Are you looking to keep those refreshing beach vibes alive and well throughout your house this summer? Here are a five ways you can recreate your favorite sunny seaside in the comfort of your home.
1. Surround yourself with reminders of the ocean.
What’s your favorite thing about the sea:the smell of sea breeze, the blue of the waters, or the sea creatures you meet while diving? Place accessories that remind you of these in various areas so that each room can remind you of what you love most about the ocean.
2. Add touches of the sky in its multi-colored beauty.
Nothing beats watching the sky over the ocean as it changes color — from the gold of sunrise to light blue with white clouds floating in the afternoon, to the purples and pinks during sunset.
3. Don’t forget the sand.
What’s a beach without sand? You may not want to feel sand between your toes while walking around your house but you can add some sand-inspired décor for a bright and vibrant beach feel.
4. Recreate the sight of palm trees and the feel of cool winds.
Everyone knows that one of the most relaxing colors is green and that soft winds can be very calming. That’s why the sight of palm trees, especially on a breezy afternoon, is one of the best things about being on the beach.
5. Throw a luau party.
Throw on a sarong, take out the grill and drinks, invite some good friends for an evening of revelry, and make your own beachfront bar come to life!
