Striped patterns are a distinctive attribute found in coastal decorating. Thin stripes or thick, multi-colored monochrome furnishings, upholstery, bedding, and pillows in the coastal theme are all probable contenders for materials using this pattern.
While stripes are attractive, in order to keep them from overpowering a room, solid fabrics should be integrated into the furnishings as well.
Solid fabrics in colors ranging from dark and light blues to neutral beiges and ivories are great colors to begin with. Another fantastic decorative item to consider including is metal wall art in ocean-esque colors. Laser cut metal wall art or cold rolled steel wall art can bring an amazing spectrum of color to any room.
One simple method to get your furniture looking beachier, without actually having to purchase an entirely new couch, loveseat, recliner, etc. is to use slipcovers. Bigger items such as the couch and arm chair can be reasonably veiled under slipcovers, which have numerous advantages, such as their ability to be easily cleaned, the option to change them out to match particular occasions or seasons, the furniture will be kept safe from spills and wear and tear, and finally, if the covered furnishings have become aged or damaged, no one will be the wiser.
Windows are characteristically lightly covered, particularly if you happen to have a view of the sea. Rather than cover the windows up completely, consider drop down linen or bamboo blinds, Venetian blinds, or plantation shutters, all of which have the ability to be tucked up or away to wholly let the surroundings inside. Lastly, carpet, floor, or tile covering mats made of sea grass and palm thatch will naturally fit into the coastal or beach theme, and are particularly functional as they are simple to preserve and do a superior job of keeping sand isolated to the doorway and entrance areas.
