Total Beach House Guide
Enjoy our room-by-room decorating tips to help you capture the coastal style wherever you live.
The Living Room
Outline your design. Call attention to a room's architectural elements, such as trim and molding, by either leaving them natural or painting them in a punchy hue. Give upholstered furniture a similar wake-up call with contrasting welting or colorful accent pillows.
In the Kitchen
Update your look. Take inspiration from the sandy shores when selecting countertops. The earthy tones of concrete and Crema Europa limestone make them a perfect backdrop for bolder details, like the oversize drum shade in a crewel-like print.
In the Dining Room
Take a fresh approach. Scatter several small items, instead of one large centerpiece, down the length of your table. Keep conversation flowing by choosing shorter arrangements that guest can easily see over.
Create a dream room. Emphasize small details. Accessories often make or break a room, so be sure to choose accent pieces with an extra something to them. Let the way you showcase your collectibles be as creative as the items you display.
Design with confidence. Opt for a pedestal sink in close quarters. Your bath will look and feel more spacious. If you need extra storage, use inexpensive woven baskets under the sink. they're an attractive solution for rooms lacking built-in closets and medicine cabinets.
