This summer bring the sea to your home. Give your house a beach inspired makeover, reminiscent of sand, surf and the sun.
• Maximize natural light in your house. Louvered windows, for example, readily lend themselves to the beach house aura, while allowing light to flow into the home.
• Give your home a beach style makeover by adding accessories that are a reminiscence of a beach. Transparent glass bottles filled with sand and shells, for example, are the standard ‘sea-side’ table top show-piece.
• Use neutral tones and a soothing palette-pale blues, soft yellows and crisp whites-along with pops of bright colour, for giving that authentic beach décor. For example, if you have a dining table set that is off-white, opt for a punch of colour with starkly contrasting chair cushions.
• Give your walls the blue tint. Make your walls your canvas! Paint your walls neatly in alternating stripes of deep blue and crisp white. Add a dash of seaside fun to your home by painting your walls a single solid colour.
