Bring the Beach Home
Being at the beach might be your idea of the ultimate in relaxation—but who says you can’t bring that vacation vibe home? You can, with these simple ideas.
Color is one of the quickest and easiest ways to transform your space into a laidback oasis. Think about the sand, the waves, and the sky of your favorite vacation destination as you’re choosing your palette.
The beach look is all about being light and breezy. That being said, older and darker furniture can get a quick upgrade with slipcovers or paint. Modern options are available in washable fabrics that make caring for them … well … a breeze. Choosing lighter materials for certain surfaces, such as light driftwood for your mirror frames, can also bring the coast to your space.
Keep It Subtle
Being beachy doesn’t mean white washing everything. Subtlety can have a great impact too—a few accessories, such as a small shell collection, can add charm without bordering on being kitschy.
With the right colors, covers, and accessories, you can enjoy that beach feeling all year round, right in your home. Checkout even more great tips from MirrorMate.
