* Layering your home with coastal decor is especially useful for when you’re working from home. By adding the very things that relax you, you’re able to work more comfortably and efficiently.
The best news? Even if you can’t book a few nights at Savannah Grace this summer, you can still bring the beach to you. Find your local store and sign-up for the email list to be the first to know when coastal styles hit the floor!
