Tips and Ideas for Bringing the Beauty of the Beach to Your Home
If you love the calm, laid-back feeling of sand, sunshine and island life, the launch of summer is the perfect time to incorporate that inspiration into your home décor.
Try these tips and ideas to create a space that feels like a vacation from the outside world, year-round.
Start with Color
Bringing the beauty of the beach home starts with surrounding yourself with ocean-inspired colors. Combine shades of blue and green with neutrals such as tan, white and gray for an island-inspired color palette. Start with a blue leather sofa, such as the Kelso, and accent it with natural materials and soft neutrals. Artwork is another great way to bring the spirit of the beach into a room, while tying the colors in a space together.
Focus on Relaxation
One of the most appealing parts of island living is the relaxed lifestyle. As you design your space, incorporate furniture and décor that helps create this atmosphere. Recliners and motion sofas make it easy to relax in comfort and style. The Cosmo’s soft white leather cover provides a neutral backdrop ideal for a modern coastal aesthetic.
Capture the Spirit
Island living doesn’t have to mean over-stuffed and excessively casual—it’s more of a feeling than a specific style. If your taste runs more traditional, infuse your space with the island vibe by focusing on your color palette and relaxation theme. The Warrendale Sofa Group has more classic and refined styling, and is available in a stunning Shoreham Blue, the perfect shade for an upscale island design aesthetic.
Once you’ve brought the beauty of the outdoors to your interior, consider taking the comforts of indoor living to your outdoor spaces. The Westbrook Reclining Sofa Group from the Barcalounger Outdoor Living line includes a 3-position recliner that’s perfect for beach vacation-inspired rest and relaxation.
Accent with Style
Sometimes all it takes is a touch of color from a few accent pillows to refresh a space. Check out our new Outdoor Living Pillow Program offering decorative pillows designed for outdoor living.
Available in four sizes and with a variety of fabric, pattern and color options, these stylish outdoor accessories in the Outdoor Living Pillow Program make it easy to elevate the look of an outdoor space.
Here’s to a summer where you bring the relaxation of island living into your everyday life, and the beauty of the beach to your home — inside and out!
